Hi. Some of you may know me from the old fractalforums website. I helped to document variations on the Mandelbrot using the abs() functions, and many of my 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th order formula were added to Kalles Fraktaler.

Been out of the loop for a bit, haven't done much in terms of Fractal rendering since I won the 2016 contest and rendered a zoom video through the location:

Check out my deviantart gallery for more...

Again I want to shout out to Kalles Fraktaler for using my formulas in his awesome software, and for c.kleinhuis for maintaining the old website for so many years.

I recall studying your M-sets and learned a lot from it. Stuff I made up like https://fractalforums.org/image-threads/25/gerrit-images/565/msg6069#msg6069 comes from https://www.deviantart.com/kosmic-stardust/art/1024X-Long-595637805.
Those little green squiggles are very clever. The mosaics don't resemble traditional type mandelbrot renders at all. Without looking at the coordinates, I take it you are either near a minibrot or near to a long rift as you have tightly repeating asymmetric patterns which don't appear to havd curvature. The top and bottom halves of the image are different.

I also notice a bunch of renders with uniform color wells based on proximity rather than iteration depth. These tend to produce "neon tube" like dendrites. As I have been out of the loop for a while, I wonder if new rendering algorithms have been applied to Kallas Fraktaler or new software on the scene.

Take care...

Not sure when you dropped out, but it's distance estimation rendering. Claude came up with an algorithm to compute the gradient of the iteration map and noticed it looks like distance estimation. Turned out it IS that, in a numerical approximation. Since then he added proper (analytic) DE to KF.
That image is near a mini and it shows a doubling between ornaments, top ones twice as fast as bottom ones.

welcome back!

depending how long you have been out of the loop: I took over KF development when Kalle stopped, making it faster, adding new features.  homepage of my version is https://mathr.co.uk/kf/kf.html  just added to the new version very recently is knighty's nanomb2 algorithm (his nanomb1 was already a massive improvement over regular SA), which is much faster in certain locations especially near minibrots.  also recently added is a beginning of series approximation for burning ship

the neon tubes are probably using log(distance) colouring, which nicely shows features when "mini-stacking"; I added this to KF at Kalle's request, he used it to great effect in his final video (let me know if you can't find it and I'll try to dig out a link)
