Circular Flame Tutorial or Unpolar+GlynnSim by pillemaster Circular Flame Tutorial or Unpolar+GlynnSim by pillemaster
An advanced Tutorial for Apophysis [link] by Xyrus02.

You can learn some things about the use of Xaos and how to make a circular patterned flame!

-updated and corrected version -> thanks to ~crux-ansata. :new:
-the chinese translation by ~fengda2870 can be found here [link] :new:
-an extended version of the tutorial flame can be found here [link]
-the magic numbers are multiples of pi [link]
-the unpolar plugin can be found here [link]
-waffle plugin comes from here [link]
-GlynnSim plugin is posted here [link]

Have fun and please post your work!

I think I have it :? I moved Tx2 and it's Px2 to match the picture of the fX Editor at step 5.6 and have these co-ordinates:

 

Tx x = 1,0    Px x = -1,0

    y = 0,1         y =  0,1

    o = 0,1         o =  0,-1 

 

It looks right now.

:wave: I'm retrying this and am having major problems at Step 5.2. If I use the Tx & Px co-ordinates pictured I get thin curving lines and not the little rings flanking the cylinder dashes coming from Tx1. Went back through my archives and had exactly the same problem back then.

 

This was mentioned in a prior comment with no solution presented.

 

Here is what I have just prior to the Tx & Px Moves at Step 5.2:
