I struggle with this for a very long time and now I would like someone to explain to me the logic of the fact that the params,  copied and pasted, are different from those in the editor window. And I mean the coefs  that sometimes are negative on paper and positive in the editor window and vice versa.

In my fractal "Typhene" I made the full research .
I knew already that the triangles relate to the centerpoint and the four quarters of the editor window and that the Y and X of one triangle relate to the 0 of the same triangle.

I am not a mathematician, but I fail to see the logic where the coefs in writing are different from those in the editor window.

In 'Typhene' I posted my params, so you can see for yourself.  Next here I will give you the differences to my editor window:

Tx 1 : no differences
Tx 2 : the second O : -1.750193 / = positive in the editor window
Tx 3 : no differences
Tx 4 : the second O : -1 / = positive in the editor window
Tx 5 + PT : the second O :  resp. -2  ;  2 / = vice versa in the editor window
Tx 6 : the  second X and second O: resp. -0.258819 and -2 / =  both positive in the editor window 
                                                    and its PT : the second O : 2 / = negative in the editor window.
(both PT of tx 5 and tx 6 find themselves on the same location (exactly one on top of the other) in the editor window)

The location of the triangles in the editor window is:

Tx 1 :  X = right from and above the centerpoint  -  Y = left from and above the centerpoint
Tx 2 : entirely right from and above the centerpoint
Tx 3 : the same as Tx2
Tx 4 : entirely left from and above the centerpoint
Tx 5 : idem  / PT : left from and below the centerpoint
Tx 6 : the same  as Tx 5 / PT : the same as Tx 5
Final : X = right from and above the centerpoint - Y = left from and above the centerpoint

What don't I see or understand ????
When some one like me wants to practice Apo with params of other deviants, it's always a problem to achieve even a minimum of resemblance to the original fractal. Anyone here who experiences this problem too ????

Thank you for the help.

Hello fellow deviants !

May I introduce myself :

Born/raised/still living in Belgium (Flanders).
Profession: insurance business


I like quizzing and (making) creations in psp, terragen and apophysis.
I'm a deviant for 4 years but I was not around for a very long time. Because of the beautiful creations of Sjerz and Claudio 51 it began to itch. So I started Apophysis again and for real this time. In the process I got to know (the work of) other deviants and they are FANTASTIC, each and everyone of them.


To all the deviants who like my submissions, comment, favore them and even put me in his or her watchlist.
:iconthnxfavplz::iconrenekplz::icongrin--plz: Know that when I don't thank you individually every single time (for those who often favor or comment), that I don't feel grateful for the attention !!! The gratitude expressed here in my DeviantID is meant for all and everyone.

BIG :hug: 's, :iconhuggleplz: 's and :kiss:es for all you guys and girls !

I also do try to give a llama badge on every occasion when someone favors my entries and I quietly hope to receive some in return...:eager: (or maybe some :points: ? / may or may not traded for a llama badge ?)

Please yell if I forgot to give one back or even if you just want one.

See you soon and keep creating wonderful things !


For those who love the wonderfully made icons : (collect-icons) (isider)… (plz-database) (creativeness) (sulfura) (iytj)

What about this lovely avatar:
Belongs to deviant : XxSweetScarlettxX

I am not much of a writer (skills) and even lesser on any literary inspiration.
So you won't find that many interesting journals or critiques from my part.
I am sorry for that.
I will try though, as soon as I have anything worthwhile to say !

I am curious how other deviants can customize their ENTIRE PAGE ! It was said that dA does not allow that. Do the other deviants alter the html source code of their page ???
