  • Playing with Fractals

    Is there any use in Fractals for our painting bits and pieces?

    Maybe as overlays or masks, or even colour overlays?

    Check out some of these...

    Fluffbutt:
    I do like fractals and you bring up an interesting point. I looked at the one called "Genetic Tampering, editing our future" and thought why not modify it. With the little circles cut them out and place a persons history in there. Example start at the upper right and show a fetus (kind of like in the movie 2001) and work thru a life cycle to a funeral.

    A questions is there software that produces fractal images and if so where can you get it? Also is there a way to control the amount of busyness in a fractal in most fractals they seem really all over the place like a kaleidoscope.

    Thanks

      hi bob,


      concerning fractals : make a search for fractal generators and you'll find plenty. There are even some free about

        to get a freeware Fractal Explorer it's brilliant!!

        yes - edit the formula (if you don't know 4 dimensional match (and who does really) just PLAY!!), and lower the 'iterations' (it's depth really).

          Also note that by their nature fractals are recursive - very much like a kaleidoscope.

          In fact a true fractal really goes down forever cycling itself over and over. Just look at the default Mandelbrot, look to the left a bit then zoom in - oooh another Mandebrot inside the first.. and so on, until the limits of OUR math (not the fractal).

            Fluffbutt and Gina:
            Thank you both for the fractal generators sites. Fluffbutt, I guess you can see I can only count to 100, math just escapes me but thanks for the explanation on fractals.
            Thanks
            Bob

              Newsgroup/Usenet Query.
              by chris h
              I wonder how many site members take advantage of the newsgroup/usenet resource. Friends unfamiliar with it are surprised when they get around to trying it out and seeing the variety of information available. All you need to access this resource is a reader (free) in the form of Agent, Xnews, Outlook...

              Soul?
              by Doug Nelson
              I find myself in a reflective mood this morning (you have been warned).

              As I try to do as often as possible, I was out on the web to explore what creative folk are putting in their galleries (using "gallery" in the loosest sense of the word, since it's not limited to just photos...

              I did something I've never done before. I've been an avid (rabid?) movie fan since I was too young to remember. Even today it's a rare day that I don't watch at least 2 movies, more on weekends. But I have never, (my inner drama queen insists I repeat this for emphasis), never watched a movie and immediately...

              S-SPline 2 or Genuine Fractals
              by fotofreak
              I am in need of enlarging some prints and need to find some software that will do the trick. I have used Genuine Fractals and still find allot of pixelation when enlarging the photo. I came across S-Spline 2 and they claim it is better that Genuine fractals. I have tried it and here again the is allot...
