Apophysis
Being a lover of Escher I had to try my hand at one of these impossible triangle designs.
The new versions of Apo are really awesome. Many thanks to those who are working on that.

WoW. that is cool. I immediately thought of M. C. Escher at the moment i noticed the visual contradiction. So COOL!!! Instant fav

I thought immediately of Escher in some of your other works but THIS is stupendous! I love how you made the gold line variable, as if a light source was playing along it. If I knew knew how to quilt or embroider, I'd ask you if I could make it using metallic threads as well as traditional thread/cloth. :+fav:

It's like an enameled piece inlaid with gold wires. Instant fave.

Amazing :jawdrop: I've done similar in ChaosPro, but not with this richness of colouring that Apo allows :D

I'm flabergasted! This is just such an amazing fractal. I'm particularly impressed by the metallic gold outlines.

This is totally awesome. I'm trying to recreate something similar, but I can't really figure out how to obtain that cool 3D effect...

this is incredible.. I just can't see how this can be done with apo, as a single flame.. I'm speechless.. truly impressive :wow:

Lots of transforms. Keeping track of them all is the hardest part. This one has around 40 to 50 transforms and trying to remember all of them is hard enough but if you delete one then all subsequent transforms change colors and numbers as you well know. Very frustrating!!!!:)
Apo needs a better way to organize them.

whoa.. now I see why I can't get such amazing geometrical compositions.. I never go over 10-15 transforms :D

Thanks, I appreciate that!

The new post transform feature is working really well. If I could make one obsevation, It would be great if scrolling of coordinate numbers were possible. Maybe it's there already but I have't noticed how.

And of coarse, if it were possible to apply variations to the post transforms like on the final transform. That would be a total trip of warped fractal possibilities.

Awesome work on the program and your fractals!!!!!!!!!!!!

you're right, that's how I wanted to do "post"-transforms, and some day I'm going to make it... but it won't be compatible with flam3, or something like that :)

Mobilelectro Featured By Owner Jan 12, 2007
Maybe Flam3 will have to play catch up on that one. I can't wait till you have the time to add that feature.

I have to ask, how in the world?
I just can't figure it out!

AND!

This is just incredibly amazing!
I love the gold and the colors, and of course, the overall piece is astounding!
Great work!

It's done with the new post transforms which allow you place elements with more precision than before.
Joel Faber had a move feature on one of his earlier hacked versions that he discontinued when it was decided to create the post transforms feature. It took a while for that to happen but now it's there on Apo2.05 b2 which allows for rotation and skewing also. My personal belief is that the Post transforms need to evolve even more so that you can also modify them with all the variations or (equations) available on the main transform triangle more like the final transform but for each separate individual transform.

If I could hire a master programmer I would create a variation plug in that allowed for the morphing of shapes like liquify in Photo shop or Squizz. Then you could take a square shape for instance like you get from the sinusoidal variation and reshape it manually in a separate window.
Another idea I had was to have a plug in that worked like a vector drawing program and introduce that into the fractal thus making the program work like a recursive drawing tool.

Hope that answers your question even though I went off on a tangent.

interesting ideas ;) i should check the apo source sometime for the post-transforms, not entirely sure how that works.

I actually knew about both the move variation and the post transforms.
I use them both quite frequently.
However, I'm not quite sure how they fit into this.
I'm sure I'll get it someday.
Thanks for your informative reply, however.
