I know Chaotica as a means of rendering Apophysis flames more quickly.
I see also that people can make fractals with Chaotica alone.
For some time I've tried to use Chaotica to create flame fractals since I can't use Apophysis on the Mac.
So far I've been completely flummoxed as I couldn't see what to do to create and control new flames.
The instructions in the help files were impossible to use because the tools mentioned were just not there, as I had observed for quite a time.
I thought that maybe it was the Mac version that was causing the problem.
I suddenly thought just now that I might need a newer version, which I have downloaded, and I see that at last everything is in position.
Now I can try it out and hopefully make something all alone.
I realise this isn't very interesting to anybody but I like to express myself from time to time.
