Fractal Zplot x64

Fractal Zplot x64 was rewritten to take advantage of the new generation of 64-bit computers now on the market. As such it is 30-40% faster than the 32 bit model, in 3D mode, and up to 3-4 times faster in 2D mode. Export models can be up to 10 million faces or more, unsimplified, limited only by the amount of system memory available. Caveats: the 64 bit model has a different structure alignment and larger pointer size, so data files (.zp) produced with the 32 bit model are incompatible with this version. There is, however, a transfer routine in the latest 32 bit version of Fractal Zplot that allows most of the parameters in older .zp files to be converted to a format Fractal Zplot x64 can load. Fractal Zplot x64 runs only on 64-bit Windows.

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.
