Iterating

Detailed information about the processing that happens during the iteration phase of the algorithm.

Xforms

Xforms have the most effect over the look of the final output image. Discussing every possible technique for using them is beyond the scope of this project. For such information, you should follow the numerous Apophysis tutorials that are available onĀ Deviant ArtĀ and elsewhere. This article is limited to some basic performance considerations when using xforms. […]

Fusing

At the beginning of each sub batch, a number of iterations are done which are not actually plotted to the histogram. This is known as fusing and helps the image converge more and get rid of extraneous points. Similar to sub batch, this field is also saved to the Xml file, but rarely makes much […]

Sub batches

Fractal flames are created by performing many iterations, the number of which is based on the quality, zoom and dimensions of the image. The first input point used to start the iteration process is random, then all subsequent iterations use the output of the last iteration as their input. This sequence does not continue uninterrupted […]
