A Whirlwind Tour of the Mandelbrot Set


A whirlwind tour of the Mandelbrot Set.

<a href="http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=11350522&amp;server=vimeo.com&amp;fullscreen=1&amp;show_title=1&amp;show_byline=1&amp;show_portrait=0&amp;color=01AAEA" target="_blank">http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=11350522&amp;server=vimeo.com&amp;fullscreen=1&amp;show_title=1&amp;show_byline=1&amp;show_portrait=0&amp;color=01AAEA</a>

No keyframe interpolation tricks here; every frame is rendered directly and separately from the M-set math. The color assignment to iterations does vary in this one, but generally slowly and continuously. Many features of the shallower parts of the Set are showcased.

This one has a couple of minor bugs; for one I did not have time to get the camera movement as smooth as I would like in some places, and for another, there are a couple of places where the colors can be seen to change in small but discernible steps instead of smoothly-to-the-limit-of-discernibility, the latter an artifact of the limitation of 256 steps for each color component in the output and the fact that in certain parts of the color cube the human eye's color discernment is finer than the resolution of that representation, combined with the use of a time-varying gradient. Antialiasing is also less than ideal due to render-time constraints; this is coming in just under the wire as it is.

The music, once again, is a) classical, b) public domain as written, and c) public domain as recorded. First to identify the composer gets a cookie.
