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, allows users to explore fractals intuitively and generate pictures. Both tools are entirely multi-threaded and implement advanced algorithms and heuristics that make computation very fast compared to most existing free fractal generators.
It features intuitive graphical user-interface (QFractalNow) to explore fractal space easily, a command-line tool (FractalNow) that can work on machines without a desktop, and could be used by scripts to produce animations, several formulas available, various types of coloring available, multiple anti-aliasing methods to produce high quality images, advanced algorithms and heuristics to speed up computation, and support of arbitrary precision floating point numbers.
