hi,

on Dec 5th Chris Thomasson posted some code in comp.lang.c to render a set of
images forming an "Experimental Power Stack Mandelbulb".  converted and imported
those into a df3, and rendered a view revolving around Y.


enjoy, jr.

I'll bet that would look cool as an isosurface

can post the code used if you want to take a gander.

Is it like an adjustable mandelbulb thing where the result can be animated, or
does it just make a single DF3?   I can take a look at the DF3, and maybe
someone can suggest a texture / uv map to use.   I would imagine a proximity
pattern would be the closest to what people do with raymarching / signed
distance functions.

It looks like the bad guy in a cheesy action movie.

a c program which outputs 256 frames/images.

there's not much by way of parameters, <x,y,z> dims and iteration count, I've
attached a source which is formatted (and slightly modified from the original),
compile with:

  $ cc -std=c99 ct.c -lm

the author recommends doubling the resolution.

the df3 is 256^3, build your own?!  :-)

fwiw, this is the BASH to do it:

# mkdf3-sh
for i in $(seq 0 255)
do
  ppmtogif -nolzw ct_anime_$(printf %03d $i).ppm |
  giftopnm |
  pnmtopng > frm_$(printf %03d $i).png;
  sync
done

df3util create 256,256,256 1 ctdata  && sync

for i in $(seq 0 255)
do
  df3util -w import ctdata y:$i frm_$(printf %03d $i).png
done

I'd be interested in the program writing more than just a single value
("colour"), but haven't the maths to divine where to .. interfere.

</grin>  (although the reference is straight over my head)

Why do you convert to gif first?  pnmtopng will read any of the netpbm 
formats.

heh, ignorance?  made me read the man page again, to be fair, it does say "reads
a portable pixmap" in the first sentence. :-)  and, re-reading, I see there's an
option to include a text chunk.  thanks!

also posted a strangely beguiling animation of (related) code:
