How to find out what a transform doesNot really a tutorial this time, just some exploration ideas.How to find out what a transform does11 months ago in Art Features More Like This
There is no extensive guide to all transforms and plugins. So how do people figure what they do? The way is to experiment, and there are some techniques that work quite well for me.
As examples, i will use spherical and loonie.
A short note
For all the mathods below, make sure you try the following:
Change all the variables and try different combos of themMove the pre affine of the transform aroundScale and rotate the pre affine
Add it as post transform to squares or circles
Start (from blank) with square or sineblur, and add the variation you want to try out as post transform.
Lets start with square:
default square spherical post_transform loonie post_transform

It also features the Apophysis equivalents (when those exist). The left column corresponds to Chaotica, while the right column is Apo.
Iterator (Chaotica) Transform (Apo)
To add a new iterator, use the "New Iterator" button on top of the editor.
To remove an existing iterator, click on it and press Delete.

That variation is used to create the depth blur effects in 3d fractals.
Unlike Apo's native depth blur, with this plugin you can use any variation (I'd recommend sineblur) for blurring.
The drawback compared to native blur is that you need to place the blurred object "manually" (i.e. using ztranslate, rotate_x and rotate_y) so it might be a bit tricky to use. But I think that the result is 99.98% worth it.
