### Implicit plot with complex function

I have a complexe function $f:\mathbb{C}\to\mathbb{C}$, and want to draw the locus where $f$ is in the interval $[0,1]$. I made the following (where $f$ is my complex function):

x=var('x');assume(x,'real');
y=var('y');assume(y,'real');
F=f.subs(z==x+I*y)
P=lambda x,y:F.subs(x=x,y=y).real();
Q=lambda x,y:F.subs(x=x,y=y).imag();
region_plot([P(x,y)<=1,P(x,y)>=0,Q(x,y)==0], (x,0,5), (y,-1,1))


That works well for small functions (low degree) but for big functions it's too long. I think there should be something better. I've seen for example the function complex_plot works well even for big functions and seems to do something more complex.

Does somebody has any idea?

That works well for small functions (low degree) but for big functions it's too long. For example with $$f(z)=-\frac{{\left(z^{4} - 6 z^{3} + 12 z^{2} - 8 \, z\right)} {\left(z - 1\right)}^{3} {\left(z - 3\right)}}{{\left(2z - 3\right)} {\left(z - 2\right)}^{3} z}$$ there is no problem (a few second), but with $$f(z)=-\frac{{\left(z^{8} - 16 z^{7} + 108 z^{6} - 400 z^{5} + 886 z^{4} - 1200 z^{3} + 972 z^{2} - 432 z + 81\right)} {\left(z - 2\right)}^{6} {\left(z - 4\right)} z}{{\left(6 z^{4} - 48 z^{3} + 140 z^{2} - 176 z + 81\right)} {\left(z - 1\right)}^{4} {\left(z - 3\right)}^{4}}$$ that's too long. I think there should be something better. I've seen for example the function complex_plot works well even for big functions and seems to do something more complex.

Any idea?
