limiter1 works like in previous formulas, but you can control how fast x is varying inside the reciprocal changing mul1. When mul1 = 0, you are DISABLING the reciprocal, in this case only mul2, recip2 will act.
Mul2 and limiter2; to disable them set mul2 = 0; they act on x*x instead of normal x, causing nice interferences on the functions. try some values to see!
If muls are both 0, you are assigning 0 to the variable, it will not be nice by the way!

1) For anybody that downloaded TgladTetra. It is painfully slow?
NOW NO MORE - Redownload to get the fast version (3x faster to render. Now it should be as fast as the normal integer power). This was done using expansions of the trigonometric functions.
Read the tip:
"19 feb; huge optimization for Tglad's formulas, by the way the resulting julias will come out different.
To fix this issue SWAP X & Y in the SEED and you will get the same julias again. This won't be an issue I hope in front of a 3x speed gain? "
2) Please anyone who wants to enter in the contest; hurry up as the deadline I would like to have is 20 february, but I can wait more if anyone needs more time?
Also remember that normally I'll pick ONE fractal as winner for each category even if I am undecided on some. Probably will do a poll. Or a mix of entries

- Exchanging of formulas in the Formula-window now works in two directions
- Started to increase the number of formulas from 6 to 8. (!!!) Many changes are already done, but not all. Unfortunately most required changes are only detected by crashing the program.
It was necessary to create new revisions for all file-formats involved, currently only saving in the *m3p-format is supported.

This is just the executable and readme; get it at: http://www.fractalforums.com/index.php?action=downloads;sa=view;down=45
(You will need to have installed the full version 1.8.2 x1: http://www.fractalforums.com/index.php?action=downloads;sa=view;down=43 prior to adding this update)
As always, in Jesse's own words:
"Ok, this is for those who like testing, only the executable with readme included, save your current program first when replacing it with this version....
Because of the extended hybrid combination option in the 1.8.7 version, it can cause some color shifts and different results in certain combination modes, nevertheless please report any unusual issues, thx!
Included is a simple html readme.
What is new in version 1.8.7:
- Fixed issues in the navigator and lighting.
- 'Smooth' option when calculating only one hard shadow.

A new 'Toy' for M3D!!Hi guys!A new 'Toy' for M3D!! in Personal More Like This
First off; let me wish you all a - slightly belated! - Happy New Year!
Now, to the point; I recently discovered - via Kronpano's :iconkronpano: excellent piece 'Sierp Hilbert Construction Site': http://fav.me/d72bcaa that it's possible to create interactive 360 degree images of M3D - and doubtless also Mandelbulber and Frag - pieces.
The process uses a facility provided by 'fieldofview.com', which is accessible through a Flickr account. I personally have never been a great one for making vids of my M3D creations, so finding this feature was like manna from heaven for me!
Basically, you'll have to have, or open a Flickr account: http://www.flickr.com/ to upload your images to. As most of you will be aware, M3D has a 360 degree view option within the Navigator; use this to create your panoramic 'base' piece.
To work best, the 'horizon' should be positioned in the exact centre of your image. This will avoid any unwanted distortion. If you are using a background image

Jesse has just released a new Beta version of M3D; v188.8.131.52 test.
As ever, it's available for free download from FractalForums.com at:
What's new in the 184.108.40.206 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 - v220.127.116.11 - 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".

Mandelbulb 3D Tutorial 4: Basic TipsMandelbulb 3D Tutorial 4: Basic TipsMandelbulb 3D Tutorial 4: Basic Tips 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

About helping othersIt has recently come to my attention that some people just don't know how to respond to requests from others for help. I have always offered help to those I can when asked. I've never ignored a request for help. I do ask that a question is specific in nature. But overall, I answer every question I can to the best of my abilities.About helping others in Personal More Like This
So if you're going to act like you know something, and answer questions from people, you had better be prepared to answer a bunch of questions and have a bit of patience. Many times one question leads to another, and another after that. Or once you help with one question, that person may then turn to you and ask different questions. So be prepared for that. If someone is asking you for advice, they obviously think you have more knowledge that might help them. If you can't take the time for follow up questions, or just don't want to be bothered by questions that you 'think' are too obvious or simple for you to respond to, then you have no business helping someo

I received an interesting email this morning. Someone contacted me through my Fine Art America site requesting that I make a print available. I forgot to ask how she found the image, as I hadn't even posted it there yet. Anyway, it turns out this person is the daughter of Karl Menger, who's most famous popular contribution to mathematics (according to WikipediA), was the Menger sponge, a three-dimensional version of Sierpinski's carpet. The Menger3 formula (and other forms of it) certainly seem to be some of the most widely used and popular formulas for many that use Mandelbulb 3D.
The image she was interested in was one I recently posted here at DA, Wreck Of The Menger. Eve pointed me to a very interesting video that explains the Menger sponge quite well,

For those who don't know, Pure-O is nothing like regular OCD. It's a mental disorder that makes you obsess over something that frightens you, and you just can't stop thinking about it. It sometimes causes hallucinations involved with the obsession or conditional thoughts (If I do x, then Y will happen to me), even if the action has absolutely nothing to do with the obsession itself. It causes all sorts of neurotic behavior. It sometimes comes in the form of an unwanted thought that just won't go away.
One of the strangest parts of the disorder is that the person seems completely normal on the outside, usually.

First of all, if you were really "emo" you wouldn't go straight out to say it. So called "emos" are most likely introverted people and wouldn't openly say things like that, and they definitely wouldn't consider themselves emo at all. Usernames like "immacutter","ihatemyself", "broken_and_alone", "cutting_for_a_reason" have been surfacing through the internet (Those aren't real usernames, but that's basically what people would write). Again, if you really are going through depression or have lots of stress and anxiety on you, you wouldn't have such usernames. You'd probably have more biased ones or Mature, you might say, usernames. I think that people claiming themselves emo and being open about it are just ignorant 13 year olds who know nothing of the real world.

As I recall, I was linked to it from a Wheel of Time fansite a very long time ago.
What is your earliest Artistic memory ?
Oh, this is a hard one. I've probably been drawing since I had the motor skill to hold a marker. When I wa

How did you discover deviantART ?

And fractals, what about fractals ? How did you discover them and start to create them ?
I had 3 fractal periods in my life.

A fractal artist meeting is being planned for 25-27th June, 2014 to be held in San Sebastian (Spain) and you are all invited!
The venues for this 3 day event have already been booked and invitations are going out to the fractal artist worldwide. This is a chance to meet and vacation with other fractal artists while also sharing in a day of lectures to learn more about fractal artistry, the history of fractal art and the tools we use.
A few US artists got together informally a few years ago and had a terrific time meeting each other and sharing ideas. We decided that the next one needed to be in Europe so that more people could attend.
For more information, please visit Math Artistry and don't miss your chance to register.

Hey piethein21! how are you today ? Not too stressed about this interview ?
Hey I'm fine today. I'm not stressed at all. It takes a lot to stress me out. Sometimes it would be helpfull to be stressed out. Sometimes on exams I worry not enough and don't pay attention to the test enough. I'm jabbering already I hope it would not be too much for you to read all my nonsense.
First of all, please introduce yourself to the community.
Ok. I'm piethein21 I study in Delft and I'm living in Delft too (only 2 weeks now). I study applied mathematics and hoping to finish my master in 2,5 years from now. As a hobby I cycle (but only in the summer when its not too cold outsid
It hurts me.I mean, you can X this out if you want but you see the title and if you even care about me or anyone you call yourselfs "watching" your gonna read at least half of this.It hurts me. in Personal More Like This
I really hate it here sometimes. I mean, all of you have amazing talents. And half the time you feel like there just wasted. I can't stand to see my friends sad or mad when their "watchers" don't comment on things, it honestly hurts me. In the past it used to get to me then I told myself, I know my art is good, I hvae a nice style and I don't need anyone to prraise me on it. Would I like you guys to, would anyone? YES.
Why am I writing this journal entry? Because I have a friend, and I hate when she writes things like this. It shows me that she feels...like no one cares. And I hate it. I hate seeing her mad I hate seeing anyone unhappy...But there's nothing really I can do, I can't go to all her watchers and force them to atleast take a damn glances at her stuff. That's something they would have to do on their only and

I've been honestly drawing my ass off and working harder in school so posting things has been VERY slow.
I have almost all my request done, just ONE MORE T_T

skinny does not = beautiful
big thing right there. read it at least 12 times so it gets into your head
anyone can be skinny if they really try but losing weight wont always make you feel better about yourself. people who lose weight usually dont see how much they have changed because all they see is their old self that they didnt like.
IF YOU DONT LIKE YOURSELF THEN YOU WILL NEVER BELIEVE THAT YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL.
how you looked in that bikini doesnt make you beautiful
what those people say about you doesnt mean you are trash
if you look in the mirror and see someone who doesnt want to make you smile then there is something wrong.
you have to know that you are beautiful. look at yourself and dont focus on everything you want to hide or anything that makes you feel inferior. look at what makes you beautiful. see how your eyes sparkle, or how your hair shines in the sun. look at everything that you have accomplished in your life. how you tre
PAINTINGok idk if you have ever painted. but if u haven't then u definitely need to. and if your going to paint, don't paint on boring old paper. PAINT ON FURNITURE!! it is way more fun and you can see it all the time. (plus you wont lose it because lets face it, how are you going to lose a whole table?!) i have a desk and its going to be painted very beautifully by myself over the summer. i hope it turns out goodPAINTING in Personal More Like This

I am also happy because I just thought of a really great idea for a drawing that I hope to do some time this week. It involves many layers which I hope will turn out the way I am currently imagining it.
My other reason for being excited is because valentine's day is on friday and even though I don't have a boyfriend I still enjoy the holiday. I like seeing everyone else being nice to each other and giving hugs. I also found a bunch of really cheesy valentines day cards for my friends. I love them and they make me laugh when I think about them. It is going to be awesome. I wish for everyone else to have a happy valentines day and that they will also get some corny valentines day cards from people they know.

journals.... :/i dont really understand why people want me to write a journal. what's the use in them? so i can tell everyone that i had grilled cheese for lunch? ( actually that's a lie. i had fruit.) see? i mean who cares about that? i don't. i am not going to say how i feel or who i have a crush on. i probably won't even say how my day was unless it was super freakin amazing!! but probably not. So you really won't be hearing much of me or who i am. but if you read this whole thing then why not check out my pictures?journals.... :/ in Personal More Like This

You guys never stop to amaze me, I get new and fresh works, journals and tutorials in my inbox every day, and now I thought I should share it with you.

Light has challenged Chiara with this one: and I think it's a great idea! It's not like the usual parameter pongs, but a co-operation between two artists with different styles, where the result shows off each artist's style. Just imagine Leichenengel's colourful psychedelic style with :devjimpan73: metallic spirals and shiny gems. Or LeonieZurakowsky's colourful plastic mandelbulb shapes with kr0mat1k's quirky metallic bul
