Think of tags as like a book index where you find words and which pages they are on, the same principle applies here. Although it's taken a stage further so it might not be the word, but the subject, so for example if you're looking for things to do with fractal gradients for example. A tag may bring back posts with gradient files, as well as posts that discuss gradients, or tutorials about them.

Polar Shapes

Variations that generate specific shapes using polar coordinates. Unlike normal blurs, which ignore the input point, these variations are half blurs that take the angle of the input point (theta) and compute a random distance (rho) within the shape. This allows some flexibility in coloring. They can be substituted for normal blurs in many flames; if it doesn’t work, try adding some pre_blur to the transform to generate random angles (this is done for the examples here).

Line Shapes

Shape variations made from lines. Like all shape variations, they ignore the input. Some are generated using parametric equations. Others use algorithmic techniques.

rhodonea

Rosecurve

The rose or rhodonea curve is shaped like a flower with petals, obtained by plotting a sine curve in polar coordinates. Its shape is determined by the frequency of the sine wave, denoted k.

Blobs

These variations deform the plane by pinching it towards the origin, making a blob-like shape. The math is similar to that of rose curves, but these are standard variations, not blurs.

Conic is an interesting variation, cones as you’d expect, but there’s more.
