My 3.3 Gigapixel mandelbulb image is finished, after 1 month of rendering and two weeks of stitching... :P

Here it is: mandelwerk.com/

Enjoy! :)


Thank you Daniel White: www.skytopia.com/project/fract… ...and Paul Nylander:www.bugman123.com/ ...and all the other geniuses at Fractal Forums: www.fractalforums.com/the-3d-m… ...who spent lots of time and effort finding this beast.
Thanks all!
AND, Thanks 2 Subblue, who made the PixelBender script I use to find and render my images with:

I saw one of your animations on Youtube. Brilliant! I am trying to learn Mandelbulb and/or Boxplorer and/or Mandelbulber. (Heartfelt plea coming...) They are driving me mad - do you know of any tutorials I could look at?

I have looked but not found.

Thanking you in advance for any help yoiu could give!

I'm not quite that ambitious...:lol:
But I am currently trying for a 15000x15000px.
I'll let you know if it actually happens. No AA
for the first try, as VOC reduces size when you
go AA.

Stunning Johnn! :faint: :clap: lost myself in there for a while! :crazy:
Think a little water spray Photoshopped coming out of the wee 'fountain' at the top
would just set it off nicely though....:giggle:

:) An old MacBook Pro... But the pixelbenderscript is rather effective, using the GPU.
