In all this time I've never really looked at different powers.

Here's power of 3

Started to tidy up my website

Well did some much needed attention to my web site.
Scanned some old images.
And looked into using UltraFractal.

Interactive JuliaBristor set map

Added an interactive JuliaBristor set map to my site

You can mouseover the image on my site and explore the juliabistor sets (a little clearer)

First Render by Jos Leys

To my excitement I've seen a render using my maths by someone else, Jos Leys

Also uploaded another vidio to youtube.

Google Code - fractaldimension -java

Just created a Google code page

Contains Java package to create animation frames.

Command line interface using bash scripts to control the frame perimeters

You will need need imagemagick to convert the ppm's to png's
and povray to render the height maps.

Java source contains algorithm for 3D to 5D shapes.

Height Map
Ray trace

i x j is not j x i

First day of getting back into fractals again

I well I've been busy uploading my videos onto youtube, creating google code account, photographing my models, and just going through my old stuff. You may notice that my blogging method is rather poor, I'm hoping it will get better.

My letter to Dan

I've always been a bit funny about my fractal.
But with Dan's fantastic Images

It seems time to start sharing my work, yet trying to get and keep recognition of my contributions.

Hi Dan (White)

I didn't use spherical coords in the way you did. Although the the maths I used was built around the process of rotating.

i x j = -j
j x i = i

When I started this I was borrowing my Land Lady's son computer which was a 66MHz 486. So I avoided the computationally heavy trigonometry, and went for the more Cartesian approach.

Also I was only able create 640x400 images, So I made a model. This was made around 2000. It as just 4 sheets of A4 acetate interlocking.

It would be great to make real solid 3D model. But I can't even think were to begin.

I haven't been doing much on this stuff for ages.
Looks like we are all going on an interesting path now.

The Cat is out the cradle

Hi With the Press release of someone else's 3D fractals this week, It's time to raise the profile of my own work in this field.

My first site (site down)

Next site 30/3/02 (site down)
