Ultra Fractal is a great way to create your own fractal art. It is very easy to use and yet more capable than any other fractal program. With Ultra Fractal, you can choose from thousands of fractal types and coloring algorithms, zoom in as far as you want, use gradients to add color, and apply multiple layers to combine different fractals in one image.
ultra-fast deep zooming
You can zoom to virtually unlimited depths with Ultra Fractal. Deep zooming is fully integrated and works with all fractal types and coloring options, even those you have written yourself. And thanks to the new perturbation calculations algorithm in Ultra Fractal 6, images that previously took hours or days to generate are now completed within minutes!
Tweak parameters with the versatile Explore feature
Choosing parameter values is a breeze with the new Explore feature. Experiment with new parameter values by moving the mouse cursor over a coordinate grid in the Explore window, while the Fractal Mode tool window shows a real-time preview of the result.
Color your fractals and add transparency effects
Coloring your fractals is easy with Ultra Fractal’s gradient editor. Drag the gradient curves up and down to create smooth ranges of colors, or use the Randomize options to quickly try various color combinations. You can also use the gradient editor to add transparency effects.
Import PNG, JPEG or BMP images in your fractals with the built-in image import feature. Simply select a coloring algorithm that contains an image parameter, and you can select any image on your computer to use.
Create fractal animations easily with the powerful animation features
Open and organize your fractal files
Organize all your fractal-related files with the integrated Explorer-like file browsers. Quickly scan formula files and parameters with the new thumbnail view and the powerful search tools.
