1)   How do you know which formula to use? Why should I use Amazing Box with _SinY ?
I have gotten some amazing images almost always from tweaking other people's parameters. I want to be able to chose the formulas myself. Is this just a matter a trial and error?
2)   Is there something in plain English (or other languages, I live in the US) that explains what tabs and stuff actually do? For instance: When you hover over the 3 tabs in Formulas a pop up says "Type of Hybrid" "Alternate: Formulas 1 to 6 Alternated"  What does that really mean as far as making an image? Is there something that explains in plain English what these 3 tabs do and why you should chose one over another?
This is just one example of the frustration I find in using this program.

I could go on and on, but this is enough for now.

1. It involves lots of trial and error, I have spent thousands of hours to find my favorite combos, after a while you get a feeling for how the different formulas can affect a scene...

2. Read the manual. A text-file included in the Mandelbulb 3D folder on your computer, it is in plain english...

Good luck!

There are some pretty good tutorials here on the forums that explains some, but not all off the features. http://www.fractalforums.com/tutorials/  smiley
