They say ChaosPro can take UF Formulas, but I never had much luck with anything but only the most basic ones.  Maybe somebody more familiar with UltraFractal can help here.

I would have many uses for this!  I have image editors in which I am often making octagonal tiles - hoping to one day find software that can tile them to make textures for my 3D Work...

OK now you have totally confused me...because when I'm choosing a fractal in  ChasoPro I have had the BEST luck choosing from their selection of UF.  BTW I have only been doing this a few months.  Dazed & coonfused in the most determined way!

I never had a problem using the UF Formulas that come with ChaosPro, it's importing the custom ones that are hit-and-miss with me.

They either work right away or freeze the program  alien

just try the formula out with the free version of uf5, i just love ultrafractal, because it was the program i am admiring since end of 90!!!
in fact this program is somehow the founder of nowadays formula systems, most of the other programs, as chaoscope support import for it ...
but the problem is the huge external formulas database, which has to be actualized in other programs as well ...
and it is getting bigger and bigger cheesy

I actually bought UltraFratcal 5 Animation Edition for a recent commercial project!

But I still just don't get along with the interface, despite the similarities to ChaosPro.

Something about it just doesn't "click" with my brain.  Working with UF is, for me, well...  Work!

I tend to just Play more with other programs, and enjoy the results - but I really struggle with UltraFractal just to get basic stuff done. 

I tried reading through the manual, but it didn't help me much.

It's just on the list of programs that I know are capable of Great Things, but which I personally don't care for    undecided

As far as I'm concerned it's not "really" a kaleidoscope unless it's animated.  I read somewhere here that a member Duncan? said that he would like to see animated ones here.  Sorry not could not relocate thread.  But here is another animated collection of kaleids!

Anyone else here have any animated ones?  Would really like to see!

I have created graphics that basically apply the kaleidoscope technique using fractal images, but nothing animated in that way.

But I have seen a few in other groups, just do not remember seeing any here within these Forums.

Actually I'm quite surprised that as far as I've seen I'm the only one here making them.  Great eye candy!

I sure hope so!  That's one of the reasons why I joined. to see how others do the things that interest me.  Maybe a 3D kaleid?
