real-time interactive fractal zoomer
  11 reviews

XaoS allows you to zoom and pan around a fractal in real time. It can display the animated fractals in graphical or even plain text mode.

It displays the Mandelbrot set or many other fractals and allows you to zoom smoothly into the fractal. Various coloring modes are provided for both the points inside and outside the selected set. In addition, switching between Mandelbrot and Julia fractal types is provided.

Other features include autopilot mode, palette changing, image saving, fractal inversion, filters, and a built in fractal tutorial.

I have been fiddling around with this programme for years. It's wonderful. The vistas that can be visited have held me spellbound. There is something mentally clarifying about witnessing infinity in such an accessable format. Great for tea parties at 4:20 too.

Great fun, controls are out of the way but fairly obvious - F1=Help, Q=Quit.

I have no idea what I'm going to use a fractal zoomer for, but it sure is cool. Plenty of options and configurability.

Really cool program! Wishing for an easy way to have it use more than one thread, or even a graphics card.
