Greetings to all!
I just wanted to introduce the new sub flame feature of JWildfire as I feel that this may be a general innovation on fractal flames.
The feature allows it to use a flame as variation inside any transform of another fractal flame. This way it is very easy to compose fractals without messing around with relative weights (or Photoshop ;-)). This also works with pseudo 3D flames and final transforms. And of course it can be nested :-) The only thing which does not work is opacity.
Here are some examples I created using the new "sub_flames" variation:
(all images can be found also in a higher resolution at the project's site
I'm looking forward to any comments, hints or images :-)
