Mandlebrot Fractal V 1.0

This program renders the mandlebrot set and saves it as an image that you can download. The image will be found in the Mandelbrot.png file.

What is the mandlebrot set?

To put it simply, the mandlebrot set is a fractal which is plotted on the complex plane. To tell if a certain point is in the mandlebrot set you iterate over this equation:

z = z^2+c

Where z starts at 0 and c is a complex number in the form of x + iy.

If the absolute value of z ever goes over 2 (escapes), then it is Not in the set. Colors are rendered according to how soon they escape the set.

How to use:

Simply wait for the image to generate, then click on the spot where you want to zoom in on.


Now has zoom capabilities.

you can effectively half the rendering time by flipping the top half upsidedown

I thought about doing that already, but this would make zooming in a bit more complicated.
But, yes that would half the time it takes to load the entire fractal.
I think I will try doing that after I get the code right for zooming in and such, Thanks for pointing that out!
