Apo Plugins: Starter Pack by FarDareisMai Apo Plugins: Starter Pack by FarDareisMai
You can either download the .zip through dA, or, if you prefer, here is a dropbox link: [link]

This plugin pack is meant for beginners. As useful as the Aposhack Plugin Pack is, it can be very intimidating to download all 400+ plugins and not have a clue which ones are useful. I've even seen a new fractaller try to stick the entire pack in their plugins folder!

So, this is a pack of the most widely used & useful plugins. It is meant as a starting point for people installing plugins for the first time, not an exhaustive library. It also includes a text file giving credit to the coders of each plugin.

I didn't feel like a proper preview image, so here's a photo of my kitties!

Thank you for this!  I'm just getting started with Apophysis and am overwhelmed to say the least.

meooooow! :elypetsgomi:

and thanks for the plugin pack ^^ - Apo is already intimidating as such (like pressing at random quite anywhere often gives nice pics, but you get no clue what you're doing, lol...)

serious kitties

I've been experiencing some difficult problems with Apo not "seeing" variations so this is essential. Thank you so very much for putting this list together since it makes reinstalls that much easier without going through the entire list of what I need/ use. It is definitely a good starting place. Hugs.

BTW, awesome cats. Hopefully next year I will be able to post some as well (gotta love living in an apartment and deposits...) Hugs!!

when i go into the program folder for ApopHysis 7x 32bit there is not a folder called plugins. so I made one and added the pluging there. Then when i restarted the program I had the error message telling me that it could load and so on. Any help would be great. I am a today born newbie :)

Hey Im quite new to this. How do you install these plug ins? or where do I place the files? - thanks
FarDareisMai Featured By Owner Aug 29, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
Your apo install should have come with a folder called Plugins. The .dll files go in there.
Tareebi Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2013
you who are both knowledgeable and gracious with your creative angst, I thank you
goofygrmom3 Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2013
Thanks tons. As a beginner, I'd like to know how to install the plugins. Thanks.
FarDareisMai Featured By Owner Jul 13, 2013  Hobbyist Artist
All you have to do is put the .dll files in the Plugins folder, which should be in the same directory as your apophysis exe.

cute kitties, Large one, "don cha mess with me"; the smaller one in front sez, "aw, I wanna play, put your hand over here and let me kick and bite it." Love catz, own catz, mostly Siamese.

Thanks for the plug in folder. As for the cats... They look to be having a conversation. "Can I has them for eat now boss?", "Patience, patience. Let them start rendering then we strike at their keyboard and chord."

Big Kitty photo! I am sure this will be helpful to a lot of new fractal artists, I know at first I found plugins to be very overwhelming. :)
Thanks for the hard work
