Fraqtive 0.4 http://lib.giveawayoftheday.com/Fraqtive_96879/ is an innovative open-source program that will let you generate fractals in a simple way. For those who don't know, fractals are complex, detailed geometric patterns created using mathematical formulas, wherein every part resembles the whole structure in an infinite self-repetitive manner. Some fractals can be found in the natural world: for example, in clouds, plants, snowflakes, etc. A good feature of this program is that you can move and rotate the fractal in real time, and all details will be automatically updated. Besides, you can generate high-quality fractals easily, thanks to fast algorithms used by the program. It can even take advantage of the maximum performance of modern PCs with multi-core processors. Moreover, the application will let you change some color settings, for example, choose the background and color gradient, and select, if you want, the fractal to be mirrored or reversed. In addition, you will also be able to choose the image anti-aliasing level, the detail level, and the calculation depth. And if you get an interesting fractal, you can be save its position, or save it as an image in PNG format. The application can also generate 3D fractals, although it will work a little slower in this mode. ... Publisher description: Fraqtive is an open source, multi-platform generator of the Mandelbrot family fractals. It uses very fast algorithms supporting SSE2 and multi-core processors. It generates high quality anti-aliased images and renders 3D scenes using OpenGL. It allows real-time navigation and dynamic generation of the Julia fractal preview.
MSPlotter (Mandelbrot Set Plotter) helps you create fractal images using the Mandelbrot Set and the Julia Set. Just enter values for Center X, Center Y, Range, and Power of Equation; press the "Plot" button to begin the process of rendering your image, which may be saved in .bmp format. Options let you select image and window colors, specify detail value, and more. MSPlotter can produce some nice-looking fractals while giving you total control of the process. Fractal AVI movies can also be created.
Fractal Studio (freeware) http://lib.giveawayoftheday.com/Fractal_Studio_112776/ is a program for generating fractals of different kinds. We are now within a bigger reconstruction phase so it could need some time until we release the next version of our program. In the actual version fractals with complex numbers, quaternions, and a new type: time-discreet-phase-planes can be rendered. A raytracer can be switched on, with it the normally flat complex fractals can bee seen as hight profiles. For preview OpenGL is used. It is planned to implement triples, octonions, IFS, plasma as well as other fractals, a new raytracer and lots of other nice things. Suggestions and criticism are welcome.
