Gnarl Batch Script +Flame Pack by *parrotdolphin is one of the most amazing scripts I have had the opportunity to use. This script is very versatile, and allows freedom to produce several kinds of variations. (written by suggester)

Gnarl Batch Script +Flame Pack

This is a batch script for Apophysis 2.08 or 2.08 3D Hack to generate n-sided shapes using the gnarl method. There is also a single run script included.

It generates 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 sided shapes - many resemble flowers.

Hate symmetry? Try adding a Final Transform. Or try BC and BD's Gnarl Base Scripts: [link] It's fun!

I believe it was :icongolubaja: that invented the gnarl method using waves2, so thanks to her.

This script requires the waves2 Plugin, which you can get from the Supermassive-Plugin-Pack at [link]

The zip file contains:
1 script called W2R Batch
1 script called W2R Single
1 flame pack with the flames shown here, plus some extras

The output from W2R Batch is saved to your Apophysis install directory as pd_W2R.flame.
If you like one of the flames, save it someplace else, because the script will overwrite the pd_W2R.flame file the next time it is run.

Things to try:
- move the first (red) transform around in the Transform Editor to get different effects.
- scale the first transform slightly smaller to get different effects, including spirals.
- move the other triangles around (sometimes there are 2 triangles, sometimes 3)
- change the Variations on the 2nd triangle
- add a Final Transform (linear=1, bubble=2 is fun)


And show me your stuff if you want to, I like to see. :)

EDIT: 01/20/2009
-Added linear3D :=0 on transforms so that it can be run in 2.08 3D Hack ~ thanks to *FracFx for the updated script and the suggestions on this.
-Added a feature to scale the first transform 99.5% half the time. It makes them more interesting I think.
-Added W2R Single script for a single run (not batch).

Much thanks to `DWALKER1047 and `LawrenceDeDark for featuring this as a DD. :hug:
