This is a Julia set rendered with an orbit trap. The orbit trap is a square, and the trapped points are further subdivided into two regions depending on whether the trapped point is closer to the real or the imaginary axis. In this image, a red and a green gradient are used for …

This is one of the first fractals I produced after starting development on extending Fractal Domains to generate fractals based on rational maps. This is a Julia set generated from the polynomial x^3 + c. I don’t recall what value of “c” was used, as I haven’t yet implemented the “Save” function …

## Candy Spiral

The only difference between this and “Candy Squares” is the orbit trap parameter “Multiple” is changed from “First Captured” to “Minimum Captured.” This causes the shapes that previously overlapped to melt together, but it also causes smaller sub-spirals that were previously hidden to appear and add some dramatic details to an already attractive …

## Candy Squares

This is pretty much the same as the “Candy Discs” fractal, except the shape of the orbit trap is changed from circular to square. The effect is similar to “Candy Discs.” The sharp edges causes an interesting jagged spiral pattern, but it really isn’t different enough from “Candy Discs” to warrant its own …

## Candy Discs

Starting with the “Candy Drop” fractal, changing the orbit trap dwell method from “By Distance” to “By Ratio” produces this fractal. The same general shape and the same set of colors, but now the colors look much livelier that they did in the “Candy Drop” fractal. Below, there is a parameter file for …

## Candy Drops

I got this fractal when I switched from a stalk fractal to a circular orbit trap. I increased the trap radius and fiddled with some other orbit parameters, but I didn’t change the color map at all. If you compare this to the stalk fractal on the previous page, you’ll see they don’t …
