Platinus' Xaos Tutorial Transcript
Now, in order for you to begin to understand the idea behind Xaos, you need to learn a little bit about how Apophysis uses transforms to make fractals, so, I'm going to explain this really quickly
Also, it would behoove you to get the following plugins: bipolar, splits, and lazy susan. let me know if you have any trouble finding them, I'll be more than happy to put a link some where
http://n8iveattitude1.deviantart.com/art/stuffs-167945333 This is a great big collection of TONS of plugins, should have what you need
All you need to do to install plugins is to create a folder called Plugins in the same directory as your Apophysis executable
Apophysis uses a set of triangles, called Transforms, to create the pretty stuff we know as fractals. Each transform plots points on a grid based on the specific formula that we adhere to the triangle. These points are not only plotted through the specific triangle that the formula is on, but through the other
How to make a pure UF gradient from a chartHere is a very simple way to make a gradient that is pure from a chart or a picture that you particularly like the colours of.More Like This
The advantage of doing it this way is that you don't get loads and loads of nodes that aren't necessarily needed, and the colours you pick will be cleaner looking.
1. Download and save the image or chart into your Ultra Fractal Image folder; (you will find this inside your documents and ultra Fractal folder.);
2. then make a new fractal using Pixel formula and the Image.ucl on the outside tab (both in Standard);
3. Open the little folder icon in Image and choose the chart you have just saved into there. Centre it and make the image dimension 640x640px - or whatever dimensions are appropriate to accommodate the whole image;
4. Open the Gradient window and press F8. Here you have options to choose as many or as few nodes as you wish. Between 5 and 8 nodes are most workable.
5. click the box that says Space Evenly. (This can be
