One of my original apo images (see below) was used in three blended layers in Ultra Fractal 5.04 (each containing unique object transformations, distortions, magnification and rotation) to create this novel image in a process I will now call The UF 3 layer Blender.

Created from this previous image:

Disc Julian #12: Path to Enlightenment (UF0358)
by barrowda

which was created for the Disc Julian tutorial by Fiery Fire in the Apophysis Tutorial Fun group in Apophysis v7x15 , with added gradient flare in GIMP, and final render in UF. Best if viewed larger.

    Gorgeous work of art! Splendid piece. I need to learn how to do this. :o)

  • Thank you, Bunny!! I really flipped when this turned out so well. Opens up endless new possibilities to recombine older images in very pleasing ways. I’m most happy that you need Apo and UF to get something really appealing. Glad you like it!! :o)))

    this is wonderful David….another clever creation….
    I haven’t played much with UF yet….I do love the reflections though….I think I might have to do some tutorials on UF….more homework…. :)

  • Thanks, Pam!! I feel that this image alone was worth all the time I’ve spent learning to work with UF (nine months or so) and this particular technique is allowing me to combine images from all the other programs I’ve used before – the possibilities are truly endless (of course, there were already infinite possibilities with each program-lol )….

    Sigh… one other had 3, the rest were lower.. I am sooo dispappointed in the voting turnout.. maybe there was something I should have done to push for more activity… this was my first time..Personally speaking, I would have thought you would win!!
