FractalNow Version 0.8.1 (2012-07-11) Copyright: 2011-2012 Marc Pegon <pe.marc@free.fr> Homepage: http://fractalnow.sourceforge.net/ Description =========== FractalNow is an open source, multi-platform fractal generator. It provides users with tools to generate pictures of various types of fractals quickly and easily. It is made of both a command line (FractalNow) and a graphical tool (QFractalNow). The graphical tool, based on Qt library, allows users to explore fractals intuitively and generate pictures. Both tools are entirely multi-threaded and implement advanced algorithms and heuristics that make computation very fast compared to most existing free fractal generators. What's new in this version ========================== - Made gradient offset spin box circular. - Improved icons. - Updated file formats documentation. - Minor bug fixes - Source cleaning Features ======== - Intuitive graphical user-interface (QFractalNow) to explore fractal space easily - A command-line tool (FractalNow) that can work on machines without a desktop, and could be used by scripts to produce animations - Several formulas available (Mandelbrot, Julia, Multibrot, Mandelbar, Burning ship, Rudy, and more...) - Various types of coloring available (Iteration counts, Average coloring methods) - Multiple anti-aliasing methods (Gaussian blur, Oversampling, Adaptive (intelligent)) to produce high quality images - Advanced algorithms and heuristics to speed up computation (Solid guessing, Adaptive anti-aliasing, Caching) - Entirely multi-threaded to work even faster on multi-core processors - Ability to save/load configuration and gradient files - Support for multiple precision (arbitrary precision) floats License ======= This program is free software; you can redistribute it and/or modify it under the terms of the GNU Lesser General Public License as published by the Free Software Foundation; either version 3 of the License, or (at your option) any later version.
