Vimeo version (13m.44s)

What can I say?  how about the bare facts.

I will let you make up your mind about the animation itself and hope you leave a comment.

so here are the facts…

Two days to set up, and then six months to render, resulted in around forty 1.9GB uncompressed anti-aliased x 4 .AVI files. I added watermarking, fx and time remapping, before multi-pass encoding the 80GB video in h264 (32,768 kbit/sec) and the audio in AAC.

The final product available for instant download is a high quality
13m44s 1.77 GB (1,903,726,592 bytes) .MP4

then I compressed again to a still very watchable 1GB (10,000 kbit/sec) for vimeo.

The final magnification of the mandelbrot fractal is 6.066e+228 (2^760)

want some perspective?

here is a little chart that shows you how large the image of the fractal would be – after the given magnification.

1E6 Vancouver Island
1E9 Jupiter’s radius
1E12 Earth’s orbit
1E18 distance to Alpha Centauri
1E21 Milky Way galaxy
1E30 large doesn’t cover it!
1E42 size of proton to the universe

1E228 so big it hurts…but we did it!

For the record, 1 to 6e228 is like expanding a proton to 70000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000 0000000000000000000000000000000000000 times the size of the visible universe. (i.e. mindrape)
(Proton has 1 femtometer diameter, universe has 93 billion light year diameter)

I remapped the video from this and remixed another shorter audio track to create A 10 minute version for youtube.

youtube version (10m.00s)

the audio really is something special on this.
A decent stereo/ headphones are seriously recommended
for this deep tech house sound.

a two track mix by yours truly – teamfresh.

track one is tonu su tonu
by ivan masa (pablo rez remix)
Pablo Rez surprised us with this strong tech house remix. A track you almost can drop any where, any time”

track two is soul survivor
by solar brothers ft sherry dyanne (moog mix)
“This version will fit you well, if you’re into the current tech-house sound that is. Expect thick and thumpy synths and basslines. Appropriate for later progress in the evening as well as taking it down a notch, whilst sustaining the energy level. You also want to play this, to make people start bouncing if they’re reluctant somehow”

If you were actually traveling into the fractal, you would be moving faster than the speed of light.
