Hi Guys

Thought I'd join the Animated GIF bandwagon with one of my own fractint formulas:


Code:
simon0046-C {
  ;p1 = graininess - try 10000,100000 or 100,10
  z = p = pixel
  f = p1
  if (p1==(0,0))
    f = (1,1) ;Set if left blank
  endif
  b = trunc(f*p)/f
  if (b==(0,0))
    z = p
  else
    z = b
  endif:
  z = z * z + p
  |z| > 0
}

And varying the p1 from 100,0 to 100,100 in steps of 10 gives the following images which I have built together with Paint Shop Pro 5's Animation Studio (I know, pretty basic but does everything I wish to have in an image editor).



Not bad for a beginner's attempt (haven't a clue what it does but it appears to be a standard mandelbrot with transformations).

Oooh!  I missed that before   afro

Nifty.

If you are concerned, the gif could be a 4th category - restricted to banners.  Then the prize could be prominent display in the rotation or something.

Nice bit of weirdness there!

Speaking of weirdness ...



How did I do that?

I'm glad you asked :

With apologies to Doctor Seuss:

When your Height Map
Is your Light Map
In Mandelbulb 3D

And you drink lambic
A bit too quick
The results can be silly

And if your picture
Causes stricture
In the Image Gallery

When words get terse
Say "It could be worse"
"Just take a look and see!"




OK, I confess.  I tried this with Lissa's face, but the height map looked ...  unflattering.  The eye-only one worked, so I just had to keep trying variations.  That's the end result.  The only other body part that worked was ...  Ummmmm...  Well...  Nevermind.   bubble gum

would be no better use flash (.swf) for animation ?
in case of large image (as from bib example) the file size would be much smaller but quality higher

swf quality is actually much lower in my experience.  The forum should have swf disabled for security reasons anyhow.  It's possible to be extremely malicious with embedded swf files!
