The idea was to implement a simple 2 dimensional L-system. Start with one branch, and add at its end a certain number of branches at a certain angle, rescaled by a certain factor. But Ultra Fractal is not very suited for L-systems, because it works "pixel by pixel" (the same algorithm is applied to each pixel). So given a pixel, the algorithm has somehow to guess to which branch it is closest, instead of applying the L-system algorithm straightforwardly. That's why some of the branches seem to disappear when they cross.<br />I like the first tree, not a usual flame.<br />And great blog, btw.Samhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/03631513672156985312noreply@blogger.com
