Evolution of a fractal ~ a ~ to ~ zI was just looking for something to do, and though it might be interesting for some of you see the work flow process I went through for a fractal yesterday. This is not a tutorial. It's just a visual representation of my searching for something that I hoped would be interesting, and if I got lucky, something unique as well. I'm not saying I accomplished either of those goals, but I like where I ended up, and in the process saved many parameters that could be further developed and possibly become worth posting at some point in time.More Like This
I decided to start with the formula ABoxModKali, as I have seen Tim, (aka timemit) using it a lot lately. I've used it before, but rarely started out with it as the anchor formula. (Fo.1) Played with it alone for a few minutes, with and without Julia, and then added _addC in Fo.2. I thought the first image below would be a good staring point and it was my first saved parameter. A lot of the time, I work with no color because it can be distracting.
Isolating Structures In MB3DHow to clean up your image background ~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
Xaos-Mandelbulb - Understanding 2D and 4D formulasOkayMore Like This
Just sick and bored in my room, playing with Xaos and Mandelbulb3D settings I discovered the thing that can make work with 3D and 4D MB formula easier.... And all you need is Xaos fractal program...
First of all, I just open Mandelbulb3D and as first slot I put Makin4D p2a, looking like this:
It's nothing special, Only 3D version on Mandelbrot formula. but now, I run Xaos and starting with basic Mandelbrot 2D:
Now I activate quick regime Julia and I move my mouse pointer there:
And the follow result of julia is this:
And here we come to the next leve of managing 3D shape. When you wish to activate julia this window appears:
The first number indicates X coordinations and the second Y coordinates. so put these into Julia of MB3D like that:
Formula MandalayKIFS - TipsHello I decided to share with others, If I make amazing find, or discover something new Thanks for looking at my asurf tutorial aswell! Here I go today with Mandalay KIFS and some usefull tips, settings etc.More Like This
1. How to get something interesting just with single MandalayKIFS?
Let's get something cool! Open MB3D and put here Mandalay formula. After little zoom-out it should look as this:
Now change values!
Min R: 0.3
Rotation1 X: 9
Rotation1 Y: 6
Rotation1 Z: -11
XY Tower: 1.975
It probably look like this: But no worry! Julia can fix that! Turn Julia ON and put these values:
Now it should looks more appropiate As I said in my last tutorial for Asurf, Put it at 3-4-5-6th slot to put some formulas before to make it more complex and b
