Fractal Imaginator

Fractal Imaginator is an innovative new program for generating fractal images. Based on Fractal Zplot, parts of this program have been in continuous development since 1989. New additions to Imaginator are drawn from Jules Ruis' BBM8 program and "Fractal Awareness" algorithms. Fractal Imaginator currently supports Julius Ruis sets of Julia basins, orbit-traps, level sets, Newton's method, and Phoenix curves, as well as the standard Mandelbrot and "warped" Mandelbrot sets and many 3D fractal types, including quaternions, mandelbulbs and lsystems.

Features of Fractal Imaginator:

  • Getting Started Tutorial
  • Julius Ruis maps for easy navigating of Julia basins
  • Choice of 441, 25 or one image to a draw window
  • 22 examples of Fractal Growth, including beautiful 8-fold symmetry
  • 3D Lsystems -- including 100+ sample ls files (royalty free)
  • 210 Built in Formulas + FraSZle/QuaSZ Formula set
  • Integrated Mandelbulb Type (Sine and Cosine versions)
  • Trancendental and exponential Mandelbulb (triplex) support
  • Detailed Parser information for creating your own custom formulas and lsystems
  • Import option for loading FraSZle parameter files [FSZ]
  • 3D quaternion exports:
    • Wavefront object format [OBJ]
    • Stereolithography [STL]
    • Triangle mesh [POV]
    • Smooth Triangle mesh [POV]
    • Mesh simplification for smaller OBJ and POV export files
    • Virtual reality [WRL]
    • AutoCad [DXF]
  • 3D object exports:
    • Lsystems [OBJ, STL, POV, DXF]
  • Palette-based coloring methods (65000+ colors out of 16 million)
  • Adjustable lighting model with Phong highlights
  • Random image generators and random genetic formula generator
  • Batch mode for unattended image creation
  • Integrated video routines allow easy morphing and rotating between key frames
  • AVI object options for exporting single frames as 3D object files
  • Pilot for easy panning, zooming and rotating 3D fractals
  • Separate user-defined folders for file types like palettes, videos, objects and drawings
  • HTML Context help for menu commands and dialog windows
  • PDF (printable) Manual

A trial version of Fractal Imaginator is available. This contains most of the features of the full version, except that the image size is limited to 320X240 and the precision of 3D object exports is fixed at 300 steps. The trial version is for evaluation purposes only. Click here for more info.
