An amazingIFS guideA little guide on how to use amazingIFS formula on Mandelbulb 3D.An amazingIFS guide by batjorge
Here is a simple procedure on how to obtain these caracteristic “kleinian” shapes or however they are named with a simple heightmap. This mini tutorial can be done with any other dIFS shapes tough, like SphereIFS, etc.
I've used for this example a very simple grayscale map, filled with neutral grey (RGB 192)
If you don't want to make it or can't, you can download it here: http://sta.sh/0fu5qld142i
Don't forget to add the map to the working folder you have for Mandelbulb 3D!
I've lowered the max. Iterations to 25 in the formula window to speed things a bit up but you can change it later if you prefer to do so.
Put in the first slot HeightMapIFS and type 199 in the nr field:
Add amazingIFS to the second slot.Just set all rotation X, Y and Z from default 5 to 0, and change Fold X, Y and Z values to 1.
Leave everything e
MB3D Plants/Grass GuideHello everyone! Welcome to my another tutorial! First off, the tutorial is based off with agreement of original artist. So let's begin.MB3D Plants/Grass Guide by 3xternalResourc3
1. Open mandelbulb3D and fill first slot with "CommaIFS" and 2nd with "amazingIFS" and set 2 iterations on amazingIFS only
2. Set the Max Interations on 10-30 what will you prefer after all following setting will be done.
3. Now set similar values to CommaIFS variables: (be very gentle)
R1 = from -3.7 to -4
Scale = 0.8 - 1
Z Add = 0.01 - 0.1
Y Add = 0.6 - 0.8
X Add = 0 (keep 0)
R2 = from -0.5 to -1
Scale + Add = 1
R3 = 1.5 - 2
R Sphere = 0 - 0.1
Flip X-Z = 0 (keep 0)
Flip Y-Z = 0 (keep 0)
Signs = 1/3 (feel free to experiment)
Final TIP: For reaching the best effect and experience try mix with different dIFS formulas and DE-Combinating with formulas like Amazing Surf, Amazing Box, TetraVS etc. to make nature-feeling fractal! (As I specified, I "stolen" the idea and that presentation give best preview! )
For sure, here's my
