We absolutely love this image...and would like very much to use it as a part of our album cover...the release is limited to 200 units and will be a double vinyl...very collectable!!...what would you like in return?...
Hi The lecture went well and I have another in San Fran in March 1st on Transhumanism and Psychedelics. Thanks for letting me use this image in the slides. Ray Kurzweil (Google) KurzweilAI.net wants to publish a story on my talk in San Fran. Would you be interested in having this image published on their site? If so should I give them the link to this page or another link?
It's fantastic with tons of detail I have the same problem in getting my fractals to look solid and with brilliant coloration. I've tried some suggestions and achieved some better results, but I wondered, and I have tried your tutorials, is there a tutorial on basic post processing workflow as well as some basics on achieving good coloration? I've tried adjusting weights, colors, saturating my gradients and I still seem to get "dead spots". Is this typical and does it take a certain method of post processing to get something like this?
My original params are stored on another computer which is dead at the moment (hard drive is not compatible with this PC) so I recreated it more or less. Grab it here ---> [link] <---- Download the .zip and extract the .flame
Perhaps check out my tut for some basics [link] (apo 3D, not 3d versions) Getting apo fractals to appear solid requires a bit of luck and voodo, but using bright and/or heavily saturated gradients and adjusting the weights of the transforms as well as adjusting the overall brightness (ADJUST/RENDERING) seems to help me out a lot. Also, be sure when making your final render to use a high quality setting (I seldom use less than 4000) for the best fill.
Thanks. I've tried your tutorial with varying results (to be fair, I tried it early on in the class before I knew a lot about how APO works) but I'll give it another shot. I keep having difficulty getting the program to recreate results. It seems like every time I try something, it comes out differently. The gradients frustrate me, too. UF is so color friendly, I've been spoiled.
