Video Garden

There's more to a fractal than a still frame can show you.

Every fractal render is neighbors to an effectively infinite number of other cool fractal patterns, and when the parameters are set up right I can make beautiful animations exploring the fractals at a deeper level. I used to upload them to various tube and social platforms, where they'd get compressed so bad that the fun details all turned into blurry soup. Fractals are almost exactly the sort of thing a bitrate limit hurts the most. But now that I'm a higher level wizard, I've moved my best videos onto a custom video host that should send them to you in the same crisp quality I designed them with.

With that quality comes a warning, some of these are large files. They're all set up for streaming, so you can watch as they download, but by then end you might be pulling down several hundred megabytes of data per video. Make sure you're on a connection where that won't be a problem before trying to wander through this garden.

Most of these were created with Fractorium, a tool with animation sequencing code from decades ago. But in the 5 years I've been using it, I've become one of the world's Fractorium animation experts, a title few have ever cared to claim. Besides Fractorium, I usually compile my videos in Da Vinci Resolve. When other tools were used, you'll see them in the descriptions.

Eye Opener

One of my all time bests, this vibrant fractal render just keeps going with wild geometry. I love the music in this one too, unmute it if you have space to listen.


Magical fractals with a nighttime vibe, and a soundtrack that always gets me moving. Originally the keyframes for this were part of another project, but they happened to make such a fun animation too.

Level Up

One time, I got stuck leveling up for an infinite minute. Like the effect forgot to turn off after the initial flourish, and just kept going. I wasn't really sure what to do, so I grooved to it for a while, and it eventually faded. Here's what it looked like.

Sky Wizard

More than any other, this is the render that drove me to set up better video hosting. These spacey fractal textures are sublime, but they lose a lot when they get blurred. Hopefully now you can get as lost in it as I do.

How I Make Fractal Art

"Heat" Timelapse

Ever wondered what it looked like to make a fractal in Fractorium? This timelapse shows the process start to finish in about 4 min. Of course, it takes me much longer in real time.

Moody, dark, and surreal. This one isn't as complicated, geometrically, but it's still quite enchanting. There's a distinct feel to a stretched shape in flame fractals, and when used right it makes a pretty animation.


An early attempt to take a fractal animation, stylize a frame with Style Transfer, and then interpolate that frame to the rest of the video with EBSynth. The result was a lot better than I expected, especially with the impossible geometry of the underlying fractal, but it's also true that the abstract design compliments the messiness in a way that live video wouldn't.

Fiber Optic

An early Fractorium animation, I think this was the first one where a friend reached out unprompted to say they liked it. Some of these are square because that was what worked best for social media back in the day.

Fossilized Sunset

A Fractorium render, stylized with Style Transfer, then kaleidoscoped through Da Vinci Resolve. These are lots of fun to do, and I spent most of a summer playing with this particular workflow.
