Package Request (Fractal Rendering Software) - QFractalNow
Closed, WontfixPublic

Description

Solus has no fractal rendering software at all. This package is still in active development and is more current than Gnofract 4D I previously suggested and closed. We would want the GUI version and not just the command line tool due to the complexity of the maths used. Source code on the site. Quote : You can theoretically build FractalNow from sources for any Posix-y platform, provided Pthread, GMP, MPFR, MPC and Qt libraries are available for it.

FractalNow provides users with tools to generate pictures of various types of fractals quickly and easily. It is made of both a command line tool, FractalNow, and a graphical tool, QFractalNow. The graphical tool, based on Qt library.
