Not Worth Waiting To ShareIt's time to do another feature, regardless of how recently the last one has been done! I can't sit on so much beauty and not share it! See how many tries it takes you to find the big exception to my "generally under 200 faves" rule. ;-D

MandelBulb3D DEcombinate Mix Mode TutorialHello everyone! Glad to see you all around! I've been testing new possibilities in Mandelbulb3D and I found easy and clever way, how to save your render time to make fabulous and outstanding pieces. Let me explain you what I'm talking about here!
As the title says, there's a "Mix" mode in DEcombinate function. It remained unused for quite a time. It's time to make revolution.
First of all, let's start with something basic, like bulbs! I will explain each step and every single thing to make you understand the technique! Ok, Let's go.
I suppose you already opened your Mandelbulb. And now:
1. In first formula slot place _AmazingBox formula, and keep it unchanged for now.
2. In second slot, place boardIFS formula, and keep it unchanged as well. (Note: At Step 2 and 3 DO NOT OPEN Navi yet)
3. Now what we exactly need to do is turn DEcombinate on and choose Mix mode!
Chaotica basicsFractal Art
You have probably seen fractal artists mention Chaotica quite a few times - many people use it either standalone or as a renderer for the works they create in other software.
If you fancy IFS fractals and want to try making some, Chaotica is definitely on the list of software you should try.
You can download it from the website: http://chaoticafractals.com/. There is a free version (with some resolution restrictions), so new users can try it out.
So... Grab it, run the installer or unzip the archive and hit the blue flower icon
This will be the first thing you see in Chaotica:
Just click one of those randoms to have something cool to start with. Or, if none appeals to you, close this window and hit the New Random Worlds button for more.
In the main window, you can set your render s
Xaos-Mandelbulb - Understanding 2D and 4D formulasOkay
Just sick and bored in my room, playing with Xaos and Mandelbulb3D settings I discovered the thing that can make work with 3D and 4D MB formula easier.... And all you need is Xaos fractal program...
First of all, I just open Mandelbulb3D and as first slot I put Makin4D p2a, looking like this:
It's nothing special, Only 3D version on Mandelbrot formula. but now, I run Xaos and starting with basic Mandelbrot 2D:
Now I activate quick regime Julia and I move my mouse pointer there:
And the follow result of julia is this:
And here we come to the next leve of managing 3D shape. When you wish to activate julia this window appears:
The first number indicates X coordinations and the second Y coordinates. so put these into Julia of MB3D like that:
Custom Height Maps For Mandelbulb3DMandelbulb3d has several ways to render 3d fractals. One of them, dIFS, has the ability to make use of height maps.
This tutorial focuses on creating custom height maps.
This is not news worthy - MB3D artists have long made use of this technique. Recently my friend Jorge - batjorge - has posted a tutorial on using dIFS with a height map - the HeightMapIFS and the amazingIFS formula. The tutorial is meant to easily generate the classic bulb shape and it achieves this admirably. The height map in Jorge's guide is a uniform, gray image. This results in a clean and texture-free bulb form. But what happens if a more complex height map is used?
This tutorial will walk you through creating a quality custom height map and applying it in a MB3D dIFS render.
This image - New Heights - uses a custom height map.
MB3D Plants/Grass GuideHello everyone! Welcome to my another tutorial! First off, the tutorial is based off with agreement of original artist. So let's begin.
1. Open mandelbulb3D and fill first slot with "CommaIFS" and 2nd with "amazingIFS" and set 2 iterations on amazingIFS only
2. Set the Max Interations on 10-30 what will you prefer after all following setting will be done.
3. Now set similar values to CommaIFS variables: (be very gentle)
R1 = from -3.7 to -4
Scale = 0.8 - 1
Z Add = 0.01 - 0.1
Y Add = 0.6 - 0.8
X Add = 0 (keep 0)
R2 = from -0.5 to -1
Scale + Add = 1
R3 = 1.5 - 2
R Sphere = 0 - 0.1
Flip X-Z = 0 (keep 0)
Flip Y-Z = 0 (keep 0)
Signs = 1/3 (feel free to experiment)
Final TIP: For reaching the best effect and experience try mix with different dIFS formulas and DE-Combinating with formulas like Amazing Surf, Amazing Box, TetraVS etc. to make nature-feeling fractal! (As I specified, I "stolen" the idea and that presentation give best preview! )
For sure, here's my
Amazing Box Spheres TutorialHello people! Nice to meet you there! Hope you'll enjoy!
I got truly inspired by :iconbatjorge:'s Mechanical spheres and also by :icontheli-at: , then tried on my own, and liek why not? They're awesome! Who wouldn't like them?
Open Mandelbulb3D! (So exciting already ) and follow my steps!
1. As first formula pick _Fold45single and leave it unchanged (you can try experiment after all things done then)
2. 2nd formula MUST be Amazing Box and input these values:
Min R: 0.0
Iterations: 20 - 35
Still not anything magical!
3. The third formula wll affect the shapes and varies of these spheres! You can use whatever you want, experiment, but there for inspiration i use koch_cube and left it unchanged for now.
4. next formulas is going to be again _AmazingBoxSSE2 (or Ama
