FractalNow is a command line tool that generates pictures of fractals as Portable PixMap (PPM) files. It is multi-threaded and implements advanced algorithms and heuristics that make computation very fast compared to most existing free fractal generators. See QFractalNow, a graphical tool to explore fractals.
-h Print help. -q Quiet mode, only errors are displayed. -v Verbose mode. -j <NbThreads> Specify number of threads (see help for default value). -g <GradientFile> Specify gradient file, overriding gradient from configuration/ rendering file. -l <FloatType> Specify float type: single Single precision. double Double precision. ldouble Long double precision. mp Multiple precision. -L <MPPrecision> Specify precision of Multiple Precision (MP) floats (see help for default value). -a <AntiAliasingMethod> Specify anti-aliasing method: none By default. blur Gaussian blur. oversampling Oversampling. adaptive Smart oversampling. -s <AAMSize> Specify size for anti-aliasing: Radius for blur (values in [2.5, 4] are generally good). Scale factor for oversampling ([3, 5] is good for a high quality image). Scale factor for adaptive (integers between 3-5 are good for a high quality image). -p <AAMThreshold> Threshold for adaptive anti-aliasing (see help for default value). -i <QuadSize> Maximum size of quadrilaterals for linear interpolation. Default is good for no visible loss of quality (see help for default value). 1 means no interpolation (all pixels are computed). -t <Threshold> Dissimilarity threshold for quad interpolation. Default is good for no visible loss of quality (see help for default value). A quadrilateral that shows too dissimilar values at its corners will be computed, as opposed to interpolated.
