Apophysis 7X (Public Domain)Hey guys, it's George
I've been building the latest PD code on SourceForge.net and just call it an update since there have been a few changes:
+ Added keyboard shortcuts to zoom the editor panel (Numpad Multiply and Numpad Divide to zoom in or out)
* Changed versioning labels: this version does not carry a version number
- Removed donate button
- Removed trace log option in menu
Since the scripting component is a little problematic - legally and technically -I've set the "DisableScripting" flag in the source code by default. This means you can't use scripts in this version which has been build directly from the source. The scripting feature of Apophysis is based on a component named "TMS Scripter Studio" which is commercial. I can't provide it on SourceForge and if I would enable it in the code, nobody else who didn't buy the component would be able to build Apophysis. I didn't want to change it locally because I wanted you to give you an exact build of the
Why I was deactivated and a small announcementHey guys. It's George speaking,
If you watched my profile closely, you might have noticed that I was deactivated for a few days. I've got some "why"s about that and obviously, I'm back now. Well here is why: after some thinking about what I'm still doing here, I made the decision to close my account. Sounds harsh but hey, you all know where to get Apophysis, the plugins and whatever you need. And you also have a support e-mail if you need help and last but not least, you find a fractal coding discussion platform at the mailing list, no problem. You can also follow my art on RedBubble if you're not here to get help with Apophysis. And this website is stuck in the early 2010's, still doesn
Apophysis 7X 15C - Hotfixes #2!An updated version of Apophysis 7X15C is hitting the servers right now. The changes are:
+ Added possibility to specify a custom plugin path for the 32 bit version
+ Fixed bipolar variation (wrong constant used in preparation routine - M_2_PI is not 2 * PI. Thanks, Fred!)
+ Fixed "X"-button next to the search field
+ Fixed a memory leak in the renderer
+ Changed the 32 bit version to use 32 bit-floats (instead of double precision = 64 bit floats) which results in less memory use in the 32 bit version and higher image quality in the 64 bit version
+ Changed Chaotica integration so that 64 bit Chaotica is enforced if 64 bit Apophysis is running
I'm sorry for the update frequency but that's how it is in the first days after a new major release! People are actively tracking bugs and report the results to me. And I fix them and release hotfixes Once we - as a community - tracked down all the (not so hidden) bugs, the update frequency will drop to normal again
As usual, the download
Apophysis 7X 15C - Hotfixes #6! (Hopefully final)Okay. A few more TINY problems were addressed here:
+ Fixed author/language name loading code. Was still trying to read ANSI-characters which scrambled the display in non-ANSI languages (actually a not-so-tiny problem)
+ Added chinese localization contributed by ~fengda2870 - available from apophysis.xyrus-worx.org
+ Fixed a few strings which were not localized
I really hope this is the last hotfix release and it's perfect now Enjoy!

Apophysis 7X 15CI have here a preliminary release of Apophysis 7X 15C. The following changes have been made:
+ Added log (from logn - included the variable log(n)_base)
+ Added polar2
+ Added cross
+ Added wedge
+ Added epispiral
+ Added (pre-/post-)bwraps
+ Added blur_circle
+ Added blur_zoom
+ Added blur_pixelize
+ Added (pre-/post-)falloff2
+ Added splits
+ Added separation
+ Added bipolar
+ Added loonie
+ Added escher
+ Added scry

+ Added (pre-/post-)crop
+ Added elliptic
+ Added waves2
+ Added auger
+ Added pre_spherical
+ Added pre_sinusoidal
+ Added pre_disc
+ Added post_curl
+ Removed linear3D (the 3D-linear is now simply called "linear")
+ Changed all variations which were in Apophysis before so that they are 3D-aware. This means that all variations PRESERVE the z-position of their points instead of resetting it to zero like before. Your 3D parameters likely need tweaking HOWEVER I added
A few common Apo7X15C problems and their fixesI get an error about Apophysis7X.rand and/or Apophysis.undo when I start Apophysis
It's a Vista/7-issue which spawned after using Delphi XE2 as the main compiler (since 15C) You have multiple possibilities:
1. Right click the Apophysis shortcut or EXE-file and select "Properties". Go to the "Compatibility" tab and check "Run as administrator". Try again.
2. Copy your Apophysis folder to the desktop (or "My Documents") and try running it from that location.
3. Go to the control panel and disable UAC ("User account control")
A permanent fix is on the way.
I get a crap ton of access violations when I open Apophysis and/or the Editor window
My assumption is that there is an incompatibility in your settings. Reset them the following way:
1. Exit Apo, hold the Windows-Key and hit "R" on your keyboard. Enter "regedit" and hit return.
2. On the left side, browse to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software" and find the folder "Apophysis 7X".
3. Right click that folder and click "Delete".
Apophysis 7X 15C - Hotfixes #5!Aaaand another hotfix release. This time, these problems were addressed:
+ Fixed bwraps, pre_bwraps and post_bwraps (potential division by zero) - thanks again, Fred!
+ Added localization support for the curves panel
+ Changed the flame and translation loading/saving code to support and use UTF8 encoding
+ Updated german localization
+ Updated italian localization (with the help of the great `lindelokse - thanks!)
You can get the updated localizations from apophysis.xyrus-worx.org. The binary/source downloads are here (and also on the homepage):

Apophysis 7X 15C - Hotfixes #3Two things changed:
+ Added color curves dialog
+ Fixed plugin recognition routines. Variations, which were already built-in were loaded anyway which lead to an "Access Violation" storm in the editor. Thanks again ~morphapoph for tracking the origin of the problem in such a masterful way!
The color curves dialog is very simple and straight forward. Works like the one in Photoshop. Or Chaotica. Or GIMP...and it's not perfect. It's a new feature and maybe a bit bugged. But we'll see how much better it gets over time

Apophysis 7X 15C - Hotfixes #7! EDIT: Oops!!Oops! Something went wrong with uploading the files when I added this hotfix. The download links pointed to Hotfix #6 still. Please re-download Hotfix #7 if you downloaded it already. It's now pointing to the correct version.
Thanks, ~fengda2870 for pointing it out.
I added two rather critical fixes to Apophysis 7x15c:
+ Fixed post_curl variation by doing the following on ~Zueuk's suggestion (more below)
+ Fixed a bug which created a spiral (why so ever) on the blur variation when using multithreading
post_curl_c3 got removed and post_curl was made a simple, 3D aware variation (Z-passthrough)
The functionality of the former, built-in post_curl was renamed to post_curl3D which essentially a post'ified curl3D where the latest post_curl behaves like the plugin (except for the Z-passthrough)
This fix was done as a result of the recent CDA.
The problem that the blur-variations as well as the crop-variations might malfunction if you use MT and render anything non-transparent P

Ignore This Random JournalEDIT
You might want to read some comments here for some more little clue and a param.
Have you ever wonder how to create a fractal like this:
Well, those fractals are from two different fractal style, joined togehter into one single apo flame via xaos. a flame become the filler for the plastic bubble style. The first one is juliaN fractal joined with plastic bubble. The second one is mobius gasket inside plastic bubbles. The third one is plastic bubbles inside plastic bubbles. And the last one is julian/ring2 flame inside palstic bubbles.
Worry not. I'm here to tell you the secret The secret is xaos. So, on this journal, i'll write about how to create it. At first, i want to make this explanation as a tutorial. you know, jpeg based tutorial like i ussually do. But after some consideration, i think it's better to just explain it here. The reason is because this trick need s
What is Glitch Style?This question, like "What is the biological definition of life?" and "What images and sets count as 'fractals'?" is not as straightforward as it first appears!
In the end, glitch style is really determined by its look: patterns and textures that almost never occur naturally in apophysis. These patterns and textures can take many forms:
Keyhole by `FarDareisMai
How are these patterns and textures achieved?
There is usually a strict deterministic xaos loop: Xform 1 feeds only to xform 2, which feeds only to xform 3, which feeds only back to xform 1. There is no branching, as in a more typical IFS. Sometimes, extremely unbalanced weights can give a similar effect.
Transforms often only a
Apophysis F.A.Q.We noticed there was a constant income of recurring questions about Apophysis on the group's homepage, so I collected the most common ones and `Xyrus-02 kindly answered them for us .
Where do I get Apophysis? Is it expensive?
Apophysis is free, open-source software. That means, it does not cost you a cent. In addition, everyone is able to change the software using
the available source code. This is also why there are different
versions of Apophysis:
The "official" or "main" version of Apophysis. You can download it from Apophysis.org
Apophysis 2.08 3D
The original Apophysis 3D hack. You can download it from Sourceforge.net (where you can also get newer beta versions of Apophysis 2.x)
A popular version of Apophysis including all 3D features, better support for Windows Vista and Windows 7 and a

October Color Contest - Final Day!BULLETIN:
Happy Halloween, folks!
First off, a reminder to all of you to stay safe, be responsible, and remember that even though you're (no doubt) the productive, healthy sort of fellow who takes proper steps to maintaining coherent sobriety...a lot of people ain't. So keep your eyes open for drunk drivers, drunk pedestrians, and drunk cranes dangling precariously a thousand feet overhead.
Secondly, today is the last day for the October Color Contest. So be sure to finish up your entry and get it submitted by...oh who am I kidding, it's Halloween. Don't putz around on the drawing table tonight, go out there and harass your neighbors for free candy. I'm sure that at 2 am they don't care that you're alone, 28, and your costume is "Goodyear Tech Support Guy."
Also, we could really use a final blitzkrieg of generosity on ~CMC-Donations. Remember, any donation of 50 points or more will get you a three-thumbnail art feature in the :dev
updates on the game issue... plus bad weatherokay, update on my sailormoon image, that was used without permission to make a dress up game. i emailed the moderators of the game, and got a reply. they apologized for using my drawing without permission, and said that they took it from google. and since it doesn't have any writing or watermark on it, they thought that it was an open image. so that's y they used it.
but strange, everytime i googled 'super sailormoon', yeah my drawing would show up among the top results (wow, can't believe how famous this drawing is now) but it's always linked to my DA. so i don't know how they got the un-linked image.
anyway, they were sorry, and left the final say to me. take it down or leave it there. i must say, i was tempted to leave it there, and get some free exposure. but then, y did it had to be the sailormoon drawing? it's a fanart, i made it as a tribute to naoko takeuchi. the character doesn't belong to me, that's y i never used the image to make even a single penny. i feel that i don't ha
Surprises!Quite unexpectedly, I have received two mysterious gifts this week from my wishlist.
I don't know who you magical elves are and I don't know what I did to deserve this outpouring of love, but a huge thank you to whomever sent me the following, I love them dearly and they will hang happily in my office at home
A million thank you's!
Our DutyWe swallowed the path home
Because we were hungry,
Though starving is an ongoing
Story, an empty bag
Dancing in the streets,
Full of an unfastened voice
Walking through the house,
Wind unchained, heart admonished.
Heaven fills its eyes, crawls away,
That sleeping boat content to follow
The vacant waves, intervals
Of dying that we dare not interrupt,
And we watch the kind ear shrinking
From our charcoal docks; heaven
With a full stomach crawls away.
This is what we were put here for.
Keep in Touch!
