Does anyone really understand Apophysis and how to work with it?
I mean... Can anyone imagine something and do it? Because I do my pictures like "Let's try this... and this... and... this... and... ok, it looks fine even though I don't have any idea what the hell it is" :D
Well... I just don't understand this program so I try to use some funtions and sometimes it's good, sometimes not and usually it's "Heart of" something. So to make it different this time I call it "Core". :D

I definitely couldn't do this as commisions because client would like a flower and I would do a car... :D

Try following some tutorials, they really help :)
This collection of tutorials is great.
This specific Linear Tutorial is quite easy to follow and can have great outcomes :)
Also try searching for other tutorials once you're a little bit more familiar with things in apo. There are awesome tutorials out there!

I have been using Apophysis since 2005 and I don't understand it either.  I do exactly what you do with the flame programs I use.  I have Apophysis on one laptop, and jwildfire on another. 

Since, so far as I know, Apophysis hasn't been updated in years, it may eventually not work on different or newer OS's.  Just a guess. I don't really know.

There are many tutorials on dA, if you check the Apophysis group or do a search for Apophysis tutorials.  I never could do them because I have learning disabilities and some things I just don't "get".  I don't understand what the directions are telling me to do.  Somewhere between my brain and my hands something goes amiss and what I perceive is not what the tutorial is saying.  I know this because when you have that kind of a tutorial, they will show step by step a screen capture of what your workspace in Apo should look like, and  mine never did.  So I did just what you do.  I try different stuff, tug those transforms around, resize them, try different  weights, all that good stuff and see what I come up with.  Even as frustrating as it is, I still love fractals, especially flame fractals.  Don't give up.  This is very lovely and vibrant!

Oh thank you! I'm glad that I'm not the only one! :D
I tried some tutorial but sometimes I think that my Apo doesn't do what it should do by the tutorial. Or I don't have addons and if I try to install them, thy don't work. So I really need to do only try and hope... :D

Yes, it can be tricky to make it work correctly, and I always had a problem with it along the way.  But I love it anyway!
