JWildfire Fractal Generator

Fractal flames are a digital art form created by drawing geometric shapes by adding and manipulating “variations“. Fractals have an infinite level of detail, which makes them a perfect artistic medium for exploring concepts like infinity and self-similarity. They are beautiful, fascinating, and mysterious. They are self-similar patterns that repeat themselves in a never-ending loop. Fractals are found in nature – from the cells of plants, to the shapes of snowflakes, to the design of grains of sand.

The Best Fractal Art Generator !

This is why we have JWildfire , so you can experiment indefinitely to get the art you love, without having to learn the detailed mathematics or code behind it all. The fractal flame iterated function process originally devised by Scott Draves, is probably too complex for most to get their heads around, but you don’t have to! It uses variations to create image fractals which can be rendered with unique code. The flames that are created can be tailored with brightness and gamma correction among many parameters and functions set before rendering.

Just released! Version 6.5!!
