The Buddhabrot

Rendering the Buddhabrot efficiently poses a bit of a challenge. The main problem is that we cannot directly compute the value of the Buddhabrot at a pixel, but have to sample many random trajectories and hope that they pass through the pixels we care about. This "spray and pray" approach works reasonably well for zoomed out images, but zoom-ins and transformations are very difficult to render in a reasonable time frame, since many trajectories land outside the frame and their computation is wasted.
