For instance, the description states that "All images were lovingly rendered by 12 CPU cores running 24/7 for 6 months.". You mean, 12 GPU, right ? Otherwise, do we talk about 12 dies or 6 CPU + Hyperthreading ? Did you use a rendering computer or an ordinary workstation ?

After one spends some time exploring the Mandelbrot set, one starts getting a feel of where to go to find interesting points.

I ask because there are less complex areas to the side of the zoom center that look like they would show a uniform flat color forever. On the other hand I find it hard to imagine that you could have manually discovered a special coord that deep down that works at all levels of zoom.felixnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-62573014049470339.post-20202373209270457182011-04-02T21:00:45.695-04:002011-04-02T21:00:45.695-04:00Check out this excellent summary of existing fract...Check out this excellent summary of existing fractal programs.

Even if Moore's Law continued unabated for trillions of millenia, and all the mass in the universe were turned into data storage to simply contain the specific coordinates of ever-deeper points of exploration, the Mandelbrot Set still could not be fully explored. You could say that it's more complex than the universe... if not for the fact that the universe has the Mandelbrot Set in it."deepskyfrontierhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/13273362483871259959noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-62573014049470339.post-59778769815060522532010-02-10T22:11:20.845-05:002010-02-10T22:11:20.845-05:002.1E275.
