Highlighting Ultra FractalFractal Art the Ultra Way!Highlighting Ultra Fractal by XtremeFractals
This is Fractal Week and so I would like to bring a little highlight to my own favourite program, Ultra Fractal.
There was a time when this program was one of the most enjoyed fractal programs next to Apophysis, which was of course, free. UF has always come at a price, allbeit a relatively low one for a program as comprehensive as this. These days, people are flocking to the newer programs and I feel that UF is perhaps struggling to keep up with the times, although it does work perfectly well on Windows 8.1 as well as on Mac systems, last updated in October 2014. It has three versions, Express Edition comprising single layer for new users, Creative Edition incorporating layers, layer groups, masks and transformations, and Extended Version which includes animation and network calculations. It can be bought here http://www.ultrafractal.com/features.html

some advices on dc_image pluginsome of you might think hexx Wan Thai Food piethein has images in his apo how could this be....some advices on dc_image plugin by piethein21
(talking about these ).
so as you can see i might quiet a few already ^^.
its made with a new plugin from xyrus02 which allows you to load bitmap pictures into your fractal.
where to get it? at this point it's available in the shack http://chat.deviantart.com/chat/aposhack
now how to use it properly?
well first get it working at all. I will give you some tips how i structure my directory's.
what the dc_image plugin does is look in the 7x.15Images folder (you should make a new folder yourself) and those Images are indexed.
index can be changed in the variables tab to get the image you want. NOTE: if you just add bmp's at random in this Images folder the index of the pictures. if you load params from the past using dc_images it will point to another picture then intended...
now at start you might not have that
