Hi all.

My name is Duncan C. I just joined the forum a few days ago.

I'm rekindling my interest in fractals after a many-year hiatus.  Back in the 80s I developed an application to render Mandelbrot and Julia sets, inspired by the book "The Beauty of Fractals."

I'm well along in developing a new, improved version of my application, called FractalWorks.  It runs on Macintoshes under OS X, and is quite fast.  I'm putting a lot of effort into the ability to create striking looking color schemes.  Right now my code supports a very flexible way to specify colors, but I  haven't created a user interface to create those color schemes yet.  Right now I have to recompile my program.

I do at least have file save working, both in a native format that preserves all the settings used to generate the plot, as well as "save as TIFF."  I'm getting results I'm pretty pleased with.

Here is a sample image:

(click here to see the MUCH larger "original" version on pbase.)
The original version is quite big, but well worth it.  The scaled-down version doesn't really do it justice.  This image is scaled to be a desktop "wallpaper" for my 14 inch laptop.

I have a few more images in a gallery here.

I'll post more as my development effort progresses.

have you achieved some results so far?

i currently want to move Fractals into Fluid dynamics.

maybe there is a crossing point:
