MacOrca is an interactive program that is optimized to generate hi-res 2-D and 3-D fractal images. MacOrca currently supports quaternion, hypercomplex, complexified quaternion and Juliat renderings of the Mandelbrot set and Julia sets.

Features of Orca:

  • Getting Started Tutorial
  • 22 generalized dual-function formulas (2500+ variations)
  • Mixed quad math option for each formula
  • 4 types of random fractals:
    • 2-D Julia
    • Stalks (Orbit Traps)
    • Bubbles
    • 3-D Julia
  • 25 Orbit-trap methods
  • 3-D Orbit-trap and bubble textures
  • User-defined bailout option
  • 3D object 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]
    • Polygon Format [PLY]
  • Perlin noise generator for enhanced textures
  • Adjustable lighting model with Phong highlights
  • Integrated video routines allow easy morphing and rotating between key frames
  • Frame buffer format to edit, load and save movie templates [OFRM]
  • Texture file format [QTX] to build libraries of custom surface renderings
  • PDF (printable) Manual

MacOrca has been tested on OS 10.3.9 and 10.4.11. Before purchasing, please check the demo copy of MacOrca for your system's compatibility.

Information on purchasing this program can be found on the Packages page.

A trial version of MacOrca 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 400 steps. The trial version is for evaluation purposes only. Click here for more info.
