OK, well here are my first attempts to create 3D Glynn fractals using the triplex formulas.

Nice work !

just testing formulas.
glynn set as heightmap is very ungrateful fractal to raytrace...

Is that raytraced using a distance estimator method ? I don't mean that the heights are 2D distance estimates, I mean were the distances to step along the rays distance estimated ?

ehrm, anyone interested in my glynn julia 3d heightmap interpretation made with mutatorkammer ?

no, it's rendered using standard (fixed step) raytracing.
i've seen in lots of posts DE methods are speeding up rendering, but i do not fully understand them.
could you post some links to article/tutorial where distance estimation method is described for mandelbrot/julia sets in complex numbers?
is it a generic method or specific only for iterated mandelbrot-like fractals?

See:

http://www.fractalforums.com/3d-fractal-generation/true-3d-mandlebrot-type-fractal/msg8505/#msg8505

Note that the only difference between the analytical DE for Julias as compared to Mandelbrots (where the constant is simply added to the iterate as in z^2+constant) is that you add 1 to the DE value on each iteration for the Mandelbrots but don't add 1 for the Julias.

And for my "delta DE" i.e. distance estimation using a numerical method (which is the one I adapted for doing heightfields):

http://www.fractalforums.com/mandelbulb-implementation/mandelbulb-ray-tracing-plugin-for-photoshop-aftereffects-and-quartzcomposer/msg10178/#msg10178

For doing heightfields I essentially got the height of the step position on the ray above the fractal surface (as defined by whichever colouring algorithm you use) and the height above the surface at a very small distance further along the ray.

What was the date on which Earl Glynn first described his Julia set? I ask the question because I had not heard of the Glynn Julia set by that name until I saw this thread. I created a fractal image back around 1998-99 that was used in a couple of art contests (which it won in one of them) and have sold the image for some posters and as a cover for a magazine on neurochemistry. The image was created using the julia fractal

z -> z^1.5 - 0.2

I remember that well, I saw it fairly soon after I discovered Fractint for the first time

I just updated my 3D Glynn renderings in my previous post here:
http://www.fractalforums.com/mandelbrot-and-julia-set/glynn-julia-set/msg8706/#msg8706

I also added some Mathematica code as well as a little C++ code to demonstrate the method.

I always did like all of your older images.  They are "classic" in many ways!!!

Glad to see you recycling them in this Forum.

it seems that Earl Glynn described his set at Eurographics '91 conference, however Clifford Pickover was the first one who used name 'Glynn Function' in one of his books.
Glynn himself uses name 'Fractal Biomorph', see: Glynn Function Study Center.

must admit that Biomorph heightmap rendering by Ramiro Perez (bottom of Glynn's page) later inspired me to 3d fractals and raytracing in general.
i was in high school then (late 90's) and even didn't know how to rise complex to fractional number :nostalgia:

While looking for Glynn fractal patterns using the different variations of the spherical coordinate formulas, I stumbled on an interesting shape while using Garth Thornton's variation. See the images below. The last one is a slice.

So this is for z^1.5-0.2..
