Quantum Zplot

Quantum Zplot was written to take advantage of the new generation of 64-bit computers now on the market. Export models can be up to 10 million faces or more, unsimplified, limited only by the amount of system memory available.

Quantum Zplot runs only on 64-bit Windows.

Quantum Zplot graphs 2-D and 3-D slices of formulas based on multi-dimensional fractal spaces. Quantum currently supports quaternion, hypernion, complexified quaternion, cubic Mandelbrot, octonion,
loxodromic (Thomas Kromer), mandalabeth (Elizabeth R. Chen), mandelbulb, mandelbox, and
Kaleidoscope (escape-time IFS, Menger Sponge and polyhedral Sierpinski) formulas plus hybrid
combinations of all fractal types in renderings of Mandelbrot sets and Julia sets.

A random image generator, batchmode and integrated video routines make the program easy for beginners and a powerful complement to advanced fractal artists.

Features of Quantum Zplot:

  • Getting Started Tutorial
  • Distance Estimator for Higher Speed and Accuracy
  • 385+ Built in 2-D and 3-D Formulas + Kaleidoscope IFS (escape-time) + sample data for each formula
  • Detailed Parser information for creating your own custom formulas with support for distance estimator
  • Import options for loading Quantum parameter files [QM6], Fractal Zplot x64 parameter files [ZP6], QuaSZ x64 parameter files [QS6], Mystic Mandalabeth parammeter files [MB6], Cubics DE parameter files [CU6], Montezuma parameter files [MN6], Hydra DE parameter files [HY6] and Ocelot parameter files [OC6]
  • User-Defined Mandelbulb formula (c1)

  • Context help for menu commands and dialog windows as well as a complete list of topics in the main Windows help [Html] file
  • PDF (printable) Manual

A trial version of Quantum Zplot is available. This contains most of the features of the full version, except that the image size is limited to 320X320 and the precision of 3-D object exports is fixed at 1000 steps. The trial version is for evaluation purposes only. Click here for more info.
