My applet, Benoit

I've decided to dust off this applet (and my Java skills) and see what I can make it do.

I want to add a few things to it:
-Threaded rendering
-A marquee zoomer
-Suess mode
-Set fractal resolution
-A few interface refinements
-(maybe) Render high-res images and let the user save them

If you have no idea what I'm talking about, see this thread.

Here's a shot of the applet, unmodified from the one I turned in for the Intro to Computer Programming class I took in 2001.

Re: My applet, Benoit

Maybe we can have a fractal gallery ... or even a fractal competition!

(I noticed your "it used to work" comment - the same thing has happened to me: code deteriorates if you don't use it. So you may have rescued your applet just in time!)

Lol, I guess. It turns out that I'm pretty much rewriting the thing, anyway.

I just got it to compile for the first time! Yay! And, I have a question about window width. You see, the applet will take up at least 800 pixels of horizontal space, if not more (I need to get the interface displaying correctly before I can finalize this).

Will this fit into MathsIsFun.com? Or do we need to put it in a pop up window, or perhaps (:() reduce the size of the displayed image (it's a 700x500 right now, a nice round number).

Re: My applet, Benoit

I'm making progress. I'd call it an alpha at this point. Here's a shot of suess mode:

Gee, that is really good. Very professional look, too.
