raimuraitoRaimuraito ~ v1.7
OS: Win9x/Me
author: Yasuo Kamei

Raimuraito is a new fractal generator that can produce some very unique and interesting pictures. It’s still in its very early stages of development (so it has a few bugs and is quite slow), but judging by what it can already do (using flowers, fishes, rings and other methods to contour the fractal figures), there’s a lot to be expected once it reaches maturity. Certainly, one generator to keep an eye on.

Root-IFSRoot-IFS ~ v0.006
OS: Win9x/Me/NT
author: Stephen C. Ferguson
url: http://tierazon.com
As Cold_IFS, Root-IFS plots orbit trajectories using an IFS based formula. The images it produces are usually associated with flame fractals in other fractal generating programs. Pictures can be saved in several different formats; unlike its predecessor it saves parameter values to a file. Also features a button to generate pictures randomly. Compressed (ZIP) file includes source code.

saturn & titanSaturn & Titan ∼ v4.2.1
OS: Win/Linux
author: Mark R. Eggleston
url: https://element90.wordpress.com
Saturn is the older brother of Neptune (I’m strickly speaking about fractal generators), and as such can generate fractal pictures. Notice: Don’t judge the program by the screenshot included in here: it’s just an image created to adorn the screen capture, not to demonstrate Staurn’s full potential. Just visit its website to take a look at better sample images. Saturn can save images, called seeds, as PNG files. Then, you can import the seeds in Titan to create and save images of an even larger size. I don’t know why these two programs aren’t integrated in a single unit, but that’s the way they work (both applications come in one package and install automatically). I do like the fact that all image’s parameters are easy to access from a secondary window, that you can open alongside the image window and keep real-time track of changes, a nice thing to learn what  each variable can do. Extensive documentation available as a PDF file from the parent website.

Sterling-wareSterling-ware ~ v1.7
OS: Win
author: Stephen C. Ferguson
url: http://tierazon.com
Point-and-click zooming at an incredible speed. This new version includes sine trap functions, Lyapunov exponents, orbit counting, the Triangle Inequality Variation by Damien M. Jones, and “LDerivatives.” Version 1.7 adds some extra new formulas. For those of you curious enough, all past versions of Sterling-ware are available with source code from Iterations et Flarium 24 web site. Source code available. The first version of Sterling-ware is still freely available from Ferguson’s website.

sterling2Sterling2 ~ v1
OS: Win
author: Stephen C. Ferguson & Tad Boniecki
url: http://soler7.com
Sterling2 is a derivative work of Stephen C. Ferguson’s Sterling-ware fractal generator and Tad Boniecki’s particular collection of 50 new fractal formulas to produce a myriad of different images unique to this program, but superimposed –so to speak– over the original software (they feel and look identical). Contrary to Ferguson’s generators of the same name (still freeware but requiring a membership payment to access the collection), this one is freely available from Boniecki’s website.

tiera-zonTiera-Zon ~ v2.9
OS: Win
author: Stephen C. Ferguson
url: http://tierazon.com
Tiera-Zon combines great features with great speed. Highly recommended for computers with slow processors. Important: It comes with coloring methods to the ones used in previous versions, so keep those handy in case you need to reproduce earlier images as intended (older parameter files will render, but with totally different, and not necessarily better, color interpretations). Versions 2.8, 2.7, 1.0, and 0.7 are still available from Iterations-et-Flarium24. Tends to crash on Windows XP if user changes parameters too fast. Source code also available. Two older versions (Tiera-Zon 0.07 and Tiera-Zon 2.7) are freely available in Ferguson’s website, if you want to try this excellent fractal generator; it’s my all-time favorite, if you haven’t noticed yet.

tiera-zon2Tiera Zon 2 ~ v0.6
OS: Win
author: Stephen C. Ferguson
url: http://tierazon.com
Tiera Zon 2 works similar to Tiera-Zon, but its formulas and filters are accessible from a secondary window instead of the menu bar. Additional formulas and parameters are also available. This one is known to be slower than its sibling, Tiera-Zon. Source code available. Several earlier versions (v0.01 t0 v0.05) are freely available at Ferguson’s website.

TS Fractal ExplorerTS Fractal Explorer ~ v3.01 beta
OS: Win9x/NT/Me/XP
author: Sergei Dolgov
url: http://home.onego.ru
This is a fractal generating program that uses the TS Graphics Library v1.0 beta (as if that were important) to plot its images. It’s pretty simple and slow. Images, which doesn’t look that good, can be saved as BMP files. May have some secrets deep inside that I haven’t discovered. No documentation.

Windows Chaos Image Generator Windows Chaos Image Generator ~ v2.00
OS: Win9x/NT/2000
author: Thomas Hövel
url: http://www.th-soft.com
WinCIG is another very simple Mandelbrot set generator that is very easy to use. Most of its processes are automated, so users only have to use the mouse to draw a little rectangle covering the region they want to zoom in. Automatically, a small window with some extra parameters will pop-up, allowing the modification of any value. Also comes with a palette editor. Images can be saved in BMP format.

Xaos GNU Xaos ~ v3.6
OS: Platform Independent
author: Thomas Marsh and Jan Hubicka
url: http://matek.hu
alt: http://sourceforge.net
XaoS is a real-time fractal zoomer that can calculate Mandelbrot and other fractals significantly fast and on the go. Supports palette changing and the images can be saved to PNG format. New version is only available as a platform independent package (that is, same package for multiple operating systems, specifically: Windows, BSD, Mac and Linux). It’s an open source project, so the source code is available.
