Now that I'm on my old computer, might as well share the beautiful images I found by putting in my own formulas. I was planning to put many of these images on my DA but didn't get around to doing so at the time. Most of these images were generated using Chaospro, an old and slightly dated, yet still handy fractal generator.
Man, I used to love fractals when I was young! I remember having a program on my old pc where you could fuck around with different values and it would generate fractals for you. Itd make my computer crash multiple times though, unfortunately. Anyone have something similar to that in mind?
Well, theres ifs, chaos game, l-system, julia sets and more. How did they look when they generate and did they have a consistent self affinity?
Oh! Then what you're talking about are called JULIA SETS Julia sets are actually very similar to the picture you shown known as THE MANDELBROT SET The Mandelbrot set is nice and all but personally I think it's more fun when you put a little abs() into the equation and maybe a little logic statements or trigonometry. Merely putting abs() into the mandelbrot set formula generates a fractal known as THE BURNING SHIP FRACTAL
I really don't know exactly how they generate. It's got something to do with testing whether its a square root of a negative number (imaginary) or not (real). I don't get the whole plane it does it on, all the dimensional crap and the whole association of z^2+c thing. In America, high school is mostly just tedious algbra, easy geometry and basic trigonometry and in college they throw nearly all of that out of the window and do derivative and integrals. Also, dropping math is unheard of. You gotta finish one class each year. To make fractals like these: -open chaos pro -go to fractals and click escape-time -open the formulas window -try to find standard mandelbrot (the easiest to work with) - if you find z^power + pixel, theres the thing you'll want to mess with. power is a constant 2. z makes up basically the black area. pixel is kinda the whole map i think?? -like I said use abs(). It makes things interesting.
One thing I'll also mention, Colorcycling. TURN IT ON AND ENJOY.
If you want to zoom far in though, use Kalles Fraktaler 2. Eventually if you zoom in too much in Chaos pro, Everything gets all blocky.
