Apophysis,

Two questions: First is that I have been having a 'List index out of bounds' problem with Apo 2.09 jk. It only happens to a few files that I migrated over from an old pc to the new. The second, I really like the 2.08 3D hack version. Only it won't render anything now. Any ideas on how to fix either problem?

Thanks,
Reply
:iconcmptrwhz:
cmptrwhz Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
List index out of bounds is from parameters calling for plugins or secondary params for variations like julian that have sub-params. that are not loaded into your program thru the usage of plugins.

as for your question on apo 3d I will need a more specific explaination of what is going on in order to give you a proper answer. what are the error messages you receive or anything that shows failure.

beeper52 Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2010
Not sure what to say... apo 2.08 3d hack seem's to be working now.

Understand the problem with the list inex out of bounds. Is there a work around that would resolve the problem?

:iconcmptrwhz:
cmptrwhz Featured By Owner Jun 15, 2010  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Looking at the text of the param file and see what plugins you need to load. And trying to ensure you use scripts that have been updated to work with the newer apo. Its a pain but once you catch them all it will be better. Also one other thing is if you have a faulty plugin you can get that error too. You can remove all the plugins from the folder and add them back one at a time till you find the one that causes the error.

beeper52 Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2010
Probably wouldn't hurt to remove all the plugins and download them again.

Hi,
I have Apophysis 3D Hack, Apophysis 2.09 and =Xyrus02's Apophysis 7.
I was just wondering how do you apply plugins to these programs? It is probably simple but I have tried everything and I still don't know how...

This program goes into a temp file and then vanishes. I can't put it on my desktop. It does not go into the program files. I saved it into Program files but then I can't open it. I have right-clicked on it but there is no way to save it.

having a duel core or quad core cpu is major bonus as you can then turn up the amount of threads in the options to equal the number of cores you have. this decrease you rendering time alot. The more Ram you have available to use the better off you are as then you can render without having to render in slices, slices take much longer to render. Of course the faster the cpu's are the better. If you have to settle for slower cpu's but you can get a duel core or quad core cpu then that is still worth taking.

yo, it's been a while i kind of abandond my DA for a while, but im back and it's been AGES since i've done any fractals, and have a question: I was working on a logo for a group i created and was going to make a fractal using the letters G and H layered ontop of one another using groups of rectangles, i used to know how to make them so that they did not interfere strongly with one another when their position changed. However, i cant remember how i did it and as of now when i make the second one it throws the first one off and so on if anyone has any tips that'd be nice its really driving me mad that i fell so out of practice after just 7-8 months

There is an Alphabet script by ~KeeperOfTheGood you could try to use. Other than that, I really can't think of anything I could possibly tell you that would be of any use. ^cmptrwhz also has a Cubeit Script for making squares. If you figure it out, may I suggest you make a tutorial. I would like to learn how to do that one myself. :nod:

Hi everyone! Im addicted to Apophysis but Im having issues with some of the basics. If you can help, I would be doing a happy dance.

1) How do you use Flamepacks?

2) How do you use plug ins?

2) Scripts I d/l and run just "create" scratches and globs and other ugly messes. How do I make the scripts perform the way the authors say they do?

3) I have 3Dhack and 2.08. Neither one shows me the tabs on the editor. My resolution is already set at highest which is 1440 on a widescreen monitor using Vista and changing it is the only solution I have found online. Any other suggestions to make this work for me?

Apophysis Featured By Owner Mar 27, 2009
1. To use flamepacks, you download and install them into the APO folder. There should be a folder called Parameters already installed with your program, so I unzip mine into that folder so I can find them easier. To load them, you go to file> open> and when the window pops up, you tell it where to look for the flame, or flamepack.

2.Plugins...Here is a link to a tutorial to help you install them--->[link] As for their use, you will have to experiment with them. Change the weights in the Transforms (triangles)

3. As for the scripts, that is a lot of trial and error also. Minor adjustments can make a huge difference. What are your settings for render set at? That also makes a huge difference.

4. As for your resolution, maybe you should lower it just a couple of notches. If you are referring to your monitor resolution, you may have the program opened too large that is why you cannot see the tabs. Let me know, so I can give you more suggestions. Hope this helps.

Hi folks, I'm a complete 'fractal virgin' and have only discovered Apophysis last week, and this group today, thanks to Claire Jones's Guide. It's good fun, except that I can't save the results! I have looked in the help section of both Apophysis 2.02 and 2.08 beta, but there's nothing that gives any problem solving solutions. When I click on 'Save', I get the window with the save-options and even when I don't change anything - so leave the parameters the way the programme makes them - I then get "Cannot save file" when I click 'save' again. This is very discouraging! Can you help? Thanks!!! :heart:

I use Windows XP Pro

PS I hope I don't need to be a member of this group - yet - in order to be helped! :pray:

The 2D plugins and 3D plugins need to be in two separate folders within the main Apophysis folder on your C: drive.

Also, make sure you title them "plugins" and "plugins3d" since capitals and spaces/hyphens/etc. seem to not make them readable.

Apophysis Featured By Owner Dec 18, 2008
All of the Apophysis betas are .exe files, or executable files. Basically they run without having to be installed and when they run, they should be linked to file folder in with your main Apophysis 2.02 folder.

You might want to check if your computer allows .exe files to be run or not.

Yes, in your options window, make sure you have PNG transparency set to "enabled," then when you render an image, make sure it ends with .png

Hey!

I'm having an issue with the "Apophysis Plugin Project's Newest Release" plugins. They seem to work fine in Apo 2.08 but when I try to open the editor in Apo 3D, I get an error:

"Access violation at address 004BFDF6 in module 'Apophysis206_3Dhack.exe'. Read of address 00000041."

Any idea?
