I have never used software like this and i must say that it's entertaining and easy to use. It has thousand of combination that you can apply that i can probably use for a couple of years and still have thousand more to discover. I see that their is no limit to what can be done with the tool. I will have to educate myself to get the best out of it. Lots of mathematical terms not familiar with or just plain forgot. You should try it... its fun and easy.....
This one made me re-install Java on my Windows 7 again because i really like Fractals and read the review, saw the amazing screenshots and decided that it was well worth installing Java. I play with fractals since 1987 on my Atari STE computer and it had a program very similar to this one except it was way slower rendering (CPU 8 Mhz!!!) and had not this many mathematical functions. The options to save to jpeg or other formats make this an amazing creative tool. It's an excellent program and i will keep Java to use Fractal Zoomer because I love it's simplicity and available mathematical depth.
I created some cool fractals in not too much time but there are so many combinations, variations, formulas that it could make your head spin.
But that is a GOOD thing.
It's really quite limitless in combinations and I would urge anyone who hasn't worked with fractal software before to do plenty of reading but you won't be disappointed when you learn to control these fractals and come up with some pretty amazing patterns.
Yeah, definitely one of the better fractal softwares I've used, a keeper and a 5.
