Prettify Your Bloom: Tips and Tricks
Fractal Art Week
Hello! :wave: It's C-91 here and, after people asking me tips on how to make flowers with Apophysis, I decided to write this introduction guide for the Fractal Week. There might be more in future. :flowerdread: 
Live with it: crafting flowers with Apophysis isn't the most original thing ever, but at least we can try to approach to the technique in another way and try to make them different from the multitude of results that can be found here on DeviantArt.

Some methods to add cool blurs to your fractal, requested by BoxTail and written in collaboration with him :hug:
The parameters are for learning purpose only. Please tweak a lot and credit back.
Part of Structured IFS tutorial collection.

Starting Parameters
As example, we will use basic elliptic splits parameters. Lets make it:
Start with a blank flameOn transform 1, replace linear with elliptic = 1Rotate it 90 degrees CCWScale transform 1 down by 150%
Add a new transformOn transform 2, replace linear with splits = 1Set splits_x variable to 1Rotate transform 2 90 CCWScale transform 2 up by 200%Or just grab the parameters here: Starting Parameters: Elliptic Splits

Trick 1. Falloff2 / falloff3
Falloff2 and falloff3 create amazing blur effects. For best r
