Fractly Speaking

Posted on April 18, 2008. Filed under: Uncategorized |

After using Photoshop for over three years I finally got tired of doing the same things to get a random fractal-like background. Credit for some of the frustration goes to
Seeing some of the work there I was crushed to note that my pseudo-complex designs just didn’t match up.
Nonetheless with 2GB of RAM and a 2.2GHz dual core beckoning it was time to call in the big guns. Thats where I came across Apophysis. It generates amazing fractals in real-time on the basis of the transformation you select. Yes I know the description is a bit vague, but given that even I am a noob as far as this software is concerned I hope most of you guys will tolerate it.
Any way I strongly suggest downloading one of the newer (post 2.05) beta versions as most of the tutorials I found work with these.
Also to get an idea of what you can do with Apophysis I have uploaded 3 of my latest creations.

Enjoy 🙂

My personal favorites lie in Julia Sets…
Though nice ones…do share the expressions u used, that would be more close to open source sharing.

I generally try to modify the the transformations by using the triangle visualizations
hence it is not very easy to remember what exactly I did back then
I think it turns out best when you make 2-3 random transformation, then think about what the image resembles and then try to enhance that effect

I do not know what u want????
