Before I get into the cool stuff, let me explain a bit about why I've been gone so long. Back about 18 months ago, my LTD insurance company cited my computer's ability to render fractals and my ability to post them as some kind of evidence that I was not disabled and could work. Gave me a real sour taste in my mouth about Apophysis. I then started several months of playing with Incendia, resulting in my first DD, and then was accused of ripping off someone else's art. Fractals lost all element of fun at that point. So I stopped doing them and went on other things. Recently though, after a laptop upgrade to Windows 7, I dusted off some of my Apo scripts and loaded up the latest version(s) of Apo. A lot has changed. I may never get my old level of proficiency back and probably won't be as active here as I once was, but you may see some new things from me in the future if you follow me on Facebook where I've recently posted some images (www.facebook.com/djeaton). If you friend me there, mention DA so I'll know who you are.
Anyway, the incredible thing I recently came across is 3D renders of something called the Mandlebulb. I need to read the article and try to comprehend it, but the 3D images at this www.skytopia.com/project/fract… are absolutely incredible. If anyone knows how to do that, I'd love to hear from you.

this is SO exciting.. I've just had a quick look and have no idea if I could ever do anything like this... ???
Something tells me it would kill my laptop. The author mentioned a month to do a 4,000x4,000 render.
Can't see your images --- but the link to the information really LOOKS Great!~ Let me know wht you find out! I too would love to try it!
