The new Apophysis chat room rules:
Please feel free to join us in our Apophysis Chat Room!
Stop in and ask questions, share some parameters, post up your latest fractals, or just talk. Be sure to also join us when we have cool events in the chat room, you can learn something new with Live Tutorial Sessions or experiment with some cool flames with the Speed Fractalism Sessions. We do have a few rules in the chat room though, mostly from dA's general chat rules, but be sure to give them a look.
Most of our rules coincide with deviantART's chat room rules, which can be viewed here: FAQ #287: What rules apply to the Chat Network?
In short, the general rules are:
1. Keep it legal - Please don't talk about illegal software or activities
2. No spamming - Don't post things over and over (including thumbs, emotes, etc.) and don't advertise, if you would like to affiliate with us, you can note us.
3. English plz - short hand is fine, but the #Apophysis chat room has English-speaking admins and mods, so we really can't keep track of anything if you speak in Mandarin, French, Arabic, or any other language. Unless one of our admins is a secret linguist.
4. Accept Responsibility - Try to keep it civil and friendly, that's the goal of the chat room. If something happens (problems, etc.), please let us know by noting us, if you have a problem with a particular admin, please note a different admin of Apophysis and we will resolve the conflict ASAP.
5. No naughty topics! - We are a chat room for Apophysis and while you can talk about whatever you like, just remember what kind of a site this is and what discussions would be appropriate - some of our members might have kids near the computer at times.
That's it for the general rules! Be sure to take a look at the other rules and expanded information here: FAQ #287: What rules apply to the Chat Network?
Hints for #Apophysis:
1. The staff of Apophysis will try to be in the chat room when possible, if not we do have two chat room moderators: ouT-Phaze and RyannaSilverthorn who help us out. You can note any of us with problems and we will resolve the issue and hopefully be there to give some helpful Apo-tips for anyone interested.
2. If you would like to post some fractal parameters, please warn us before posting them by typing "IWoT" (Incoming Wall of Text) first.
Also, subscript tags when posting parameters (< sub > and < /sub >, are awesome things to use, since we know that parameters are HUGE!
3. Try to keep the chat room free of drama! We would appreciate it if you don't bring arguments and other disagreements from another chat into #Apophysis.
-Try not to post a million thumbs at once, use the single-line input to post thumbs
-As for how many, we really just ask that you not post a bunch of thumbs at once. Posting a few is fine for feedback, but the chat room isn't a good place to post thumbs of your entire gallery. If you would like to submit a fractal to the group so we can promote it, feel free to send it to us and take a look at the submission policy if you haven't yet.
A word on content:
-No thumbs or links to pornographic materials, viruses, links directly for +devwatches or +favorites, and links to websites with racist/hateful content. If you keep it civil and clean, we'll all be good.
Special event Rules:
Live Tutorial Sessions (LTS):
For the Live Tutorial Session, usually one person is giving helpful information to everyone in attendance. We ask that you hold any conversations or thumbs relating to anything other than the topic being discussed until the LTS is over. Feel free to ask the Tutorialist questions though, they are there to help and teach.
Speed Fractalism Sessions (SFS):
For Speed Fractalism Sessions, we post up a set of parameters in which everyone has one hour to tweak the fractal, render it, and post it. Discussions are open, but just remember there is something going on at the same time and we may be busy with Apophysis.
More information on chat room events will be posted shortly, these are just the basic rules.
If you have any suggestions for rules that need to be added, please let us know by noting us.
Thank you so much for reading all of this! Now head on over to the chat room!
The Return of the SFS!
It has been a long time coming, but in celebration of the new rules and a return to activity here, we are holding our first new Speed Fractalism Session this Sunday, November 30th, at 1 P.M. EST.
Join us in the #Apophysis chat room for a speed parameter tweaking session. Have fun, interact with other members of Apophysis, and maybe learn something about a certain style of fractal.
Phoenix-22 will be your host and we hope to see you in there this weekend!
Apophysis is not the work of one single person. We are a community and every member deserves recognition for our present success. Both Administrators and Members do what you see here for fun and for the love of our communty. We won´t change that!

Over the years this group has been a great inspiration to many. It has come to our attention that real life has put a burden on us older admins :). So, we are looking for new energetic apophsis artists that are willing to take on the task of getting this group active again. Requirements would be that you need to have a good knowledge of how to use apophysis, energetic attitude to assist other artists in learning how to use apophysis, and the want to get activities going within this group. Please have apophysis work in your gallery as you apply we will be looking at your portfolio to see how knowledgeable you are with apophysis. Pleas
Apophysis Plugins - Creating them in Visual Studio
Hey folks, during the last week, I had C-91 (https://www.deviantart.com/c-91) around (:heart:) and obviously, we did some fractal work together :w00t: During this, we needed to create some ad-hoc plugins to do the things we wanted to do. Well - not that it's something new for me because I kinda do this all the time but it gave me the idea that maybe I should write up how you actually create the plugins with x86 / x64 processor architecture support. I'm well aware that it's not very well documented so I try to fill this gap now with this little guide. First off, I don't like to call it a "new" way to create plugins. You still create them with the same interface you had
Joe here, aka Meddler Inc, coming out of lurk-land and saying hello. Now, we have been a bit lag in things, so allow me to apologize on behalf of the Apo team. We will try to get everything peanut-butter smooth in the coming weeks. To all who have submitted work to us, and have not seen it on the feed, we implore you to re-submit if possible. Which leads me to the next topic. As a reminder to all new and old members of the group, you are allowed only four submissions within a 30-day (one month) period. This might be a typo on my part; if any of the admins wish to correct me, feel free to. We are always looking for new artwork to look throu
It has been brought to my attention that CMWVisualArts (https://www.deviantart.com/cmwvisualarts) is willing to render Apophysis params for free at high quality. I was informed that this service is available to assist those in need of high quality renderings that their computer just won't allow due to not memory. If you are interested and the choice is yours here is a link to the journal explaining everything in detail. :thumb304211627: the basics are listed below: I'm willing to do so, for nothing in return. Just note these few things: 1.) ALL of the renders will be 10,000 density, so if you don't like high quality, don't do it. 2.) They will be whatever size you ask me
