Greetings, I am feeling a little apprehensive about which forum topic is best to ask some basic newbie questions concerning the Mandelbulb app, and/or how to plug in new formulas? How can I utilize the parameter file codes I see on Deviantart.com that follows an image? Where might I find a primer on 3D animation? Etc...
Is there a best place for such general questions?

Hi and welcome!
I moved the topic to the proper place.
Regarding those parameters, just copy the text and  then open mandelbulb3d and in the "open" tab on the right you'll see "from clipboard. Click that and then on calculate 3d on the right to actually render the image.

you can find a huge list of tutorials froim beginners to very advanced here: https://fractal.institute/create-fractals/the-mandelbulb-3d-master-training-resource-guide/

And never hesitate to just ask. We all started out and mandelbulb3d can be a bit intimidating.


edit: here's an animation tutorial video:

@rwbmuse a little more on using other people's parameters as there is no tutorial for that that I know of:

Copy the parameters starting from Mandelbulb3Dv18{ and ending with the closing parenthesis } to the clipboard
In Mandelbulb3D on the Open-tab, click on the button that says: TXT, which will paste the parameter into the program.

Happy exploring! :)
To thine own self be true
