Fractal Orbits

Fractal Orbits is an interactive program for Windows that is optimized to generate high-resolution fractal images. Fractals Orbits was designed to create true-color fractals and videos of 2D and 3D fractal types with random generating methods. Fractal Orbits currently supports the Mandelbrot set, Julia sets, Cloud fractals, quat-trap fractals, Newton's method (including 3D Newton and Halley Quaternions), and Phoenix curves, with numerous coloring variations.

Features of Fractal Orbits:

To Buy:

A trial version of Fractal Orbits 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.
