Fraqtive – multi-platform generator of the Mandelbrot family fractals

Fraqtive is a program for drawing Mandelbrot and Julia fractals.

It uses a very fast algorithm and generates high quality, smooth images.

This software is fully interactive, allowing for real-time mouse navigation and dynamic generation of the Julia fractal preview. OpenGL-rendered 3D view of the fractals is also supported.

Features include:

  • Mandlebrot and Julia fractals:
    • Normal.
    • Conjugate.
    • Absolute.
    • Absolite Im.
  • Very fast algorithms with built-in, highly optimized procedures for performing calculations.
  • Generate images up to 30720 x 17280 pixels. In the 32-bit version the limit is 8000 x 8000 pixels. This makes it possible to generate very high quality images and movies
  • Multi-Sampling – generate images using multiple samples per pixel (2×2, 4×4 or 8×8 samples). This greatly improves the quality of images, especially in the “noisy” areas.
  • Generate a series of images with increasing zoom level and optional rotation.
  • Real-time navigation.
  • Rendering 3D scenes.
  • Full screen mode.
  • Save high quality anti-aliased images to PNG, JPEG, TIFF, BMP and PPM formats.
  • Bookmarks.
  • Keyboard navigation.
  • Built in tutorial.
  • Compatibility with Qt 5.
