Cracks of Reality
Cracks of Reality is a fractal image rendering application. Its focus is on high quality rendering of images to be used as desktop background pictures. It is not designed for exploring fractal sets (use XaoS for that), but instead allows you to import parameters from other fractal programs.
This application generates fractals using the chaos game algorithm.
Gaston provides interactive, stereoscopic real-time 3D rendering of 4D quaternion Julia set fractals.
Mandel Blot draws the Mandelbrot Set.
ME for Mac OSX is a Mandelbrot Explorer written in Objective-C.
Oxidizer is a free open source fractal flame editor. It is designed to be compatible with the flam3 suite and the Electric Sheep screen saver allowing the user to render flames and sheep along with the interactive creation of original flames.
Power Fractal is a numerically-intensive parallel graphics application that computes a Mandelbrot-like fractal and displays processor performance statistics. This app uses the Velocity Engine, a.k.a. AltiVec, and multiple processors (MP) for its computations and uses UCLA AppleSeed's MacMPI_X library for communication between parallel processors.
TeraFractal lets you create and display fractal images that are based on an iterated function system. But rather than forcing you to define transformations numerically, TeraFractal represents each transformation as a rectangle in a control window. You make adjustments by simply manipulating these rectangles with the mouse or arrow keys to alter the translation, rotation, and scaling factors.
XaoS is a fast portable real-time interactive fractal zoomer. It displays the Mandelbrot set (among other escape time fractals) and allows you zoom smoothly into the fractal. Various coloring modes are provided for both the points inside and outside the selected set. In addition, switching between Julia and Mandelbrot fractal types and on-the-fly plane switching is provided. Read more
