Inspiration Station last week focused on the current big cheese and uber-genius, `XyrusWorx
for his incredible work in developing Apophysis 7x and many of it's plugins. Apophysis 7x is awesome, it's modern, it's smooth ... It is the Ferrari of fractal software ...
But if 7x is a Ferrari, there must be a Model T out there somewhere.
There is ...
When I started making fractals, a few years ago, I started by installing Apophysis 2.02. There were no post transforms, no xaos, no final transform and only 2 dimensions ...
In the intervening years all the things that Apo users take for granted and that make our artwork so awe inspiring were developed or thought of by one man ... ~Zueuk
Every time a new Apo was released something new had been added and we have him to thank for pretty much all of it. He even invented the julian variation !!!
You may be wondering why Peter would spend so much time developing all these things, I think a look in his gallery will answer the question for you.
His work on tiling and tesselation is probably the best you will see anywhere on deviantArt, he even developed a few plugins to help with that.
If I'd never heard of Benoit Mandlebrot, I would swear that ~Zueuk
had invented the fractal.
The Art ...
The Plugins ...
The Fun ...
is an Apophysis Legend ... NO!!! He is THE Apophysis Legend.
So Why Are You Still Here ??? Go to ~Zueuk
