Description

FractalNow provides users with tools to generate pictures of various types of fractals quickly and easily.
It is made of both a command line tool, 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.

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 of arbitrary precision floating point numbers

    I have none of the math skills at present to deal with (Understand) anything but the elementary beginnings of the MSet and its variations on formulae. But I Aint dumb enough not to grab a good generator when I see it ;). THANK YOU THANK YOU
