Isometric Fractal Art Tutorial - Part 1In this tutorial, i will explain how i created some of my recent "isometric" works. For example:More Like This
Softwares needed: Apophysis and Chaotica.
Prerequisites: you will need some previous knowledge on how to use Apo and Chaotica. If you have any doubts, please check those out:

Plugins used: square.
Start from blank, and add 1 transform with square = 1. You should have something like:

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.

[17:48:49] Alright, now that we have our blank flame, move this red triangle up 1 and to the right 1 using the move buttons in the triangle tab
[17:49:40] (Not .1 or .01, but 1)
[17:50:12] next, add another triangle
[17:50:38] And move this triangle DOWN 1 and to the RIGHT 1
[17:51:18] next, create a third triangle and move it DOWN 1 and to the LEFT 1
[17:52:46] And by process of elimination, you can tell where the fourth transform is gunna go,right?
[17:53:02] *Annushkka has her four triangles ready
[17:53:03] create a fourth transform and move it UP 1 and to the LEFT 1
[17:53:35] Now, this part is where we start adding the details to the tiles
[17:54:03] these four linear triangles that you just created are what's gunna REPEAT your details and what makes the pattern tile
[17:54:21] DO NOT TOUCH THESE LINEAR TRIANGLES
[17:55:09] now, add a fifth transform and TAKE LINEAR OFF
[17:55:22] you will now notice a bun
Motion Blur Stills with ChaoticaA quick and very underused technique to create blur effects.More Like This
The principle is simple: you create a short animation and, instead of rendering it entirely, just render one frame, which will be your final artwork.
Step 1: you need some parameters to animate. I used a simple plastic with only 2 transforms.
Step 2: Open the animation editor (Ctrl+T or Window > Animation Editor). Set total length to some reasonably amount of time. I use 30-60sec currently, since its short enough to not get lost and long enough to have some room to tweak to control the blurring.
Exposure time controls the amount of motion blur. No worry much about getting the "right" value right now, since you can change it at any point.
Since we are only looking for one frame and not a full animation, there is no need to create many keyframes: 2 usually do the job. If, after making the animation, there are no frames that you like, you can just change one of th
Prettify Your Bloom: Tips and TricksFractal Art WeekMore Like This
Hello! It's C-91 here and, after people asking me tips on how to make flowers with Apophysis, I decided to write this introduction guide for the Fractal Week. There might be more in future.
Live with it: crafting flowers with Apophysis isn't the most original thing ever, but at least we can try to approach to the technique in another way and try to make them different from the multitude of results that can be found here on DeviantArt.
First of all, check the two blooms tutorials by lindelokse, which are the starting point for this technique:
Before we start...
Just so you know, 2D flowers are generally more versatile and suitable for crazy experiments than 3D ones. You can use more variations and plugins on 2D flowers without messing the shape up (and they will still be as spectacular as 3D flowers).
