Flame fractals and Out Of Memory errors
Since version 3, Ultra Fractal can calculate flame fractals with the Flame Fractals coloring algorithm in enr.ucl and Apophysis. This opens up new artistic possibilities, but it can also create problems. See the Flame Fractals topic in the Knowledge Base for more information.
Images can be imported directly into Ultra Fractal 5. With earlier versions of Ultra Fractal, you can convert them to specialized coloring algorithms with the Bring It In utility written by Mark Hammond.
Printing the help file
It is difficult to print topics in the Ultra Fractal help file because of bugs in the Microsoft help viewer. Instead, download the PDF manual and print it with Adobe Acrobat Reader.

Pasting parameter sets
With some versions of Outlook, you cannot directly paste parameter sets from emails or web pages into Ultra Fractal. There are various solutions that you can try:
- Select View|Encoding and choose US-ASCII.
- Paste into Notepad, and then copy/paste from Notepad into Ultra Fractal.
- In the Options dialog, click Email Options, and uncheck "Remove extra line breaks in plain text messages".
If this does not help, ask around on the forum.
