Morphing Flower for Lux by recycledrelatives Morphing Flower for Lux by recycledrelatives
UPDATE:  This animation was chosen for the second place prize in Lux's Challenge mentioned below.  Very Amused Emoticon II by Weapons-Expert-Cool 

Please, please, please
wait for this whole animation to download before forming any opinions.  I think t's really cool to watch when it speeds up, but there is a bit of a wait.  This "flower" changes direction and remorphs three times!

This is my very first animation... and will probably be my last!  I'm not sure what I did wrong, but this took nearly 20 hours to render!  I still have a lot to learn I guess.  Please be kind.  Heart  It's not always about winning; sometimes it's about learning something new that's most important.

The two formulas I used are ManowarBulb and _PolyFolding with Julia on.  I created this effect by changing only the ManowarBulb Power setting in small increments.  A total of 225 images make up this animation. 

This is my entry for Lux's Challenge in the 2nd Annual Teaser Contest held by :iconmandelbulb3dteasers:

Thanks in advance for any comments and faves.

you did a great job , 20 hours is probably what to expect here, some animations take many weeks to render :)

20 hours rendering time is nothing. My animation Anderland took 3 weeks in 1920 x 1080 resolution. :)
You should be patient and go on, it's a nice result!

Yikes!  Three weeks of rendering would kill my computer!  I might tackle another animation someday when my patience is at optimum levels.  Thanks for commenting!

I like your animation! 225 pix / 20 hrs = 11,25 pix per hr! That's not slow. :D Imagine drawing it by any other method...

Well, I only rendered the first 75 pix and then copied and pasted those two more times for a total of 225 keyframes and subframes.  I reversed the order of the middle group of 75, which took a little while. The first 75 pix are what took most of that 20 hours to render!  Now it doesn't sound so fast, does it?  Oh well.  I might do another someday just the same.

Thanks for commenting, Hans!  :typer: revamp

Fast, slow.. it's, of course relative. :) I have single pictures that took more than 20 hrs to render (1600x2000px).
Good idea to copy/reverse like that. Sounds like a lot of work, though. I'm tempted to try animation, but still too lazy ;)

Glad you like it!  It was a bit frustrating, but I may try a second one someday.  Perhaps a "journey" type instead of a kaleidoscope animation.  Thanks!  -Dance-

I'm happy that you did take the time to download and watch my first animation! There's always a lot of frustration with first times for these types of things, if you know what I mean.  Thanks so much for the nice comment, Sabine!  Flower Bullet (Red) - F2U!

Oh yes, first times with fractal-programs can be quite annoying when you know how it is supposed to work in great lines and you find out that you really have to find the small print to make it work as you wish ;)
You are very welcome, Glenda! :iconflowerhdplz:
