Khan71: Okay. so, basically, not everything will 3D out.
bubble, cylindar, and a few others work the best.
if you have a final transform, it will squash the whole thing flat unless you up the zscale.
are we wanting to know what each thing does? Or what?
Khan71: Okay. So. From what I've experienced and what Lu-Kout has shown me, the different things go like this (this will be in bald laymans terms, hope that's okay. Bear with a lady here.)
zscale: this is the thingy that makes it go into the 3rd dimension, or the z plane. you have x and y, which are left and right and up and down. z scale intersects that to pop it out. okay?
ztranslate makes it go up and down from the zscale angle
if the item has a pre in front of it, it calculates that part before it 3D's
if the item says post in front, it calculates the formula after it 3Difies.
rotate does just that, rotates around left to right, or up and down, depending on whether it's x or y . I'm not smart enough to have fi

Now, in order for you to begin to understand the idea behind Xaos, you need to learn a little bit about how Apophysis uses transforms to make fractals, so, I'm going to explain this really quickly
Also, it would behoove you to get the following plugins: bipolar, splits, and lazy susan. let me know if you have any trouble finding them, I'll be more than happy to put a link some where
http://n8iveattitude1.deviantart.com/art/stuffs-167945333 This is a great big collection of TONS of plugins, should have what you need
All you need to do to install plugins is to create a folder called Plugins in the same directory as your Apophysis executable
Apophysis uses a set of triangles, called Transforms, to create the pretty stuff we know as fractals. Each transform plots points on a grid based on the specific formula that we adhere to the triangle. These points are not only plotted through the specific triangle that the formula is on, but through the other
