We propose a method for direct control of position, rotation, and scaling of fractal patterns generated on an optical fractal synthesizer. In this method we introduce an iterated-function-system mother function to produce control parameters for arbitrary fractal patterns. We implemented the method experimentally and verified the effectiveness of the method.
