This is rendering of one example settings which I deliver in Mandelbulber package. You will find it by loading 'FoldIntPow2 2.fract' example.

Together with Sebastian Jennen and Graeme McLaren we have finished new version of Mandelbulber. As you see this version provides very big bundle of changes and new features. 
This time main focus was on implementation of keyframe animation and to provide documentation for parameters (tooltips).

What is new?
- added keyframe animation feature. There is possible to define keyframes and interpolate different parameters between them.
- added UI for keyframe animation with table where is possible to edit each parameter.
- implemented different interpolation types for animation: Akima, Catmull-Rom, Linear. Prepared interpolation for angular parameters.
- added selection of interpolation type for each parameter separately
- added possibility to animate color palette
- added saving of animation into *.fract file in CSV format
- possible to change image format for saving animation frames
- added exporting of flight animation to keyframe animation and vice versa
- added camera collision detection before rendering of keyframe animation
- added tooltips in English, German and Polish languages (a lot of documentation here)
- added big bundle of example settings files
- histograms moved to separate dock widget
- added saving of zBuffer into PNG 16-bit and EXR floating point format (EXR supported only under Linux). zBuffer is normalized and mapped logarithmically
- added Program Settings dialog
- added settings for default file paths
- added JPG quality settings
- in preferences dialog can be defined which layers (color, zBuffer, alpha) will be attached to saved image and which bit precision will be used
- UI skin, style and font size can be set in settings dialog. You can set much smaller fonts to work on low resolution screen.
- added selection of program language in preferences dialog
- added render statistics table (under histograms)
- improved placement of auxiliary lights
- added auto-recovery function (possible to recover work after application crash)
- added experimental gamepad control for recording flight animations (actually works under Linux with Qt5.5)
- added 'GeneralizedFoldBox' formula
- added 'Mandelbulb5' formula (much extended Mandelbulb formula)
- added 'Mandelbox - extended' formula
- added 'Quaternion - extended' formula
- Added 'bailout' parameter to be able to change escape condition fractal iteration loop. By default for deltaDE it was 1e10, but lower value increases rendering speed even 5 times without loosing quality.
- added weight function for hybrid fractal components. On each fractal tab there is setting for weight (only available when hybrid mode is enabled). 
- constant multiplier parameter changed to 3D vector type
- improved importing old settings from Mandelbulber 1.21
- increased precision of some QSpinBox edit fields
- optimized reset view function (now is 100x faster!)
- added UNDO and REDO buttons below RENDER button
- increased view_distance_max to 50.0 for all toolbar presets
- increased view_distance_max calculated by ResetView function
- added new example files (also with animations)
- added loading/saving setting from/to clipboard as text (possible to copy/paste settings on community forums)
- added x2 :2 buttons for increase/decrease image resolution
- named Threads to monitor cpu / mem / ... by thread
- fixes issues with compatibility witch clang
- fixed bug: corrected problems found by Coverity Scan
- fixed bug: transform function for primitive objects didn't affected repeat operator
- fixed bug: alpha channel was always blank
- fixed bug: many typos corrected
- fixed bug: animation player crashed when in animation folder were non-image files
- fixed bug: program crashed when attempted to edit text in preview cell in Animation Flight table.
- fixed bug: program didn't consider locale settings for decimal points
- fixed bug: render of main image could start multiple times after frequent clicks on RENDER button
- fixed bug: Added waiting for all clients to be ready. It's needed for animation rendering, because sometimes client is not enough fast to take new job
- fixed bug: when rendering of animation was stopped there was saved incomplete image
- fixed bug: if QColorDialog was closed by 'Cancel' button it also took color and updated button color.
- fixed bug: if camera and target had the same coordinates, it produced NaN values for camera angles and top vector
- fixed bug: default value of color was repeated many times in MyColorButton tooltip

As always every feedback is appreciated!

I manage a group called The-FractalBest. Our mission is to form a collection of what artists consider to be their best fractal work. We'd love it if you would be willing to contribute. The link for the group is:
If my sig appears, there should be an information link / F.A.Q. page. If not, you can find it in the journals section of our group page.

incredible stuff here.
You need a beast of a PC to render these, dont you?
I've got 2-D fractal softwear on mine but my comp starts to choke to death the farther i zoom in. I can't imagine trying to render 3-D

Genialne prace, wrócę na pewno dogłębnie przeanalizować, przy odrobinie więcej czasu.

Świetnie się bawię używając Mandelbulber'a. Chyba nie ma lepszego programu niż Twój. Dzięki!
