Howdy Nicolas and all, Thanks for your reply! > You can save the color settings (and/or the lights settings) separately as a csview file.Ooops <egg on red face>. Sorry 'bout that. Four little letters come to mind ... RTFM <LOL>! I'm sorry to say that I've not read through the manual. Chaoscope is such an easy program to play with that I just never thought it would even need a manual. Found it in the install directory, so I'll go read through it now <tail tucked between hind legs>.
> I know what you mean, point to a pixel on the screen, guess the position in the gradient. It would be impossible with Light and Plasma mode because you can have hundreds of different attractor layers bearing a different color each with different intensity, ...My goof again. I was thinking of a fractal image as a "solid" object (very complex, but solid) being rendered like a "skin" on a 3d wireframe. But, after some more thought, since I don't know the math and drawing techniques involved, this does not seem to be the case. Rather, fractal images are being drawn "live", on-the-spot (versus rendering a "skin" on a wireframe in 3D), as the equation is being executed, right? In this case yes, I can see that trying to determine where inside an equation that a specific pixel is located, in addition to where in the gradient and lighting chart it belongs ... would be next to impossible to do.
> The difference is no opacity means less memory used and faster rendering. Gotcha! Thanks <smile>. > I develop on C++ Builder 4.0 which is rather obsolete but does the job for now.I got pretty involved with Borland's Paradox and Delphi in the late 90's for a while but never used their C++ Builder. If it does the job you want it to do, that's all that matters <smile>.
> You could definitely be helpful with beta testing so remember to put your candidature forward when beta testing is announced! I'll be glad to help out ... especially after I read the manual <LOL>.
