I also see nothing unless I add FLATTEN to XF2. This shows (approximately) the shape. What definitely doesn' work is the cylinder step. I obtain some stripes but only when moving it left and a bit up. But there stays a large vertical blurred parasite stripe so that the fractal is inusable.

Help, please! :}

I'm also seeing a blank flame, the moment I change the weight of xform 2 to 15. The maximum weight for xform 2, where I can actually see anything, seems to be around 1.5.

Here are my parameters, after following the instructions as far as xforms 1 and 2, exactly. Changing the gamma, brightness, and frequency has a little effect (if I up them all, I see what looks like a starfield with approximately the same shape as what's shown above). Flattening xform 2 didn't help. What am I doing wrong?

Many thanks!

For some reason above my understanding I keep getting a problem with ALL tutorials, I follow them but as soon as I have to put the weight to more than 1 everything disappears. I'm a total beginner to apophysis and have tried to find out why this keeps happening but I can't find anything to indicate why. I follow the tutorials through step by step but I always end up with a blank document or something grainy as shit and doesn't resemble the original work at all. Can you or someone else please help me!

One small note:  I found that it was impossible to get any image without adding flatten = 1 to Xform 2...not sure why.  Anyways, thanks for the awesome tutorial!  :)

hello,

I tried your tutorial but my preview image is always extremely dark. When I render with medium brightness levels I get this -

i.imgur.com/qFSCgor.jpg

and with maximum brightness levels I get this -

i.imgur.com/KGypSZO.png

in preview (50 quality) it looks only like some few dots around the screen.

How can I improve the fractal range? I adjusted colors with high randomization of color and color speed on transformed, with gradient frequency. my previews looks nothing like yours!

It's not working! :( After Step 2 (and adding x form 2) my flame disappeared. I played a little rotated the x forms, played a little bit around and got something similar. But when I add a third x form the flame disappears again. Step 3 you tell us to move the post transform up but how much? And what do you mean by resizing with 1:3 ratio? Where's such a setting? I only can scale my triangles (110,125, 150, ...). Xform 4 ... "just fix the post transform coordinates"?? I don't understand. :(

Could you please send me your param I'll check it out and see what is going wrong on your flame.
the 1:3 ratio is Y axis lenght = 1 and the X axis lenght = 0.33 you can set this with the transform tab.

In fact you've made something like the log ! 
You only need to used Log as a FinalFX to make this kind of flame...
For the overall aspect try to add some variations to the differents Xforms ... 
Try to use Radial blur on the Xform 1 or 2 you will see ;)

Thanks for this fantastic tutorial! I was very frustrated with apo (only recently started using it), but now I'm having fun tweaking my splits.

One thing, I was having problems with transforms 3 and 4, even after reading the explanation of the 1:3 ratio.

Then I set the cylinder variation to 0.075 (the tutorial says 0.25-0.75), and suddenly all was well. Just wondering whether it is a typo, or if I did something so weird elsewhere that putting the wrong value worked (or I am totally confused).

:iconsatania:
SaTaNiA Featured By Owner Oct 22, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
this value depends of the size of your Xform.
The more your Xform is big the less it need to be set ;)

With a 0:1y 0:0.3x I'm using 0.5 most of the time :)
