This year, my CPGE graduation project is a talk about fractals, so I might as well post the things I came up with. I learnt a lot, discovered many types of fractals I didn't know about, and I must say, I'm quite proud of the things I came up with, considering I've only been using SDL, numpy/matplotlib or GLSL to make them.

IFS fractals :


The very well-known. Needless to introduce the Sierpinski triangle.

BUT ! Did you know its lesser-known 3D brother ?

ET fractals (also called complex fractals, I'll let you guess why) :

The very well-known Julia sets with the usual ETA (Escape-Time Algorithm) rendering :



Alright alright, you'll have your Mandelbrot set this time too ... but with orbit trap rendering !



Orbit fractals (the ones I didn't know about) :

And I turn the def low ...



And I turn the def up !


Fun fact about this one, it's so far the one and only time I ever had to calculate a number to the power 201. No kidding.

unsigned int colorGradient(float t)
{
unsigned char *pixels = gradient->pixels;
float st = pow(t - 1, 201) + 1;
int offset = (int)(st * (gradient->w - 1)) * 3;
return (pixels[offset]) + (pixels[offset + 1] << 8) + (pixels[offset + 2] << 16);
}



And there we go, that's about it. I might post more as I run more experiments, because why not.

That 3D Sierpinski triangle looked pretty cool and I like those other fractals :)

You killed my z-sorting though  :P

DJ Omnimaga

That looks cool O.O. I wonder how fast it would spin with z-sorting, though? :P

TheMachine02

There is z-sorting (but totally wrong --')  Btw, I didn't say it in my previous post, I jsut love all the fractals screens :D

Come on, you're not supposed to use a model :P

Also thanks for the compliments guys, I'm glad you like them \o/ I can explain the rendering process for all of them, if you wish to have some insight into how it works.

I am curious about how fast TheMachine02's 3D Sierpinski triangle would be if he used dots to render it. :P
