- cosmic anomaly - by DeepChrome - cosmic anomaly - by DeepChrome
My first piece with Apophysis 2.04 beta. It only took TWO HOURS to render at 3200 pixels across! :faint: I got a feeling this version will render even faster than before. Wow.

Anyways, this was done with a combination of noise variation, and mutations, and triangle tweaking. I must say, for noise and blur, you HAVE to use mutations as a starting point. Just an FYI. I'm going to have to try *dmschenk's Rays of Light script on other fractals like this one. I imagine it would be...very interesting. :nod:

Intersetingly, I can see someone coming out with some very UF-looking stuff with those two variations, so I look forward to seeing what everyone else comes up with. :D

It does have a very Star Trek look to it. I'm not much of a Trekkie, but it definitely has that feel. It's beautiful.

Thanks. Glad you liked it...I wasn't going for Trek when I made it, but I can see where people would get that.

Looks like the Enterprise NCC-1701-L? Is my trekkieness showing?! Gorgeous work!

Interesting...I'm a Trekkie, and I failed to catch that. :faint:

But yes, you're right! :rofl:

Nice and smooth 'whippy-thing' in space! How are you liking 2.04beta so far?

Liking. :D

I did this wicked sinusoidal/noise thing last night that I'm gonna put up in a few. :D

2.04's letting me do stuff I couldn't do with any other Apo version thus far.

Now if they would just get it to use layers like UF, and a Photoshop-style gradient-making plugin, I'd be in heaven. TOTAL heaven. :D

I'd never have guessed that this was an Apophysis creation. Beautiful flow of color and light. :+fav:

Thank you. Yeah, there's some new variations, two of them I think are going to get people creating stuff that look like the weirdest UF/Apophysis hybrids ever. :D And you know me--a sucker for finding just the color gradient. ;)

Tell me about it! I don't know how you get such perfect gradients. It must take forever.

Fiddling, fiddling, and more fiddling. :shrug: Patience, a liking for color, and putzing, I guess. I try to get a gradient that brings out the best of a fractal in my eyes, while downplaying those parts I don't want to see. That's it, I guess. It's time consuming but works for me.

I get the fiddling/putzing thing. Fractal programs are a Tweaker's Dream. I don't know how many times my stomach has grumbled, I've looked at the clock and thought, "Damn. I missed breakfast and lunch. Again!" :laughing:

I'm curious. Do you create gradients to try out on a fractal ... or do you tend more toward adjusting existing gradients? Also, do you have an intuitive feel for what colors will work best with a particular fractal?

I tend towards adjusting existing ones, or using the randomize button. I tend to go with an intuitive thing. Sometimes I hit on a fractal that just looks PERFECT in red--a color I tend to not use often. :shrug:

I shy away from red/orange for the most part. 99% of my fractals end up blue/purple/black and it's ... boring.

*makes mental note to go crazy with hot colors*

I have fun with blue/purple/black, but every once in a while I get a hotcolored one.

Like the one I'm gonna post up in a few. Well...once I figure out a title and where to stick said title. :D
