Fractal Architect 3 Help Index
Applies to:FAFA 3DFA 3D-AV
Rendering Engine Improvements
The rendering engine has been improved in many ways.
- Xaos and Linked transform support in OpenCL renderer
Xaos Variants plus Linked transform support by random fractal generator.
- Video animation motion blur
- Render video animations to either image file sequence or movie
- Create movie from mage file sequence utility included.
- 2D and 3D Hack fractal rendering - 330 variation types
- Support for Direct color variation types
- Render state always preserved when rendering to file
- Continuous rendering mode
- Duo pane display of rendered images - shows incremental improvement
As always, full support for rendering on both GPUs and CPUs. Rendering on the GPU is so much faster than CPU rendering.
Full support for both 2D and 3D fractals in all areas of app:
- Preview window
- random fractal generator
- Camera variants
- Triangle Editor
Huge Variation Types Library
330 variation types are included (more to follow).
- 82 3D variation types
- 284 2D variation types
- 15 direct color variation types
- easy to make, easy to switch between
- no DLL’s
- Source repository included - no hunting all over the Internet for Apophysis DLL’s
- Full Variation source code include- - licensed under GPL3
- Can render files from any variation set - no need to shut down app and move DLL’s
- Automatic switching between 2D and 3D fractals
- Support for both 2D and 3D variation sets
Random Generation Changes
- Support added for linked transform and final transform
- 3D Camera randomization for 3D fractals
Many new variant categories:
- Color Shift - Hue, Saturation, Brightness
- Background color
- Pre/Post Matrix - Full Control
- Crazy Matrix -same as old Matrix variants
- Variation Weight
- Variation Parameters
Still have Full GPU Support !!
More explicit Device switching
