very cool tut! A really good alternative to Fiji is Jwildfire (the one I use to pile up voxels).

Really? You can compile the voxel stacks exported from Mandelbulb 3d in Jwildfire? Wow, I'll have to test that out too. Or do you just mean fractals made in Jwildfire?

Yeah, I've been using it for this purpose for a while now. I like the 2.50 version better. Basically does the same thing that Fiji does, but you can watch the process (and know when is over). Also Jwildfire features some interesting editing options like a gauss effect. If you want to try it out, you might want to use my params, after a lot of trial and error:

Image Downsample_ 1
Spatial filter 0
B treshold 20
image step 1

Usually I dont use the prefilters, I prefer to smooth it out in meshlab or blender, but they can be handy when working with kleinians, for example.

So I highly recommend Jwildfire to work with voxels. The only thing is that sometimes it offers a deformed mesh, but this can be easily corrected in Meshlab:

Scale, z axis 0.5 (sometimes 0.33), uncheked Uniform scaling.

Cheers!
