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.

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
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
Its great that its working, and don't worry you'll get good pretty quick if you just keep on practicing Practice makes perfect when it comes to Apophysis
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.
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
Thank you for this. I believe this will help this frustrated noob!
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!
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.
I will keep on trying, and let you know how I get along.
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
I tried your tips, and they work partly. I will keep on trying till it works.. cannot be that a software program gets the better of me...
I will be in touch.
Have a nice day!
Enjoy your day!
As for the work, it doesn't matter to me how close it is to the original. Though your fractal is quite different
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".
