What is Chaotica?

Chaotica is a next-generation fractal art application, designed for both novices and professional artists.

Novice users can enjoy editing randomised fractals to easily produce gorgeous, customised desktop wallpapers, perfect for HD displays.

Professional users will particularly value the fast, modern rendering engine. Print-sized images are easily produced, and real-time imaging controls dramatically accelerate your workflow.

What is fractal art?

Fractal art is a digital art medium with a very rich creative space, based on geometry and recursion.

Chaotica's user interface abstracts much of the maths away to provide a fluid artistic process.

Since its invention in 1981, IFS fractals have been popularised by Flam3 and Apophysis. Chaotica extends the creative possibilities of these programs in a powerful, production-oriented environment.

Join us in pushing the limits of fractal art!
