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
Do it your self guide for ApophysisLately I have been getting a lot of questions on how I make my images. So I have decided to put together a little article to help people get started with apophysis. I am linking tutorials that I know can help produce quality results I am not intending to take credit for any of these tutorials I am just sharing the resources.Do it your self guide for Apophysis5 years ago in Art Features More Like This
1.What is apophysis? Its a free program used to create digital images based on mathematical equations. Don't worry the program does most of the work. A more basic way of looking at it would be you start with a single point and then add to it in different directions until you have an image.
Here Are a couple examples of what you could create using this program as you can see you add a lot of points to come up with a finished product. You can also see that the possibilities are virtually endless.
2.Where do I get Apophysis? The final version of Apophysis can be found here.

+ Fixed two strings regarding the Chaotica integration. They were always english. The language files have been adjusted accordingly.
+ Fixed the "dot"-bug with the waves2-, noise- and crop-variations (and possibly more) occuring when you use multithreaded rendering. The origin was a structural misconception with the opacity handling. It now works smooth & fine! No corrupted renders in my own tests. If you have some after this release, please report!
+ Added file type registration scripts in the portable (ZIP)-package

Mandelbulb 3D, my process. Over the last few months I have gotten a lot of questions on the process I use to create my images. It has only been about the last year that I feel I am really understanding Mandelbulb and creating more with purpose and not chance. However chance and luck does still come into the creation process. I view what we do as Mandelbulb artists a bit like exploring. I am an artist who has been making art for well over 40 years. All my years of painting and photography does play a roll in how I use Mandelbulb. This is not a tutorial but a look at how I create an image for those that are new to Mandelbulb 3D.Mandelbulb 3D, my process.1 year ago in Personal More Like This

Confused? Here’s a quick FAQ:
What is Stereoscopy?
Stereoscopy, commonly known as '3-D' is a method of creating an image which creates an illusion of depth. This works by showing a slightly offset picture to your left eye than your right eye, making things appear further forward or back into the picture!

FormulasA number of you have asked for my parameters.Formulas2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I have copied three below, they are (Asurf Curls) (Asurf Roots) (Asurf Shrooms).
They are what I call 'Raw Parameters'
All formulas and variables are unchanged but I have reset the camera position to default and removed all gradient and lighting effects so don't expect a 'finished image' if you load them up.
Just rotating the camera angle and running the image through C5 is not in my opinion a genuine Tweak, go explore, go look for your own 'Sweet Spot'
If you use any of them then a link back here would be nice.
Drop me a note if you have problems or suggestions for improvement.

In this tutorial, I will always use FPS 10. To get the frame numbers for FPS 30, just multiply the given values by 3.
For this tutorial, you will need Chaotica 1.5.2 or above (check website).
Adding the Stars
First, lets add the stars. In the World Editor, add a new iterator. Then, add a new transform to it and replace linear with a small amount of noise:
The amount of noise will change the size of the stars:
1 - Blink by changing the noise amount
Lets say we want our stars blink once a second. This means we will need 2 keyframes a second: the star will need to get big and then back to small in one second.
So, at time 0:
