One of the major features in Ultra Fractal is the ability to turn any fractal into an animation and make a movie out of it. In this tutorial, we will start with a simple fractal and gradually turn it into a more and more complex animation using the various new animation features. Finally, we will render it as a movie. First, close any open fractal windows to begin with an empty workspace.
This opens a new fractal window with the Phoenix (Julia) fractal. Let's change the Julia Seed parameter of this fractal formula to make it a little more interesting. - Select the text below, then press Ctrl+C (Windows) or Cmd+C (Mac) to copy it to the Clipboard.
-0.41/-0.53 - Right-click on the
**Julia Seed**parameter on the Formula tab and click**Paste Complex Value**. This should fill the input boxes with -0.41 and -0.53, respectively.
- Change the
**Trap Shape**parameter to**pinch**, and set**Trap Mode**to**inverted sum squared**(at the end of the list).
The fractal should now look like this: |
