An amazingIFS guideA little guide on how to use amazingIFS formula on Mandelbulb 3D.An amazingIFS guide by batjorge
Here is a simple procedure on how to obtain these caracteristic “kleinian” shapes or however they are named with a simple heightmap. This mini tutorial can be done with any other dIFS shapes tough, like SphereIFS, etc.
I've used for this example a very simple grayscale map, filled with neutral grey (RGB 192)
If you don't want to make it or can't, you can download it here: http://sta.sh/0fu5qld142i
Don't forget to add the map to the working folder you have for Mandelbulb 3D!
I've lowered the max. Iterations to 25 in the formula window to speed things a bit up but you can change it later if you prefer to do so.
Put in the first slot HeightMapIFS and type 199 in the nr field:
Add amazingIFS to the second slot.Just set all rotation X, Y and Z from default 5 to 0, and change Fold X, Y and Z values to 1.
Leave everything e
Ok. For now let's start with the very beginning.|
I became addicted in fractals --- ages ago.
Probably in the early 1990s if not earlier.
Of course at that ancient times the computers did have certain limitations.
The first pictures needed a day or so for e.g. 80x60 pixels of 2 colors. Fast-escaping formulas of course.
I left the path, and came back - again and again.
At the first years it has been more interesting to manipulate formulas than to create art.
So the maximum what could result were pictures like my current ID (which is of course a manipulation).
But finally I started tough to try to bring more quality in the pictures.
So I think I should take the consequence, and go public.
No fear - I will not upload more pics from the middle ages .
It just may happen that I will not be able to refrain some pics from the UF era, or some simple but unusual shapes: It seams that there are still some lovers of minimal art.
I hope I will not confuse you too much with wandering through the decades. However it may happen that there will not alwas be the newest artwork in my uploads.
I don't know whether I'm an artist - please decide for yourselves. Finally there is of course the quite hope that there are a few people who like one or another of the pics.
