South California Purples

The first few times I came across fractal flames on other sites, the images were this same sort of free flowing, highly organized tangle of intermingled lines and color. The title comes from a song of the same name by the band Chicago, on their first release, Chicago Transit Authority.

    All this app does for me is quit every time I try to render.

    Sorry to hear that Tom. Are you saving the flame as a .flam3 file before you start rendering? If not, check out the front end of this tutorial, hopefully that will help end your crashes.
