We've all heard the expression "Art is in the eye of the beholder". This usually comes to mind when you're in the middle of some boring art museum tour and calculating how many hot dogs you could have bought with the admission price you just paid.

If this describes you, I'm here to tell you about something that isn't nearly so hard to appreciate. I'm talking about fractal art.

In technical terms, fractal art is derived from visual interpretations of repeating, self-similar, geometric, mathematical algorithms.

In layman's terms... well, just take a second to look at the pictures below.

Pretty spectacular, no? Get this -- you can draw it yourself!

Ultra Fractal is the digital brush and canvas that facilitates fractal art creation. You'll be blown away at how easy it is to make beautiful patterns and images! Built-in tutorials guide you as you learn to create your own fractals, change colors, add layers, and even use masks. You'll never leave the house ever again.

With Ultra Fractal, you can start with the basics, but the possibilities are limitless. Ultra Fractal lets you explore thousands of fractal types from an online database of formulae, then lets you tweak parameters to create your own unique combinations. Eventually, you can move from student to master and start writing and submitting your own fractal formulae to the online database!

Ultra Fractal gives you the power to become an artist in true 21st century fashion!

Here are just a few examples of what users have done with Ultra Fractal. Check out the showcase galleries for many, many more!

Stephen Brown Been after getting this for quite some time. A friend allowed me to use an earlier version three or four years ago (he said he bought it on a whim, but never used it), but I never felt right about using it at the time. I'd have purchased a copy back then because I thought it was a fabulous program, but having been made unemployable several years ago due to an idiot driver who broke my back and left me with head injuries I've never been able to justify spending the full price on it.

Now I can own a registered copy. Purchased it forthwith, :) Looking forwards to playing around with it.

Louis H I forgot how much I really enjoy working with this program.

@ Frederik Slijkerman...

Is the Complete Online Formula database up to date? (I have the Extended Version and never got around to installing it on my current system. Registration went fine without a hitch.)

I downloaded the file but some files are showing a date from 2008.

Do I need to download the monthly and weekly files as well? Or from what date do I need to download the most current individual files as noted in the "Recent changes" section?

Thanks!

MojoMan Hi Frederik... I was not looking for a different edition. I just bought UE Express Edition in February and wondered if there is a break in the upgrade price to this edition. Thanks.

ForumGuru I purchased this yesterday and the key I was sent will not work. I sent an email to support last night and I am waiting for a reply with a good key or a fix to my issue. I hope the author and/or the author's staff get this working for me soon.

Constantin Florea @ForumGuru, I've just sent an email to the vendor regarding the issue you mention. This promotion is running with Cleverbridge as the e-Commerce which means only the vendor can send you the correct registration key.

Constantin Florea @ForumGuru, I am sorry for the delay. Unfortunately all we (BitsDuJour) can do is to contact the vendor. I just did this again by email and I also sent them a Facebook message. I will keep a close eye on this until the vendor responds.

Apparently support from the developer is a bit lacking for this old program. I still have not heard a thing from him... Not a happy camper at this point.

Louis H @ForumGuru...

Did your key look like something like this

-- COPY LICENSE KEY FROM HERE --
Product: Name of Product;
Licensee: "your name";
series of numbers and letters for three lines
xxxxxxxx777777xxxxxxx777777xxxxxxx77777
xxxxx77777777xxxxxxx77777777xxxxx7777xx
-- COPY UNTIL HERE --

(I have, of course altered what ws there in my license)

I copied and pasted from the P in "Product" to the last number/letter in line three. (From my original receipt from 2011) and it worked. You may not be like me, but the first time I tried it, back in 2011, I somehow had added an extra space.

You may have already tried everything, but I thought it would be worth a shot, seeing as how the vendor is not responding.

Frederik Slijkerman Hi Don,

Apologies for the delay in replying. I've emailed you back with help on getting your license key to work.

Best regards,

Frederik Slijkerman Louis, the formula database is always up to date. You can either update from within the program, or manually download formulas here:
http://formulas.ultrafractal.com/

Just use the "Full" option. The other options are provided for when you download formulas every week, or every month, to reduce the download time.

Best regards,
Frederik Slijkerman

ForumGuru All is good now and it was my mistake...

I have made hundreds of software installs and I guess my brain was overlooking the fact that we needed to enter the product and licensee information as well. It's the first time I have seen that, and even though I looked at the email several times, for some reason I was just entering the key string.

My bad! Thanks Louis and Frederik!

Sorry for any trouble and the extra posts and I am a happy camper now.

Cheers to all.
