Not sure I have the terminology right but is there any software out there that will render Mandelbrot (and others) as a 3D landscape like on the front cover of the book, Science of Fractal Images by H O Peitgen et al? I'm not looking for a fractal landscape generator but something that will render Mandelbrot and other simple(!) formulas in a 3D perspective way

Thanks,
Souphead

You mean height fields ?

these are from the Fragmentarium examples
Fragmentarium is not a toy, it is a very versatile tool that can be used to make toys ;)

Here's something similar in Ultra Fractal, using the 3D mapping in standard.uxf:

Movie Maker 3D by Yann Le Bihan

This can take the raw iteration data from Kalles Fraktaler 2 and apply a 3D height-field effect for animation.

Kalles Fraktaler 2 + can render Mandelbrot, Burning Ship, and lots more, and is available here:

You can probably find some example videos here:
