JWildfire is the spiritual successor of the award winning image-processing software Wildfire\7PPC for the Amiga. But, this time implemented using a high-level language (Java), with a more sophisticated user interface, and much more cool effects, and flame fractals 🙂

Flame fractals

The currently most complete feature is  the flame fractal module called TINA (“TINA” is a recursive acrononym and does mean “TINA is not Apophysis”).
Backed up by JWildfire’s image-processing-capabilitie, TINA is the most powerful and versatile flame fractal software available, and additionally it runs on nearly any platform.

TINA features an powerful and intuitive editor, a simple-to-use morphing-based animation-editor, motion-blur, freely editable motion-curves for almost any property, a gradient-editor, a module were you can create sound-synchronized flame fractal -movies, and much more.



You can download the latest binaries right here at this site, where the source code is hosted a GitHub.

Key Features of JWildfire:

  • contains the most complete and versatile Flame fractal editor available
  • stunning 3D effects (such as wave3D, water, twirl3d, …)
  • 3D effect superimposition (e. g. wave3D interference)
  • image composition (layers, even for HDR images)
  • image generators (perlin noise, cloud generator, plasma, …)
  • many “common” image processing effects in 2D (such as twirl, erode, convolve, …)
  • simple, powerful and visual appealing graphical user interface
  • Sunflow renderer integration for high quality rendering (experimental)
  • robust and object-oriented software-design, easy to extend
  • runs on any major platform which features a Java runtime (does not mean that you need a Java plugin for your Web browser)
