Flames Publisher's description
from Scott Draves
Algorithmically generated images and animations
The Fractal Flames software was originally written in 1992 and released as open source, aka free software. Since then it has developed a lot.
Flames has been incorporated into many graphics programs and ported to most operating systems. The shape of each image is specified by a long string of numbers - a genetic code of sorts.
You can create your own flames with the Apophysis interactive designer (for windows) or with the gimp's flame plug-in (for linux and OSX). Or you can use the Electric Sheep distributed screen saver to join the collective evolution of animated fractal flames.
What's New in This Release:В· Added fuzz testing with zzuf to the regression tests. 'Strip' mode and genomes with the zoom parameter used now break into pieces properly. insert_palette fixed (broken a few versions ago.) fixed twintrian variation when small weights are used. various rare segfaults and memory leaks fixed. 'palette_mode' attribute added to flame element for smoother palette interpolation in slow animations; possible values are 'step' and 'linear' ('step' mode is default and matches previous behaviour.
System Requirements:No special requirements.
