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.

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!

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: 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 :(

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 :(
