I know it i poss to wrap 2D fractals with images as demonstrated by this image of a mandelbrot made from tubs of smarties



but is there any way you could do the same thing with the mandelbulb/mandelbox fractals?

you could use 3D-models or voxel-data, rather than images and do the same to them.
Or use planes, pointing to the viewer, being distorted as usual and textured with 2D-images - that wouldn't look too great, though, I guess^^

Sure, that would be quite simple for something like the Mandelbulb. Not the Mandelbox, though... (Well, maybe not the coding so much, but the math certainly would be). If you wanted things to be at all visible... well, it would be hard. 3D object occlude one another, and so it might just look messy. What you could do is, is say, only take points that have gone around a number of times divisible by 2, and that bailed out on an iteration that was divisible by 4. These would be easy counters to keep, and they would space things out a lot more.

Someday, man will understand primary theory; how every aspect of our universe has come about. Then we will describe all of physics, build a complete understanding of genetic engineering, catalog all planets, and find intelligent life. And then we'll just puzzle over fractals for eternity.

I'd enjoy seeing the results of that!

Mapping 2D Images to Fractals gets me in trouble sometimes...




Imagine the trouble I could get into with 3D!!

Is that a Mobius transform?

I did it in Mutatorkammer a couple years ago.  I'd have to look at the formula to be certain.  I must have the file saved someplace...

Actually, Lissa is quite tolerant of my little eccentricities.  That image went over well!

I even animated it...

There are a few however which I wouldn't dare show Her, or anybody else for that matter!!   devil

I actually forgot about Chaos Pro and the fact that it already does this for 3D Fractals (Mutatorkammer does it with 3D Fractals and images too, but the coloring gets ...  distorted?)

Here's an old experiment with Chaos Pro just made to see what happens when it maps an image to an irregular surface:

Yes, I made the audio too - but did it in such a silly way that you may not want to know!  A Genuine No-Prize to anybody who can guess how the audio was done!

TF,

Your fractal looks cool by itself.  Now imagine how it looks when you put on a pair of C3/ChromaDepth glasses smiley 

Stereoscopic 3D glasses that turns almost any 2D/3D image or animation into distinct layers of visual goodness.  I found out about this by accident when I playing with some Crayola 3D Explosion glasses at Wal-Mart.  I looked through the cutouts behind the packaging for the art kit and the colors of the gift card section lept out at me.  I think everyone in the store must've heard me exclaim "COOL!" repeatedly.  You can also get these types of glasses off the internet from various companies.

So anyways, thanks for the double treat smiley
