Download for Windows 32/64bit: chaoticafractals.com/chaotica_…

This release is mainly a bugfix release for the 0.47 beta, with many improvements to the user interface fixing issues such as the fractal not scaling when you changed resolution, imaging settings being spuriously reset and not saved properly etc. Hopefully it's a bit more friendly to use now :) It'll still crash if you try to restore state without having the original params loaded, that'll be fixed in the next release.

Another important change in this build is restored native support for bipolar, thanks to code Xyrus-02 provided from Apo7X15C beta 3. I'm hoping the small difference in handling the divide by zero and negative log etc will finally enable full compatibility - please test this and report if something looks wrong!

Thanks :)


Changelog:

0.48:
* Changed copyright to Glare Technologies Ltd.
* Added Glare Tech's Winter scripting language (not exposed yet)
* Added batch rendering
* Fixed zillions of UI issues related to handling of parameters / state
* Fixed epsilon in cross (Thanks again to FarDareisMai), possibly some other variations
* Added native foci variation
* Using native bipolar again, please test!

0.47:
* Added colour curves
* Improved image quality slightly, re-enabled SS 1 mode for large images (to allow higher max res in 32bit)
* Added IFS browser window, editable resolution / SS fields
  • Mood: Peaceful
  • Listening to: Lorn
  • Drinking: coffee

It seems I have a bit of a problem here... I'm using Apophysis 7x, and apparently linear 3d is not supported (?). Also, when I load the fractal, I get an error in the msdos console "Warning: Error resetting variable flower_petal". I checked the list of xform variables, there is no such one used in my flame o_O. If you'd like, I can send you a *.flame file.

in the newest apo7x 15c, the message about linear3d does not appear, but the flower petal error does.. and it crashes Chaotica.

the flower dll is also not needed in chaotica because it's built-in. nevertheless, i should add it to the plugin dll blacklist.

Chaotica cannot load the flower plugin at all. Even if it is not used in your fractal, you ALSO need to take it completely out of your chaotica plugins folder.

thank you :) it was actually in 0.47 already, but somehow a lot of people missed it... anyway, a lot of people said nice things about it, and apophysis tried to copy it so that's a sincere compliment too :giggle:

i like that image you linked, it's tastefully "muted" compared to what i do with the curves (rainbow extravaganza!) ;P
