Please feel free to use this animation, but host it on your own server and give me proper credit.

Filmer is a front-end program for Fractint that generates amazing fractal animation. Fractint is a program for calculating still fractal images (you need Fractint installed to use Filmer). Filmer uses Fractint parameter (.par) files to specify the coordinates and other parameters of a fractal. It then calculates the intermediate frames and calls Fractint to make a continuous animation. Filmer also has many options for pallete rotation and generation.

New Version!
Well, I finally decided to get off my butt and write a new version of Filmer. Almost all my planed improvements went into this one.
