Quaternion Julia Set Raytracer

Raytrace slices of quaternion julia sets with python and pyrex, with colorful shading (simple directional colored lights).

Clark Van Oyen
Renders single frames or movies of 3d slices of quaternion julia sets, given a point in quaternion space and a camera position. A movie corresponds to a path through quaternion space. Pyrex (Free python-like compiler) is required, as the raytracer is impossibly slow without it. A 500 by 500 pixel frame takes about 10 seconds to render on my computer.
