blame Doug nice ones there Janet the iced one looks like a snowflake magnified ! but i do like all of them.
And i hadnt really thought of it before but as they are saved on a transparent background they are so easy to combine with images as backgrounds etc, watch this space i will be messing around some more soon (instead of doing other things )

Re: Flame fractals

How do you make an image with the software without the noise effect it seems to add when I use it?
Thanks

I had been looking for this answer myself and had been fiddling with settings etc and getting sidetracked
so I have been hunting for some tuts and here are a few i found the first one has some advice on reducing noise

Re: Flame fractals

Did you miss the tutorial on the download site?

Fran's Apophysis Tutorial

Where she states: "Tip
If the flame in the main viewing pane is quite "grainy" click on the options button and scroll down to "options" and click. Under the "Display" tab go to "Quality" (previously called "Sample Density".) If the number is too low eg. 5 this will result in quite a grainy image. I usually work with my Quality at 35 or a little higher. This gives a reasonable view of a flame. Just bare in mind, the higher the Quality the better the preview but a much longer rendering time."

Regarding the rendering time... toward the end of the tutorial she states, "I find my flames render very nicely using a sample density of between 400 and 600. Others use a sample density of 2000. The higher the setting the better the definition of the flame.
Click the "Render" button. Depending on the size of the image you may want to do something else while you wait."

OO-oo! Thanks Palms! Those are stunning.

I have my Google Reader set-up so that when this guy uploads a new work of art I'm notified. I 'heart' fractals.
