How to fill holes in JWildfire fractals

Fractals where there’s a hole in the middle. Want to know how to get rid? Here you see a typical example of a fractal with a hole, that would look better filled.

Time needed: 5 minutes.

How many times do you make a great fractal that has a hole in the middle? Don’t you wish you could fill that gap in to make the fractal more neat?

  1. Adding a second variation to our last transform.

    To fill that hole in we’re going to go to our last transform (in this case a Final hypertile) and add another variation. Click the drop down to add another variation as shown in the image.

    click drop down to add variation

  2. Choose the spherical variation

    From the list of variations that appears after clicking the drop down, choose spherical.

    Choose spherical

  3. Click the post transform button.

    Click the button next to the drop down, the post transform button, just click it once to activate it.

    click post transform

  4. Setting a negative value.

    We need to either drag in the value area to the left to start reducing the value to the negative range, or we can type one in, or if you have a mouse wheel, click in and use the wheel. It only usually needs a small value to pinch the centre of the fractal inward. Try adjusting it by clicking the arrow buttons to the side of the value for more precise control, for further precise control, click the “fine edit” button at the top of JWildfire.

    get a negative value

  5. The hole is filled!

    And there’s the result, no more hole in the centre of the fractal. As mentioned earlier, there are other methods that can be used, but this is my go to method.
