[Animation] 2019-01-20 Hyperdimensional Crossing
I have to say, this is the first time in my life that I've made something that completely took my own breath away. I dropped everything I was doing and watched the GIF for a good 5 minutes.

It's amazing how many neat shapes got packed into this animation, given that the parametric curves I used for this were very simple. Tr a moves on a diagonal line from -2 to 2 + 2i. Tr b moves on a diagonal that goes the other way from 2 to -2 + 2i. The lines intersect on the imaginary axis at 1i, which somehow collapses the image into a horizontal line for a frame. 

About These Fractals

I've been playing around with the fractal recipes from the book Indra's Pearls by Mumford et al. This set of animations is based on "Grandma's Recipe" given in the book. I use parametric curves to select the two complex number parameters for this recipe with slight changes each frame.

I generated the parameters for this with a Python script I'm working on: (github.com/ptrgags/mobius), rendered the frames in Chaotica, and combined them into a GIF with ImageMagick.

[Animation] 2019-01-20 Thunderswirls
This one was generated by making the parameters travel in two disjoint circles in the complex plane.

It's interesting how these fractals tend to be chaotic, but reach certain pairs of points in the complex plane and the structure snaps into something with clear order, like the circle in the middle of this animation.

[Animation] 2019-01-20 Hyperdimensional Clockwork
I tried making the parameter Tr a go from 2 -> 0 while Tr b goes from 2 -> 10. The result looked like gears.

[Animation] 2019-01-20 Diagonally
For this animation, the parameter Tr a stays at 2 while Tr b travels from 2 + 2i -> 0 along a diagonal.

[Animation] 2019-01-20 Gasket Explosion
This is the first animation I made of this sort. It starts at the sierpinski gasket (Tr a = 2, Tr b = 2) and then I simply slid one of the parameters along the real axis.

Hi everyone,

Like I've done the past couple years, I made a graphics programming project to share with friends. This year, I took my interests in fractals and tilings and made a web page out of them. I made a real-time renderer based on the Chaos Game that displays tiles as they get transformed around the screen. I could keep talking about the technical details all day, but it's more fun to skip to the pictures:

2018-12-27 Spiraling by ptrgags2018-12-27 Windmill by ptrgags
2018-12-27 Circles by ptrgags
All of the above + over 2 million more combinations are available at the website I made: ptrgags.github.io/holiday-eyec…

There is a link to a tutorial video on the page to help you get started. Also note that this website looks best on a larger screen like a desktop/laptop or bigger. It will work on mobile, but it's cramped.

If you find any pretty combinations you'd like to share, please comment with the settings code! (they look similar to this: WzEsMCwwLDIzLDYsNCw4XQ==)

Have a wonderful rest of the holiday season,
Peter

You're quite welcome! When I see art on here, I like to provide feedback since I know how important and uncommon that can be on here.

It also means sometimes I'm super slow to get through my notification stack. Providing good feedback takes time. So a belayed thank you for all the favorites in the past!
