"There is no excellent beauty which hath not some strangeness in the proportion."
What is Gnofract 4D?Gnofract 4D is a free, open source program which allows anyone to create beautiful images called fractals. The images are automatically created by the computer based on mathematical principles. These include the Mandelbrot and Julia sets and many more. You don't need to do any math: you can explore a universe of images just using a mouse. It runs on Unix-based systems such as Linux and FreeBSD and can also be run on Mac OS X.
Why Gnofract 4D?
In short, I believe it's the one of the best fractal packages currently available for Linux. It is:
- easy to use, with a polished, modern UI
- very fast, with high-performance multi-threaded rendering
- flexible, with an unlimited number of fractal functions and vast numbers of options
- widely used, with over 50,000 downloads to date
This app is very cool. I put it on Mom's Fedora 12 PC. Need to install it on mine too.
