Fractal Art: How We Grew Up

Fri Aug 8, 2014, 8:33 AM by tatasz:icontatasz:


Just a little story of how the fractal art galleries and, of course, all the awesome artists grew up :hug:.
I couldn´t include all works that deserved to be here, since it would require quite a big number of posts :hug: Hope you fractal artists will help to complete it, by writing your own 10 years story feature :la:

Our Mission

Official group of the #Aposhack chat!

Just hit join to become a member, approval is automatic!

We've set up 4 folders for submissions to start, Apo, UF, Mandelbulb, and FE. If there is another fractal program you'd like to share parameters for, just note us and we'll set up a folder for it! There is also a tutorials folder, feel free to submit tutorials for any program there!

Please note - this group is about sharing, so submissions need to include parameters (unless it's a tutorial)!

If you use anyone elses parameters, please be nice and link back to the original :D

And last rule...have fun!

Our Mission
1. The purpose of this group is to promote fractal artistry, and to share knowledge and techniques with like -minded members of DA who elect to participate and honor the spirit of this group.

2. Please be respectful of the art and the artist. Always.
Many of us have our heart and soul exposed in our art, and in this group we encourage and help each other regardless of experience level. The learning curve can be steep at times, and we have all been beginners at various stages throughout our journey. This is a place where the vulnerability of all artists is protected, and we trust that we can speak our minds openly and safely with the other members.

3. Innovative thinking is encouraged. Collaboration is welcome. Fellowship and social interaction are part of the fun. There is freedom of expression to share ideas and offer opinions. Given the virtual nature of the group, members from around the world gather. There are many cultures represented and none of is an expert about the morals or familiarities of all of them. So please be considerate. Be an Ambassador of your art to others.

4. If you are offensive, you may be warned or banned. It can be tempting to be critical or to respond with a clever "zinger, "but hurt feelings can result, and are not in keeping with the purpose of this group. If in doubt, say something fair and honest, but with kindness.

Please avoid any comments that are threatening, abusive, racist, demeaning, controversial, political, religious, of an adult nature or otherwise not appropriate for children.

all submissions to any of the folders will contain parameters...CAUTION: if you do not wish your parameters to be tweaked, taken apart,and mangled occasionally..if you submit to this gallery please know it is a fact that you might not like what is done with your parameters...if you use parameters please mention the original artist in your comments....

Hi All -
Over at the Pongorama group - we have an open invitation for any interested Apo artist to join a Pong Chain.
In this style of pong - parameters are received, tweaked and passed to the next artist in the chain. 
If the idea appeals to you, please see the details in this Journal: Invite To Chain Pongs: UF - Apo - MB3D

Thanks & Regards - Dave

Hi , I am having a bit of a problem finding plugins for my Apop 7X 64 bit Ver 15D. The plugins that work with this have the 64dll or 86dll. The ones with just dll don't work. I take it they work with the 32 bit versions. Major problem there I seem to have lost this version and no amount of trying to reinstall it works, just crashes . So can anyone help point me in the right direction with a 32 bit version or  plugins for my 64 bit version. Thanks in advance. Christina I am a dummy! 
tatasz Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2014
I think Xyrus-02 released some 64bit plugins a while ago.

As for apo, download 7x15A or 7x15B from the apo versions. They are not as buggy as following versions.

If this is not the right place, feel free to remove it, but before this please let me know where I can ask for help for a newbie? My problem is as follows:

Some years ago I've participated in an Apo course, have saved the course tutorial in pdf format, and maybe this had given mistakes, anyway Apo 7X could not read the flames now, there is an error message: " invalid format" and "list index out of bounds (5)". In Apo 2.09 it's the same, but an additional message occurs:"Not enough coefficients...crash?" Here is an example:

<flame name="Dec080522-62" version="Apophysis 2.07 beta" size="200 200"
center="-0.553654743390358 1.29393468118196" scale="50" oversample="2"
filter="1" quality="10" background="0 0 0" brightness="8" gamma="2" ><xform
weight="5" color="1" symmetry="0.99" linear="1" coefs="0.996037 0.088942 -0.088942 0.996037 0.171967 0.037932" /> <xform weight="0.5" color="0" polar="1"
coefs="0.284832 0.840791 -0.634093 -0.857469 1.642189 0.252235" /> <xform
weight="0.5" color="0" linear="1" spherical="0.493" swirl="0.084" coefs="10 -0.889127 0.329669 1.846043 1.76536" /><palette count="256" format="RGB">
</palette> </flame>

It would be great if anyone could help me to make the flames working because the tutorials are important for me to learn the basics. Thank you and regards

tatasz Featured By Owner Nov 2, 2014
I suggest you try using some more recent tutorials, since apophysis changed big time from 2.07. There are many new styles, and many things that worked for old versions do not work anymore.

A lot of tutorials:…

Or drop at this chat:…

At first: Thank you; I no longer believed that anyone would anwser me. I'm aware what you said, but what do you think: It's hopeless to find the error in this flame? I thought as yet that a profi could see this in five minutes; isn't it? Otherwise I have to learn from the tuts here in Aposhack; this is right. Regards Coffein
tatasz Featured By Owner Nov 3, 2014
Its not error i think, its just a different format. I can try poking some old users, but not sure if anyone remembers =S
When i started fractaling 7 years ago, people were already using 2.09, and not 2.07, and havent opened even 2.09 for several years.
I dont think there is any error, maybe just some very old format.

Anyways, learning from newer tutorials is better, because you will not have those compatibility issues with pretty much every example and there are tons of new fancy techniques around ^^
