"Rain Joy".

Ok, then.

Actually.. your creation here brought to mind that of snow falling, in and amongst the fir trees. That was my first thought and impression.

(Sidenote: According to google translate, "Snow Joy" is "Joy Neige".)

"There are three renders merged in here, one from a different angle."

Good good job on merging the three renders.

And that information will save me some hair pulling. 'Cause.. coincidentally, while posting to the Offtopics.. came across some Christmas fractal wallpapers that used the same tutorial, or, similar anyways.. and kinda got inspired to maybe give it a go.

With.. wait for it.. some pen tool stuff, too!

We'll see how receptive my pc and lack of a video card is to the creative idea.

That nonsense and drivel of mine aside..

I like the colour gradient you used. (Wondering if this is a default gradient or is it a custom one of yours?)

Composition is strong.. but, on that note.. I do wonder how things would look/change if instead of filling 2/3rds of the frame with your fractal.. you dialed it back some and left some more space?

/\ Yep.. that's me typing out loud, nothing more.

That said..

I am still going to go with.. this makes for a very nice Christmas DT. Thanks for sharing this one with us. :o)

Les, looking at the tutorial, C-91 gives instructions for colour speed to give a natural look. then 'changed the gradient'. I can't remember what I did exactly, but seem to remember I was having trouble getting something that didn't look odd!

I assume I could see the gradient if I turned on the laptop and found the flame, but don't know if it would identify it for me.

I agree, a little more space... maybe not so dark, though.

Wellll.. I did have a thought, no idea if it would work.

Parameters.. in particular, this section:

<*palette count="256" format="RGB">

Copy and paste.. substituting it into one of your parameters.. see if it works?

... ...

This is from a flame I am working on.

658_Sunny_Field is the name of the gradient.

I had to re-select the 'Sunny Field' gradient (was a random choice) to figure some stuff out on the fly. As it was not the original gradient for the flame that I grabbed the parameters from.

The stuff to figure out was:
1) Why was no name showing in the information field for the gradient?
2) And why was the gradient itself not displaying at the top of the drop down menu/in the information field?

So.. am guessing the original gradient that I was working with for the flame.. which was a default one.. must have changed to a custom one due to changes/adjustments in Color Speeds. And unless 'you' save it as a gradient (and naming it, of course) it would..

Heyyyyy.. more stuff figured out!

I've made changes to Color Speeds before.. saved the parameters, but, not the gradient itself.. and reopened the flame for further tweaking with no hiccups.


Default, custom gradient.. it shouldn't matter and the above workaround in substituting that part of the parameters should be ok/work.

... ...


Not sure. I am confuzzling meself here.

Need to test it some more when my mind is more awake.

Hey! Look over there!

I'll give it a try when Chaotica has finished chuntering... it has another wp coming up (I hope it won't take much longer). If I get impatient enough I'll just go with it, as it looks fine...

Not sure I understand the whole gradient / palette system, but that's for me to learn about, I guess!

I like this one best, Sandra, just partial to the cooler color palette...and let me take this opportunity to wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas.
