Description from the packaging.

Fractal Frenzy Visions Of Chaos contains thousands of original fractal images in a truly spectacular collection by Lee H. Skinner.

One day I received in the mail my copy of Scientific American with what at first glance at the cover appeared to be some aspect of solar corona. Instead, it was a fractal image of part of the Mandelbrot set. When I then read the article and saw that this beautiful picture (and others in the issue) was calculated by iterating with complex arithmetic on an absurdly simple formula (Z squared + c), I felt stunned, dumbfounded, flabbergasted, that such richly decorative beauty of such intricate complexity could itself develop out of such a simple formula and algorithm.

This disc contains 2,010 images in 1024 x 768 x 256 colors and the same images in royalty free 640 x 480 x 256 colors. This disc works on a PC with a VGA video card and gives best results with 512K or 1 megabyte of video RAM. This disc also works on the Macintosh and gives best results with high resolution video.

Index files describe each image and the formula used to compute the images. The images on this CD-ROM are categorized by fractal type. Walnut Creek includes a record of ancestors of many images. Ancestors are another image from which the current image was generated through either a transform or a zoom. In most directories, you can use this feature to trace yourself all the way out; sometimes zooming outward up to 14 times. The fracint program used to generate the images is also included.
