Experiment: Mandelbulber's "Nothing"
Previous Image | Next Image
Description: I made an experiment with a material with the properties of nothing (no reflections, total transparency and refraction of 1 and just to be sure i made any color white). I made a standard menger fractal. There should'nt be anything visible. But actually there is a lot of noise visible. When i average 27 images of this noise, the result is this. I guess the reason for the noise is the same as the reason, why most transparent fractals are actually not transparent. The question is, where are the colors coming from? The blue and white could be reflections from the blue part of the default sky. Reflections on a material without any reflections.

By the way, the nothing material is a nice way to look inside other things. Thats the reason, why i made it. Just place a primitive made of "nothing" onto a fractal to open a window into its hollow inner structure. To let the nothing of primitives be an invisible nothing you have to maximize quality on image settings!

turn off any reflection and AO, and hopefully the blue will go.  ;)

Actually there should'nt be anything visible. I'd prefer, when the "nothing" would actually not be visible. Soon i show why (it's currently calculating).
