I stumbled upon an amazing combination of variables: the standard Pixel formula with Gradient for family Outside coloring (sam.ucl) and the Inverse fractal plane mapping. How does such a transformation take place from a bunch of squares formed by the gradient to a beautiful rounded geometric pattern? I am baffled and pleasantly surprised!

bonjour, je voudrai savoir s'il serait possible de m'aider car j'ai voulu ré-ouvrir des projets et lors du démarrage du logiciel j'ai un message qui me dit qu'il manque une formule (JLB QUAD MIROR - jlb -ulb). j'ai essayer de mettre un jour ma liste de formule public et rien nouveau. le problème recommence ... j'a l'impression que c'est après avoir effectué des

Hi, after using only notebooks for over a decade, I am thinking about getting a (Windows) desktop PC. Not being much of a gamer, my primary concern with performance is deep-zooming the Mandelbrot set in UF. Does anybody have a suggestion for this, or even a benchmark computed on their machine?

I've read Frederik suggesting an i7. Is UF specifically tailored to Intel? I never read anything abo

Has anyone tried importing UPR commands from Apophysis into Ultra Fractal? I just get dozens of error messages (see screen shot). There will be something rendered in the fractal window, but it doesn't look much like the original in Apophysis. I've updated the UPR database, but it doesn't help. I've tried exporting from both Apophysis 7X and Apophysis 2.09, with the same result.

I'm running b

I have a photograph that I would like to use in UF if I can change it. It has many areas that are various brightnesses of a fairly neutral gray. Is it possible to make a mask just of these gray areas?

I'm New to this forum and I wan't to thanks all the parameter's sharer. I'm actually from France and devellop all my work with fractal's, in plastic and numeric art.

Do you know how can upgrade the size of iteration (aka Trap Threshold) with the Direct plug-in > Orbit Trap > Image

Hello all,

I'm finally checking out UF6, and the deep zoom is amazingly fast! I've run into a question, though. In a lot of my older fractals, I used Lyapunov coloring layers in deep(ish) zooms. When I load some of those old parameters into UF6, it looks like Lyapunov stops working at the deeper levels of magnification. I used to fix that by manually adjusting the Additional Precision. Can an

Trying to print out one of the fractals I created. What is the recommendation for printing.

I would like to print something like a 30x20 in size.

Can anyone give me some tips on what export settings and to what type of file would work best?

Thanks in advance!

Is there a practical maximum zoom magnification for the Mandelbrot formula with perturbation? UF is not optimized for deep zooms, but I'm curious.

Who's gone deep? The one I'm looking at now is E120 so far, using about 150,000 iterations, and all seems well.

(This question arose because of the video of a zoom to E2011, made using Kalles Fraktaler,

I am a newbie using Ultra Fractal 6.02 (64-bit).

I created a fractal 800 px (w) by 600 px (h) at 600 PPI.

When I render the fractal to disc, these are the specs:

File Format: JPG
Width: 1,600 px
Height: 1,200 px
Res: 600 PPI
Forced Linear Drawing Method: Checked

But when I opened the JPG in Corel PSP, the image was rendered at 72 PPI. Why?

Thank you!

I am a newbie using UF 6.02 (64-bit).

Ignoring Transformations, to create a fractal, one selects a Formula out of what looks like endless formulas and tweaks the Formula's parameters. Then, one selects an Outside Coloring Algorithm out of endless algorithms and tweaks the Algorithm's parameters. Then, one selects an Inside Coloring Algorithm out of endless algorithms and tweaks the A

I am a newbie using Ultra Fractal v. 6.02 (64-bit).

At the end of the day, I want to render an image which is 16 inches (W) by 12 inches (H) at 600 PPI --that's 9,600 pixels (W) by 7,200 pixels (H)-- and then export the image as a JPG file, which I will print as a giclee print on a stretched canvas.

When I create the new fractal, what should be the settings in the Fractal Properti

I am a newbie using Ultra Fractal 6.02 (64-bit) and just started going through the Tutorials.

Q# 1. Is the default image size of all fractals 800 (w) by 600 (h) at 300 PPI?

Q # 2. At the end of the day, I want to render JPG images 16 inches (w) by 12 inches (h) at 300 PPI for giclee printing. How does the above size relate to the final rendering?

Thank you!

I've got a series of Julia seed values that I've carefully keyframed, and now I want these keyframes to repeat because the first/last keyframes are the same and it will loop. I'm trying to find an easy way to copy this set of keyframes and paste over and over adding more keyframes... Can someone help? Thanks! I tried doing it in the timeline editor but couldn't get it to work...
