Roses Two Video
Roses Two is a relaxing Mandelbrot fractal zoom that uses an "image orbit trap" colouring technique. Here we also have a little "behind the scenes" look at how the project was built.

Making the video
The keyframes for this video were rendered with ultra Fractal 6. 97 keyframes were rendered. These keyframes are then combined by scaling and blending using a custom script for Adobe After Effects. The Ultra Fractal project consists of 10 layers.
The top layer is an effect for fake 3D lighting. It uses the "Potential Differential" (aho.ucl) colouring method. (Make sure you set the bailout to 1e20 if you are using this method, and use the "additive" option in the advanced setting or you may have trouble.) It is blended using "multiply"
The Glass light layer uses the "Smooth (Mandelbrot)" colouring method. It is blended with "Hard Light". This layer is deigned to outline the transition between images.
The final layers are arranged in groups of 2 for each image. One layer is the colour, the other is used to mask the layer. The masking layer is "Smooth (Mandelbrot)". The image trap layer uses "Orbit Traps Direct (UF5)" with the trap shape set to "Image Trap". These are what the 4 layers look like for this frame. The white areas are actually transparent, and the images are stacked on top of each other.
