I'm having some trouble getting the hang of animating in Mandelbulb3D.  How do I get smooth transitions from one keyframe to another?  Whatever I do with the animator settings, I seem to get 5-6 frames alike, then an abrupt transition, then 5-6 more frames alike, etc.  Here's a screenshot of my settings. 



Thanks.

This is because you are using the Integer version of the Mandelbulb. Use the Real instead.


these ones were done in UF:

Such beautiful fluidity!  I like your musical choices as well.

I think I got the problem worked out.  Thanks for the help, brother.

Hi bib --

Could you elaborate with regard to Mandelbulb3D?  Using Real instead of Integer?

Many thanks,
Russ

If you want to make an animation where the power of the Mandelbulb increases, if use the Integer version, then you have a discrete evolution with jumps from integer to integer : 1, 2, 3, etc...Whereas if you use the Real version, then its a continuous evolution, as in my animations above. I guess the reason for the Integer version to exist is that is calculates more quickly because the trigonometric functions have polynomial equivalents.

Thanks bib, I'm going to have to think about this for awhile.  embarrass

Sure.  If you look at the pic I posted, at the far right you can see the edge of the Formulas window.  There, under the word "Intern" it's set to "Integer".  Re-set it to "Real" using the pulldown menu.

Man, if I were any thicker, I'd be a brick. Thanks, Rev (and bib).

Obviously my explanations were not clear enough. I should have written:

In the formula window, in the Intern dropdown, select "Real Power, Sine".

I was just going to ask!  But now it's clear thanks bib!  Just lurking on this thread. embarrass
