Author Topic: Instead of spheres, use roses in your mandelbulb  (Read 1202 times)
Description: New formula to play with

Try mixing mandelbulbs with this formula:

r = A + B * cos ( C * theta) * cos (D * phi)

A, B, C, and D are constants (or varying parametrically, but I haven't done this).  For interesting results, make C and D non-integer  A little transparency also pays off big time.  If A is bigger than B, go into the middle and look around.

What I'd like to see is little copies of the rose up and down the petals.  Maybe someone can do this.

Also ray tracing and getting internal surfaces without creating a mesh would be interesting, if someone can solve that.

you know, on one hand, transparency is pretty cool but on the other hand, it confuses the eye, especially with structures as complex and varying as this...

Though, what I can grasp, it looks very nice smiley

though, couldn't you have cut away the windows frames? Grin with closed eyes
