What is Apophysis?
Apophysis is a freeware tool that allows one to create fractal flame images or animations. Now what exactly are fractal flames?
Fractal Flames are algorithmically generated images and animations. The shape of each image is specified by a long string of numbers - a genetic code of sorts. Flames are an extension of the iterated function system class of fractals (IFS), so what you see is essentially a histogram of a complex system.
Those of you more interested in the mathematical background behind Apophysis you can find a detailed description on flam3.
What can Apophysis do?
In the hands of an expert, Apophysis can be used to manipulate iterated function systems to produce truly unique and artistic images and animations. Make no mistake about it, though the program aids in the computation and placement of the image, in the end the user has total control over image quality, form, and color placement.
To showcase some of the best Apophysis based art on deviantART we have assembled a selection of what we feel are images that personify fractal art in its best and most impressive form, both visually and in terms of technique used with the program itself.
(Not all of these artists are members of the Apophysis group!)
This list is not sorted in any specific order. We plan to showcase 12 different images and no artist will be put up twice. If you feel like you know just the right image to put up or you have one in your gallery you feel is worth showcasing please send a note to the administration with a link to the image.
If you have time and want to find more art created with Apophysis check the fractal gallery on dA. Not all of the work there is Apophysis, but quite a lot of it is.
Where can I find Apophysis?
You can download either the Apophysis Version 2.02 or Apophysis 2.0 Source Code.
Additionally, you can download Apophysis 2.08 Beta 2 HERE
You can also create fractal flames with the Gimp's flame plug-in (for Linux and OSX).
Keep an eye out for certain "hacks" (custom versions created by Apophysis enthusiasts) and the latest versions on our resource page here: apophysis.deviantart.com/journ…

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
