What can I say about this fractal animation? how about the bare facts. I will let you make up your mind about the fractal animation itself and hope you leave a comment.
so here are the facts...
Two days to set up, and then six months to render, (could have been quicker but unfortunately I have a real job): resulted in around forty 1.9GB uncompressed .AVI files. I added watermarking, fx and time remapping, before multi-pass encoding the 80GB video in h264 (32,768 kbit/sec) and the audio in AAC.
The final result is a very high quality 2BG .MP4
The final magnification of the Mandelbrot fractal is 6.066e+228 (2^760)
want some perspective?
1E6 Vancouver Island 1E9 Jupiter's radius 1E12 Earth's orbit 1E18 distance to Alpha Centauri 1E21 Milky Way galaxy 1E30 large doesn't cover it! 1E42 size of a proton to the universe.
1E228 incomprehensibly big...but we did it!
For the record, 1 to 6e228 is like expanding a proton to 7000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 times the size of the visible universe. (i.e. mindrape)
(Proton has 1 femtometer diameter, universe has 93 billion light year diameter)
If you were actually traveling into the fractal, you would be moving faster than the speed of light.
