... Or how to explore difficult formulas in Mandelbulb3D.
There are many formulas on Mandelbulb3D which are only rarely used.
In past I have often simply tried around, specifically such formulas which have been -so far I had seen- rarely discussed on dA or FractalForums.com.
If I now search on dA fractal entries for instance for 'Quadrat3D', or 'TalisTpx' then >50% of the resulting images are created by me, although I'm posting images actively for only about one year until now.
While preparing my parameter set for Quadrat3D formula I was wondering why, and have thought about how I could share some of my experiences.
I agree with every one of you that all the AmazingXYZ formulas do result in really amazing pictures not far from a aesthetic shock.
Nevertheless - there are many more formulas available in M3D, thanks to both Jesse, and Luca a.k.a. dark-beam.
You can find a (although incomplete) list of rarely used formulas within a journal entry by dark-beam
Finally I decided to start some tutorial which gives you some (quite simple) entries to the world of Quadrat3D, TalisTpx & Co.
I'm open for any critiques and improvement suggestions!
The tutorial(s) should be a starting point for a discussion.
So the first one is here
As I'm still a bit learning about the possibilities of dA finally the following ressources are available:
