This program makes spiral-based fractals. But even if you don't understand any of the math, just push a bunch of buttons and you should still get some interesting images. There's a big 'Tips' box that should help you create good stuff.

INSTRUCTIONS: On the rendering screen, press space to stop drawing lines, and press backspace to go back to the configuration screen.

I know a lot of people don't understand how this works, so here's some settings that look really cool:

-Try angle increments of 35, 89, and 179. Notice a pattern? These are all slightly less than a number that divides evenly into 360, so based on that you should be able to find others.

-For every interesting angle, try it with different function settings. Also, just switching +/- signs can make a big difference.

-The best looking color settings are fire or pulse on a really low rate setting.

-Starting with short line lengths takes more time, but it can make really cool effects.



Rated 5 / 5 stars

pretty cool

mine is the best:
x- initial size = 1
y+ initial angle = 100

x sin size increment = 1
y cos angle increment = 65

do it on rainbow, and wait till its finished. IT LOOKS AWESOME!

try with either pulse flame grayscale or rainbow

Check it on rainbow or pulse.

And fire and rainbow is neat with it.
Great job, i give this a five and a ten. Keep up the great work
