FractalNow
Version 0.8.1 (2012-07-11)
Copyright: 2011-2012 Marc Pegon pe.marc@free.fr
Homepage: https://fractalnow.sourceforge.io/

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
