Now you can do transparent thingsMandelbulb 1.7.99 is out!!!
Unlike my version Jesse listened to my praises and added a separate slider for transparency so yes, you can add a reflective AND refractive sphere in the SAME image now
PLUS you can enable reflects on DIFS only for a best effect! Incredible!

No more noise on reciprocal fractalsNo more noise on reciprocal fractals3 years ago in Personal More Like This
With ReciprocalX,Y,Z functions you can get very awesome variations on IFS formulas, the only problem was that the DE was a lot inaccurate! Particularly in the Navi, the fractal never showed up correctly.
More, the only rotations allowed were multiple of 90°, to keep discontinuities horizontal / vertical...
I solved this annoying problem with reciprocalX3, Y3, Z3 - three new functions! Try them and you will be very surprised.
Even rotations are possible without annoying random cut-planes!
A must try imo. Needless to say; reciprocalX3 is completely different from reciprocalX2 ... There is no way to "convert" them too bad. You must study new parameters!
Update for Mandelbulb 3D - v1.8.3Jesse has released an updated version of Mandelbulb 3D - v1.8.3!Update for Mandelbulb 3D - v1.8.32 years ago in Personal More Like This

In Jesse's own words;
"Please read the textfile in the archive for a short documentation.
If this version does not work with Win2000, i can only say sorry, dunno why!
USE ONLY SAME PROGRAM VERSIONS TO CONTINUE ANIMATIONS OR BIG RENDERINGS DUE TO COLOR OR LIGHTING CHANGES! ALSO FORMULA UPDATES CAN CHANGE RENDERINGS!
What is new in version 1.8:
- New compiler, new look.
- Transparency option in postprocessing, amount of it in object colors.
- Stereo function is more accurate.
- New diffuse map options for object coloring.
- Saving also the internal image buffer along with M3I.
- Addition option for lighting like intensity for all lights and background
image, usage of downscaled background image for ambient color.
- Drag&drop Png files with internal parameters and textfiles with txt pars

What's new in the 188.8.131.52 test version:
A rather spiffy looking new interface and, in Jesse's own words:
"Some beta testing is needed because of compiler upgrading;
the changes belong to the internal light model, more options
for the diffuse map, panorama camera mode, stereo options.
Some issues should be solved, many new ones to find!
It is just the executable, you can take all directories with files
from the previous version - v184.108.40.206 - if you need them, or adjust
the ini-dirs to the existing ones.
Note: the new stereo options must be used from the same starting
parameters to work properly, I will change this for easier handling.
For now you have to undo the parameters or reload default ones".
Please bear in mind that this is just the executable, so if you are

A new hexa grid, more fast and predictable behavior. That formula is not mine, I copied it from K3DSurf forums (given credit)

Chaotica 0.48 for WindowsDownload for Windows 32/64bit: http://chaoticafractals.com/chaotica_0.48_win_noncommercial.zipChaotica 0.48 for Windows3 years ago in Personal More Like This
This release is mainly a bugfix release for the 0.47 beta, with many improvements to the user interface fixing issues such as the fractal not scaling when you changed resolution, imaging settings being spuriously reset and not saved properly etc. Hopefully it's a bit more friendly to use now It'll still crash if you try to restore state without having the original params loaded, that'll be fixed in the next release.
Another important change in this build is restored native support for bipolar, thanks to code Xyrus-02 provided from Apo7X15C beta 3. I'm hoping the small difference in handling the divide by zero and negative log etc will finally enable full compatibility - please test this and report if something looks wrong!
* Changed copyright to Glare Technologies Ltd.
* Added Glare Tech's Winter scripting language (not exposed yet)
* Added batch rendering
Apophysis 7X 15C - Installer available nowI have made an installer for Apophysis 7X 15C available at xyrus-worx.orgApophysis 7X 15C - Installer available now3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Please be aware that this installer is for Microsoft Windows only. It comes in two versions: for the 32 bit and the 64 bit version of Apophysis 7X 15C. The two versions can be installed side-by-side. Even in a single folder (but be careful - you might not want to uninstall the 32 bit version if you have the 64 bit version in the same folder so I recommend keeping the folders separate)
Unlike for the ZIP-package, 32- and 64 bit version do not come in a single file!
Currently, the german, italian and chinese language packs are shipped with the installer. The other language packs are outdated and for the vanilla version 7x15 only.
The 32 bit-installer offers you to install a collection of DC-plugins as well as two sample scripts. Please mind that upon uninstallation, these plugin .DLL-files will be removed even if they were there before. This also app

This is an encouragement to use POLYFOLD_SYM!
This transform adds a polygonal symmetry to a fractal, of specified order (order should be an integer number normally. Even orders are 100% continue while odd ones have a discontinuity plane... )
Normal PolyFolding did not allowed to choose a shift without breaking continuity instead this allows to do so! Try it.

A few common Apo7X15C problems and their fixesI get an error about Apophysis7X.rand and/or Apophysis.undo when I start ApophysisA few common Apo7X15C problems and their fixes3 years ago in Personal More Like This
It's a Vista/7-issue which spawned after using Delphi XE2 as the main compiler (since 15C) You have multiple possibilities:
1. Right click the Apophysis shortcut or EXE-file and select "Properties". Go to the "Compatibility" tab and check "Run as administrator". Try again.
2. Copy your Apophysis folder to the desktop (or "My Documents") and try running it from that location.
3. Go to the control panel and disable UAC ("User account control")
A permanent fix is on the way.
I get a crap ton of access violations when I open Apophysis and/or the Editor window
My assumption is that there is an incompatibility in your settings. Reset them the following way:
1. Exit Apo, hold the Windows-Key and hit "R" on your keyboard. Enter "regedit" and hit return.
2. On the left side, browse to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software" and find the folder "Apophysis 7X".
3. Right click that folder and click "Delete".

All of the numerous changes belong to the fractal flames generator T.I.N.A. , this release is some kind of "consolidation release". Complete list of changes:
- resolution and quality profiles for the main editor and the interactive renderer
- quality- and resolution-profile-editor
- quality- and resolution-related settings removed from the Preferences-window
- randomize color keyframe position in the random gradient generator to create more interesting gradients
- use gradients of random size in the random flame generators
- "From Editor"/"To Editor" buttons to quick exchanging from fractals between the editor and the interactive renderer
- rudimentary statistics display in the interactive renderer
- automatically clear the screen in the interactive renderer
- the interactive renderer also now respects the quality setting (from the render profile) and does not "overrender" as quickly as before
- take into account the real density while tonemapping an imag
