I’ve already noted that a pair of flux transforms can create the so-called ‘gasket’ framework:
but I’ve never really managed to do much with flux, despite other artists’ affinity for the variation. Until now. The gasket may be reproduced by linking a linear transform to a pair of fluxes (with flux_spread set to -1), one with post-transform rotated 180 degrees. But what about using a different base from linear? Collideoscope (collideoscope_a = 0.5, collideoscope_num = 2) proved interesting, giving a circular pattern of triangles (colour spread is controlled on the fluxes):
Instead of linking the single base transform directly to the fluxes, you can first create a linked chain of, say, 4 transforms before linking the final one to the flux framework:
There’s now the option to add further effects using the intermediate transforms, e.g. swirl (via swirl2 or whorl) or wiggle/gnarl (via auger and/or bwraps). Or further rearrange the pattern using the lazies, target, ortho etc.:
Further variations may be found by switching geometries: bipolar via bcollide base or elliptic via ecollide base (note that the a variable remains at 0.5 but the num variable should now be set to 1 for these).
Effects may be applied post-framework by share-linking the fluxes to a further linked chain.
