I'm new to fractal art, but I've tried both Apophysis and Chaotica. It just blows my mind that you could get images like this from either program! How did you figure out just which variations/transforms to use in which combinations and just how to size and position your transforms/iterators to get such control over the output? I'm so impressed!
Thank you! Mostly by following lots of tutorials and studying other fractallists' parameters, until I got more of a feel for the software. I've got a whole folder of really great tutorials from some really awesome artists in my favourites.
