Blatant Fractal Art Theft!Hi there folks,More Like This
Thanks to a recent post on facebook by one of our members, I thought I'd make you aware of someone called Zelda Kurowski, who is currently showing many fractal images on her page at 'ipernity.com'.
These include pieces by some very well-known fractal artists; many of whom are respected Mandelbulb3D group members of long standing.

I'd suggest signing up to the site, and making her aware of your feelings in no uncertain terms!

Don't forget to add the map to the working folder you have for Mandelbulb 3D!
I've lowered the max. Iterations to 25 in the formula window to speed things a bit up but you can change it later if you prefer to do so.
Put in the first slot HeightMapIFS and type 199 in the nr field:
Add amazingIFS to the second slot.Just set all rotation X, Y and Z from default 5 to 0, and change Fold X, Y and Z values to 1.
