spin by greentunic spin by greentunic
I don't think this turned out as well as my last one.

apophysis + gimp

this is not a fractal stock, so please don't edit it

check out my Fractal Packs if you want some fractals to use in your sigs/manipulations

This is fantastic - so smooth and sharp! What rendering engine and/or parameters do you use?

I rendered it right in apophysis. The render Quality was probably set to 10000 (recently I've only been using 6000), but I definitely cleaned it up some in gimp afterward.

And thanks!

Huh. What techniques do you use to clean it up? I usually don't get a good render unless I go 40000 or above.

Usually I'll do some of these things:
1) duplicate the fractal layer, blur it by .5-1 px and set to Lighten Only
2) apply the GREYCstoration plugin for gimp, which does noise reduction
3) blur another duplicate by 10-20 px and set to screen/soft-light at a lower opacity
4) sometimes I'll even zoom in and smudge certain parts by hand with a soft brush (more often in the background areas)
5) playing with levels/curves to adjust contrast can sometimes hide graininess
6) sometimes I'll render it even larger than I want and then scale it down a little

I'm sure it also depends on what sort of variations/transforms you use.

Cool, that's definitely some good tips and I hadn't been doing the Lighten thing before. Thanks!
