Ammonites are fossils that look somewhat like the modern nautilus (although more closely related to squid).To bring these old fossils back to life here are a few pointers:- start with 'Noise'- and 'Pattern type' set to 1- then first adjust to the desired 'Swirl' and 'Swirl spacing'- when these are satisfactory you can set the 'Shell end'- when adjusting both 'Noise'- and 'Pattern type' it is easier to see the patterns when you set both contrasts to maxSnippets used in this filter:- Spherify/Un-Spherify uberEDITION v3.1 by uberzev- Any Angle Rotate v1.1 by uberzev- Fast spiral by Sjeiti
