Isolating Structures In MB3DHow to clean up your image background ~Isolating Structures In MB3D1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Wow. I haven't done a journal in ages. I thought I would share a little trick for getting a nice clean background when you want to isolate a structure in Mandelbulb 3D. Why? Because sometimes the structures behind the main focus of your image or the main structure are either just small repeats of the main structure, or they are fragmented and in one way or another just not as interesting. Or the background might bury the foreground object in detail or draw attention away from what you really want the viewer to focus on. People strive for a lot of detail, and that's fine, and sometimes it works. But often I find that there's no main focus to frame your point of view. (Edit: I forgot to mention this is made using Mandelbulb 3D version 1.8.2 and I fixed a few typo's!)
Sometimes you're able to focus on the foreground structure through clever use of fog, lights and depth of field settings. Nothing wrong with that either, so this is just another

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.

Plugin pack for Apophysis 7x64 + a little reminderHi guysPlugin pack for Apophysis 7x64 + a little reminder11 months 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:

Mandelbulb 3D Tutorial 4: Basic TipsMandelbulb 3D Tutorial 4: Basic TipsMandelbulb 3D Tutorial 4: Basic Tips1 month ago in Personal More Like This
First thing we'll cover are some tweaking tips. Tweaking, not to be confused with Twerking. Almost everyone does it. It's one of the best ways to learn. This section of the tutorial will cover some of the basics that will hopefully help new MB3D users with tweaking. Just don't let words like iterations, raystep multiplier and stepthwidth limiter scare you off. You don't need to know the math behind these things. Just consider those words as lables to show you where a setting is and you'll do fine. That's what the GUI is for, to make using the program fairly simple. I'm going to use a sample parameter of mine from about 2 1\2 years ago which is a tweak in a long line of tweaks. You will find that I am guilty of a few things that I'm going to cover, so it's a good example.
As always, I like to mention that I am not a tech giant. I really don't know a lot of the technical aspects of Mandelbulb 3D. If you are interested in the technical

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

Jesse has just released a new Beta version of M3D; v126.96.36.199 test.
As ever, it's available for free download from FractalForums.com at:
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

This journal entry is about spam. Or rather, it's about what spam isn't.
According to the help section spam is this:
"What is "spamming"?
Spamming is the act of using deviantART as a means to commercially advertise using journals, deviations comments, forums or notes and is considered an abuse regardless of how or where the advertisements are presented.
Commercial business operations are welcome to advertise on deviantART but only through proper advertising channels as outlined through our advertising contact page located at [link] . Commercial entities creating accounts to advertise for free, will find their accounts closed and their websites potentially blacklisted."
So here is what is not spam:

Interview by Naviretlav fractal artist with Xyrus-02 Apophysis 7x software developer from #Aposhack dA chat.
Naviretlav: Will the Apophysis Parameter Locator and the Preview Utility be integrated into the new Version of Apophysis 7X?
Xyrus-02: Apophysis 7X.16 will use the render engine of the Preview Utility. The Apophysis Parameter Locator will remain independent.
Naviretlav: For the Preview Utility, I think more about integration with the clipboard and the ability to show a popup window when there is a new flame in the clipboard while Apophysis is closed.
And what about file previews in Windows Explorer?
Xyrus-02: I don't think so for the first point. The second one seems realistic.
