Burning Ships |
This is the now famous "burning ship" fractal which is derived by a very small change to the classic Mandelbrot formula, which is:
Mandelbrot (xaxis) { ; z = 0, c = pixel: z = z*z + c |z| < 4 } To make the burning ship, simply use the absolute values of the REAL and IMAG components: Burning Ship { ; z = 0, c = pixel: z = (abs(z))^2+ c |z| < 4 } AVI 1024x768 437 MEG (High Resolution) ♦♦♦ 2 minutes 33 seconds |

Morphing Ship |
To make the morphing ship, vary the exponent of the burning ship from -10 to +10: Morphing Ship { ; z = 0, c = pixel: z = (abs(z))^{-10 -> +10}+ c |z| < 4 } AVI 1600x1200 485 MEG (High Resolution) ♦♦♦ 1 minutes 22 seconds |

Evolution of the Mandelbrot Set |
The normal {classic} Mandelbrot uses an exponent of 2 , and theformula can be written thus: Mandelbrot (xaxis) { ; z = 0, c = pixel: z = z^2 + c |z| < 4 } In this viddie, that exponent is varied from 0 to 8 , and we see the Mandelbrot evolve from a seed to a creature with multiple (7 in this case) heads.

The classic way of rendering fractals is to iterate the coordinates of each pixel on the screne many times through the equation until it "escapes" from the complex plane or appears to be forever "trapped", determined by algorithm. If it is trapped it is part of the fractal set and is colored black. If it escapes it is then given a color based on the number of iterations it took. This iteration process graphs what is called an orbit, which can be circular, spiral, or any kind of shape. And the orbit of one pixel can cover a large part of the screne.

BuddhaBrot |
To make the BuddhaBrot, the orbits themselves are plotted on the screne, not the individual colored pixel. And wherever two orbits intersect,
that pixel is incremented by color. (And this is done only for the ones that "escape"). The overlap of all these thousands of orbits then
creates the fuzzy surrealistic "BuddhaBrot" image. And this can be done for any fractal, not just the Mandelbrot.
As iteration count increases, the length and time of the orbit(s) increase, thus creating more overlaps and more incremented pixels. Thus by varying the iteration and parameter count an interesting morphing-evolution effect is seen. AVI 1024x768 74 sec. 183 MEG ♦♦♦ |
