Hi All, i just want to inform you, user Jesse has contacted me, he is doing well but he had to inform me that the development of mandelbulb3d has officially sopped by now.

A wonderful program which got a whole lot of attention and produced an enormous amount of pictures and animations, it is still quite useable and with the large
amount of public available formulas it will produce interesting results for quite a long time!

the only alternative to mandelbulb3d is the newly developed "MandelbulberV2.0"

Mixed emotions...

Glad Jesse is OK, but sad MB3D is going to stagnate.

Still, we all have lives, and I suppose this project simply does not fit into his anymore.

It was nice of him to at least let us know.

Best of luck in the future, Jesse!

While I have no idea what Jesse's reasons or condition is it is sad to hear this. On the bright side he has created a program which has elevated fractals and art, and I wish him well and good health. Mandelbulb 3d is an insdispensible tool, and a vehicle which has allowed so many to enjoy the fractal universe. Best Wishes to him

INFORMATION:

as jesse said, EVERYONE interested in the sourcecode ( a delphi sourcecode) might obtain a copy of it, he just does not want to share it publicly, so perhaps if someone is dedicated enough, grab the source and continue development! ( let me know i will take care of contact)

Hi there everyone!

I just joined Fractal Forums to say that I find it sad that Jesse - the creator of Mandelbulb 3D - has stopped working on this project.
I myself know how maintaining multiple projects and combining it with personal life and studies/career can be hard.
I guess I just wanted to say that I wish people like Jesse would get appreciated, not only by the fans of their fun little apps and programs and only on these forums, but also by others. I wish I could do something to help the further development of Mandelbulb or any other project of the creator of the software and the team behind it.

The news was probably published here right at the same moment when a new version of the main render was done for an art piece of mine. I┤ve been playing with Mandelbulb 3D just for a couple of months but already fell in love with it from the very first calculations. I will be documenting my process of the project and want to give credit to the original author of this amazing piece of software.

For anyone interested in my current project (or other computer techy and arty projects) find me on social networks under the name Disati (in case I forget to share it here). - sorry for spamming smiley

Maybe opening Source Codes wount'be a bad idea? Alredy Jesse agreed, sory, didn't read throught.
Realy Jesse had done ASTONISHING WORK. Maybe even opened new era in design. Realy without such ease and possibilities of M3D there would be very few of the 3D stuff.

Sadly I suspected as much some time ago.

If you read this Jesse you have my eternal admiration for creating something that has brought joy into the lives of countless people and consumed many nights lost in wonder at the beauty of mathematics. Wishing you the best and hope to see you around here again some day.
