Animating layers

Animating the opacity and blending of layers is the way in Ultra Fractal to animate blends between different fractals, gradients, color combinations, and so on.


To animate layer blending, first set Animate mode to on and move the time slider to the frame where you want to create new animation keys, as described in Creating animations.

Now simply drag the opacity slider to a new value, or set a new merge mode.

As with any parameter, a blue dot next to the Merge Mode input box or the opacity slider means that it is animated. It turns into a yellow marker if there is an animation key at the current frame. In this case, editing the parameter while Animate mode is on will change the value of the key at the current frame instead of inserting a new key.
