      Easiest way to get started is to grab some parameter files from http://electricsheep.org/ and render those.

      Go to Server->Archive, and pick out one you like, then click on the genome link and then on file to get a plaintext version of just the parameters.  Copy/paste these into notepad and save as blahblahblah.flame.  You should now be able to open the file in flam4 and render.

      It's worth noting that there are still a small handful of flames that won't render properly (less than 1% I think), so if you just get a black frame, try a different one.
