I created my first 3D fractal rendering:
I’ve always been fascinated by fractals, but it’s been one of those things where I just think and daydream and don’t actually do anything. Hopefully, that can change now.
I got this program called Mandelbulb3D, which is used for just this kind of thing. It seems to have a bit of a learning threshold, but I think I’m off to a good start – and I’ve got a lot to explore.
The program also has functionality for rendering animations. The one to the side here is a preview of an animation of the render above. At the current size it takes about 45 seconds per frame, and it’s 150 frames, so I probably won’t see it done before it’s time to go to bed, but hopefully it’ll look cool.
If not, well, at least I’ve learned a little, and I have some new ideas to try for next time. Exciting.
