In the right image, the first parameter was set to 10.01, a difference of 0.1%. Here too the twins start out together and later diverge as can be seen near the lower center of the image.

At any time you can save the graphs to disk as BMP file. You can also make

- Lorenz Attractor
- Rossler Attractor

This program (primitive but informing) will tell you just how big your pet fractal is. If you are doing deep zooms (any fractal program, doesn't have to be FRACTINT), and you know the magnification factor of the zoom image, you can determine the size of the original fractal.

- Fractal Dimension

For example, if you zoom into the Mandelbrot to a magnification of 2e+26, the original Mandelbrot is about ten billion (1e+10) light-years across - about the size of the known observable Universe.

These two plot the Lorenz and Rossler attractors respectively, with user input parameters. However, they also plot an audio graph as well. That means

Actually, they are not "images" until you stop the program amd save them. These graphs are dynamic - constantly growing and changing - forever.

The

Other than the 3 DOS programs listed above, all of these are coded in VisualBASIC 6.0. They should run on any current system with 32 bit Windows. In the possible but unlikely event you do not have the VB support files installed, fetch them

I will start posting here the individual animation utilities used to make all the animations on this site. I have tried to make them as user friendly and idiot proof as I can, but you also have to know what you're doing and be familiar with Fractint. I'll start with the Mandelbrot Zoomers:

These two generate script (*.BAT and *.PAR) files which run Fractint in auto-mode, generating Mandelbrot ZooM sequences.

- Mandelbrot Zoomer #1

This program can zoom to infinity and back; it uses the Fractint "center-mag" parameters. The only limitation is that it can't zoom across the plane - it can only go strait in.

- Mandelbrot Deep Zoomer #2

This program enables zoom sequences both into the plane and across it. It uses the Fractint "corners" parameters. It's only limitation is that it can't zoom deeper than about E+13. This is due to limitations in the numerical precision needed for the coordinates that can be fit into (normal) program variables.

Use them both together for any Mandelbrot ZooM that needs to be done. The world-famous "Universe" viddies on my main page were made with these in combination.
