What are Flame fractals? Images of great beauty, endless unique textures.

Fractal Serendipity allows you to create beautiful fractal images in seconds.
You can easily create lots of neat fractal images that can be rendered to any size.
These images can be imported into other graphic apps and become part of bigger creative works.

Fractal Serendipity is a modularized, "a la carte" version of the Fractal Architect 2 app (also sold on the Mac App Store). Out of the box, Fractal Serendipity supports fractal images and fractal files containing a single fractal. You can purchase upgrade modules to access additional features which the base product does not have.
When fully upgraded, Fractal Serendipity is equivalent to the Fractal Architect 2 app. (No need to buy both apps!)

Art should be fun and Fractal Serendipity has lots of different tools to play with:

◆ Random generation - easy starting point for creating new fractals - lots of Creative control
◆ Preview Home Base - point of departure to other editors - adjust the fractal orientation, position, aspect ratio
◆ Variants creator - wow so fast and so unpredictable - create random color, transform, matrix, final transform, and symmetry variations
◆ Thumbnail Grids - ultra flexible -resizable - Quicklook support- see Variants of any thumbnail- see XML text view - full drag & drop - copy/paste
◆ Thumbnail Stash - keep the best images of the session in the stash - one click to create a fractal collection from the Stash

Optional Module Upgrades (via In-app Purchases) -----------
◆ Traditional Triangle (Transform) Editor - Apophysis-like fractal editing with complete control over every parameter.
 ◆ Color Gradient Editor - which colors makes your fractal come alive?
 ◆ Cross Breeder - want to create fractal babies? What will you get by breeding two different fractals?
◆ Keyframes - create collections of your favorite fractals or use them to create video animations - easy assembly of keyframe collections by drag & drop
PDF Folios - create PDF Folios showing all the keyframes in a file
Video Animation - create looping/morphing video animation from multiple keyframes - create video clips by animating fractal parameters in the Triangle editor & Cross Breeder
Finder Quicklook - Quicklook can show either a single large image, a PDF Folio, or a Video animation for a fractal file
- Best keyframes management, archival, and video animation production in the business
- Create long looping/morphing video animations from keyframe collections (similar to Electric Sheep screensaver)
- PDF Folio creation from keyframe collections.
- Render Direct to Video as well as Image File Batch Rendering support

State of the Art Rendering (no module upgrades required) -------------------------------
◆ GPU Accelerated Rendering - OpenCL rendering on either CPU or GPU (some restrictions apply)
◆ Flam4CUDA rendering engine for OpenCL - supports all Flam3 variations
◆ Render to PNG, JPEG, TIFF, JPEG 2000, BMP, or EXR image file formats
◆ Incremental Rendering option allowing you to add extra quality to image renders
◆ Rendering state can be saved to a file, so you can pause & resume at any time.
◆ Repeatable (tweak-able) fast render post-processing to get the very best images you can
◆ Histogram view - helps you see diagnose hard-to-render fractals
◆ State of the Art seamless tiling makes it possible to create giant images

Electric Sheep and Apophysis compatible (pre 7-X). Export for Apophysis.
