Nice! I look forward to pixelizing some classic fractals ;) Thanks!

I just found your Pugnacious Blog - wow! Thank you ever so much. I'm going to give it a good read. Thank you.

Hopefully it helps you out. Feel free to poke me if you have any questions or there's something you don't understand. If that's the case, it means I need to do better on the explanation side of things and I'll have to give it a fix. Have fun!

Absolutely! You've made a fantastic resource. I started following along on one and got stuck (my fault as I'm not putting all my energy into learning this yet!) This morning I worked out what was wrong and think I can follow. From that however, I had this huge feeling as it suddenly hit me how absolutely endless fractals and indeed Chaotica are in their unique complexity. It was like staring into endlessness!

Need to control my excitement as I still know practically nothing:)

Awesome! Feel free to hit me up on discord if you want. I have some chaos files I've made as learning aids that I can toss your way. They are mostly in line with the tutorials, but fully labelled and annotated. :D

Thanks v much! I will check it out. I confess I'm still struggling with Discord :o I will try and understand it. In the meantime, I've attached my render from following one of your tutorials. Quite pleased I managed to follow it. Problem I keep having is that every time I load Chaotica I seem to love some of the random stuff that comes up:)

Looking awesome there. Loving randomness isn't a bad thing. There is such a thing as a tasteful overlap. Also, on that tutorial, in order to get rid of the gaps around the hemispheres, you can adjust the post_smartcrop to have a power of -999 instead of -8 and then adjust the sizing to match perfectly. that is...if you like to fill all the gaps. :D

It's better to have the power smaller than -2, let's say -4, and change the distortion to 0. 0 distortion creates a perfect circle.

Thank you Pugnacious & ToanLish. I see what you're saying. Sorry for the late reply. I confess I missed this all over the xmas period. I need to get back on this. One tutorial is only the first step for me!

Best, Michael.
