그림 17.291. Fractal trace filter options

“Fractal trace” filter options


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's options: TODO

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


The result of this filter can be larger than the original image. With the default Adjust option, the layer will be automatically resized as necessary when the filter is applied. With the Clip option the result will be clipped to the layer boundary.
