We've split the page into zones!
Certain widgets can only be added to certain zones.
"Why," you ask? Because we want profile pages to have freedom of customization, but also to have some consistency. This way, when anyone visits a deviant, they know they can always find the art in the top left, and personal info in the top right.
Don't forget, restraints can bring out the creativity in you!
Now go forth and astound us all with your devious profiles!
There's quite a lot of stuff to go over, things have been extremely busy... Chaotica development is really picking up speed, and there's a brand new Facebook page to follow for news and announcements - your "Like" would be greatly appreciated!
Chaotica fractal art competition results
The first Chaotica fractal art competition was a Great Success!
There were over 50 entries (!!) for this competition, and deciding the winners was not easy at all! You can read more about the results and see the winning images on the forum here: chaoticafractals.com/forum/vie…
The mighty kokolores123 has made an awesome introduction video for Chaotica, check it out!
Last but not least, we've just announced the Indigo 3.6 release! These stable version releases come with attendant sales specials of 25% to 33% off, and the Indigo RT version is particularly cheap at 99 Euro - very close to Chaotica Studio's 80 Euro price.
Any Indigo licence is valid for Chaotica, meaning you can get both a super high-end 3D renderer and a Chaotica Studio licence with the same purchase!
Upcoming features and improvements
Lately I've been working really hard on Chaotica's animation support, and the first results are extremely promising! Fully correct, very high quality motion blur is supported with very little performance impact if any; I believe this is a first for fractal rendering software, which often struggles to render even still images correctly Expect some test animations and more news about this really soon.
A much-needed UI update is also in the works, along with all the improvements already made. I'm not sure how to number the next release, since there is so much new stuff in there!
Anyway, this journal is pretty long already and there's still much to come, so I'll end this here Keep an eye out for news on the chaoticafractals deviantArt group, and if you'd like to chat about anything please feel free to join the #Aposhack chat channel!
