Some noisy tests
@gaeel https://mathr.co.uk/kf/manual.html#formulas are the ones in Kalle's Fraktaler 2 (which I am the current maintainer/author of). Most were added by Karl (the original author) based on suggestions from various members of FractalForums (historically .com, currently .org).
But these are all structured like $z→f(z)+c$ (because it needs this format for deep zooming with perturbation rendering), while putting the $c$ elsewhere in the formula can be interesting too.
Also, KF doesn't do formulas with division or functions like $\sin(z)$.
@mathr hey thanks!
I also saw your reply on the Discord
I'm thinking of selecting a bunch of functions and then using words as seeds for the function loops, so I could make pictures associated with words
Not sure how I'd use them, but it's the idea I'm playing with right now
@mathr And yeah, I got some interesting shapes messing with putting c elsewhere, like (z+c)²+c and z^(1+|c|*3)+c
@gaeel complex power to real number like your second example is problematic as it is multi-valued (not a function). Picking just one branch (eg the principal square root branch for power 3/2) can lead to visible discontinuities...
@mathr Not sure I understand what the problem is
I like what the results look like
@gaeel a pity! from the symmetry I guess at power 4 stuff?
@mathr Yeah, probably
I haven't deleted the function, but I need to go through all of the functions I've written to find which one(s) it was
@gaeel make your tool write every setup as you render.
@floatvoid Currently it prints the setup to console, but I should make it output a text file too
@gaeel run it from a script that pipes to a log file. zero work win!
@floatvoid Ahahah, I guess? The log file is really spammy though because it's always printing status updates
@gaeel great! not power 4, sorry for the red herring. this is also called Tricorn or Mandelbar
@mathr No worries! I'd already gone down that path when you mentioned it, so no harm done!
