  • Multi-tabbed IDE, with GLSL syntax highlighting
  • User widgets to manipulate parameter settings
  • Different ‘mouse to GLSL’ mapping schemes
  • High-resolution (tile) renderings
  • Support for simple animations
  • Modular GLSL programming – include other fragments
  • Includes raytracer for distance estimated systems
  • Many examples including Mandelbulb, Mandelbox, Kaleidoscopic IFS, Ducks Fractal, and Julia Quaternion

6 minutes to build a Max-patch and do a performance with it

The Rules:
– You have 6 minutes to build a Max-patch and do a performance with it.
– Start with an empty patch.
– Only use the standard objects that are part of Max/MSP/Jitter.
– Don’t use externals, pre-build external datafiles, help files, or anything of that kind.

Complex, Beautiful And Very Easy To Make Fractal Graphics (Windows)

Some of the images that I create here: flickr for example and videos on Vimeo take a lot of time and patience.  But I recently discovered this diamond and it’s not very rough, MandelBulb 3D.  This “little” work of genius is free and available at FractalForums I want to sincerely thank everyone involved in the development and distribution of this really wonderful piece of software.  After downloading and simple install, I just started “messing around” with various settings and quickly came to some wonderful results.  I didn’t see any documentation but this software just begs to let you experiment with the settings.  Try this software and support the site.  By the way, there are several other applications featured on FractalForums and they many certainly be great applications but I just haven’t had the time to test ride them as of now.  Have fun fractalizing.

ABOUT FRITZING
Fritzing is an open-source initiative to support designers, artists, researchers and hobbyists to work creatively with interactive electronics. We are creating a software and website in the spirit of Processing and Arduino, developing a tool that allows users to document their prototypes, share them with others, teach electronics in a classroom, and to create a pcb layout for professional manufacturing.

ImageJ 1.43: Powerful Image Processing And Analysis In Java (Cross Platform)

ImageJ Site Here

Runs Everywhere:
ImageJ is written in Java, which allows it to run on Linux, Mac OS X and Windows, in both 32-bit and 64-bit modes.
Open Source:
ImageJ and its Java source code are freely available and in the public domain. No license is required.
User Community:
ImageJ has a large and knowledgeable worldwide user community. More than 1700 users and developers subscribe to the ImageJ mailing list.
Macros:
Automate tasks and create custom tools using macros. Generate macro code using thecommand recorder and debug it using the macro debugger. More than 300 macros are available on the ImageJ Web site.
Plugins:
Extend ImageJ by developing plugins using ImageJ’s built in text editor and Java compiler. More than 500 plugins are available.
Toolkit:
Use ImageJ as a image processing toolkit (class library) to develop applets, servlets or applications.
Speed:
ImageJ is the world’s fastest pure Java image processing program. It can filter a 2048×2048 image in 0.1 seconds (*). That’s 40 million pixels per second!
Data Types:
8-bit grayscale or indexed color, 16-bit unsigned integer, 32-bit floating-point and RGB color.
File Formats:
Open and save all supported data types as TIFF (uncompressed) or as raw data. Open and save GIF, JPEG, BMP, PNG, PGM, FITS and ASCII. Open DICOM. Open TIFFs, GIFs, JPEGs, DICOMs and raw data using a URL. Open and save many other formats using plugins.
Image display:
Tools are provided for zooming (1:32 to 32:1) and scrolling images. All analysis and processing functions work at any magnification factor.
Selections:
Create rectangular, elliptical or irregular area selections. Create line and point selections. Edit selectoins and automatically create them using the wand tool. Draw, fill, clear, filter or measure selections. Save selections and transer them to other images.
Image Enhancement:
Supports smoothing, sharpening, edge detection, median filtering and thresholding on both 8-bit grayscale and RGB color images. Interactively adjust brightness and contrast of 8, 16 and 32-bit images.
Geometric Operations:
Crop, scale, resize and rotate. Flip vertically or horizontally.
Analysis:
Measure area, mean, standard deviation, min and max of selection or entire image. Measure lengths and angles. Use real world measurement units such as millimeters. Calibrate using density standards. Generate histograms and profile plots.
Editing:
Cut, copy or paste images or selections. Paste using AND, OR, XOR or “Blend” modes. Add text, arrows, rectangles, ellipses or polygons to images.
Color Processing:
Split a 32-bit color image into RGB or HSV components. Merge 8-bit components into a color image. Convert an RGB image to 8-bit indexed color. Apply pseudo-color palettes to grayscale images.
Stacks:
Display a “stack” of related images in a single window. Process an entire stack using a single command. Open a folder of images as a stack. Save stacks as multi-image TIFF files.
