This 3600 x 2400 image was downscaled from 9000 x 6000. This resolution should approach the maximum dpi of common photo printers at a 20 x 30″ print size. In the future I may have to figure out how to segment these large format renders, as currently they limit the design of the fractal flame. It’s a balancing act between complexity, size, time, and computer memory. This flame is fairly simple and took about eight hours to render, but to achieve the same quality on a more complex piece could easily require over a hundred hours of render time.
