Frax is an art program that puts the “equations of nature” in the palm of your hand. Frax is powered by fractal geometry, the same principle that creates patterns of self-similarity in our natural world. From spiral galaxies to hurricanes, from tree limbs to branching blood vessels, the universe is filled with endless variation and staggering beauty. Frax visualizes this natural geometric code, so you can explore vast animating digital landscapes and make a masterpiece on your touchscreen.
Zoom deep into your creations. Use multi-touch gestures to fly through and explore intricate shapes and patterns. Tilt-to-steer through animating digital worlds, as you challenge yourself to chart a course for a long and beautiful flight –all at a depth range of a trillion-to-one.
Unleash your inner artist with complex color gradients to smoothly tint and shade your fractal shapes, two light sources for glossy reflections, and novel textures. The combinations are endless: supersmooth or wildly chaotic, metallic sheen or pearly white, subtle shades, stark monochrome or screaming supergloss. Or upgrade to Pro to access almost 100 parameters and controls!
Then share your creations with your friends via Facebook, Twitter and text. Or invite other users to step into your animating world by sharing a live preset link. You can render high-quality images to your photo library or create ultra-high quality 200 Megapixel renders with an IAP. And for the first time, you can now record VIDEO of your Frax animations directly within the app! (Pro IAP required.) Our users have put their designs on canvas, posters, scarves, T-shirts and textiles. The creative possibilities are endless!
What will Frax inspire in you?
We hope you enjoy Frax!

Mesmerizingly beautiful. You owe it to yourself to give it a whirl.
Frax: An Extension of Abstract Expression
Written by 2D/3D Animator & Director Connor Dunham
Director of the PROJECT VANILLA Trilogy
Frax is a necessary visual abstract tool to create and express mathematical fractal animations, but it’s much more than that. Frax is in a unique place on the App Store. Just like Mextures, Frax is an extension of the ability to create art, albeit: purposely unrealistic, mythical worlds. Frax is different, the app empowers in ease of use, empowering in ability to transfix, and the ability to express a wide-variety of thought through being able to fully customize color, shape, form, mood, saturation, details, spectrum, texture & contours.
I use Frax everyday. To both make how and what I feel, and to use the app to design and create worlds for the 2nd film in my planned trilogy of 2D Fractal Animation, titled PROJECT VANILLA.
Frax is essentially, an extension of abstract color expression, available on the App Store.
I have a dream…
I love Frax about as much as a human can love a block of code as a humble user. Thrilling, beautiful, and engrossing, it has but one peer, to which those feelings apply as well, AudioKit Synth One. Both are essential iOS experiences at the top of creative software. Buy Frax. It’s worth far more than what is asked. Synth One is free.
My dream? That somehow the two get tied into one output. Let Synth One leverage the variables of Frax, or the other way around. I can dream, can’t I?
Thanks for all your amazing work!
