|Full description=XaoS is a real-time interactive fractal zoomer. It displays any of eleven fractal formulas to let you zoom smoothly into the fractal. The program's optimization techniques save about 97% of calculations needed for the next frame to make zooming as fast as possible. Various coloring modes, formulas, planes and palettes are supported. Xaos can also record and replay animations using simple script language. Recently added features include: 10 each of out-, in-, and true-coloring modes, boundary detection, periodicity checking, unrolled calculation loops, real-time image rotation, 50+ examples, and an AA driver that provides high quality ASCII art rendering at many platforms, SMP support, post calculation filters (motion blur, random dot stereograms in animation, interlace filter, two edge detection filters, star-firld generator, emboss, palette emulation filter), and dithering on devices without user defind palette.

GNU XaoS

http://matek.hu/xaos/
Real-time fractal zoomer

XaoS is a graphical program that generates fractal patterns and allows you to zoom in and out of them infinitely in a fluid, continuous manner. It also includes tutorials that help to explain how fractals are built. It can generate many different fractal types such as the Mandelbrot set. Various coloring modes are provided for both the points inside and outside the selected set. In addition, switching between Julia and Mandelbrot fractal types and displaying planes is provided.

The first version written by Thomas Marsh was a simple Mandelbrot viewer, later modified by Jan Hubicka to support high frame-rate zooming. Other additions were later made including autopilot, palette changing, PNG saving, and fractal inversion, making GNU XaoS a fast portable real-time interactive fractal zoomer.
