Fractal Trace

Filter Fractal Trace applied

This filter transforms the image with the Mandelbrot fractal: it maps the image to the fractal.

Rysunek 17.297. Fractal trace filter options

„Fractal trace” filter options


Presets, Input Type, Clipping, Blending Options, Preview, Split view
[Uwaga] Uwaga

These options are described in Sekcja 2, „Common Features”.

Fractal type

You choose between Mandelbrot and Julia.

X1, X2, Y1, Y2, Depth

These parameters are similar to Left, Right, Top, Bottom and Iterations parameters of the Fractal Explorer filter. They allow you to vary fractal spreading and detail depth.


Julia seed X and Y value positions. Only shown when fractal type is Julia.

Bailout length


Abyss policy

Mapping image to fractal may reveal empty areas. These options allows you to set displacement behavior on active layer or selection edges. They are described in Abyss policy
