Apophysis Tutorial by Sya Apophysis Tutorial by Sya
At last it's finished.

The download is a zipped, fully illustrated and informative, 17 page PDF tutorial designed for beginners. The first part covers many Apophysis tips, including saving, editing and applying scripts, using hotkeys, mutating and transforming, saving parameters, changing gradients and rendering (using both HQI and Apophysis).

The second part contains information regarding Photoshop manipulation and recovery. Covered topics include basic color correction examples, using filters, layer techniques and a few other tips and hints designed to help beginners.

To view the pdf, you will need to have Adobe Acrobat Reader 6.0 or higher installed. [link]

If you are looking for the script mentioned in the tutorial, you can find it in the comments section here:

If you have any questions, send me an email. If it has helped you, please come back and fav it.


I have written a second and more in depth tutorial that is a good follow up to this one. Or, if you feel comfortable with the interface and would like to learn better commands, go straight HERE!

I am trying to learn how to add a variable (3D spherical).  I dragged it to the apophysis exe file and when it opened up, it still cannot be  found  in the list of variables.  Can you please help.


Now I am going to download your tut and try it.

Drag the variable into your Plugins folder and restart Apo. Should be able to find it in the list of variables in the transform editor as well as the main window where it says Variations then choose Plugins>3d Spherical.

:wave: After reading ^SaTaNiA's feature conversation with you, I wanted to personally thank you for your tutorial. Yours was the first one I found (through google) when I discovered apophysis and needed to learn how to use it. Glad I found you back then! :hug:
