Crucial threads script by IDeviant Crucial threads script by IDeviant
Finally, I have it - the script based on my iconic 'No escape'. This idea arose during a discussion with ~zweeZwyy: I was identifying the crucial elements of those parameters when I suddenly thought "Hey, I could script this!" Replicating editor movements using scripts proved... painful. As for trying to nail the coefficients, well... An addition to the basics is a 256-point randomised bright gradient for chromatic interest. If you don't like it, just replace with your gradient of choice! If you really like it, see here for a method of making it available to other scripts, or simply save it as a stand-alone. Get weaving!

Thank you for this pretty script and for the instructions on using the Fine Gradient Procedure! I like a lot of colour variety in my fractals, so I'll be using Fine Gradient a lot. Your Crucial threads script is not the easiest to "tweak," I think. I enjoy a challenge, though, and ended up creating this with it: Nightfall. The effort was worth it! I am interested in seeing what other people create with this script.

Indeed, the script wasn't really meant for tweaking - the randomising parts were built on trial-and-error. The idea is just to keep pressing F9 until you get something half-decent. Or you could add a batch wrapper...

Oh, I see. I'd like to learn how to make batch scripts and that kind of thing.

Here's a 'batch wrapper' for the script:

DeleteFile(INSTALLPATH + 'apophysis.rand');
for k := 0 to Options.BatchSize - 1 do
begin
ShowStatus('Processing ' + IntToStr(k + 1) + ' of ' + IntToSTr(Options.BatchSize));

---SCRIPT GOES HERE---

Flame.Name := Options.RandomPrefix + DateCode + '-' + IntToStr(BatchIndex);
BatchIndex := BatchIndex + 1;
SaveFlame(INSTALLPATH + 'apophysis.rand');
end;
ListFile(INSTALLPATH + 'apophysis.rand');
UpdateFlame := False;

This uses whatever value you have entered under Settings, Random, Batch size.

Interesting effects when the color symmetry is made negative, especially when it's a decimal negative. :D

how you get all the different colours?

When I run the script it stays monotone.
