Really :)

Real democoders do this in their heads, but cool nevertheless :)

Oh btw, dont forget to click 'animate' and twist the variable knobs. Also its got a lot of example files showing what it can do. Documentation is a bit thin :)

I've only seen the screenshots but looks a nice idea.

I really liked the option of listening to the plots too

Goed werk van je te zien hier!

1 / (x^2+y^2) + 1 / ( (x-a)^2+(y-b)^2 ) - c

I added a 'blobs.vfc' based on the equation from 0xtob. Its in the main download.

Wow, rather cool tool and has everything, from RGB functions to even sound output generation. I will play with it when I am not coding and make plasmas, haha!

Seems like this tool also comes with selfvoting thumbs :)

Yeah sorry. I wanted to give some more info but i cant modify anything, and i already lowered the thumbcount once, so i upped it once too. Would be great if you can modify your posts / change info on your prod but i cant find where.

I would like to know what does ":" in function editbox. I.e. cos(sin(x:y-2n))
Thanks ;)
(btw the blue plasma on the screeny deserve to be in the archive ;p)
Hi there. the : does vector distance x:y = sqr(x^2+y^2). (note square-root is sqr in the calc). The equation for the plasma in the screenshot is: cos(sin(x:y-2n)-sin(|x+(8sin(n)+10)|:(y+5sin(2n))+5n))

Thanks Arc^ it's clear to me now.

Great toy/tool. I always wanted a powerful thing for quick experiments.

really cool and great toy

Ah a new page.. now i have to repeat the extra info :) The article on the calc you can find here: http://www.rikarends.com/riks-calculator/
I'm curious what people create with it so feel free to mail new equations.
added on the 2007-04-21 19:56:54 by Arc99 Arc99
I updated the calc to support RGB plasma output. Its a bit slower because of the 3 channels and thus the 3 equations per pixel to process, but it should be fun to play with.

Really cool tool (and as a toy too), top work!

YAY this is great for a math lamer like me.
Thx for the release.

Nice one. I like evaldraw too. Similar approach. Your interface is much more attractive though...

really cool, but no hidden surface removal for plots? and no fill mode? tut, tut. really needs some anti-aliased line too.

cool little tool, a bit of doco and being able to zoom with scrollwheel would be nice.

Fff. The downloadlink is dead and I can't find the file mirrored anywhere. Does anyone have this program still?
