Apophysis Tweaking Guide by C-91 Apophysis Tweaking Guide by C-91
REMEMBER: IT'S A GOOD HABIT TO CREDIT YOUR SOURCES. WHENEVER YOU'RE TWEAKING, STATE CLEARLY WHOSE PARAMS YOU'VE PICKED. IT'S CORRECT, POLITE AND GRATIFYING. :heart: :heart: :heart:

:bulletgreen: Tutorial for Apophysis (it's not exactly a tutorial, so it should work on every version!)
:bulletgreen: Beginners guide.
:bulletgreen: Minimum knowledge of the software required.

(With minimum knowledge I mean you have to know something about xforms, adjustment and editor windows. The bare essentials. :D)

My second tutorial! :dummy: Even if calling it "guide" would be more appropriate. :shifty:
This is my answer to the debate whether the parameters sharing kills creativity or not.
It's my point of view and way to work whenever I got any interesting flames in my hands. Take it as a suggestion and not as the absolute truth, you can work in the way you prefer the most. :D

I want to thank `SuicideBySafetyPin and =f-ix, who chose to share their work with me, and all the people who knew I was writing this tutorial and wished me all the best. Thank you guys! :hug: :hug: :hug:

Hope you enjoy and hope it'll help! :dummy:

:bulletblue: If you notice anything wrong and/or want to suggest something, please send me a note and I'll try to fix as long as I can.

:bulletred: This is the tutorial I'm talking about ---> Tutorial - Gnarls by ^SaTaNiA

Nice tutorial, and it's good to see that I'm not alone in just playing around and experimenting. I still have a lot to learn, that's for sure. But from what you wrote above, it seems to be the way I am presently tweaking. 

But one question please: near the end of your first tweak, you say "....I modified some features in the adjustment window and added a little blur in the 2nd xform using post_falloff2 ...." Could you expand on these changes a little better. I really like the final fractal, and it has an "air" that is what I'm trying to achive sometimes. It seems much more clearer, yet you say that you added a "little blur". 

What am I missing, except for me to get back to tweaking more :)?

Thanks.

This should be done even for other programs, but I don't know how to. :lmao:
Anyway, I'm glad you appreciate it! :love:

yes, it would be nice... usually most fractal programs do have some beginner tutorials out there, but it can be tough to find them all... the tutorials folders in some of the groups help, but they don't always have every one you might want.
But I appreciate anyone who takes the time to make any tutorial, even for things I don't use... takes a lot of work to make a good one, and it shows people really care about helping others get started!
