225 megapixel Mandelbrot set (700 iterations per pixel)
Reply
Posted 2009-03-08, 02:15 PM
I was unable to find anything even remotely as large via Google, so I decided to render my own behemothesque Mandelbrot set on my computer (to avoid completely consuming the resources of the Zelaron server for a day or two). I'll probably make a 1 gigapixel edition tomorrow, possibly with additional color ranges. Also, I'll host the picture on my home PC in 1-2 days, to avoid wasting too much of Zelaron's bandwidth.

Edit: Firefox gave me an error about the image being broken at first, then I tried it on another computer, and it worked fine. I proceeded to try again on the former computer, and then it worked. Some browsers are probably prone to report errors due to its size.

It's much more efficient to render parts on an as-needed basis using a purpose built program. I once wrote such a program, but VS7 doesn't seem to understand my VS4 project nor its use of MFC

The Mandelbrot set is technically only the completely black area surrounded by the bright red. The Mandelbrot set contains all points in imaginary coordinate space (x+yi) that approach or orbit zero when recursively fed into the function f(g)=g*g+g. When one does a rendering of the set, generally, you itterate each point untill the absolute distance to the current value is outside a preset range (usually 2) or the maximum number of itterations is reached. The number of itterations required to determine that a point did not fall in the set is rendered as a color. Chruser's render varies the brightness of one hue as the maximum number of itterations is reached. Another popular methed is a circular pallette containing a spectrum of colors, as this shows better detail as one zooms in.
