Spiral Tutorial for Apophysis

Here is a tutorial showing how I go about making all these spiral fractals. The file is a bit big - about 1.5 mb - due to the graphics.

I think some of you will be surprised at how I create them. I just took one flame and went with it, not knowing how it would look in the end. I got really nervous near the end after I had spiralized it. It just looked like crap. I'm thinking, "Great. I'm going to have to start over and do all these screenshots again." :doh: Fortunately, I found the right palette and everything worked out okay.

I don't know what's up, but I couldn't get the images any less compressed (and I tried several file formats), so the images in the PDF version look sucky. It should still give the user enough information to go out and create some great looking spirals.

Next, you just have to start learning Pascal to write some good scripts. :D

I changed the file to a zipped PDF so that it downloads directly instead of loading to the window. Sorry to those of you with dial-up! :( That was probably very sucky for you.
