Fractal formulas

The fractal formula creates the basic shape and form of a fractal. Ultra Fractal comes with a number of standard formulas that you can use. You can also download additional formulas from the Internet and even write your own formulas.

Fractal formulas are managed in the Formula tab of the Layer Properties tool window.
