Mandelbulb 3D creates amazing 3D scenes with unique recursive details. The complex fractal patterns can take on organic or more “hard bodied” looks. It’s even possible to mix the two styles together! The Mandelbulb 3D software is free, relatively compact yet powerful. However, the program has a wealth of options and functions, which are quite daunting to learn. In this tutorial, Scappin Matteo, who is an expert at using M3D answers frequently asked questions from users. He demonstrates solutions step by step and shows some vivid fractal artwork in the process. Who is this tutorial for? New and existing Mandelbulb artists who have come across hurdles during the creative process. Professional artists : building special effects for movies Game artists : creating unique assets for their 3D game settings Artists curious about M3D who want to learn it's potential Content Solving and managing noise problems in Mandelbulb 3D Working with heightmaps Creating a water plane in an M3D scene. Combining and de-combining formulae explained Integrate fractals with props (from heightmaps) Tips to speed up finding attractive fractal scenes Discovering a fractal cave Tricks with fog effects Lightmaps Rescuing unsaved formulae Requirements Mandelbulb 3D software Free (PC only) Tutorial Presenter : Scappin Matteo Matteo studied computer science in northern Italy. At the age of ten he became fascinated by fractals (in 2 dimensions) and in particular by the mandelbrot fractal. He was fascinated by how such mathematics could generate an entire abstract universe. When studying programming (C ++, Processing) he discovered the topic of recursion; the love between Matteo and fractals was born! One night in 2012, for the first time, he saw a video of a 3D fractal showing a fantastic world, without limits. It was designed by mathematics and interpreted by humans. He was speechless. From his first simple animations, Matteo has since come a long way, studying and understanding fundamental concepts such as lighting, shadows, reflections, colors and the emotional impact they have on human beings. He's now one of the most respected artists in the Mandelbulb 3D community and is regularly commissioned for commercial projects.
