IFS Designer animates!
The IFS Designer finally does what I intended from the very beginning. It creates animated IFS fractals YAY! It's not polished but the basic functionality of creation, animation and exporting is there. I've also consolidated it so that the matrix library and the required ltk-goodie are in the 0.1.0 archive. You still have to copy the .asd files to the right place because I have no idea how to work adsf-install. I expect that'll change soon if Peter Seibel and his gardening team has anything to do with it.
The animation functionality it pretty simple: you set the keyframes and the program will generate a smooth set of tween frames. The animation you see above is a result of 6 keyframes. I've added a short animation creation to the tutorial to the README.
I'd love to get some feedback from anyone who installs this even if you hate it, tell me.
And now I'm going to bed, good night.
