I've created a blog post with example flames that show a tweaking process. It may help beginners who think they should throw away their params. Don't! Sometimes params need a bit of tweaking.
https://chronologicaldot.wordpress.com/ ... ee-styles/

I've decided to post a copy of it here because it's easier to copy the flames from the code block.

====

Sometimes it's nice to see how a fractal is tweaked from start to finish. Below is an example of one of my own fractals that started with a simple idea, looked like junk at one point, and with some tweaking came out really nice. How do you tweak a fractal? That deserves a full length feature (which I may do later), but the gist of it is knowing balance. Fractal flames are created with points that are sent from variation to variation to be modified. The best-looking fractals are those that perform a balancing act: sending points to the places they are mots needed while still supporting the finer details of the fractal. Remember: even invisible transforms receive points and it is important that they are provided them depending on what role they perform (usually some intermediate transform). The balancing is all done by the Xaos (notably: JWildfire 1 labeled these as "Rel. Weights", which is more descriptive but not common terminology).

My example fractals are meant to be analyzed in JWildfire. Modifications include the transform gamma color, transform gamma speed, transform pre-affine transformation matrix, transform pre-affine transformation matrix, global gamma, global brightness, and variation parameter changes.

My examples modify more than one transform at a time sometimes.

Let's declare and dispel a few possible myths first:

Myth: A good fractal flame depends on its gradient. That's not true. Having a balanced gradient can make a very nice fractal, but even monochrome fractals can be balanced by the black and white background. It's usually easier to make a prettier fractal depending on the gradient, but don't assume that just having a good gradient will make a good fractal. Each fractal has a gradient where it shines best, but even here, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder.

In my example fractal, I use the same gradient the entire way through.

Myth: There are fractal bases that are junk starting points. There are starting points that are difficult to work with, but every flame can be used for something, even if it means blurring it and sticking it in the middle of a julia. I don't often find parameters that prove so difficult to work with that I tossed them. Sure, you don't always have a gold winner, but don't toss your params until you can see at least some of their potential.

To understand how to best tweak a fractal flame, you first need to understand how it is constructed. For this, you usually have to follow the connections in the Xaos, but that's unintuitive and non-linear. An easier way to see how things work is usually to pick a transform, move it around, and see what changes, but unless you have a good understanding of what a particular variation is doing, this won't always help. To aid you in understanding mine, I've included the base and some steps used in the building process so you can see the foundation.

Below is the code for the base. After seeing a tutorial by tatasz, I couldn't resist making a triangle, even though I didn't bother to read the tutorial (silly me - I probably should have). In any case, we have a basic triangle pattern whose point distribution will need to be tweaked later on for balance. Make sure that, whenever you add, remove, or modify another transform, you come back and adjust your other transforms appropriately. Just because you make one look good at one point doesn't mean it won't make a mess later on.
Code:

Here we get the first early stage (shown in the picture at the top). Here we begin our serious tweaking. The shape was rather difficult to get something I liked out of, but julia is always a good go-to.

Messing with the shape. Julias can make some cool effects in the middle when you have a complicated transform there. I tried this approach first.

I discovered a nice blurring effect with post-crop. It needs some further tweaking for balance, but it looks nice.

The central blur was nice, but it wasn't balancing the way I wanted. By the way, have you noticed the change in global gamma? I've also changed the bipolar for better balance.

A number of things had to happen along the way. First, it took some tweaking to get the repetitions to work out. This takes balancing the transform weight and the xaos.

Once the fractal flame has been balanced, we can easily put it in monochrome and verify that it looks amazing. Yes, it even looks good in sharp pink with a white background.
