Whirlpool Script by CabinTom Whirlpool Script by CabinTom
Thanks for stopping by to check out this newest Apophysis script release.

As can be seen, this one is called 'Whirlpool'. Like Pillars and Halo before it, this script is animation controlled, but admittedly it's not as versatile. Actually, that's probably because it's the predecessor of the other 2 scripts. I created this script because I didn't like how unpredictable other spiral scripts are (sometimes the work, most of the time I find they just completely screw up the fractal). I personally don't have much advice for this one, except perhaps that you should be quick with the spacebar to stop it when you see something you like.

Now here are some examples of what I've created:

Now let's get the beta testers' impressions!

one-tough-one [link] said:

"I thought it was a really good script...

Very easy to use and made some interesting fractals...

My tips on this would be to try using negative numbers and just play...

Also if you mess with the 2nd and 3rd triangle or with the last 4 (32-36) you can get some interesting things

going on :)"

What he's created:

LadyLyonesse [link] made the following remarks:

"I have had some reservations about this script. I found it to have a very similar effect as the Destiny script.

Rather rigid, limited in scope. Pillars was far better.
Below are the variables I thought worked best.
Variables
Scale 0.2 - 0.9
Rotation 2 - 10
Weight 0.3 - 9
Some of the plastics work OK, as well as most of the randoms generated by Apo. Unfortunately, it seems that flames based on a 'circular' script, such as spirals, julias, discs, dragon or fairy eggs didn't give me too much.
I also had problems combining it with other scripts, whereas most of your other work I could add script upon script."

(Note: She has some very valid criticisms here, so you should be aware of them when using the script.)

What Kat has made:

The newest tester, LadyBlacksword [link] sent me the following assessment:

"I prefer Apophysis z+beta2, so this is based of how Whirlpool works with that.
If you like "line spirals" this one is very addictive.
It works best with flames that have defined shapes already. I got some really cool results when using this script after using ToAPP's tubes script. I found the stock input numbers to be just about perfect, but found that you'll need to play with the "transform color" settings on transforms 1 thru 3 if you don't like the flat look. Also, don't move anything except transforms 1/2/3 unless you want a hazy mess, as with most spiral based scripts. Aside from that, this is a very flexible script, despite the fact that it seemingly just makes line spirals. As usual with any script by CabinTom, the animation based interface gives you a ton of control, and if you don't get what you want on the first shot, you can hit the undo button and try again, as it's effects will turn out the same every time if you start with the same flame."

Sometimes 'being quick on the spacebar' can create some random and accidentally fantastic works of art. Looking forward to playing with this one just to see what happens...

Thanks again for sharing so freely of yourself and your work. :)

Have you tried Halo? In the limited time I've had to experiment with the 3D hack, I though Halo was interesting.

I just needed to stop by and tell you what a PHENOMENAL script this is! It gives me wonderful control, and it produces truly gorgeous spirals when used well. I have been totally wrapped up in this for HOURS. Thank you so much!

Sometimes I get muddy results, especially when using default values. I learned to increase the weight.

I'll post some images as soon as I have them rendered.

CabinTom Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2007   Digital Artist
I've seen some of them. I think you've got better results there than I've been able to achieve!
Do you suggest a different suggested weight value?

I think 8 works better. I have at times used 10, but I think that's not quite as good. Thanks for the kind words.
