Ultra Fractal is a full-featured and very fast fractal animation making software developed by Frederik Slijkerman in 1999. It contains thousands of fractal types and coloring algorithms, supports zoom in/out function, uses gradients to add color, and is able to apply multiple layers to combine different fractals in one image – this layering method previously was only found in image editing software.

Ultra Fractal comes with some striking features: it allows to easily customize a new fractal formula to draw the new fractals, supports the deep browse of Mandelbrot set, and no complex programming or mathematics knowledge is required. Besides, Ultra Fractal uses multiple acceleration algorithms in order to quickly draw fractal patterns (therefore its rendering speed is much faster than many similar software). If you’re looking for a great fractal animation producing software, then I first recommend Ultra Fractal to you all.

As an advanced yet very easy-to-use fractal generating and rendering program, whether you’re a graphic designer, a professional fractal artist or novice, it always enables you to easily give full play to your creativity to make your own fractal art works (such as beautiful fractal pictures, textures and backgrounds). As a result, we can see much more fractal art works on the Internet now than the Mandelbrot set that we may have seen before.
