If you are not already familiar with Ultra Fractal,
you should work through the Quick
Start, Basic Skills, and
Working with layers tutorials first.
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.
||Click New on the File menu, and then click Fractal.
In the Select Fractal Formula browser, select Phoenix (Julia)
in Standard.ufm and click Open.
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
- Select the text below, then press Ctrl+C (Windows) or Cmd+C (Mac) to copy it to the Clipboard.
- 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.
|| Go to the Outside tab, and click the Browse button to choose
another coloring algorithm. Select Orbit Traps in Standard.ucl
and click Open.
- 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:
