Re: Mandelbox trip


That is geogeous.

I want the software that generates it.

Best fractal I've seen in ages.

Re: Mandelbox trip


As I watched the video (Data's right... MUCH cooler in full screen mode!), several thoughts hit me at different times:

1.) I wonder if the universe, with all of it's myriad stars, nebulae, galaxies and galaxy clusters, is laid out in some sort of 3D fractal lattice. String theory just popped into my mind, presumably just to mess with my psyche.

2.) At several points in the video, I more than half expected the camera to zoom in on a random bit of structure, and treating us to a view of some minuscule D&D/Final Fantasy characters, battling it out with some outrageously huge/tiny monster.

3.) Just as I was thinking about the fantasy adventurers (around 1:53), here came, seemingly leaping out of the very structure of the object, a huge face that was reminiscent of the very monster I had envisioned but a brief moment before, which lead me to think, "I REALLY need to lay off the mind altering drugs!" Cheesy

Re: Mandelbox trip


1) Yes, the universe is fractal. It's generally laid out in a bubble latice laid over a hyperbolic parabaloid (sadle shape).

2) That's just your psyche, deal with it.

3) I see a face in the center, slightly to the right at 1:53. This is pareidolia and human brains are hard wired for it. Many people see it without the use of drugs, so keep taking them  thumbsup

This is a cool piece of software. Thank you Freddy.

I just rendering the examples and it's using all my 4 cores to max for several mins for 1 pic.  Grin

Re: Mandelbox trip


Wow, Really Snowy? Which example did you render that took so long? So far, every image I've rendered has taken under a minute. Of course, I've not yet figured out how everything works, so most of what I've rendered has been fairly simple, and I haven't tried all of the examples yet. I'm still finding some amazing images, though. Smiley

Re: Mandelbox trip


Multi core support, impressive, does it use the GPU as well? That would be perfection Tongue

Re: Mandelbox trip


The program is utterly amazing, but it has more settings than there are fleas at the dog pound. It's a bit to take in, all at once. Smiley

Re: Mandelbox trip


As soon as I can wring some coherence from the animation, I certainly will. Right now what I've got is a series of "jumps" to different locations, and it looks bad (as an animation... the individual images look fine). Smiley

Re: Mandelbox trip


The 'FractalCubistCheese' pic I've posted took about 3-4 mins.

Once you've found one you like, try upping the res in the 'Image' tab.

I take off the 'depth of field' setting in the 'Post Effects' tab most of the time.

Not tried any animation yet.

Re: Mandelbox trip


I'm somewhat contending with some C2D problems with the app right now that I haven't got sorted out quite yet, so I'm not having a lot of luck making anything to show, but have a look at this thread over at VHF. Mikmoth is doing some stellar things with the program! Smiley

(I'm seriously jealous!)
