Apophysis is a freeware windows application made in delphi for creating, editing, designing and rendering fractal flames. Fractal flame is an extension on the IFS fractal.[ Detail ]
Apophysis has many features for creating and editing fractal flames, including an editor which allows one to directly edit the transforms by manipulating triangles, a mutations window, which applies random edits to the triangles, an adjust window, which allows the adjustment of coloring and location of the image, and even a scripting language with direct access to most of the components of the fractal, which allows for effects such as the animations seen in Electric Sheep, which are also fractal flames. Users can export fractal flames to other fractal flame rendering programs, such as FLAM3.
There is a separate version of Apophysis that has support for 3D. There are numerous clones, ports, and forks of it.
Apophysis uses the Scripter Studio scripting library to allow users to write scripts which run and either create a new flame, edit the existing flames, or do bigger tasks. One such instance is rendering an entire batch of fractals.
Apophysis supports a plugin API so that new variations can be independently developed and distributed. There are numerous plugins available from the various user communities.[ Related Link ]Apophysis Wiki (Tutorials, Scripts and more)Another Apophysis Wiki (Tutorials, Scripts and more)Apophysis Official Online TutorialsFran's Apophysis Tutorial
