So I am taking a class of Numerical Analysis on college, which means that I have a moral obligation of writing a Newton-Raphson fractal.
If you dont know the Newthon-Raphson method take a look here. More info about the fractal here.
For now the colours are shitty, there is no antialias nor shading. I pretend to improve the program and as always release it as free software.
So, I am writing a Newthon-raphson fractal in C, but it looks like a screwed mandelbrot set. wtf
When I started to colour the attractor while they were generated I made a simple algorithm that covers the HSV with full saturation and value while cycling the hue. A little after I made a algorithm that goes to one colour to another, very simple. Also I made one that reads colours from a file and it was VERY SLOW because I was always reading from the disk.
Now I rewrote the algorithm. It takes the colours from the disk and leave it on the RAM, where it can be read way faster. Those images were coloured using this method, reading a palette from the disk.
I am very pleased with the results.
A couple of blurred images. If I put too many parameters in the equations the points moves around quicker and have less grouped common areas.
