Autodwell Recalibration

This is one of a number of features planned for future releases of Mandelbrot Explorer. Comment or vote below. To see the full list, visit our Planned Features page.

The algorithm for calculating the maximum dwell required at different magnifications needs reworking. At larger magnifications, some areas are being drawn black that clearly shouldn't be.

This feature has been set to "in progress", in that data-gathering is underway. There is a 4-core machine now working round the clock drawing random fractals at various magnifications, to build a picture of what maximum dwells would be needed at those magnifications to keep the error-levels within the desired tolerances. Once enough data has been gathered, this can then be analysed statistically to come up with some new autodwell algorithms.
