Shadow Theater

The other day, I was skimming through some old parameters as part of a discussion with teundenouden, when I re-discovered these parameters from 2015.  At the time, I think I postponed the render due to its length, then ended up forgetting about it.  Now, after a little bit of cleanup to the brightness/gamma/curves, with a single-precision Fractorium GPU render, this only took a couple of hours (and with overkill zoom and quality too!).  :D

Named after the album by Tigran Hamasyan.

An Apophysis 7x/Fractorium fractal.  As with all my fractals, I highly recommend you zoom in for the best viewing experience.

Parameters: November 21, 2015 - May 11, 2018
Render: May 12, 2018

That looks pretty good. Some of the white colored vertical lines on the left side of the center have some jagged edges. Smooth lines are critical to a good looking final render.

I'd recommend experimenting with the spatial filter width and type as well as the supersample value in the interactive editor. That should help smooth out those lines. If you can't get it, I'd be happy to help with the params privately.

I had totally overlooked those...thanks for spotting them!  I admit I haven't experimented much with the spatial filter before.  Unfortunately, increasing supersample up to 3 doesn't seem to help much, and the jagged lines seem resistant to spatial filtering--I have to increase the width up to 1.5 to start noticing improvement, and at that level it starts to make many other (perfectly fine) lines blurrier as well.

I'll note you the parameters.  Thanks for the help!  :D
The colors really compliment each other Love

I really like how you use the color
