Branching Off by HalTenny Branching Off by HalTenny
This is using one of my favorite Apophysis gradients, 036_solid-sky. You can get the Apo palettes that have been converted to FE here [link] . (by *Pharmagician!)

Made with Fractal Explorer

Edit: I rendered this over with a higher iterations setting and it looks much better. I get ahead of myself sometimes and as I learn this program, I obviously learn how to make improvements. So this is much better than the original.

In any case,quality is questionable.I noticed the loss of clarity in some parts of image
which is probably impossible to replace.It's superb piece really but from the technical
point of view software can't offer a better solution or provide desired effect!!!

The nature of this program is so different, perhaps if I knew it better... Thank you!

I agree with you,quite complex because of all these plugs
that must be subsequently downloaded and inserted.I don't
like it,takes to much time:(I wish to learn how to work
whit 3D Multiprocessor Fractal Engine(Incendia)I love the
animations but rendering takes too much time as well:frustrated:

You're welcome!!!
Best Regards
Robert

Nice! Can you increase the viewing size to see more detail?

I'm not real familiar with FE yet so I don't know if I'm going to answer this correctly. On this particular piece, viewing larger or zooming in would just make it less detailed and start blurring. If I raised the iterations, I would get finer detail. It's rendered at Max iterations set to 120. If I bump that to 150 or 160 the branches do get finer. Much higher than that and it starts looking like noise at 1280 resolution. I was so happy to finally get these shapes that I didn't pay much attention to the amount of detail at the time! When I saw your message, I took another look at it and raised the iterations to 160, did a new render (only about 4 minutes at 2880) and it does have much more detail. Have a look in my stash to compare [link]

Cool. I posted a comment at your stash image. Please don't take my previous comment as criticism of the piece. It wasn't meant to be.

Oh absolutely not, I knew it wasn't meant that way! Most of the time I set the viewing image size to 1280. Particularly if Downloading is turned off. The large image size was to help smooth the piece, It would defeat the purpose on that particular piece to allow a larger view as it just gets blurry and less detailed. Not always the case but it was this time.
