Bib: If you really want to explore the different powers of the mandelbulb you might want to implement some sse math for them also, the difference in speed is probably 20x. It might require a bit of c++ knowledge but copy pasting the pwr8 one it should just be changing the math expression (although the program will still need to be recompiled).

Interesting pictures where is the first one taken from?

Unfortunately I don't program, and I don't know exactly where I took the pictures, I did not note down the coordinates sad

Here is another one, in Power 8

Can't wait for a faster version of your program smiley

Trifox: Sorry, still not sure what you mean, I cant spot any rectangular stuff in that pictures. Do you mean perhaps the way thin waffer structures get missformed and have holes in them? Thats because the voxel fields just take point samples on a grid and those waffer will sometimes fall between the points until the grid get refined enough. I guess that could be fixed if someone who understand DE better than me would add in so that it would consider any point within the current voxel size from the inside to be inside.

Bib: seems like you figured out how to change the shader fx files at least, or did you photoshop the colors of some of those pictures?
Im afraid that I wrote the program the fastest I could come up with, so no easy speedups from me (for the pwr8 at least).

I changed the color/contrast with another software.

possibility for editing the shader files would also be awesome ...

... we need to fix that precision thing !

Thx that fixed it, but DAMN it's slow. Yet I have Geforce GTX 260! I guess the Aero thing in Windows might do some serious damage to the performance :S

To change the shader files you can download the source and put the file mandelbulb.fx in the same folder as the exe and then modify it. Currently you only have the normal and position as input parameters to play with, anything more will need changes in the c++ code although there are two free values in the input format.

Also note that if there is an error in the file version it will use the one embedded in the exe instead which can be a bit irritating sometimes.

hmm, i just would like to have a runtime ( or at each start ) editable gpu script file, with the actual formula inside, and i would love
to enter some more formula types

Some optimization for the power-2 version would be pretty nice... Personally, I prefer it to all the other powers. More variety, I find.  wink

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.
