An Interview with the creator of the JWildfire Fractal Program
Andreas Maschke, Conducted by Tate27kh:
D.F.F: First could you tell us a bit about yourself and when you first became interested in Fractal art?
Andreas: I'm a 41 years old, married, and we have a son which is 11 years old. We live in Northern Germany. I have a degree in physics and work as senior software developer for a company creating software for our government.
I had always an interest in (computer) graphics, not only fractals. My first "real" computer was an Amiga which had powerful graphics-capabilities (those days). I created a graphics-software called Wildfire for this platform. Some of those old ideas from the Wildfire-software, for example motion curves, you may find even in JWildfire today
D.F.F: What was your inspiration for creating JWildfire?
Andreas: Initially, I just wanted to
Tiling LTS 1.20.08[17:46:58] Create a blank flameMore Like This
[17:48:49] Alright, now that we have our blank flame, move this red triangle up 1 and to the right 1 using the move buttons in the triangle tab
[17:49:40] (Not .1 or .01, but 1)
[17:50:12] next, add another triangle
[17:50:38] And move this triangle DOWN 1 and to the RIGHT 1
[17:51:18] next, create a third triangle and move it DOWN 1 and to the LEFT 1
[17:52:46] And by process of elimination, you can tell where the fourth transform is gunna go,right?
[17:53:02] *Annushkka has her four triangles ready
[17:53:03] create a fourth transform and move it UP 1 and to the LEFT 1
[17:53:35] Now, this part is where we start adding the details to the tiles
[17:54:03] these four linear triangles that you just created are what's gunna REPEAT your details and what makes the pattern tile
[17:54:21] DO NOT TOUCH THESE LINEAR TRIANGLES
[17:55:09] now, add a fifth transform and TAKE LINEAR OFF
[17:55:22] you will now notice a bun
