How to create animation?

Submitted by erin on 2018-09-14

Some simple instructions on how to create a fractal zoom animation would be really helpful.
When I use the "generate series" option it seems to just output the same image X-number of times.
The "mesh rotation" option under "animation" is greyed out and does not function, although "color scrolling" does work.
I was looking for a program to create animated fractals and this looked ideal, but unfortunately have no idea how to make it work.

Edit: Ah, I see that mesh rotation is for the 3D mode.

You have to first manually zoom to the location where you want your animation to stop before selecting the "Generate Series" option. Then your animation will zoom in from the full fractal to that final location.
