Fractal Of The Past - 012

You can click on the thumbnail image above to see the image at size 640 x 480.

This fractal is also on my other website, Jacco's Fractal Pages.

This fractal uses the formula Richard1 from the Fractint sample formula file FRACTINT.FRM. It is one of the formulas written by the French mathematician Jm Collard-Richard. The formula in Fractint code is:

Richard1 (XYAXIS) {; Jm Collard-Richard
  z = pixel:
  sq=z*z, z=(sq*sin(sq)+sq)+pixel

So the actual formula is: zn+1 = (zn2*sin(zn2) + zn2) + c

  1. I started with this fractal using the Continuous Potentional option (Y-screen).

  2. I didn't zoom in very deep. The second zoom was also the final one.

  3. Result of the final zoom.

  4. click here for 640 x 480 imageFinally I choose a color map. Note that I shifted the white color so that it appears to be behind the dark colored 'thorny' arches. This enhances the three dimensional look, as you may notice when you compare this image to the image of step 3.

One other thing that I should mention is that the Floating Point Algorithm (X-screen) is switched off. Switching it on produces a different image, as you can see here.
