  2. This is an extremely deep dive into the Mandelbrot set, to 2^316 (binary). In decimal that's 1E+95, or 1 with 95 zeros after it. The coordinates are identical to a similar deep zoom movie posted to YouTube by user metafis, but my version has higher resolution (648x480), and was rendered with 2x antialiasing (four pixels computed for every output pixel). It also has an improved palette, similar to the one used by the Wikipedia Mandelbrot page. The uncompressed version looks better of course--fractals are close to the worst case for video compression--but H.264 does surprisingly well.

    NOTE: The MPEG2 version (300MB) is now available for download. Search for "Chris Korda" over at archive.org and you'll find it.

    The video was rendered using my own fractal software, called Fractice, which supports distributed processing using a client/server architecture. The render took five months, using a cluster of up to 20 dual-core PCs on a LAN, all running the Fractice rendering server. The actual number of servers varied over the five-month period but averaged around 15. Rendering only occurred at night.

    Fractice is a free, open-source fractal explorer/renderer for XP/Vista. It supports navigation, history thumbnails, previews, antialiasing, deep zoom, printing, posters, palettes, multicore and distributed processing, movie recording, undo/redo, color cycling, and job control. It also has VJ features, such as mixing, mirroring, origin motion, palette tweening, dual-monitor, and MIDI.

  3. No matter how deep you go, there's always more.

    This movie took quite a few days to calculate.

    In 1993, when I first made a poster of the image i call "blue oyster spiral," which is a zoom at about the 100 Billion X magnification level inside the Mandelbrot Fractal, it took 34 high end Macs 3 days to render it. Today, the same poster can be rendered on one typical PC in just a few hours.

    Of course, since the Mandelbrot Fractal is infinite in nature, i can still easily find spots i want to explore that take a present day computer months to calculate.

    Fractal: This fractal zoom movie was rendered at 640*480 resolution with Fractal Extreme on a PC running win XP and an AMD Athlon 64X2 Dual Core Processor 4200+ 2.21 GHz, 2.0 GB Ram.

    Google ‘Mandelbrot Fractal’ for more info. I’m fascinated that all of this complexity is derived from iterating this simple equation: z -> z^2 + c, where 'c' is a complex number such as (x+i) and I is the square root of -1. That simple little equation can generate an infinite universe of possibilities. Scientists have speculated that there might be such an equation to define our own universe. What if everything in the entire universe comes from the calculating of one simple little equation? What does that mean for existence? To paraphrase Dr. Stephen Wolfram:

    If the whole history of our universe can be obtained by following definite simple rules, then at some level this history has the same kind of character as a construct such as the Mandelbrot Fractal. And what this suggests is that it makes no more or less sense to talk about the meaning of phenomena in our universe than it does to talk about the meaning of phenomena in the Mandelbrot fractal.

  5. A movie zooming out of the Mandelbrot set, generated by FractalNet, my distributed fractal renderer.

    This video required a total of 1,455 billion iterations (an average of 484 million iterations per frame).
