Software review: Flarium24

 

In this short review, we will have a look at Flarium24. The last version is 8.9 and appeared in March 1998. It is the software I use for most of the fractals presented in this website.

License: Flarium24 is a freeware. It is available at the developper site. The source code is also provided.

Platforms: Windows 95, 98, NT, 2000

Ease of use: The software is very easy to use: just choose your fractal type and the filter you want to use, zoom and play with the colors. That's it.

Capabilities:

  • 160 fractal equations
  • 60 filters
  • You can create your own formulae
  • True color (24 bits) pictures
  • Color cycling with fixed step for each fundamental color (red, green, blue)
  • Maximum picture size: 256MB (around 89 million pixels)

Pros:

  • Freeware
  • Ease of use
  • Beautiful results

Cons:

  • Quite old: last version in 1998
  • Not very fast
