Another Fractint test animation, this one using the Mandelcloud function (the Mandelbrot orbit cloud or the "Buddhabrot"). I really like the images this method creates but this animation is a bit dull. This one is a simple translation along the Y axis. As you move along the Y axis and part of the Mandelbrot set disappears off the edge of the screen, the corresponding orbit points also disappear, and the new part of the image that appears on the other edge of the screen is shown by the new orbit points that appear. The "fade in" at the start is accomplished by simply increasing the number of iterations.

1200 frames - 1280x720, no anti-aliasing - render time 8 hours 53 minutes
