this one ROCKS

it shows 5 (in fact 2) rotating pseudo fractal textured cubes (without perspective) above changing background

NB: the source code is included

I like a 256b.

But poi², this isn't a pseudo-fractal texture, it's simply x XOR y :)

This rulz!!!!

ryg, isn't x XOR y a "pseudo fractal" pattern? I mean it looks like a kind of fractal doesn't it? :P

256b intros should attract some more people.

damn right...

Actually if you look into source it _is_ an IFS fractal. It is like Sierpinski but not only space coordinates are divided but also "color coordinate". That's why pixels appear random. What a dirty way of texturing :) I am surprised that x^y looks same :)
added on the 2001-12-18 21:12:32 by bush-o bush-o
in that case, maybe someone could shave of some byte by simply doing xor ax,bx or whatever... :)

acid jesus it looks like this is the entry i had to deliver to Chaos Constructions and i did, but where the hell organizers put that only organizers knows (see countless "positive" reports from this party in scene press around da world)

great stuff

xor ax,bx wouldn't help as it generates only 2D wallpaper. You need to actually draw fractal because texturemapper is long for 256b.
added on the 2002-01-19 09:23:30 by bush-o bush-o
why? i'd simply raycast the cube, use the "intersection point" to generate the "texture coords", normalize them into [0..255] range and voila... this shouldn't be too big.
added on the 2002-01-19 10:04:33 by ryg ryg
To raycast a cube means to find an intersection point with 6 possible planes. IFS fractal means one random number, four additions and four shifts.
added on the 2002-01-19 20:28:30 by bush-o bush-o
IFS fractal is just a set of transformations, thus to create a cube, start with a point on a face and rotate it to another face and a little move within the face

then the texture should be :
x ^ y ^ z ( normalized to [0..255] coordinates )
added on the 2002-01-19 20:40:27 by p01 p01
bush: rayCAST, not rayTRACE. you don't need to find an intersection point, just use a small enough step size and stop when the ray is in the volume of the cube, which is trivial to check.
added on the 2002-01-19 21:01:31 by ryg ryg
ryg: Ah! I misinterpreted your term. For me rayCAST is finding of the closest intersection point, rayTRACE is doing it recursively more than once and rayMARCH is what you describe :)
added on the 2002-01-19 23:16:46 by bush-o bush-o
lattice also uses raycast but with a parametric function as "density field"
added on the 2002-01-19 23:40:55 by p01 p01
Heheh, you will kill me but I think Lattice is an implicit function not parametric one :) Parametric stuff is often much easier to render cuz you can directly solve the equation for x, y, z.
added on the 2002-01-20 10:46:20 by bush-o bush-o
you're right lattice uses implicit function

implicit enumeration requires fewer bytes than finding the closest solution of the parametric function thus it's more appropriate for 256b sutffs

I wanna see it with music but still in 256b =)

Classic 256b wonder. Almost on a level with tube, infact if the background changed a bit slower they would be equal!

@ryg: actually it's not xor texture at all the way it's typically generated :) that pattern gets generated just by doing colors the same way you would coordinates when generating the sierpinski cube itself.

About the pattern: Well, there are quite a bunch of pretty different algorithms yielding basically the same result ;) Can be useful for discrete 1D indexing of more complex data structures
