I was just wondering if anyone had tried the formula for the Amazing fractal with different orders of transformations. Right now it goes: Fold->Invert->Scale->Add. By rearranging these there would be 24 different options. Most of these produce the same results by a coordinate transform or by changing variables like scale, xfold/yfold/zfold, fixedRadius, and minRadius. But something like Invert->Fold->Scale->Add should produce something different. Has anyone tried this?

Someday, man will understand primary theory; how every aspect of our universe has come about. Then we will describe all of physics, build a complete understanding of genetic engineering, catalog all planets, and find intelligent life. And then we'll just puzzle over fractals for eternity.

Interesting. I've been looking at the Mandelbox over the past couple of days (more to come soon), and it would seem to suffer classification overload! Still, more to explore then... smiley

I tried your idea (all use 10 iterations and scale=2). Click for full size:

Am working on a more generalised "location controlled" formula - I actually like to call these "Location Restricted IFS" - the method essentially goes back to Barnsley's location-conditional based escape-time formulas as included in Fractint.
