    Fluffbutt and Gina:
    Thank you both for the fractal generators sites. Fluffbutt, I guess you can see I can only count to 100, math just escapes me but thanks for the explanation on fractals.
    Thanks
    Bob

    Also note that by their nature fractals are recursive - very much like a kaleidoscope.

    In fact a true fractal really goes down forever cycling itself over and over. Just look at the default Mandelbrot, look to the left a bit then zoom in - oooh another Mandebrot inside the first.. and so on, until the limits of OUR math (not the fractal).

    A questions is there software that produces fractal images and if so where can you get it? Also is there a way to control the amount of busyness in a fractal in most fractals they seem really all over the place like a kaleidoscope.

    to get a freeware Fractal Explorer it's brilliant!!

    yes - edit the formula (if you don't know 4 dimensional match (and who does really) just PLAY!!), and lower the 'iterations' (it's depth really).

    hi bob,


    concerning fractals : make a search for fractal generators and you'll find plenty. There are even some free about

    started a topic Playing with Fractals

    Playing with Fractals

    Is there any use in Fractals for our painting bits and pieces?

    Maybe as overlays or masks, or even colour overlays?

    Check out some of these...
