Jesse, you asked about the formula. Here it is :
Ah, thank you! I already experimented with more sine/cosine options in the 3d case, but nothing very special found yet. Maybe i can make an extern formula out of it, but it would be somewhat slow with the 4 point DE... PS: looking at the code, i assume that RRdz and Rdz is the same variable?

Congratulations on your discovery, although temper it with the knowledge that like most great discoveries, it's been around for a while: The 4d, and higher (I made up to 10d way back in January), have been around since close to the rediscovery of the bulb (someone else was working on them around March of this year, and in fact I think the topic was mentioned in the original thread, although I wasn't aware of any implementation before mine). Here is a 6 dimensional bulb video (crappy, didn't figure out coloring methods yet) I posted on youtube January 24th of this year:

No problem, for my test implementation i did not need it anyway. It seems to work so far, a quick test with a quaternion as hybrid... Now i will try a boost instead of a rotation for 4d... (in the next time)

Just wanted to say that my experiment with a hyperbolic version for theta1 gave no good result. But i am not an analytic mathematician, so multiplying the Arcsinh(w/R) with the power and using the Cosh and Sinh out of it may make no sense at all? The sense should be that our universe is basically a minkowski 4d spacetime, so i am trying to use the fourth dimension in a similiar way. By mistake i found a way to inflate bulbs, so if someone's bulb needs some air or water just call me:

Yep, i forgot to scale theta1 so the bulb turned into a spehere with higher cw values. You are the 6, 7? dimension man, so no problem for you. I just wish your images would not look like ultrasonic scans, so as they were prebirth scans An deflating?

I like the way they look... the contrast really makes them pop (to my mind's eye). I made a similar "mistake" back when I first tried 4d bulbs... the same one. You can do some neat stuff with it if you do it right however (the nonrotated magnitude component):

Ok, the viewing habits may vary, for me it is sometimes hard to distinguish between the 3d structures and what is coloring. I would like to see SSAO from chaospro, have you tried it? Should be fast, independently of the formula. But thanks for the good work anyway! I made a similar "mistake" back when I first tried 4d bulbs... the same one.

That is neat, yep. The hope is still to find a bulb with speheres on spheres... something different from the bulbs so far.

Ok, the viewing habits may vary, for me it is sometimes hard to distinguish between the 3d structures and what is coloring. I know it's a tangent, don't want to hijack the thread, but the structure of the coloring is really part of the magic of fractals. You've got to consider that a 2d mandelbrot, just looking at the edge, without coloring all the different iterations, it's pretty boring. With the 3+ dimensional formulas, you can't do anything but "look at the edge" (well, you can slice it, but that's not what we're aiming for), and one way to see the interesting fractal structure is to color it with various iteration values. I would like to see SSAO from chaospro, have you tried it? Should be fast, independently of the formula.
The AO only mode looks a lot like the sample on the SSAO wiki page, so... yes. Can mess around with that a bit, however I still think the real structure of fractals lies in the coloring schemes, and just like a 2d painting can be made to be 3d by perspective effects, 3d fractals can be made to pop out with coloring (instead of simply shading). I think IQ (Inigo?) mentioned orbital coloring as a method of popping out the fractals a long time ago... anyways.. In the following 5d (not 4d) fractal, you can see that the method of coloring highlights mathematical "valleys" (shadows), pops out the 3d details, and creates a pretty texture to further enhance the look of the fractal. The hope is still to find a bulb with speheres on spheres... something different from the bulbs so far.
Yeah, but I don't think that will be "the" 3d Mandelbrot, as the apparent 3d extension of the 2d complex formula is the 3d complex formula I posted in the "3d Mandelbrot Formulas" stickythread. It just makes sense that the 3d version has greater distortion due to the additional imaginary component... thus the distorted fractal dubbed the xmas tree fractal (by )...
