This has been mentioned on the apo mailing list but
should be mentioned here as well. There is a large
number of flames that people have created with
Apo-2.02(g,f,h,i or z) that show up more-or-less
different in Apo-2.03a.
The preview (or render-to-disk) looks quite different
from whatever flam3 generates.
The problem is most obvious for variations "fan" and
"rings" (NOT the new fan2 or rings2) but shows up in
many other and unexpected places as well.
A trivial demonstration involves creating any arbitrary
flame, then settting the variation "rings" in any one
(or multiple) transforms to some random number and
observing that this doesn't change the appeareance of
the preview window in Apo. "Render to disk" shows the
same as the preview, but "export flame" creates
something entirely different.
An example that was posted to the mailing list involves
this flame file:
which comes out in these two different ways:
Given that the previous 2.02-betas have expired, this
ought to deserve fairly high priority...
