Mandelbulber3D has a cool feature called iteration fog.
It's a volumetric where the density of the fox and scattering is related to the iteration of the fractal and it wraps the fractal.
I wonder how could this be implemented in GLSL for Fragmentarium. Any thoughts?

There is simple 'glow' effect in Fragmentarium where the glow is based on the number of ray step iterations taken (so something closer to the fractal use more iterations). I imagine this ray step iteration count is also used by M3D for fog density (though minimum DE distance would make more sense?)

However, it is not a participating media, and will not be light by any light sources, so it is quite boring.

For volumetric fog, take a look at this thread:
