Last month's Ultra Fractal Redux Grand Midget Hunt Challenge is over, but it got me to discover the fun in finding Mandelbrot midgets. Actually finding midgets is easy; coloring the setting to make an attractive art piece is more challenging!

Flame Fractal Variations 1.0 by rsidwell
Flame Fractal Variations 1.0

This is a guide to some of the variations available in flame fractal programs. It's far from comprehensive, but I hope some will find it useful. I certainly learned a lot creating it!

The test flames I used for creating the examples are available at Flames for Testing.

TestFlames by rsidwell
TestFlames

This is a set of flames I use for testing variations in flame fractal programs. My normal process is to load one of the test flames then add a final transform using the variation or combination of variations I want to study. The flames with names ending "-linear" pipe everything through the last transform, which contains only linear, so does nothing as is, but you can add ztranslate or zcone to test how the variation under study handles z values.

Requires the nBlur variation by FractalDesire. The zip file contains a single file: TestFlames.flame. I developed it using Apophysis 7x version 15B, but have tested it in Apophysis 2.09, Apophysis 7x version 16, Chaotica 1.5.2, and JWildfire 2.00.

Some examples of how I use these are in my Flame Fractal Variation Guide.

Feel free to use these however you like. No permission or credit is required.
