FractalWorks is a high performance fractal renderer. It creates stunning images of Mandelbrot and Julia sets. It will create 3D renderings of your fractal images, and can generate stereo images for viewing as parallel or cross-eye, or anaglyph images. You can rotate, pan, and zoom your 3D images in real time on the screen, as well as adjust the texture and lighting of your fractal images.
Its unique and powerful color scheme system gives you great looking image colors that adapt automatically to different plots, highlighting the "interesting bits" and using subtle color changes in visually busy areas.
FractalWorks has been in development for almost 4 years, and is a mature, sophisticated program. It has been available during development as a free trial, and has thousands of users.
Ratings and Reviews
This is a lot of fun to use
I've been really enjoying Fractalworks over the past couple of years. It's amazing what patterns lie waiting to be discovered, deep in the Mandelbrot. I love the 3D and color schemes, too. This little $10 program is a lot of fun!
I Love Fractalworks
While this may not be the most sophisticated fractal program out there, it’s ability to render 3D images is impressive. Sometimes, innocent looking little fractals turn into awesome landscapes, embroidery, whatever, when rendered in 3D. If you love fractals, FractalWorks is a lot of fun, and produces some types of images that are just not available from other programs. The ability to tilt the image, and control the lighting angles, is impressive. I am in no way an expert, but I love fractals, and I found FractalWorks to be a very worthwhile addition to my arsenal of fractal programs. No problems of any kind, just a lot of fun! I highly recommend FractalWorks! You really can’t go wrong with this one!
I have had FractalWorks since version 1.0.3 and it has been nothing short of awesome. What sets it apart from the other Fractal applications is being able to view as well as edit a plot in 3D. And, as if that isn't enough, the support has been fast and efficient. The author is responsive and concientious. I couldn't ask for anything more.
