|Fractal Of The Past - 008
You can click on the thumbnail image above to see the image at size 640 x 480.
The type of this fractal is Julia.
I started with the Mandelbrot fractal. The next sequence shows how I zoomed in to get the 'root' for the Julia fractal:
The crosshair in the previous image indicates the "root" for the Julia fractal. In Fractint you get this by just pressing the spacebar.
Pressing the spacebar again brings up the julia fractal.
I changed the outside coloring option to 'summ' and the inside
coloring option to 'bof60'.
Bof 60 is a inside coloring option which probably most Fractint users are familiar with. But what probably only a few Fractint users know (actually those who bother to read the Fractint.doc file) is that bof60 refers to a figure on page 60 of the book "Beauty of Fractals". One of the explanations in the Fractint.doc file says:
" The picture on page 60 of The Beauty of Fractals shows the distance to origin of the closest point to the origin in the sequence of points generated from a given X,Y coordinate."
In my opinion, of all the inside coloring options that Fractint has, bof60 often gives the nicest results. Zmag can also have pleasant surprises, though.
