Hello,

I was about to explore the Mandelbrot set when I ran into a glitch while rendering. It looks exactly like the kind of artifact I get when periodicity checking fails. I can usually just turn it of, but this was using perturbation (precise).

Here's an image:

The problem occurs only in one of the two layers (the one that uses Triangle Inequality Average)

Parameters:

Hi Phillip,

The Triangle Inequality Average coloring unfortunately isn't compatible with perturbation calculations.

OK, that explains it. Can I turn perturbation off and render it normally instead?

Unfortunately there is no way to do this at the moment -- I still need to implement that for these type of coloring algorithms. What you could do is make a copy of the Mandelbrot formula in Standard.ufm, and remove the perturbinit and perturbloop sections from this copy.
