Making a Fractal Movie: MWAVES.FLC
(Mandelbrot waves wash over an image)
This is a 100-frame FLC animation of a segment of the Mandelbrot set.
Using a technique I explain elsewhere, I smoothly
vary a bitmapped perturbation of the m-set to generate the appearance
of fractal waves washing over an image.
Viewing the Movie
If you don't have a FLC player (eg, xflick or Xanim for X-windows), you can
download one for PC, Mac, or Unix from
Personally, I use DISPLAY v1.87 (available from
get disp187a.zip, disp187b.zip & disp187c.zip) on a PC to generate
and view FLCs.
Ok: to view the movie, save it to disk, use gunzip to uncompress it (your
web browser may do this automatically), then try your FLC viewer.
Modem users please note: this movie is 2.3 megabytes compressed.
