Chaotica is a commercial fractal art editor and renderer extending flam3 and Apophysis's functionality. There is also a free version with limited render resolution and animation length.


Chaotica began as a personal project in 2010 but has since been handed over to Glare Technologies, the developers of Indigo Renderer.


Chaotica implements a generalized iterated function system and features a modern rendering engine based on advanced algorithms not found in open-source IFS implementations.[1] It has an animation editor, selective randomization of parameters, and imaging controls such as different anti-aliasing modes and RGB-channel response curves.
