Updated Script Pack by CabinTom Updated Script Pack by CabinTom
This script pack includes up-to-date versions of all of the scripts I've released thus far.

Changes:
- You can now cancel running the scripts by click the close button, and the script will not run
- Improved/standardized pop-up dialogue
- Scripts that include two versions (ex: Mystify) are now combined into one script with a pop-up option allowing you to choose which version you want to run. (I made this change because I was tired of having so many scripts to hunt through to find the one I wanted, so now my script collection is more compact.)
- The Chemical scripts are much much much improved (esp. what was formally known as Chemical - Pure). Now, a value of 1 for 'chemical amount' will produce a single linear/spherical transform, instead of two.
- Various small adjustments to starting variable values of various scripts
- If you run Halo/Pillars (and now Whirlpool and Droplets) they will no longer cause the transforms created by the other to rotate.

Bonus Script Notes:

This script has skipped the testing period I normally have simply because I don't feel it is all that special. It produces interesting results (sometimes) but is quite limited and I use it rarely. Despite this, I am sharing it because someone may indeed really enjoy it, and I can't be the one stealing that joy from them.

Please feel free to ask questions and/or leave comments and criticisms.

Here's a fix since you've worked so hard on these scripts, i dug up a fix for the calculatecolours issue.(note in future id just included the functions.asc in your script packs. I have no idea why iv never gotten it in any of my installs of apo scripts)

Functions.asc
This is the most up-to-date functions.asc script. To use copy tthe code, and paste it into your script editor in apo. Save the code as functions.asc. If the file already exists you may overwrite it. Next, open you options window, click the paths tab, and make sure your functions library is set to point to this functions.asc script.

------copy/paste past this line-----------
{ Functions and procedures for use
by other scripts. }

procedure CalculateColors;
{ Spreads the color parameters evenly }
begin
for i := 0 to Transforms - 1 do
begin
SetActiveTransform(i);
Transform.Color := i / (Transforms - 1);
end;
end;

Problem with just including the file is that it needs to be put in the right place, otherwise the function still doesn't work, and most people already have the file they just don't know how to correctly point to it.

This is a recurring problem, maybe you (or I) should write a tutorial on the solution!

Why do I get an error about calculatecolours with some of them? %-)

CabinTom Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2008   Digital Artist
The internal pathway to the funcitons.asc file is incorrect. calculatecolors isn't important though, so if you're getting that error, just open up the script and remove the line that includes "calculatecolors".

Hi Tom :wave: I am new at all of this and I don't really understand what scripts are for. Could you give me a quick description at to what they do?

CabinTom Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2008   Digital Artist
Well, basically a script will make a fractal for you of a specific "type". So instead of always having to build off of the initial random flames or from scratch, you can use a script to give you a head start in making something in particular.

How come some of the ones I downloaded (like the 3D Bubbles) comes up with a bunch of flames to choose from, and some of them (like the 3D Tunnel) will only morph the picture I am working on? Are they supposed to be like that?

CabinTom Featured By Owner Jan 11, 2008   Digital Artist
It's all in how they are scripted. Different script writers will make scripts differently, so if that's what they do, then yes, that's what they're supposed to do.

Ok :) Thanks! I am really enjoying doing fractals. I intended to do it only for backgrounds for my stuff because I usually do a flat black background. I have come up with some really interesting images :)

Thank you for sharing all you do, for almost beginners at apo, like myself, a lot can be learnt from reading what a script does to a fractal, well, that is how it is working for me. So I thank you for so much sharing. :hug:'s

Have you got any tips for getting good results with 'mystify' it always seems to come out reather dissapointing when I try to use it.
Reply
:iconcabintom:
CabinTom Featured By Owner Sep 21, 2007   Digital Artist
Use 'mystify' when you want to change the whole form of the fractal. It's especially good when you're doing a similar style repeatedly and you want to have some variation in form.
Use the 'overlay' when you want to add some detailing to a fractal.

The mystify script is basically meant to be run on something that is near completion.

when I use it it comes out really small and I have to zoom in. Is this normal?
Reply
:iconcabintom:
CabinTom Featured By Owner Sep 25, 2007   Digital Artist
Most of the time it is. If you're using 'zoom' try increasing the 'master scale' as well.

Thank you so much for posting these. I've been looking for some new scripts to try out to see just what more Apo can do. I am really looking forward to trying these out.

Because I am new to the fractal community (only been a few months), please let me know if there are any guidelines I should follow with these scripts. I don't want to use a script, gradient etc. without giving credit if/where it's due.

If you want you can just say which script you used (no need to link or anything). If you forget to do it though, don't worry, I just like people mentioning which script they used so that others can see what they could potentially do with the same script.

I have! :w00t: I'm just mildly confused... some scripts don't seem to do anything when I run them... and the Chemical one seems to turn everything into a big exploded mass that looks like the Death Star just blew up. Am I doing something wrong? Also the Halo one gave an animation preview for a few frames and then stops, and I can't figure out how to get what's in the preview onto the screen. :confused: Did I mention I really have no clue what I'm doing when it comes to scripts? ^^;

What version of Apo are you using? My scripts are made for 2.05 beta 2 and newer, so the versions that only allow up to 12 transforms will not like some of my scripts.
