What's this?
Still looking for textures and fractal generator this plugin is based on this link!

The result is impressive.

Tip: Give better results with large images (5000x5000 or 4000x3000 or 3200x2400).

(Have you checked out TechnoRobbo's Strange attractors?)

Yes I have. Fractal "world" is wide. My plugin is just a small focus on a specific formula.

The Strange attractor and my fractal attractor are really different...


And as mine is fast enough you could see the change nearly in real time.

Even if you say so yourself  :D

Yes of course, I'm the first one to be surprised by this effect. I want you too to play with this plugin ("too to" is ok?:roll:).

Sooner you'll see what I'm able to do with on my gallery...

Thank you Madjik for another wonderful plugin. Very versatile, I used emboss to create the texture, made the torus using WelshBlue's Torus tute (I had this on file, so no link sorry), Colour Tint, Inner Shadow, ClipWarp, Gradients & a few other standard plugins. I really enjoyed doing this one. 


Thank you again for sharing :star:

Hallo Seerose,

Many thanks for your welcome to me.
Yes, Hamburg is a magical city, but the shady sides of this once very clean city are becoming more and more visible. And yet it still lives very well here, especially the huge green areas, parks or the Raakmoor invite you to relax and also to observe rare animals and plants. Hamburg is my city: -))), 
Greetings to you
