r = sqrt(z2.x - z2.y - z2.z + (z2.y * z2.z) / (z2.x)) option has been added to scator power 2 formula.  (not in openCL yet, but will implement it in next few days)

I have revisted analytic DE but have been unable to get it to work any better. DeltaDE is still the preferred method.

Great! I just want to confirm that this r is correct only for real scator algebra (not imaginary).
By the way, what is used in the programme is r² (r squared) since there is no point in evaluating the sqrt, i.e. bailout is 4 (not 2) in usual formulae (in scators is 100 which is fine). This is important, because if r² is negative, we are still in the reals and no problem should arise. However, if the root is evaluated, problems arise, since inequalities are defined for the reals, not for complex numbers.
Thank you once again.
Please ask Budhi (I am spelling it incorrectly!?) how you would like to be cited.

at the moment i am reworking  it all,  you can currently choose what r to use for the  analyticDE. Bailout is something i need to figure out, as how to implement it in the formula code oppoesd to compute_fractal.cpp

for buddhi  use   Krzysztof Marczak

For correct color work you need to use Color-By-Numbers

e.g

sc radial is coloring based on distance from origin, the center of each color is in 0.1 units from the origin
sc minR again the colors are in 0.1 intervals (this is like the standard orbit trap coloring but numerically correct)

Code: [Select]

yep the r2 for bailout has been on the TODO list for sometime but it involves adding some backwards compatibility code, and  a lot of boring work , but in theory it will speed up the main loop for many linearDE type fractals that only need r calculalted in the final calculation.

with color there are two existing transforms where we can add any additional color calculations that you might need.

I went to 'color by numbers' in the program but where do I see 'sc radial' and 'sc minR'
How do I choose one or the other?
(I a sorry for such elementary questions ...)

they were just names for my jpgs.  The settings i provided are the  sc minR =   Color by number orbittrap component (standard), . Disable that  and enable colorvalue initial conditions components and you will get the color based on the points initial radial distance from the origin

I will have a look at bug zip, but  the difference may be due to single versus double precision floating point'

the standard coloring function is based on  the minimum distance the point gets to the origin during the iterations

The bug when opencl colours dark seems to be when x > -1 and there is a bounding box.
I can confirm that it happens consistently with various views and conditions.

it happens with other fractal too,  e.g quaternion in both openCL and c++, but the extent of the effect varies.
at the moment i am guessing it has to do with light.  Set light horiz angle to 90 and vert angle to 0, this will reduce the effect. This is an issue for Krzysztof.

On a separate topic, download latest build, the analyicDE Scator Pow 2 has been updated and can now be found in the Custom DE section. (The formula Scator Pow2 StdR will be removed as it can be replicated in Scator Pow 2 UI)

We now have  three r options, but you will see that Real formula using analyticDE with Real r  does not exactly replicate  the version using DeltaDE  Logarthmic
Imaginary works well.

Force bailout (default 2.0) is a hack. This does not effect the sliced limits view, but normal view you will get different surface texture depending on this setting.

Thank you for both of you for looking into the bug.

I will download latest build to try the three options. Thanks. Will be back to you once I try them.

Hi,

have just updated to latest version - and it works nice with OpenCL .... (FirePro w8100)
The only thing i miss is doubleprecision to go deeper with OpenCL.
Suggestion -> place the switch (single or double precision) in the same actual OpenCL render option (fast/medium/full) as it is faster to zoom in with Single precision and switch to Double if needed as open the menu and set the (actual na) option in the OpenCL settings to double if needed ...

Regards

R-Team, I think the answer is yes, but not high on the TODO list. There are few users who have GPU cards that can handle double precision

Dear friends,

I git cloned the last mandelbulber version today 30-jan-2020. And to my dismay, opencl is no longer working with the scator fractals (neither imaginary nor real). I shall be most grateful if you remedy this problem.

yours,

mclarekin

I confirm that with your settings no fractal is produced with opencl but renders fine without it.
