Splits-Cylinder Tuto for Apo by Fiery-Fire Splits-Cylinder Tuto for Apo by Fiery-Fire
Apophysis Tutorial made for any version of Apo

This is a tutorial for splits-cylinder style in apophysis !!!

Tips:
1) You can still play with your color control by moving the color sliders on all four xfroms (Color speed is fixed for max outcome)

2) If you want smoother color application, try blurring your gradient slightly.

3) The 'pipes' can be textured, if you link-transform texturing variations to T3 & T4 - for example crackle or truchet ;)

4) You can test adding small amounts of cross or epispiral to either FX or T1, that will make very nice wavey shapes on your pipes.

5) FOR EVERYBODY< WHO DIDN"T DOWNLOAD and can't see the numbers !!
The PT coordinates for T3 are:
X= 0, -2.6
Y= 50, 0
Z=-0.65, 0
Move left by 0.7 (from 0,0)
T4 has identical PT, except it's moved by 0.7 of 0,0 to the right (which means 1.4units from T3)

please also on T2 in COLOR TAB, set the opacity =0
.
.
.

The original technique was made by :iconmeckie: and it has tons of possibilities in making
very cool apo abstracts !! User friendly and even newbee friendly !!

Enjoy it !!! :D

As always, I'm curious what you will come up with leave me a link to your new fractals :))) Have fun !!

This may be a stupid question but I'm trying to add texture and can't find 'link-transform' to save my life! Where is it!?!?

Here is the creation I made using the tutorial as basis.
I believe it is really a deviation.
How do I make this link again on a forum. I've forgotten how it works.
It's the image called "Anxiety" on my site.
Thanks ! :wave:

where do you git this supposed Splits plugin. my apo7x has the other two split and splits 3d not this splits
Reply
:iconfiery-fire:
Fiery-Fire Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
you can use splits3d as well :nod: Splits should be in standard 'apo-shack' plugin pack at #Fractal-Resources

Is there a difference from splits, spits3D, and splits marked with a blue 3D in apophysis 7x?
Reply
:iconfiery-fire:
Fiery-Fire Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
yes, there is three plugins, with similar names:
-split
-splits
-splits3D
and they all have different properties & variables :nod:

Chrizesu Featured By Owner Feb 9, 2012
I'm having this problem where I can't get it to work using the tutorial, but I can import someone else's and it works fine. It looks like I'm using the right variable though. A pickle of a situation.

I tried to download, but the computer wouldn't do it. I tried to follow this several times but didn't come out with the image from Step 4 :no: I just downloaded Apo 7x. I have used the other version a long time ago. but I took it out of the computer. thinking the two would work well or that's what i took the site to say. i'm probably wrong. :confused: I need help of some kind. :please:

I have no idea, how could I possibly assist you - any version of apo should be good for this tuto,
as long as you have the right plugins.

Late reply, Im not online as often as before :)
Plugins are what displays as variations in your Apo editor window, for example for this tutorial you need
splits, cylinder, pre_blur :nod:
