Fractal Zplot

Fractal Zplot is an interactive program for generating fractal images. Originally named Zplot, this program has been in continuous development since 1989. Fractal Zplot currently supports the Mandelbrot set, Julia sets, Newton's method, and Phoenix curves, with millions of mapping variations. 3D fractal types include quaternion, hypercomplex, orbital fractals and lsystems, in addition to the original height field and landscape types.

Features of Fractal Zplot:

  • Getting Started Tutorial
  • 208 Built in Formulas + FraSZle Formula set
  • 8 Mandelbulb 3D formulas (trig and non-trig sine and cosine versions)
  • Detailed Parser information for creating your own custom formulas
  • Import option for loading FraSZle parameter files [FSZ]
  • 3D quaternion exports:
    • Wavefront object format [OBJ]
    • 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]
    • Orbital fractals [OBJ, DXF]
    • Height fields [OBJ, POV, DXF]
  • Palette-based coloring methods
  • Perlin noise generator for realistic textures
  • 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
  • Midi support for translating fractal data into fractal music
  • Pilot for easy panning, zooming and rotating
  • Separate user-defined folders for file types like palettes, textures, objects and drawings
  • Html Context help for menu commands and dialog windows
  • PDF (printable) Manual

A trial version of Fractal Zplot is available. This contains most of the features of the full version, except that the size of the images is limited to 320X240 and the resolution of quaternion exports is limited to 300 steps. The trial version is for evaluation purposes only. Click here for more info.
