Exploring Apophysis 3D by TsukinoHikari20 Exploring Apophysis 3D by TsukinoHikari20
Edit: OMG, A DD :wow: Thank you Ojad0 and Hanratty-Stock :)

Edit 2: If you are using 7x, instead of inputting the locations manually, just base the locations of the transforms on the screenshots. Something about the way the program recognizes locations changed with this new one.

I promise I'll reply to all the fav's and comments later tonight I don't want to forget anyone :)

Oh, and I don't know who hit print request, but I won't make this image available for it. I'll make the actual fractal which is titled Storm (same image) available for it instead. Thank you for the interest :)

The download includes a 75 page tutorial on how to make four different fractals. Its really detailed and I've spent the past two weeks writing it.

Its mostly pictures though so don't worry about a long reading.

I really hope you guys enjoy this, I've never put this much work into anything.

The download also includes a pack of 100 gradients, and a .flame file of the contents of this tutorial.

For quick navigation of the tutorial I have included a contents page, simply click on the listing of the area you wish to view. The .pdf will automatically take you to the area.

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-01-16
ojad0 sent me a lovely note sayingExploring Apophysis 3D by ~TsukinoHikari20 I was lucky enough to beta test this, and I have made some amazing fractals with this this enormous (75 pages) tutorial will help anyone at any level, from just downloading apophysis, to a user like michael or joel faber, (who designed apophysis 2.08). this goes into great depth explaining what each and every single little step does. Anyone who reads this tutorial will gain a huge understanding on the effects of XAOS, weight, variable, variations, transformations, and colors. The tutorials is very easy to understand, and has pictures to guide you through everything you might have trouble with. Once she has shown you how to make your fractal, she has included many pages on how she got her own fractals, and what you need to do to get them. Anyone who uses this tutorial will leave knowing a lot more about apophysis then they had before. I know i did, and i have been using apophysis for 7 moths! i have recommended this tutorial to everyone i know. I have even got some of my friends to join DA and start using apophysis just for this tutorial. Lastly, tsukinohikari20 includes not only a flam3 pack, with all her different fractal parameters, but she has included a gradient pack, with some amazing colors. the flam3 and gradient pack are almost worthy a DD by themselves. - I thought about condensing it - but it was a fantastic expression of love for a piece of work!

Your link didn't work, but I went to the group page on facebook.  I'm assuming you're Rosie?  If so, you're doing pretty good :) 

I really like the blueish purplish one that has a bit of 3D to it and a pretty swirl in the middle.  Its really nice :)  (Its the one that was posted about 16 or so hours ago, I'm not sure how to link to what I'm talking about :P

Hi Yes I'm Rosie. Sorry about the link - not good with them! Glad you like my work. I know the fractal you mean - everyone likes that one!. I like messing with julian etc! I know what you mean about getting addicted to fractals! Rosie x

I'm not surprised that everyone likes that one :)  It looks like a fractal Colosseum :)  I'm trying to limit my fractaling down to a bare minimum since my laptop is sorta crappy and I'm already pressed for time :P  I can't risk getting addicted again, it'd end up killing this laptop probably :P

You're welcome :) 

It may not work perfectly, its over five years old and the program has changed a lot over the years.  The coordinates tend not to work anymore, so if that occurs just eyeball the positions of the transforms in the screenshots instead :) 

I hope it works :)

I can't seem to get anything close to what you created! I'm using Aphophysis7X and saw the pointers you mentioned before in the comments but still I'm getting nowhere near anything similar, any insight that might help me? This is my outcome: imgur.com/mfroZtk I have no idea what I'm doing wrong.

Can you hit ctrl + c in the program and paste it into a note and send it to me?  This will allow me to see your parameters.  Also, can you load the flame file that came with with the tutorial and do the same for the fractal you're working on?  I have a 64 bit OS currently and it hates Apophysis with a fiery burning passion :(

NoodledipteeDoodle Featured By Owner Edited Jul 20, 2014  Student Interface Designer
I figured it out! I guess I shouldn't be following tutorials late at night, makes me misread things. Anyway thanks for the quick reply and willingness to help me out, great tutorial! Also which OS are you using because Apophysis works fine for me on W7 64bit.

Edit: Okay small update, it works on Apohpysis 2.08 3Dhack but it doesn't on Apophysis7X, even the flame from the tutorial pack doesn't come close to the original picture when using Apophysis7X.

Windows 8, or at least mine, hates it :( 

I can do basic stuff but I can't use most of my old flame files because the a good chunk of the plugins haven't been re-wrote for 64 bit.  A lot of my older work uses a lot of those programs that haven't been re-wrote :(

Hi, I am a newby to fractals (although I made a few in the past), and tried to follow along with your tutorial, which is very clear and easy to follow, but what I don't get is that I follow along and don't see the same flames you create, even after making the 2nd transform. This might have to do with the version: I am using 2.09 with the 3d hack. Can that differ so much? I have tried a few tuts and seem to end up with the same problem every time. Anyone has a thought on that?
Before diving into the program, I like to follow some tuts to understand how things are created, but it just doesn't seem to work.
Any help is highly appreciated!

Yes, it is THAT different.

Its very frustrating to a lot of us too.

Anyways, the issue is with the locations. Instead of entering in the coordinates I put down, try to move the transforms to where they appear in the screenshots in the tutorial.

It should work then. I'm sorry about this, but that's the only solution I know of.

The program changed about a year or two after I wrote this tutorial and I no longer have a clue where I left the original files. Which is why I haven't updated it.

Arwen1964 Featured By Owner May 28, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Thanks for your efforts. I have tried to change the transforms to look like the screenshots, but it is slightly off, which doesn't give a good result. From knowing what it should look like, I can learn to create my own :).
I will keep on trying, and let you know how I get along.

Okay, let's see if I can help with that.

Go to the triangle tab. You see where it has where you can enter in the degrees you can turn a transform?

We'll play with those so you won't have to do this manually.

Let's say you're looking at the first one covered in the tutorial.

Transform one stays in the same position.

Transform two you turn at a 45 degree angle counter clockwise.

By units I mean use the thing directly below where you can enter the degrees in.

Move it upwards exactly 0.23 units.

Move it right by exactly 0.2 units.

For transform three you turn it at a 135 degrees counter clockwise.

For transform four it gets a bit hairy, but its doable.

Turn it at a 45 degree angle counter clockwise.

Move it downards by 1.2 units.

That should work to your exact positions.

If it doesn't then the program has been updated again and I might scream a bit lol

Don't attempt to do it by manually dragging it, that won't work at all on this particular sort of fractal if you want exact results.

I highly suggest learning how to eye the grid and figure these things out since a bunch of older tutorials are now off due to how the program was updated.

Hope this helps :)

This has been really useful on giving me a basic understanding. I'm working on a derivative work right now -- still not completely clear on how much different a fractal needs to be to be "new" so if mine doesn't qualify when I upload it, let me know and I'll take it down again. Thanks so much for the awesome learning process!

Great tutorial.. City of the Fractals, impressive ! A candy to my eyes. Made my day.
It also changed the way I think about Apophysis. I wish I could create an animation using this fractal. Would be something like "The moving city of the fractals".
