Using the Fractal Imaginator (Fi) for the creation of fractals always a parameterfile is stored (with .fim extension) besides the storage of a jpg/png/bmp-file. Clicking on this .fim files initiates the Fi. So only the much smaller .fim files needs to be transported.

    Using the Fractal Imaginator (Fi) for the creation of fractals always a parameterfile is stored (with .fim extension) besides the
    storage of a jpg/png/bmp-file. Clicking on this .fim files initiates the Fi. So only the much smaller .fim files needs to be transported.

Basically, this file format is still the same one that Terry Gintz uses for all of his programs, which is based on the one from the ZPLOT program.  I can change the file extension from .FIM to something like .QSZ, and then open it within QuaSZ.  Or I could change it to one of the other file extensions that Terry uses on his programs so I can open this parameter file in those other programs as well.

If you open the .FIM file using Notepad or Wordpad, you can then see what I am talking about.

Dear Paul,

This is a good addition for telling the power of the Fractal Imaginator.

Thanks,
Jules.

     This is a good addition for telling the power of the Fractal Imaginator.

It has no "power" that makes it special.  All it is doing is the same thing that all of the previous programs that Terry Gintz has written and has been doing for years.  The code/logic that saves the parameter files is virtually identical to the other programs.  Nothing powerful or special at all is happening.

The saving of parameter information by a fractal rendering application is by no means new.  This is the way it has been done by over 90 percent of all fractal rendering applications.

Indeed, Terry W. Gintz is one of the best programmers of fractal software in the world.

New in the Fractal Imaginator (Fi) is the creation of the so called Julius Set and Julius Ruis set, which are very important for searching the edge of chaos of Mandelbrot sets and Julia sets.
