It's the time of year for gifts...

So here's a gift....

Oxidizer 0.3 is now available for download at Sourceforge, no more of that pesky CVS stuff.

The URL as always is

Ralf Flicker has been brave enough to use 0.3 from CVS, you can see what he has been up to at his website . His flames are quite lovely.

Is there any documentation or FAQ for Oxidizer?

Nope :0)

I'm in no way an expert on how the flam3 settings actually work so I don't feel I'm in a position to tell other people how they work either.

flame_draves.pdf is a good, if technical, guide to fractal flames, and Oxidizer follows the flam3 setting very closely.
Also once you associate xforms with triangles the Apophysis tutorials translate quite nicely.

My enthusiam for Oxidizer is growing and I’m happy to say that all my renders in the past week or so have been crash free. The flames are awesome and outshine the quality of other apps I’ve been messing with by a long shot. I’ve just about narrowed down the render settings for where I want to be with high res images for desktop wallpapers and am looking forward to taking my toying around with fractal flames to the next level. Oxidizer will help me get there in a big way!

It’s weird but I never would have found Oxidizer except for an odd Google search term in my stats. Following that led me to a couple of mentions on some other pages, and from there a few solid links to your site.

Sorry - I posted this to the Planet Genesis thread in error:

Dave, I downloaded both r_0_2 and r_0_3 and like the program to a point but there are way to many bugs on my Intel mac, no tutorials and no help menu.

The worst of all is that when you have the breeder open and make changes,more often than not either the editor freezez you out completely of else the mutation you send there wipes out all the other types you saved earlier.

I guess it’s like you say its down to the flame3 code which is all the more annoying. I just bought quadriium 2 which good program as it is annoys me for a number of reasons - namely that there are better programs on window that are freeware. Then when I looked at flame3 they wanted even more for that.

Sigh! I hate windows but it looks like I will need to be going there for apo if I’m ever going to generate flames with any success and without further damage to my wallet!

has anyone gotten the animate option to work. the render window with the thread progress bar pops up, but nothing happens. activity monitor shows that it’s doing stuff, but nothing ever happens.

using OSX 10.4.-

oh wait, never mind, it just takes awhile for the progress bar to register anything…

apparently the render time for still image is considerably faster than one frame of an animation…

is there a way to set the length of the animation? it only renders one frame and then stops.gices em the render time dialog...
using oxidizer 0.3

i have a core 2 duo MBP, but only one thread shows progress.

activity monitor shows complete usage of that core2duo though…

my sincere thanks to all who have had a hand in making this app possible! great work!
