Thanks for this, it really demonstrates the impact that Xaos can have (i'd not played around with it enough previously) Here's my first attempt using your technique, starting from scratch, it's not quite right, but i'm gonna keep trying. [link]

Thanks for this FractalDesire, Xaos is baffling to me. I did your bipolar tutorial & that was interesting. Just haven't tweaked it well enough to post a render from it yet.

Thank you for your explanations. I am nut to work out the logic of xaos and will have to keep on finding out what's best for each of my flames by trial and error. Going from transform to transform and from xaos to xaos. I envy you that you can figure out these things in your head.
