- Number-Fields in the Formula-Window have now buttons to decrease/increase the value (!!!). The Increment can be specified at the bottom of the window
- Option to perform automatic refresh of the Navigator-window when changing formulas-parameters in the Formula-window
- The Formula-Window is resizable now
- 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.
Quick'n'Dirty: Reflections and TransparencyFractal Art WeekMore Like This
Note: these are not the holy grail settings for reflections and transparency. They are what this is called: a quick and dirty approach for those who (like me for a long long time) need a place to start and experiment from. All in here is based on what I found out myself or what I was pointed to by kind fellow DA-members. If you find fault with it, have additional tips or whatever, please drop me a note Also, please remember, I am not a native speaker. Either ignore spelling- and/or grammar-mistakes or (even better!) point me to them if you like!
Errmm... Maybe it's not such a Quick tutorial after all... :}

Mandelbulb 3D Tutorial 5: Tips and TricksFrom time to time, I still manage to stumble across new 'tricks' in MB3D. I'm sure some of the following tips are known to others, but for those that haven't discovered them, I hope they will help in the future. Some of these were discovered accidentally, others were found through desperation while trying to solve problems.More Like This
The first one is very simple and just a little bit of a time saver.
Loading Diff maps ~
This was discovered by accident. It may be well know for all I know, but I just recently discovered it. In the light panel under the Global light tab, there is a box you select to load a diffuse map (Diff map). This is used to color your image in different ways, such as making it look like the structures surface is textured. Normally you simply select the box (Use a map for the diffuse color) and the number one map in your folder loads. If you want to change a map, you just scroll with the up\down arrows to a different image number or input a number if you know which map n

Be patient and read everything. Tell me if sthg remains unclear as soon as you can.
I am looking for a set of new sample params that will be included with the next Mb3d x2, that will be a formula update + a param update.
You CAN CONTRIBUTE AND YOUR NICK will be in the param name.
Resulting images must be elegant, incisive and clean, with a stepwidth of 0.5 to min 0.3! I will be very exigent with those requirements! Sample images are examples of elegance in my eyes.
no decombines. (ALTERNATE MODE each formula can have any number of iterations 1 to 20, leave maxiter to 60 as it's fast to render). And no weird looking images. Remember the elegance rule, fractals are not random
Use neutral colors. That means; not full hue ones, prefer those more grey-ish, in general. You always can use coloured lights (just not use all the colors in the spectrum at once if possible) - and you can use dynamic fog also AND any other option in postpr
To Create A Simple JournalI've had a few friends over my time here ask for advice on a few dA topics so I thought I'd make a post about each one as it happens again, in the hope that it may help someone. I don't claim that this is the only way to do things - probably far from it! Nor do I claim that there may not be errors here. Please tell me - nicely! - if you find any and I will correct it! I can no longer access the 'old way' of creating a journal, more's the pity, so I can only advise on how to do it through Sta.sh. So, to the best of my knowledge, here is some helpful guidance for those who need it.More Like This

How to get used to your new tablet!This tutorial is by no means a definitive guide, but it should help you with your tablet usage!More Like This
1 - First and foremost, don't be afraid of it. You need to use it. Every. Single. Day. Use it to browse the web for example. It'll help you get used to the sensitivity (practice highlighting sections of text), and all of the features of the pen. Some suggest that you should hide your mouse, so you're forced to only use your tablet! Through daily use, it should become an extension of your arm, and begin to move naturally.
2 - Play with it. Mess around with all of the settings your tablet has to offer. Not only will it help you find the settings you're most comfortable with, but it'll teach you what each individual part does. Also play around with it in your chosen drawing program (Photoshop / SAI / etc.), you'll learn more about your tablet and how it reacts to the program's settings (which may be different than what you're used to) - you're undoubte
