How do you do things like this? I have Apophysis 2.02, and I never get anything so ornate. D:

:)...i couldn't tell you specifically cz i'm not a math wizard nor am i an apo expert :bucktooth:
For me , fractals are like panning for gold. ...lol... all i can say is you aren't panning in the right river.

When you open apo and it first renders it's hundred batch...go thru them and find the most ornate ones and then run batch script files on a particular one.( usually i use spiral batch mutation )
And then go through them again and if the parameters set on the script were right and you got lucky then some of the next hundred will look more involved.
Single out one of them and keep open your mutation window ....then as you tug on triangles in the editor and see the results...if you don't like it just UNDO ( an apo users best friend :) )

But before you undo...look at the mutation window thumbs( my slider is usually set around 0.21 ) and if any of the thumbs look kool click on them to check them out....if one looks worth pursuing...then undo a second and save the parameters on the previous one and then reclick the new thumb you like and start tuggin' on triangles again.
That's the growth process. Leap frogging from one find to the next and playing with it till something "happens" ..lol

once something is developing and you think you found gold...save the parameters and start fiddling deeper....often zooming in a bit and focusing on just a portion of the frac yields more interesting end results.
( the more you zoom in the longer it will take to render...)

Sometimes just making subtle adjustments to things like rotation or frequency will drastically change the image.

Fiddle with gamma and brightness for final teaks. Playing with blur and gamma will determine how cloudy or smokey something looks or the opposite, how clear and defined and crisp edges look.


:shrug:...you'll get the hang of it if you devote yourself to experimentation....it's like anything else... if you play hard enough you will find good results.

Good luck!

Beautiful .. there are some very cool almost feathery effects taking place as well ... not that you necessarily want my suggestions, but building an angel w/ wings made of some of this could be a cool thing to try!!

Heh ...thanks hero!...
Truth is i'm just lucky :)
There are people that could recreate this ruffly just by looking at it and by understanding the math behind it. I couldnt do that...
My approach is more like a kaleidoscope. I keep turning and tweaking till it makes something prettier and more interesting in depth.

I riffled through your gallery and that looks just like i did when i started :)...All you have to do is keep at it and learn which sliders control what overall effect you like and then keep tweaking the fracs with limited goals in mind.
Sooner or later you'll blossom if you have perseverance :) ... It's no different than becoming good on the bass ;)

lol, Thanks for the kind words, and you're right. I'm just starting to explore apophysis. I have yet to really get good but with time I hope I can eventually make masterpeices like this.

heh, I had forgotten that I put that I played bass on my profile...

:) Thank you !
......in a FREE fractal flame generator called Apophysis . You can download it here and try it ! --------> [link]

If you have never worked with fractals at all ..it may seem a little daunting at first....but then ...what software doesnt ?...lol
It's pretty easy once you get the hang of it. There are tutorial links there as well...and so many people here use it it's impossible NOT to find the help you need.

Since it is sorta-open source...others have taken the proggy even further with higher versions available here on DA somewhere...(i never remember where :shrug: )

If you do try it and get stuck... while far from an expert, ask me and i may be able to help get over any ruff starting points ....
