Fractal Generator: an Open Source Cross-platform Fractal Art Generator

Fractal Generator: an Open Source Cross-platform Fractal Art Generator

Fractal art is an amazing never-ending pattern. It is a beautiful loop of colors, structures, and shapes organized in a fancy pattern.

Fractal art is a computer generated art that uses algorithms to calculate fractal objects then represent them in a digital image, animation, or video.

To create fractal art, you need a fractal design or generator software, that allows you to create the pattern, modify the formulas, control colors and more.

Fractal Generator is an open source fractal design app, that allows you to create fancy fractal images without diving too much in complicated math formulas.

The Fractal Generator is designed to display images produced from complex and real parametric dynamical systems. Its main purpose is to allow the user to experiment with their own formulas in the dynamical system.

The program is built with Java, therefore it can run on Windows, Linux, and macOS.
