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
Mandelbulb3D Apollo dIFS TutorialWell, I've seen you really enjoyed mine and most of you asked me for tutorial! Alright, here it comes. Be sure you do only amazing pieces with this!! ..More Like This
I hope you opened Mandelbulb3D... Now Let's start.. But it's not easy as it seems to be!
1. Click Fo.2 (2nd Slot) in Formulas window, and insert here Apollo2DIFS - It's located in last (3rd) dIFS collumn! (Under amazingIFS) And now input these values (These are just optional. Different formula can get affected by different rotation, PolyFold, etc.) and change Max. iterations from 60 to 10
Add X1: 0 (keep unchanged)
Add X2: 0 (keep unchanged)
Mul Z: 0.65 - 0.85
RotationX: -1.5 -1.9
RotationY: 5.9 6.4
RotationZ: 0 (keep unchanged)
Polyfold Order: 12-44 (determines number of petals of your future flower, this value range is recommended)
Global XY-Scale: 0,05 - 0.1
Final add X: 15 - 20
Now It's not easy to choose from formulas which decorates flower, or which makes these wonderful petals...
An Amazing Surf 2 GuidelineMany people went a bit frustrated on not getting anything “cool” from the new Amazing Surf 2 formula recently made by Luca, aka dark-beam :icondark-beam: for Mandelbulb 3D.More Like This
If you haven't it in hand you can get it here: http://www.fractalforums.com/mandelbulb-3d/custom-formulas-and-transforms-release-t17106/
Here's a brief indication on how you can get nice patterns out of it without hair pulling
I've assumed that you already put on the first slot the Asurf2 formula.
So, let's change some values:
Min R= 0.1
Rotate1 Z= 8
It would look something like this:
Now go on the Julia tab in the main window or in the 3D navi, as you most prefer, and input the following values:
Now that's it, you're done basicall
An Amazing Surf 'Roots' How-ToHello! I'm here to give you some tips while working with Amazing Surf formula! Before start to look, checkout Jorge's wonderful AMAZING SURF 2 tutorial over there ->More Like This
Okay. Let's Begin. Open Mandelbulb3D, and replace Integer by Amazing Surf. Zoom little bit out, and it should look like this:
Now change some values of formula:
Min R: 0.1
Rotation1 X: 13
Rotation1 Y: 9
Rotation1 Z: -20
Scale Vary: 0
Sphere or Cylinder: 0
When you zoom into center little bit, you may already see forming some little curls like this:
Now turn on Julia on and put these values:
And we're done! For experimenting, higher or lower surf/julia values and get more mystery shapes! (Tip: Put Asurf to 3-4-5th slot, to put before it different formula. It can enhance your Asurf fractal) Examples:

Actually, I really think this should expand further. I'm having great ambitions, so I feel it's going to up grade! But now to our project!
Let me introduce you sleeplessmonk between us!
He has been deviant for 4 years and already make wonderful MB3D and JWildfire fractals! Such a talent! Pity he's hidden down there! Let show you example of his beautiful pieces:
Come on! visit his oustanding gallery! You'll truly not regret it!
Note: If you find any new, unseen and hidden fractalist there, let me know! I'll think about it's feature! Every suggestion is appreciated very much!
Thank you all very much for looking! Hope you enjoyed this little feature and see you in next series of Hidden Fractalist!
