# An Amazing Surf 'Roots' How-To

## Deviation Actions

Hello! I'm here to give you some tips while working with Amazing Surf formula! Before start to look, checkout Jorge's wonderful AMAZING SURF 2 tutorial over there ->
Okay. Let's Begin. Open Mandelbulb3D, and replace Integer by Amazing Surf. Zoom little bit out, and it should look like this:
Now change some values of formula:
Scale: 1.2
Min R: 0.1
Fold: 2.5
Rotation1 X: 13
Rotation1 Y: 9
Rotation1 Z: -20
Scale Vary: 0
Sphere or Cylinder: 0
When you zoom into center little bit, you may already see forming some little curls like this:

Now turn on Julia on and put these values:
X: 0.5
Y: -0.125
Z: 0
And we're done! For experimenting, higher or lower surf/julia values and get more mystery shapes! (Tip: Put Asurf to 3-4-5th slot, to put before it different formula. It can enhance your Asurf fractal) Examples: , , and much more!
If you just want to try out asurf by preloaded params, here you go, tweak!

Thanks !
My pleasure.
Thank you!!
No problem
Really the root tutorial for Amazing Surf
I may not make MBD fractals for now, but I may make a new tut soon!
So useful tutorial: thank you
No problem, have fun!
I followed your tutorial here: fav.me/dag0a57
thanks again!
thank you for sharing!
I played with your paras: fav.me/dafqvm7
Commented!
And for Amazing Surf-_RotatedAbs??? I have never succeed 'cause I don't know what to insert in  _RotatedAbs
_RotatedAbs is another additional formula you can use after getting 'average' shapes. Those Ads are modificating the hape more than other basic formulas do. You can get great shapes even without using Ads and just playing with formulas parameter and julia. I'd suggest also check out this tutorial by   . He's even more skilled than me. You can ask him about it as well. He's very good artist, mainly by the technical side.
I am a beginner and you are speaking with me in a technical language that I don't understand

I really haven't understood this tutorial about Amazing Surf2
Thanks so very much..... I was wondering how to do this.... I see them but I never knew how to get there from scratch.
Happy I helped
Interesting tut for us newbies.
I would like to add my findings.

Keep going back to the Julia options.
Whatever the formula you can fine tune detail from there.

Also - as far as I can see you only need 1 iteration for this particular formula in most combos.  Their is a tendency for some formulas to dominate and increasing the iterations in these circumstances may well redress the balance.

Also - I - noticed the lack of pixels in one or two areas which can be corrected by setting Sphere or Cylinder to 0 then carefully tweaking scale vary (if it still needs it).
Very nice find!! You're very helpful! Thanks!
Short and sweet - just my speed. I tend to forget how nicely repeating a formula can work and some starting values are much appreciated. Thank you!!
Most welcome! Enjoy!
Nicely put together yes I like asurf 2 as well and noted from Jorges work that it helps to repeat formula in other slots sometimes
Hope you will try this one out
Bravo Lukas, you did very well indeed. Thanks!
So, you will get more Asurf forms in you add it to more slots?

Thank you for doing this, I never knew how to get to surfing curls without playing around with the formulas!
