    Using Apo Flames in Art Rage3 SP

    I want to share with you one of my lately experiments,
    working with Apophysis and making the composition
    in Art Rage 3 SP.

    Is very simple and the possibilities are multiples of compositions.

    For those who don't know yet ,
    Apophysis is a freeware Windows program for designing and rendering fractal flames .
    You can download it here .

    It can be a very rewording program but need time to be discovered
    either ways , by trying it and by the tutorials and books.

    First of all then I used this flame image to do my composition,
    You are free to use it too and make your experiments.

    If you have interesting results and like to share you are welcome to show
    them in this thread.

    Now I will simply show the "how to" procedure.

    I did the choice of the size form , color and texture
    of the canvas in Art Rage in function of the image
    that I intended to use.

    I did import image to layer
    and begin to create my selection image,
    because of the shapes in the image I did the choice
    of a circle.( The Selection tool, page 56 and 82 in the AR3 Manual)

    I first copy the selection that I created
    and pasted in a new layer.

    Here are the image of the selection, you can use it if you like
    to do your own image ; of cause, you have to transform all the images
    to create your personal composition.

    From this unique selection (In function of the size I make the choice of the PNG to upload but you can transform it as you like.

    I duplicate and transform each layer by resizing and rotation
    and made the choice of the number of layers in function of how
    they fit in the image.

    At this moment I did the choice of moving the center of the first
    layer and transform it in function of the other selections.

    My first layer became like that :

    After transforming the first layer and
    the multiple circle selections,
    the image looks like that, still not finished yet for me
    but all the raw elements are there.

    I finished the composition by experimenting the
    different blending for the different selections,

    also I duplicated the first layer and used the
    highlight mode for the blending between the two layers.

    The final composition looks more interesting to me.

    Hope that will help !

    Hey Dani,

    Really cool use of Apophysis. I like the end result. Reminds me of something a queen would hang against the palace wall to impress guests! Beautifully done

    I agree with you, the possibilities are endless. I also like to combine AR with different types of other programs. Also used AR+Apo for this image: http://www2.ambientdesign.com/forums...ad.php?t=16505

    Regards.

    I am glad you appreciate the tutorial Yvan and thanks
    to add your tutorial which is a complementary and
    related also to Apo and Art Rage.

    Hehe, I never imagined that a queen can hang against
    his palace wall such an abstract image but I may be wrong,
    I rather imagine the composition on the walls
    of very young people with an open mind
    to modernity.

    Mmmmm, I like it!
    It has a beautiful touchy-feely tactile quality that I love - very fine work indeed.
    I have played with Apopyhsis, but haven't combined it with AR.

    Oooh, er - and extra thanks for making the tut!!!
    You have inspired me to go and give it a try
