Fractal Software to Create Beautiful Fractals.Fractal Software To Create These Beautiful FractalsMore Like This
There are many different kinds of fractal generating software out there, just waiting for an artist to create beautiful fractal images.
Many of them are free and some of them even have creators who are members here at Deviant Art!.
There are groups available that are devoted to specific programs....and there are groups that solicit your art no matter which
software you choose to use.
This journal will by no means be exhaustive, or complete....
.....but will give you some idea as to where YOU might like to start on your fractal-creating journey.
Apophysis F.A.Q.We noticed there was a constant income of recurring questions about Apophysis on the group's homepage, so I collected the most common ones and Xyrus-02 kindly answered them for us .More Like This
Where do I get Apophysis? Is it expensive?
Apophysis is free, open-source software. That means, it does not cost you a cent. In addition, everyone is able to change the software using
the available source code. This is also why there are different
versions of Apophysis:
The "official" or "main" version of Apophysis. You can download it from Apophysis.org
Apophysis 2.08 3D
The original Apophysis 3D hack. You can download it from Sourceforge.net (where you can also get newer beta versions of Apophysis 2.x)
A popular version of Apophysis including all 3D features, better support for Windows Vista and Windows 7 and a

Due to a few concerns that I'm overgeneralizing through my use of the word ignorant, I wanted to amend some things:
1. This journal was not written out of a pretentious attitude, in fact it's quite the opposite. I feel the need to share knowledge, and I do whenever I can. I could never be upset with those who truly do not know where to start when it comes to enriching their minds.
2. This journal is not about lording knowledge above those who do not yet possess it.
3. This journal is not about bashing someone for the barriers that can impede or prevent their desire or ability to absorb new information.
4. I do not encourage people to "just Google it," that is why resources are listed at the bottom.
5. If you would like to contribute a resource, please link it in your comments.
I’ve been hearing the phrase “I don’t know what ____ is” a lot as of late and it’s been a little irksome, and here’s why: we are currently living in
A new kind of art: JWildfire V1.20 releaseJust released JWildfire V1.20.More Like This
Again, this is a striking new version with some major new features, so I skipped some version numbers.
First, there are some really cool (and some of them long-awaited) variations
Second, I introduce a new concept of fractal art: generating random fractals by mixing conventional random flames with randomly selected images from the internet, specifically from Wikipedia Commons.
Fractals created this way can look truly amazing, and it can be fun to guess which kind of image may be hidden in a certain fractal
There is a special dialog inside the program which explains all you must know about this feature. This dialog just pops up when you try to create random flames by using the new ”Wikimedia Commons”-random-flame-generator, so you cant miss it
Finally, I simplified anti-aliasing. It is now on a per-flame-basis (not on transform-basis). Makes it more simp
Plugins and stuffHey guys,More Like This
there is no way I can express the amount of requests in numbers - so I make something easier for you I've put my plugins up on deviantART so you can find them in my gallery again. Also, the groups which have added them to their galleries will have them once again - given that they didn't remove the "deviation in storage"-items yet.
Let me explain you why I moved them in the storage: I've been noticing that many of you guys are having them day-to-day in your fractals which, simply said, is really amazing! But the problem with the deviantART gallery is that it's very...weird hosting resources here. It's made for artwork and managing resources on this website is very stressful and more work than it should be. This is why I moved them over to my website which also hosts Apophysis 7x: apophysis.xyrus-worx.org. If you click "extensions", you get exactly what you're looking for - with source code and always the latest version in a nice and easy list. I even linked (not hosted) ot
Ultra Fractal Tutorial: Create a New Gradient FileMore Like This
This is quickie tutorial for beginners (and maybe for those old timers who've been using Ultra Fractal so long they've forgotten how!) on How to Create a New Gradient File in Ultra Fractal.
At the end of the tutorial you will have a nice set of colourful gradients to choose from for when you're stuck for ideas, and be able to apply them to the Fractal files you are working on.
As your experience with using Ultra Fractal grows you will find that more and more you will create and edit the gradients you are working with "on the hoof", but to start with it's a good idea to have a range of gradients to choose from as you're learning.
It's also useful to know how to save Gradients you've made while working on an image for repeat use at a later time.
Remember the Help file in UF is also very extensive, and will assist you further in creating and editing your Gradients manually.
Mandelbulber 2.04Mandelbulber v2 2.04More Like This
Free download (executables for win32 and win64 and multiplatform source): http://sourceforge.net/projects/mandelbulber/
With big help from Sebastian Jennen I have finished new release of Mandelbulber.
This time there was focus on implementation of NetRender engine. This allows to render the same image or animation on several computers connected with Ethernet network. The program shares and schedule work for all connected workstations and uses all available CPUs.
Other significant change is implementation of ray-traced transparency. There are used Fresnel's equations for refraction to improve realism of image.
Examples are here:

Motion Blur Stills with ChaoticaA quick and very underused technique to create blur effects.More Like This
The principle is simple: you create a short animation and, instead of rendering it entirely, just render one frame, which will be your final artwork.
Step 1: you need some parameters to animate. I used a simple plastic with only 2 transforms.
Step 2: Open the animation editor (Ctrl+T or Window > Animation Editor). Set total length to some reasonably amount of time. I use 30-60sec currently, since its short enough to not get lost and long enough to have some room to tweak to control the blurring.
Exposure time controls the amount of motion blur. No worry much about getting the "right" value right now, since you can change it at any point.
Since we are only looking for one frame and not a full animation, there is no need to create many keyframes: 2 usually do the job. If, after making the animation, there are no frames that you like, you can just change one of th

- 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.
