Developer: J R Oakley
File type: Data File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .mxad. Files with the file extension .mxad can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .mxad files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .mxad file?

The MXAD file extension is known as the Mandelbrot Explorer All Data File which was developed by J R Oakley. The Mandelbrot Explorer is a program used to visualize Mandelbrot Set and Julia Set fractal images. Specifically, the MXAD files save both the fractal region and the colour scheme and retrieves in all data format. It has the ability to store both the fractal parameters (fractal type, x and y coordinates, magnification and image resolution in a zoomed imagery and the overlaid color scheme. It is saved in an XML format and displays monochrome, grayscale, and color visualizations. MXAD files include the combined data that is stored separately in .mxcs and .mxfr files. They can be exported to .bmp, .jpg, .gif, and .png image formats by selecting the following program option: Click “File”, then” Save Image”. Files in MXAD format can be opened with Mandelbrot Explorer in Microsoft Windows platforms. Aside from MXAD, it also uses MXFR, MXCS, and MXRW formats.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .mxad files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .mxad. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
