Rendering with Mandelbulb 3D by raysheaf Rendering with Mandelbulb 3D by raysheaf
This tutorial is for big, hi-res renders with Mandelbulb 3D, how to deal with noise, artifacts, settings etc. Also it helps with professional lighting, big enhancement in PShop and more things. Even for those who only render in low res, this tutorial will teach how to get maximum impact for their images. You'll find also the rendering settings for my Second DD :heart: [link] , and how it is composed in PShop over background image.
Please download the ZIP file.

it is like if the antialiasing option (if there is one) is not activated.

Thank you very much for this tutorial,

i have a problem of noise though, ive been doing exactly what you said , but i still have obvious noise on my render, is it true that with mandelbulb you have to render your image at a huge resolution , and then resize it to your final ratio?

forgive my English, and sorry if i missed something obvious here.

Hi, well didn't check the recent versions of the program, as I lost interest in it. No you don't need to render bigger and than downsize to your needed resolution, render it as it should be. This trick was sometimes advised for another program - Apophysis yet I never needed it there. Keep in mind that there will be some differences between your small size render at say 1024Xsomething and the big render, that's how the program works, but they can be compensated with future PShop editing. As for the noise, I don't know. Some formulas are just more noisy than others. This can be a real pain in the ass.

I'm not sure if you explained the Calc- / shadow trick to do the effect on the image above ;)

I asume you reffer to the preview image and header of my tutorial. This is done with PShop filter just to put some emphasis, that it deals with pixels ;-)

bib993 Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2011  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Oh really? I thought you did it with Mandelbulb3D. Try it: instead of hitting the Calculate 3D button, use the Calc- button (for a preview), then calculate shadows. You will get similar results.

:iconraysheaf:
raysheaf Featured By Owner Apr 29, 2011  Professional General Artist
Hah, yes I do use a lot the Calc button. Also once I entered such a parameter in one formula, that at least on my computer it refused to calculate so fine and got similar blocky effect. Thanks, will try your suggestion!

Thanks my friend! For classic 2D fractals it's full of books and tutorials covering almost every formula from Koch to Kleinian Cusps, but Mandelbulbs are relatively young and lack lot of info. That's why our everyday experiments can come to help for each-other.
