TR's Strange Attractors v1.1.3 - August 8th, 2014

Recommended Posts

Hi Sasha - there are few 'teething problems' with this version (1.0.6) at the moment.

But, the idea is that you either move some of the sliders or click the randomize button then after about 30 seconds it will show you the image created - if you like it press ok. - or you can change the colours. Nothing to draw and no source image... and some settings won't give a result. But it is definitely worth trying when TR sorts the 'bug' out. ;)

Sasha - thanks for the error message I will try to duplicate the error and fix. Sorry for the inconvenience. But it should yield nice results if you listen to Red's advice. From the error message I'd say dont click on anything else until it finishes rendering. I will fix later today - right before I do the video.

 

Red  - thanks for helping out.

Thanks for the help Red & Techno. But I don't get chance to move a slider or hit randomize, it crashes upon opening the plugin (the previous version was the same too)

Hi @Sasha - I wonder if you're using v4 ? I got a crash or two, on v3, but I ignored the prompt to restart PDN and then everything was OK. It does take time (when you get it to stop crashing, that is) to 'render' .... you have to be patient and sometimes you do get a very small pin prick and nothing else. Just have to keep trying the sliders

every which way.  Good luck :)

Thank you Pixey for your help also. I am now back on 3.5.11 for now. And after Five crashes & no restarts, Ten clumps of hair pulled out and One full swear box later, I managed to create this :)

Is the RBG order of the colors a test whether users are reading the labels in the dialog? ;-)

I thought Color scheme names might help people visualize them better.

Just wondering why its RBG and not RGB...

Oh. I just like to do kookie things some times.

 

To All Version 1.0.7 is upload - let me know if you have any issues

I agree, some very nice pics :)

Great fun to play around with Techno. I created this by stretching the result right off the canvas with move selection, then added a little bit of your scatter.

Thanks for your creativity in plugin writing. :)

Version 1.08 Uploaded  Introduces Auto-Redo to insure a useable render everytime.

Auto Redo identifies a bad render and restarts the process until a good image is rendered.

 

Turn Off Auto-Redo to do manual settings

 

4th algorithm added

I like the new version (1.0.8) - watched it make 8 attempts at algorithm D - got something on the 9th!

Seems to be a time saver - good idea & no crashes!

Are successful settings and render time dependant upon canvas/selection size?

(If not, it may be worth adding the ability to export an xml of the settings used? - and possibly even share them in this thread? - just a thought.)

Many of the results seem to be rotationally symmetrical - could that be a way to save time? (haven't looked at the code yet).

Also there seems to be much more detail in the images than immediately strikes the eye. Perhaps some of the attempts I had written off (with just a couple of bright pixels), may contain 'hidden' patterns.

Yes completely dependent since it's a roving point carving out an image.

 

Your example is an excellent pointer for all users. 

 

BTW , your the one who got me thinking about the Auto-Redo- reps to you!
