Experiments w. Layer techniqes by denise-g Experiments w. Layer techniqes by denise-g
This week we have a look at different layer techniques and I wished,
I could raise once the discipline and would work through a lesson from
beginning till the end without digressing right in the middle and going own ways.
In this case I like the result, but often enough I must start at the beginning again.
It's not rendered, you can see that in the parts where the gradient is not so smooth.
It's just an experiment.

Created with Ultra Fractal.
All comments are much appreciated and welcome.

FULL VIEW IS MUCH BETTER!

You know...I don't use a lot of different merge modes. Mainly just overlay...once in a while multiply or screen. I really have an aversion to Difference and Subtract...a few of those and you don't have a clue WHAT your gradient is doing, lol...

Good job on this pic. How's class?

Thank you so much.
Actually I like the different and subtraction mode, there are some cool effects with them,
but you're right, more then one or two layers of those and you'll have a big mess.

I'm in trouble with my homework in lesson 5. My old problem - I get lost hopelessly in these
infinite possibilities of orbit traps. I have tried it several times, but I am too tired to be
concentrated and creatively. I hope during the Easter days I can catch up some of the homework.

Well...here's my thing. It will probably take me a year or two to really incorporate the things she covers in class into my style, so I don't sweat it a lot. I will just go over the material for a while...it'll sink in.

I think, your style is not so far apart at all from Janets style.
She likes the art of Dan Kuzmenka and you also and I can discover
influence of it in your images and in Janets images. I've not found
my style till now, I've still to try so many things.
>>so I don't sweat it a lot...<< no need for it...this is my part...lol
I allways forget to have fun also with homework, that's why it's so
arduous...lol

You are welcome! I use random gradients on a lot of my fractals, usually because I don't know what colors I want till I see something that strikes me. :lol:

Since you have told to me about this function I use them relatively often.
With the colors it's just the same for me like you.
I think it's difficult to handle gradients with many different colors.
Yours are beautiful.

Wunderschön wie scharf alle details sind! Das Gold sieht sehr hübsch aus auf dem Turquise Blau! Was meinst du mit nicht gerendert? Bei US macht man doch einfach jpg's oder?

Wenn ich in UF mein Bild geöffnet habe, dann kann ich das Bild in die Zwischenablage kopieren,
über Datei/Kopieren und danach kann ich den Inhalt z.B. in einen Texteditor einfügen, dann habe
ich den Code, oder aber ich öffne z.B. PS und füge hier den Inhalt aus der Zwischenablage ein,
dann habe ich das Bild in PS. Das ist aber nicht gerendert, würde ich dieses Bild rendern in den
abmessungen 800x1100 pixel bräuchte mein rechner etwa 9 bis 10 stunden dafür, das war mir zuviel.
Nach dem rendern wären aber die farbverläufe, wie z.b. unten links im bild, wesentlich sauberer und
weicher, du würdest die linien nicht sehen. es gibt bilder, die sehen nach dem rendern genauso aus
wie nach dem exportieren, aber meistens lohnt sich das rendern auf jeden fall.

Ach das wusste ich gar nicht. Dann muss man also bei UF auch so viel Geduld haben und herausfinden wie die besten Render Einstellungen sind.. oder gibt's da wenigstens nur eine?

denise-g Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2006
Also die Renderzeiten sind sehr unterschiedlich, das hängt von der Formel ab und hier auch, wie tief du rein zoomst etc., aber man muß nicht so lange rumfummeln bis man die besten einstellungen zum rendern gefunden hat, das ist eigentlich ziemlich klar und einfach. und wie gesagt, für ungeduldige, du kannst das bild direkt exportieren, ohne es zu rendern.

ich habe apo jetzt auf 1280x1024, Qualität 2000, Filter 0.6, Oversample 2 eingestellt. Meistens ändere ich die Grösse dann in PSP auf 1024x768 oder so ähnlich für dA. Die render dauern dann etwa 30-40 Minuten. Ich behalte ja die flames und kann später immer noch ein zweitesmal rendern wenn ich das bild als karte brauchen will.
Du, stell dir vor! Heute hatten wir Sonne (aber Bise).

was ist Bise? bei uns regnet es schon wieder und das hochwasser wird immer schlimmer. der rhein in düsseldorf hat auch schon die ersten auen überschwemmt. eine zweite hinter einem kleinen damm gibt es noch bevor die häuser anfangen. naja schaun wir mal. wir haben es noch gut, aber die im norden brechen selbst die rekorde vom jahrhundert hochwasser 2003. schlimm.
