What would you do with this?

« on: February 09, 2019, 03:52:03 PM »
I only been using Mandelbulb 3D a couple of months. Went all over the web trying to find out what all there is to know about the program, and decided that this site is the best group of people to learn from. The file I am uploading represents as far as I get in making a fractal. Everything after this point gets distorted and image drop out. I was wondering what some of you would be able to make from this from your knowledge and then I would know which direction I should go next.
So anything you input would be a great benefit for me, and I really appreciate all the work the prior website, and this one has done to make Mandelbulb 3D so Unique and easier to use.
2+2=4
That's Dogma.

You were in the middle of the fractal and went stuck even with F6. You params works fine by resetting position. Also max. iterations were too high. 2000 is the maximum. 3D navigator is buggy and sometimes doesn't work as expected.
Once view reset, zoom out with F6 enabled and pressing S key.

Though your center is not fully embedded in a wall, when I find myself in a fractal with interior walls,  I 'shake' the fractal (navigator window, key A then key D) to see if that displaces the view. Otherwise, I use F6 to enable fixed zoom and S key (or explore with AWSD keys) to take the view to a better place.
Use Raystep and Stepwidth to gain detail and DE Stop, Step count, smooth normals to hide noise.
If you expand the Navigator misc panel, you'll find the iterations cannot be set beyond 2000.
See if the params below help

Thank You both, that's exactly it, I was confusing...Walking and Zooming...I totally overlooked the benefit of what Walking could do..I always just tried to zoom straight in...and yep always a dead end that way!
I only been doing this a couple months, but it's the only entertainment I enjoy any more.
I have went over most the Tutorials, so helpful...but forget what each thing does and wind up lost.
So best advice I found was the recommendation of practicing everyday.
Something about MB3Dv.2.01 seems to really be helping...haven't figured out exactly what, but there is so much more detail now.
I have looked at so Parameters on The internet I see them in My sleep now.
I am kinda also being a little stubborn and start from scratch every time.
I have seen people on certain web pages selling prints of obviously other peoples parameters for \$30-100 bucks each.
I contacted one person and they told that the parameters they used from Rick Estridge
http://www.craftweb.org/maniac/rick%20eskridge.html#ID:1068 are Public Domain and free to do whatever they wanted
with them, even if was rotate it a couple times, change the light, measure twice and cut once. Then sell it.
That to me doesn't seem what the licensing agreement and even plain honesty was meant when doing these pieces.
The most valuable treasures I find are the ones I found myself, though to you who have been doing this for so long, my little shiny rock aint no diamond, it just a pretty piece Quartz, then I cut it in half low and behold GOLD was inside like a Geode Stone. Not much really but my first stumbling find.
Anyway thank you all for your time here, and the original FF HOME were I stumbled upon it!
I would rather be lucky than good some say, I know that feeling now.
