I've been a longtime user of Photoshop and other graphics applications, but not spent much time creating fractals. I've looked at hundreds of fractals and there is one style in particular I really like and would be happy to create in a variety of ways. I think it's referred to as chaotic bundle or chaotic thread, but I may be mistaken regarding this. What I need help with is the steps in UF to create this look. I've included a graphic of a fractal in this general style. Any help would be appreciated as my research has not been productive.

That looks like a flame fractal. UF isn't the best program for making those; try JWildfire, Apophysis, Apophysis 7X, Chaotica, or Fractorium.

Thank you for reply. I've seen the term flame fractal numerous times but not made the connection with the style of fractal I was drawn to. A quick look at examples for frame fractals confirmed your assessment. I was associating "flame" with the literal meaning rather than the descriptive one. I have most of the apps you suggested, so now I know what I'll be spending time on. smile

I will likely find other ways to use UF at some point. Your response to my query really helped!

In addition, you can import Apophysis flame fractals into Ultra Fractal so you can combine them with other fractal layers.

I assume there's instructions for importing in UF in PDF manual? I'm used to importing/exporting in Photoshop with a wide range of file types, so I'm guessing this is true for fractal applications? Thanks for advice.

The manual doesn't cover Apophysis, but importing is simple. In Apophysis 2.09, click Edit > Copy As UPR to copy the current flame fractal to the clipboard in UF format.

Next, in UF, click Edit > Paste in any open fractal window.

You need to have updated formulas in UF (File > Update Public Formulas). Also, in Apophysis, use Options > Options > UPR and change Identifier in the Coloring algorithm box to "apophysis-205" and File to "apophysis.ucl". This selects a newer coloring algorithm in UF. You will get some warnings, but after that, the image appears correct.
