Hi guys, sorry it's been so long since the last update
Chaotica has been tremendously improved
since the last public release, thanks to amazing support from the dA fractal community
and Glare Technologies. After many semi-public betas in #Aposhack
it's long overdue to talk about the changes here!
A ton of bugfixes and improvements have been made throughout the application, and especially the world editor. Undo and Redo for edits has been implemented, the (affine) transform axes now are labelled and you can also edit the post-affines, the randomly generated parameters are much nicer, cropn is natively supported, batch mode has been greatly improved, if you're feeling really nerdy there's even a Lyapunov exponent
histogram in there! ... the complete list of changes will be really long, and I still haven't finished putting that together!
One of the more significant changes is in the licensing structure: there are now two commercial versions, namelyChaotica HD
: Resolution limited to 4 megapixels, eg 2560x1600Chaotica Studio
: No resolution limit, with other distinguishing features to follow (eg. with regard to animation)
The free version will now be limited to approx 1.23mpix, eg 1280x960, to reflect the low cost of the HD version.
The previous Chaotica licence, which is equivalent to the Studio licence, was somewhat inaccessible to hobbyist users who want to make really nice wallpapers, but don't expect to make money back selling prints. Chaotica HD's low cost of €25 (or $32) is intended to meet this market, while the Studio version remains targeted at professional digital artists. Please see the store page (Euro
) if you'd like to purchase a licence.
Chaotica now has an awesome logo designed by Sam Lavoie (Lavoi
here on dA). Sam is extremely skilled and very professional, it was a pleasure working with him (again!) on this.
There are so many exciting new things to come in the near future, and I'll try to post more often here
