Fractal Fr0st - 0.4

Fractal Fr0st is an application to view and modify fractal flames in realtime, as they are being rendered on screen.

Vitor Bosshard
Fr0st allows you to visualize the results of an iterated funcion system as it is rendered. This is a very early version of it, with lots of planned funcionality missing. The only controls so far are moving the mouse to change the location of the active transform and the left and right keys to switch between transforms. It's hard to explain in non-technical terms, just try it out. If you know how to use Apophysis, you can let your own flame be rendered by Frost.


-Fr0st can now save flame files, including batches for 
creating animations.

-large increase in rendering speed.

-Support for variations added.

-In the source version, any script can be run hassle free
 just by double clicking on it. To achieve this, the 
script must include "from runscript import *" at the top. 
Otherwise, the script to be run needs to be specified as a 
command line argument to fr0st.exe.

-fixed various bugs, including one which crashed the 
program on the ocurrence of very large coordinate values.

-When assigning to values the y axis is no longer 
inverted. Fr0st is still 100% compatible with .flame files

-Scripting mechanism was significantly simplified, it's 
now much closer to Apophysis (The sample implementation)

-Fr0st can now be run without initializing the screen, 
useful for file generating scripts.
