Hello people.

Journal Entry: Thu Feb 19, 2015, 9:33 AM


Some news for you!

1) For anybody that downloaded TgladTetra. It is painfully slow?
NOW NO MORE :D - Redownload to get the fast version (3x faster to render. Now it should be as fast as the normal integer power). This was done using expansions of the trigonometric functions. ;)

www.fractalforums.com/mandelbu…

Read the tip:

"19 feb; huge optimization for Tglad's formulas, by the way the resulting julias will come out different.
To fix this issue SWAP X & Y in the SEED and you will get the same julias again. cheesy This won't be an issue I hope in front of a 3x speed gain? wink"

2) Please anyone who wants to enter in the contest; hurry up as the deadline I would like to have is 20 february, but I can wait more if anyone needs more time?
Also remember that normally I'll pick ONE fractal as winner for each category even if I am undecided on some. :( Probably will do a poll. Or a mix of entries ;)

3) As promised I show you the holy cow :giggle:

Holy Cow by TABASCO-RAREMASTER

4) Impossible things happen in Japan ( :wow: )



5) That's all. ;)

I NEED HELPERS

Journal Entry: Fri Feb 6, 2015, 3:15 PM


edit. Added more details in the explanation
Be patient and read everything. Tell me if sthg remains unclear as soon as you can.

Dear friends
I am looking for a set of new sample params that will be included with the next Mb3d x2, that will be a formula update + a param update.

You CAN CONTRIBUTE AND YOUR NICK will be in the param name.

Resulting images must be elegant, incisive and clean, with a stepwidth of 0.5 to min 0.3! I will be very exigent with those requirements! Sample images are examples of elegance in my eyes.

no decombines. (ALTERNATE MODE each formula can have any number of iterations 1 to 20, leave maxiter to 60 as it's fast to render). And no weird looking images. Remember the elegance rule, fractals are not random :)
Use neutral colors. That means; not full hue ones, prefer those more grey-ish, in general. You always can use coloured lights (just not use all the colors in the spectrum at once if possible) - and you can use dynamic fog also AND any other option in postprocess tabs and such! If you can handle this, you can get very nice effects.

IMPORTANT: Just avoid completely to use maps! Hope it's not a limit for you. :shrug:

Choose a nice point of view. Can't tell which is a nice pov. You choose... but it should show some nice details for sure. For "details" I mean fractal details (sorry to be pedantic) whenever possible (that said some combination tend to hide fractal details but I understand this :) ).

I need params using those formulas:

A: MixPinski4 (or 4ex) first slot + something else
An image of this style (very rarely used despite its versatility!):
sub rosa by bermarte
B: invcylindical + (repeat from) reciprocal(x y or z) 3b + sierphilbert NO OTHER FORMULAS ALLOWED
(you can still vary number of iters of SierpHilbert, effect drastically change!)
An allowed variation (thanks MJB)
B: invcylindical + (repeat from) sierphilbert + reciprocal(x y or z) 3b NO OTHER FORMULAS ALLOWED
(you can still vary number of iters of SierpHilbert, effect drastically change!)
An image of this style:
Non-linear transmission by Vidom
C: ABoxMod1 + ABoxModKali, any combination/order of them is ok
An image of this style (formulas are different but just a sample...):
Modmod Giku by bib993
D: any IFS formula and _ngon or _ngon2 (2 formulas total and reverse order ok)
IFS formulas are a whole lot. For example; Menger3 MengerIfs Menger4 Sierpinski3 Cantor... don't remind exactly. DIFS are another thing ok?
IFS -> 3Da tab and 4Da too
An image of this style (very rarely used despite its versatility!):
405 by AkuraPare
E: aexionC only, or with one of the following in any order; _FlipXYc, _FlipXZc, _FlipYZc, _GenCWarp, GenIntPower, _IntPowRotateC, _RotateC.
A rare, beautiful image of this style:

Made a new version that is a lot better and consistent with normal ABox. Please use that and delete the old one.
Too bad old results will be unobtainable with the current version.
