Saved File Corrupted
« on: January 09, 2021, 07:25:02 AM »
Twice now I've had the fractal I like and the formulas disappeared. 

Before it dissappeared I Saved the file and everything reopened fine.
Then I started adding animation, camera movement, and I think I editing a fold setting on the julian mode.
The animation looked great on the preview.  I save over my last file, as I don't want to
render at the moment... upon reopening...  there are no formulas and something is
wrong with the file.  Any ideas? thx

need some info to answer anything


The name of the program you're using?

Check under the board "Fractal Software" on the main page, your question may already have an answer... and posting a question about a specific program there would probably be a good idea ;)

I will check under "Fractal Software".

I'm using mandelbulb 3D.

I unfortunately don't know all of my specs.  Windows 10, a high end graphics card and good processor.  A friend of mine built this computer for me to render animation, so it's built for performance but I'll figure out the specs when I'm home later.

Thanks for the input!

Can you post a file you are having trouble with?

with a high end graphics card you could look at Mandelbulber (not to be confused with Mandelbulb 3D), as it uses the GPU. You can animate much faster and have options that allow you to animate effects and fractal parameters to audio track input triggers.

Is there a way to make a fractal out of photos or saved images?
