hi all

i want to create 2D fractal images. basically i want to create an application that will randomly generate unique patterns with changing color palettes. like Gold Lace software at www.x-graph.com. (http://www.x-graph.com.)
will OpenGL be the best solution for it? if anyone knows something then plz tell me.

thanx

You can do it with the help of a library called cg
Here's a link (look for fractal)

I guess that program needs fragment_program so it won't run on older hardware.

But I'm sure there are a million ways to do something, you just have to search for it.

hi
thanx V-man. Cg toolkit lets me to play with UI but what i should use to genearte inner calculations/algorithms? can anybody knows about any Api/library/toolkit for generating fast mathematical abstract images.
also what type of images are generated by Gold Lace (fractals or something else)?
thanx again
