DISCLAIMER: This tutorial is untested!
If you find any errors/misspellings, please report it to me so that I can fix it.

Be warned, this is a semi-advanced tutorial. You will need a basic knowledge of the transform editor and it's parts, including post-transforms.

Get the square.dll or any other plugin here: [link]
Direct link to the download: [link]

Get a tiling script here: [link]
Direct link to my recommended tiling script: [link]
Direct link to a cube script: [link]

This is spawned from =f--l--A--r--k's Cube Tutorial(found here: [link]), which is where I learned the technique. So much thanks to =f--l--A--r--k for everything he helped with. (I even borrowed one of his images for this. I don't think he'll mind)

This is coincidentally my submission to =NFotM's senior fractalist tutorial contest.

Thanks to:

Photoshoop CSToo
Apopopophysis 2.07
Square OR SquareBlur plugin

Enjoy! Feedback is SO appreciated.

I can't figure out how to add the plugin to Apophysis? Could you help me?
The tutorial looks great!

Another person asked. :) Here's the link to my response, with the method.

I'd like to know how to add plugins. I've never used one before.

It's really easy. Just create a new folder in the same place that you have the actual Apophysis application. Name this folder "Plugins". Put all of the .dll's in here. Then restart Apophysis. Simple, huh? :) Note that if you have more than about 30 plugins, you will get all crazy tons of errors in Apophysis. This is fixed by having a second folder, (name it something like "PluginStorage" for simplicity) and keeping all of the plugins you aren't using in this folder. There's a great large world of plugins out there. Enjoy it! [link]

I have Apophysis 2.07, but not the square variation. Where can I download it?
Meiresthai's avatar
Ohh! You're totally right. I'll link to that, along with a tiling script! Check the artist's comment in a moment.
