Congratulations on the new website for mb3d, it looks great! And thank you for all your time, talent and hard work on both mb3d and JWildfire.

Thank you very much! :-)

hello andreas,
thank you very much for your continuing efforts to get more and more from the old good mb3d!

can i ask you (programmer looking into mb3d code actively)...
is it possilbe to re-work or better to start new project in case of:

- "only difs" mb3d version with not only 6 formulas in chain?
- mb3d version with not a simple chain of formulas but something like xaos table in apophysis?
- 64-bit external renderer working for old 32-bit mb3d exported data?

sorry, if my questions are silly and yes there is mandelbulber around, i know...

As a general tip: there is already a software which let all your dreams come true, but you must code the formulas by yourself as OSL-shaders. It is called Octane Vectron and costs only about 20 bucks per month. I have started a repo with formulas a while ago: https://github.com/thargor6/FFVectron

thanks a lot for your feedback and interesting tip, andreas!


octane/vectron looks great but i assume i need more cuda/opencl friendly graphic card... my is > 8 years old and new comp. is too expensive right now to someone paying to give fractal gifts to the others :D


anyway, i downloaded demo of standalone octane to check...

Hi, those questions are not silly, but where discussed already very often. The answer is that any change to the core is very riskful because of the kind of code. In the most cases it is not worth the effort, a new project would make much more sense, but also takes a lot of effort. It is really a lot of work, so probably, it will never happen, unfortunately.


Cheers!
