yFract is a software for creating puristic
Here are some images I made with it:
Check out my Gallery
for more sample images in higher resolutions.
You can also create Videos and GIF-Animations with it
It is rich in functionality, stable and free for non-commercial use
No math knowledge is needed. In yFract you create art by “tuning in with
control dials”. You can
press or hold a "modifier key" and watch how the fractal changes into another
shape smoothly (WYSIWYG).
You can create your personal high quality wallpapers very quickly. The
Wallpapers are set and archived in a folder automatically with one keystroke.
You can create nice HD videos and GIF-Animations only in a few steps. yFract
supports 6 common video formats.
You can make your own prints (for framed printouts, posters, calendars,
t-shirts etc) with it quickly. It supports huge image resolutions up to 268
yFract supports fullscreen mode with OpenGL hardware acceleration
and multithreading. It’s more
like an artistic "game" than an application. Dive in and explore.
Lovely self-made text mode engine with minimalistic user interface. There are
many of options for customizing the Text Mode for all nostalgic nerds out there
More than 1600 well-sorted palettes to color the fractals with. You don’t need
to create your own palettes.
yFract has a a “Palette Room” where you can select and compare palettes easily. You can
watch how your fractal art will look like when it is printed out and framed,
hanging at your personal wall! You can add your own wall images easily by adding
an image file to a folder.
You can combine the current fractal with your personal "overlay image". This
image not just overdraws the Fractal, it is "injected" in the Fractal
formula in a secret way. Most simple images produce best results! You can use
this technique to create nice looking, unique logos and art.
Psychedelic real-time color cycling in various speeds, inverting of colors and
changing of cycle direction. Display it on a beamer and you don’t need drugs
yFract has a Realtime 3D Terrain Mode. Explore interesting terrains and
shapes made out of any fractal or image. Create high resolution Heightmap-Files that can be
imported into professional 3D Applications.
Full keyboard support and additional mouse support for better usability
It comes with a easy to use Installer/Uninstaller.
OK, enough advertisement :). Take a look how it looks in action (earlier
I am developing yFract since 2010 in spare time as a hobby project. More than 60
thousands lines of code were written. It should be
stable and fully functional :)
Windows operating system (Win 2000 - Windows 7 tested). Windows XP or higher
Modern CPU and graphics card are recommended
To create high quality prints or videos you need some memory. Minimum 4GB recommended.
