Chaotica 2 Beta Releases

We now have some beta versions of Chaotica 2 to test!

Chaotica 2 is the next major version of Chaotica, and is currently in development.

Major new features include faster CPU rendering, multi-GPU rendering, and an improved animation editor.

You can help by testing out the new beta versions, which are available to download on the forum here:

Community resources for advanced fractaling techniques

It is a pleasure to see the members of the evergrowing Chaotica community learn from each other, be it at the Forum, Facebook Group, or recently the Discord fractal chat, where everyone's welcome to join.
Experienced users often like to share their techniques with others by either sharing the parameters of the fractal, or creating a tutorial.

Dev update, forum back online

Sorry for the radio silence, an update is certainly overdue!

Chaotica is still being developed, we had to put some time into Indigo Renderer 4, but the long-awaited Indigo 4 Beta has been released and Chaotica development is back in full swing. Indigo and Chaotica share a lot of code, and the upcoming GPU support for Chaotica uses technology originally developed for Indigo, so there's a lot of shared benefit.

Chaotica 1.5.5 now available

After a long holiday pause (belated happy new year everyone!) and period of focusing on Indigo Renderer, it's finally time to officially release Chaotica version 1.5.5. It has been available on the Mac App Store for some time already, where usually the version on our website is a little ahead.

The changes in this version are relatively minor but still quite important (e.g. confirmation dialog before exiting), and the improved animation playback performance is hopefully useful for everyone.

Video gallery is online

Just a quick note in case you missed the mention on our Facebook page, we have a little video gallery page at

If you've made a Chaotica animation and it's available online on Vimeo or YouTube, let us know and we'll link it! Especially good would be if you also have a high quality MP4 file to download (which we can host on a fast server).
