Hi all, using different angles to those normally used:

"On the Reef"



If no picture above then look here:

Nice pic! - good colouring again. Do you know how similar this is to Rudy Rucker's formula? Here's an example pic I made a while back - some features seem similar:

This fog effect looks very good. What formula did you used? This is not standard Mandelbulb - shapes are very interesting  huh?

P.S. David, you should update sign on your images. Now is year 2010  cheesy

I used the latest incarnation of my wip 3D formula for UF which I'm hoping to make available later this evening.
bib has been using a slightly earlier version since which I've further optimised and added some extra features.
Tonight I'll be adding the ability to colour using *any* UF outside colouring in UF5 - by simply performing the iteration for the surface pixels one extra time through UF's normal loop process - of course I'll have to add options as to how your 3D or 4D value is converted to a complex #z value to be passed to the colouring.

Oooops - I forgot to change the signature text in the PSP text tool wink

Yeah, it's similar in some of the details but the bulbs overall don't get split the way they do with Rudy's formula using this method.

What formula did you used?

Here's the unoptimised non-trig UF code without analytical DE (non-trig as the trig code is left to the compiler):

                zjk = imag(zri) + flip(zj)
                r = cabs(zri)
                ph = cabs(zjk)
                if r>0.0
                  zri = (zri/r)^@mpwr ; cos sin
                else
                  zri = (1,0)
                endif
                if ph>0.0
                  zjk = (zjk/ph)^@mpwr ; cos sin
                else
                  zjk = (1,0)
                endif
                zj = imag(zjk)
                zri = real(zri) + flip(imag(zri)*real(zjk))
                x1 = sqrt(|zri| + sqr(zj))
                magn = magn^@mpwr
                if x1==0.0
                  zri = magn + cri
                  zj = cj
                else
                  magn = magn/x1
                  zri = magn*zri + cri
                  zj = magn*zj + cj
                endif
                magn = sqrt(|zri| + sqr(zj))

You may be wondering what that last bit with x1 is for, when recombining the sines/cosines using this method then the result does not have a fixed unit magnitude and rendering without the last "fix" produces a fractal that has spikes everywhere (essentially asymptotes) - it's interesting but I decided to see what happened if the combined sine/cosine result was renormalised before multiplication by the new magnitude.

Edit: If you want a name for the formula, I call it "Normalised simultaeneous rotation about z and x" or "Norm.Sim.Rot.ZX" smiley
