The Fractal Science Kit fractal generator is a Windows program that generates a fractal image from a set of properties that you can set to control the fractal generation process. Example properties include the type of fractal, the size of the image, and parameters to control orbit generation, data normalization, oversampling, embossing, smoothing, and gamma correction.
Some of the fractal properties are programs that define the fractal equation, the complex transformations applied to the fractal data, and the instructions that map the data to colors for display. You can work with a set of built-in programs or develop your own set of fractal programs using the interactive programming environment provided by the Fractal Science Kit fractal generator. The interactive programming environment has application windows for viewing the fractal image, modifying the properties that define the fractal, examining the data behind the fractal, and viewing/editing the fractal programs, macros (inline functions/methods), and color gradients, used by the Fractal Science Kit to produce the final image.
The Fractal Science Kit supports many different fractal types including: Mandelbrot, Julia, Convergent, Newton, Orbit Traps, Sierpinski Triangle, IFS, Strange Attractors, Rep-N Tiles, Symmetric Icons, Symmetric Attractors, Frieze Group Attractors, Wallpaper Group Attractors, Hyperbolic Attractors, Apollonian Gasket, Circle Inversion, Schottky Group, Kleinian Group, L-System and many more.
Hundreds of built-in equations, transformations, orbit traps, and color controllers, allow the casual user to produce stunning fractal images right out of the box, while providing the experienced fractal developer a rich set of illustrative examples on which to build his/her own programs.
