3D IFS Fractal full rotation by casteeld 3D IFS Fractal full rotation by casteeld
Although not really visually attractive, it is a technological milestone for me.

It's a long story, for those of you who have been watching my work, this animation represents the newest level of success.

There are 180 frames of animation, the fractal itself does not change that's the next step, but the camera travels in a full 180 deg circle about the origin.

The biggest achievement with this animation is, the frames were rendered on Sun's N1 grid. True distributed parallel processing! What would have probably taken 24 hours to render on my laptop, (if it didn't destroy itself trying) took about 3 hours on the grid. In addition, I still had full use of my computer while the frames were rendered.

The book I was talking earlier is actually in portugese, but was written by Benoit Mandelbrot, who has extense literature on the subject, from the more math heavy approach, to the artistic apreciation.

This is great, I love to see that the 3D fractal project is going well.

It would definetly be something to create 3D fractals one day...

Thank you, it's definitly getting there.
I hope to one day have a good user interface to make it easier to design the actual fractal. At this point it's still very random.

Thank you very much, it's crude and it's taken a while to get here, but at least you can imagine the possabilities.

I can see in my mind's eye, more than I'll ever be able to make a computer do.

Thanks

Thanks,

After nearly a full year of pulling my hair out, the dream is starting to become a reality.

Holy cow. This is simply amazing!!!!!!!! *stares at it for a good few minutes* Haha, I had techno music playing when I first opened this, and it was really cool watching it to techno music because it looks like one of those movies where the camera goes around a really cool building or a setting that's a high climax of the movie. Well executed! I can't wait till we get to the part where we animate the fractal while we rotate the camera... then I'd be in a heaven ABOVE heaven :D

Wonderful job!
