chaotica 0.4 by lyc chaotica 0.4 by lyc
DOWNLOAD

the latest version of chaotica can be downloaded from chaoticafractals.com: [link]

the 64 bit versions are faster but cannot use apophysis dll plugins, relying instead on the many built-in variations (see variation_compatibility.xml for an alphabetical list).


ETC

please let me know about any bugs you find :thanks: special thanks to `FarDareisMai, erik reckase and the deviantart fractal community :ahoy:

example params by ~Zueuk & ~Jeddaka, ~Meckie &^SaTaNiA, `lindelokse and `SuicideBySafetyPin

So, I'm sorry, another question - actually two -

1) When I check the box for "Save Alpha Channel" near where you choose background color, where does it save this alpha channel? The .png of the render has no alpha.

2) How am I supposed to use the Save State and Restore State features? Save State works fine to create a .lyc file, but when I hit Restore State and try to load that file, Chaotica crashes every time!

heya, no problem.

1. use the beta build linked in #Aposhack, it has fixed alpha and many improvements.

2. load the params you used to render first, then restore state. sorry for the confusion!

I still get crashes - if I edit and save a different set of parameters in the same .flame file would that cause problems, or is it more likely the problems are caused by upgrading?

the state file should be saved with the same chaotica version, since there's additional information in the newer versions (0.5 beta 3). the params loaded should also be the same, i.e. have the same resolution specified, else you can set the resolution to be the same before loading the state.

basically you want to have the same params loaded and rendering before loading the state, then it'll continue right where it left off.

OK, it was probably that I was trying to load from an earlier version then. Thanks.

sorry, there should definitely have been a helpful message instead of a crash!

Hi
Is Chaotica better than apophysis renderer? And at what points?

hi alexey, chaotica aims to be both higher performance and higher quality than apo. a lot of "variations" are built in, and work in the 64bit build to allow really high resolution printing (above 2GB). it's written in highly efficient c++ and is fully multithreaded.

stay tuned for more info on chaotica if you're interested, there will finally be some news soon :)

Does Chaotica not like direct color? I tried one with DC_Perlin and there was no color variation on that transform.

correct, unfortunately DC isn't supported at the moment :blushes:
