most appreciated...
I honestly only went into fractals as I hadn't really done it before, and it kinda snowballed...

I know nothing about the underlying math, but I pride myself on being able to learn most basic software with a decent GUI,
and JWildfire for the Mac is pretty easy to pick up on... from there, it's been all about tweaking settings of a randomly-generated
"flame" until something leaps out at me and begs to be preserved (not unlike, say wildlife photography, lol)...

a lot of the works became deliberate in terms of the desired form, but a lot of the final outcome is still left to the quirks of fate...
I just consider myself lucky if I can tell when to stop and save / render the things, lol...

O Yes I understand how a new medium(discover/tool)can be overwhelming!
JWildfire works only with Mac?I never heard of this program,is it like PS?it really sounds interesting!
I think when it comes to Fractals' creation you just let the tide takes control of you-if you know what I mean-quit like abstract.

no, JWildfire is a Java app, so is platform independent...
and no, it is NOT like PS... its Mac interface is very much like a System 7 application...
I therefore suspect the Intel version might be similar to an older Win app...

it's actually a resurrection of an old Amiga application, lol

and yes, I agree... it's often useful to just see where the app takes you...
a majority of my better fractals went JUST that way...
I amy have ahd a basic shape in mind, but I have yet to render a piece that hadn't already
exceeded my "vision" by leaps and bounds...

O I see,a Java app!
Ok though I have a limited idea about Fractals but I think there are "brushes' sets"in PS that do the same work,not sure of the info but heard about it:D,do you have any idea about that?and have you tried them before?
Yes,it almost works out well,its so raw and spontaneous,just like when you do a sketch for a new drawing or painting!
