Mandelbulber 0.99 brings 360 degrees panoramic views to 3D fractals
A new version of Mandelbulber, a free 3D fractals explorer, comes packaged with built-in equirectangular projection rendering for making 360° panoramic views. It's a very nice supplement to previously added fish-eye projection.
As you can easily guess, it's a very nice supplement to previously added fish-eye projection.
Apart from that quite a bit of attention was paid to auxiliary lights: you can set them now with a mouse click in the Render View window, as well as make them fly in keyframe animation mode.
The "Init 3D navigator" feature was improved as well to check the real size of a fractal and move the camera according to actual rotation angle and FOV. That helps viewing the whole fractal by default. The feature is called "Reset view" now.
Mandelbulber is available for Linux, Windows and Mac.
