Ultra Fractal 5.01

I have been a fan of Ultra Fractal since version 2 and today I upgraded to version 5. It cost me AU$105 to upgrade from version 4.01. There are a few nice new features.

I may have missed the ability to network version 4 but with version 5 you can run a server program on one or more other computers and share the load of rendering images across a number of processors.

After about 1/2 an hour of mucking around I have got this to work and it’s going to be interesting. I have access to a lab of computers at work and I may be able to run the server program on 20+ machines at once which would make for some very fast render times :-)

Time will tell if this will work or even be worth the effort but I am looking forward to trying it at least once.
