Now you can do transparent thingsMandelbulb 1.7.99 is out!!!Now you can do transparent things2 years ago in Personal More Like This
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!

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.

In seeking to improve my images, I thought to remind myself of resources I've used in the past as well as ones I scoped out more recently via google. I also wanted to give back and to pass on this information to other artists.
Check out some of these resources. Some of them are for 'painters' and some for digital artists and designers. All of them will provide you some useful ideas - things you may have even studied before and forgotten!
Please add your own resources, thoughts and ideas and pass it on! Feel free to copy and paste or share - though with my name would be nice! hehe

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
Download it from FractalForums at: http://www.fractalforums.com/index.php?action=downloads;sa=view;down=43
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.

Plugin pack for Apophysis 7x64 + a little reminderHi guysPlugin pack for Apophysis 7x64 + a little reminder1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Since I obviously don't have anything better to do this fine day, I sat down and made 94 (!) existing plugins for Apophysis readable for the 64-bit-version of Apophysis 7X (commonly known as 7x64) - I'm talking about almost all of the plugins available as source code on SourceForge.net including my own. I just skipped some odd non-standard ones, those which are built-into Apo7x15 and dc_image. I don't know what else is floating around in outer space so if you note me the source code (*.c), I'd convert some more too.
It cost me an imaginary pack of cigarettes and 90% of my remaining sanity. So here is the download link:
Please make sure you read the file README.TXT before you send me messages and comments whining about that it doesn't work for you

Final-Transform fix for 15DHey guysFinal-Transform fix for 15D2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I know it's been some time but I'm having hell of a release going on here. So I just didn't came to check on what's wrong with the saving of final transforms. I finally made it so that I'm not there 7am to 10pm every day. This means: it's fixing time.
To provide you with an acceptable solution, I just reverted the behavior of FXes to the one of 15C. So that you at least get to use 64 bit plugins / scripts AND final xforms
Here it is: http://download.xyrus-worx.org/apophysis/apo7x-15d_hf1.zip
It's a patch so just replace the EXE files in your installation. If you didn't update yet, you can with this. In this case, you also just replace the EXE files. Remember the release notes from the original 15D package, though. It contains valuable information on how to use 64 bit plugins and compile multi-architecture plugins (32/64) from existing and new plugin code.
See you soon

As ever, it's available for free download from FractalForums.com at:
What's new in the 126.96.36.199 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 - v188.8.131.52 - 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

Tip of the Day: Mental BlindersSometimes you really have to just shut your brain off after making a good decision and just do it. Too many times we find that we know what to do but just don't do it. Today, come to a decision that is something you KNOW is a good one, then put on the mental blinders and just FOCUS on that task.Tip of the Day: Mental Blinders2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I think part of what success I've achieved so far has come from being able to focus on one thing for long periods of time like Forrest Gump.

Malware Report #5There's a slew of new malware skins uploaded to the main Rainmeter Gallery in the last couple of days. All downloads in the list at the end of this post are infected.Malware Report #53 years ago in Personal More Like This
We try and check all the skins uploaded to our gallery for malware before accepting them and we try to keep this list up-to-date, but real-time interferes, so please practice safe downloading!
Some things to watch for:
- comments are usually disabled or hidden
- they are fairly new to dA, just a couple of new skins
- their profile page only has a few items on it
- they rip a skin/preview/description then upload it with malware or keyloggers
- downloads are zipped and have an .exe file which is the virus
- don't download files like Build.exe, Run.exe, FullInstall.exe, *.rmskin.exe, Full_Set_Up.pif - basically anything that ends in .exe or .pif.
How to test each download for a virus:
- Right-click 'Download File' link, choose 'Copy Link Location'
- Go to VirusTotal at http://www.virustotal.com/index

Why I disagree with Kony 2012Many on here and on Facebook have messaged me about the Kony 2012 movie. It's very well-made and definitely worth a watch if you haven't seen it yet.Why I disagree with Kony 20122 years ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Kony is a terrible criminal, and I am very much for bringing him to justice. However, I do not share the enthusiasm of the overwhelming majority about the movie and the proposals put forward by the makers. Here are ten criticisms I came up with, in no particular order.
1) If something is being hyped up all around you, this is a strong signal to think for yourself. Be especially suspicious when someone wants to use FORCE to do GOOD. Paradoxically, if you REALLY care - don't fall for appeal to emotion, as is being done here. Consider the implications and outcomes, rather than the motives. Don't let the public opinion shape yours, let the facts do so. Don't let one issue overshadow other issues which could be more important. Don't be afraid to disagree with the majority. Truth i
