A fast method to generate fractal imagery is presented. Iterated function systems (IFS) are based on repeatedly copying transformed images. We show that this can be directly translated into standard graphics operations: Each image is generated by texture mapping and blending copies of the previous image. Animations of dynamic IFS codes are generated at 50 frames/s on a notebook PC, using commodity graphics hardware. Various extensions and variations are presented.
