Ray-traced fractals

Fractals of another kind

These are julia fractals raytraced in POV-Ray, a freeware tracing program. Ray-tracing is an altogether different technique from drawing fractals. In ray-tracing, a virtual 3-d object is created in computer space, then simulated light rays are projected onto the object and the reflections recorded by a postulated camera. Ray-traced images are generally recognized as photo-realistic. Here, julia-fractal objects were created, re-shaped, re-sized, rotated and illuminated for the ray-trace camera.
