Here's a short series of MB3D animations I created highlighting transparent dIFS.

My personal favorite is VVII; towards the end, it reminds me of all of those gigantic glass ashtrays that populated every room of my childhood.

Hope you find them interesting.

VVI: Proof of concept

VVII: Killing time with DoF

VVIII: DEcombinating stuff

p.s. Can someone please clarify for me what the "d" in dIFS stands for?  Is it "discrete", "deterministic", or something else entirely?

erhm, for once i can say for what the "k" in "kIFS" stands for wink its "kaleidoscopic"

and for the "d" i can just guess, but i think its "deterministic"


divide and conquer - iterate and rule - chaos is No random!

This is fascinating! How long did these take to render? Even single images with reflection and refraction take many minutes to render even on my high-end computer (using Mandelbulber.)

cKlein, you are correct, it does stand for deterministic, as a search for "dIFS iterated function system" reveals.

Hi Starmute. 

Rendering was surprisingly fast.  I was able to minimize the rendering time for the DIFS by reducing the Max Iterations for each keyframe to a bare minimum.

For the first video, the longest frame took roughly 2 minutes, with a total of 10140 total frames rendered.  The second one's longest render was about 5 minutes, with a total of 11952 frames rendered.  The 3rd one was a bit more stubborn, with a longest rendering time of about 1 hour per frame, and a total of 9253 frames.  Since I render on multiple computers, the total time to render all three videos was about a month or two (and then it usually takes me about another two or three months to get around to making an actual video out of the source images).
