Please be patient and let it load for a while. It's choppy because your browser is downloading all the frames. It will run smooth once that is done!
Now I rendered a few frames of a classical elliptic/splits. Nothing fancy here. I am kind of playing around with how you can morph flames without altering the pattern and sharing the results.
I know, there are different tastes. Some say, the patterned fractal flames are boring and there are only a few styles/possibilities. Others say, the noisy, ghostly fractal flames are mashed and without direction or artistic intention ("button pushing")
I am neither of those opinions. I believe that you can create gorgeous works in both of those directions and I do not believe that noise and overlapping are signs of a beginner. But I like my patterns when I animate because I see so many flam3/flam4 animations with the mutative style and so few with the patterned style.
I hope that makes sense
