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
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.
