AAAAAAAAAAAARGH!! :twisted:

Using Chaoscope and Apophysis is complicated. The UI dosn't make sense. How the hell do I make my own fractal!

Are there any other FREEWARE fractal makers?

I love freeware by the way!

With Chaoscope, my suggestion is to use the Search function to find an attractor, then tweak the numbers until you find something you like.

Chaoscope is fairly easy: press CTRL+N, select your preferences, then hit F3 and you're off; The Chaoscope UI is relatively easy compared to others; There's no need to curse; Use Search.

But that's the whole thing, I find an attractor but when it comes teaking all those numbers, it gets WORSE!!! Not better, worse!

Even if i do manage to get a nice result, the colouring of the fractal is an issue.

In a way, I prefer apophysis, because it gives a kind of attractor which is easy top edit by using the transform editor and the colouring of the fractal ain't that bad either. However, it doesn't let me choose a view angle etc.

Use very very small adjustments. The tweaks sometimes lead to far uglier fractals. But you just keep toying with it until you see something you like. :)

There is no reason to get that irritated. You won't learn how to work anything if you get that mad.

That one looks a lot cooler. :-)

Well, as cool as ncfan51 is... :wink:

What exactly do you mean by that? :|

My initial link to my DeviantART account actually linked (how, I do not know) to the reply form, which had a quote by you in it all filled out. I fixed it, and David liked my fractal. You're cool and all (really and truly), but I don't need to supply links for people to quote you ( :) ). It was just weird and random. No offense meant. :oops:

BTW: I've been featured by *DeviousFractals on DA!

Exciting! My Christmas Tree fractal was in a Christmas Fractal newspost...that's hardly a claim to fame!

Yours, on the other hand...Congrats, Sozo!

Well, I took out my anger and threw it in the bin!

After some experimentation I came up with these:

Made with Apophysis 3D:

Made with Chaoscope:

Being honest, I had to edit the first image as it looked a bit grainy so I removed that with Reduce Noise Plugin which really did impress me!

I like the first one a lot. Maybe it's just because it's blue, I'm a suck-up for anything blue >_>

When my fractals don't come out bright enough sometimes I have to edit them in PdN as well. Just simply duplicate the fractal layer and put in a background color layer...

No-one shall ever know...

....Oh, wait... Did I say that?

you can change the rendering settings or change the options just to make it bright

-I tried to duplicate the fractal layer but some part are blurry :|

Thats not what I meant. I mean by duplicating the layer it makes it more solid and thus bright. It works well for my type of fractals.

Changing the rendering settings and changing the options can make it bright and solid like too like this: my most detailed fractal without duplicating or editing in Paint.NET
