Hello Fractalforums members and guests,

I have uploaded a small upgrade for ChaosPro onto my website at http://www.chaospro.de
You may download it from there.

It includes several improvements for Quaternions (in ChaosPro this fractal type is used to generate Mandelbulbs).
You might want to try out the new zoom mode which makes it much easier (although not perfect) to zoom into a mandelbulb.

See the following list of new things together with links to the online documentation of ChaosPro so you can check quickly whether you want to try it out:

* Depth of Field: Makes images look more natural: http://www.chaospro.de/documentation/html/fractaltypes/quaternions/parmview.htm#DepthOfField
* Fog: http://www.chaospro.de/documentation/html/fractaltypes/quaternions/parmlight.htm#FogPanel
* New Zoom Mode: http://www.chaospro.de/documentation/html/windows/fractal_quat.htm#ZoomMode
* Ambient Occlusion: http://www.chaospro.de/documentation/html/fractaltypes/quaternions/parmlight.htm#AmbientAO
* Inside View: http://www.chaospro.de/documentation/html/fractaltypes/quaternions/parmfrml.htm#InsideView
* Distance Estimation variables:
        http://www.chaospro.de/documentation/html/formulacompiler/languagereference/predefinedparameters/quaternion/estimateddistance.htm
        http://www.chaospro.de/documentation/html/formulacompiler/languagereference/predefinedparameters/quaternion/currentrayindex.htm
        http://www.chaospro.de/documentation/html/formulacompiler/languagereference/predefinedparameters/quaternion/hasbeenhit.htm
* Presets: http://www.chaospro.de/documentation/html/windows/presets.htm

For a complete list of what has been changed, see:

Best regards,
Martin

Thanks for the updates to this Wonderful program!

Quaternion Zoom improvements look like they will be very helpful  cheesy

Looking forward to giving this a test drive over the weekend...

Thanks for aiding in my addiction!  kiss  wink Can't wait to "play"

There is a new preset made for you: It loads an image (jpg or png) as a coloring formula so you can use that image as a layer and do other fancy stuff:
Create an Escapetime fractal. In the parameter window select the outside tab. Then choose the preset "Image Import". In order to change the image, just choose another image. You may apply a transformation in order to mirror, duplicate, distort, lens distort or do anything other with the image.

Kind regards,
Martin

Sadly Martin it's not working for me!  Must be doing something wrong.  Really like the idea of image as a coloring formula..  Anyone try this?

I too tried, but only got the image as a background.  Haven't figured out how to tile the image in Orbit Traps (is that the correct terminology?) for fanciful effects.

I'll have time to play more over the weekend...

To get an image as a background, just follow the directions above, ie:  "Create an Escapetime fractal. In the parameter window select the outside tab. Then choose the preset "Image Import". In order to change the image, just choose another image. You may apply a transformation in order to mirror, duplicate, distort, lens distort or do anything other with the image."

That part was no problem.

But I had no luck getting images to do things like you've seen before.  Like one of my favorites:



Each "slice" in that image is what I am calling an "Orbit Trap" and hoping it's the correct phrase!

With the new feature in Chaos Pro, I just get a tiled image with a Black Brot over the front.

I must be missing something...

Sounds like the wrong import feature.  Not the one in the menu!  The new one in the parameters tab!  (little folder icon)

Well, of course I'm not able to reproduce your Lissa, so I replaced Lissa with Jennifer Aniston.

Here is an example of what I've achieved by playing around a few minutes:



Such images are easy to obtain: You only need to play around with transformations. Here is the example parameter entry (Copy&Paste into ChaosPro, but you need to replace Jennifer with Lissa, of course!):

}


I just chose the tab "Mapping" and added a transformation. You may download/import the UltraFractal formulas. Those from Damien M. Jones are my favorites, so I chose dmj-NovaJulia from dmj.ctr.

As you can see, there are hundreds (thousands) of transformations when having downloaded them from the UF database. A wide field to play with...

But it depends on what you want to achieve.

Better (more fantastic) results could be obtained by writing a formula and coloring not by using the gradient, but by using a pixel from Lissa smiley

Kind regards,
Martin
