/*
The 8x8x8 RGB LED Cube

by John Bradnam
based on work by Kevin Darrah

Latest
V12 04/17/2013

Release Notes:
V11
- Fixed bug with BAM timing
- Moved Blank pin setup to ISR so pins are dead until they are written to

V12
bitwise operation to set pins LOW was incorrect
should be PORTx &= ~(1<<pinNumber);

Not a professional LED cube builder, this is how I did it, and this is my cube

  //There are (CUBE_SIZE * CUBE_SIZE * CUBE_SIZE) LEDs in the cube, so when we write to level 2, column 5, row 4, that needs to be translated into a number from 0 to (CUBE_SIZE * CUBE_SIZE * CUBE_SIZE) - 1

  //The first level LEDs are first in the sequence, then 2nd level, then third, and so on

  //For a 4 x 4 x 4 cube the (level * (4 * 4)) is what indexes the level's starting place, so level 0 are LEDs 0 - 15, level 1 are LEDs 16 - 31, and so on

  // 00 01 02 03
  // 04 05 06 07
  // 08 09 10 11
  // 12 13 14 15

  //For a 8 x 8 x 8 cube the (level * (8 * 8)) is what indexes the level's starting place, so level 0 are LEDs 0 - 63, level 1 are LEDs 64 - 127, and so on
  //if you looked down on the cube, and only looked at the bottom level

  //Then, if you incremented the level, the top right of the grid above would start at (CUBE_SIZE * CUBE_SIZE)
  //The reason for doing this, is so you don't have to memorize a number for each LED, allowing you to use level, row, column

  //Now, what about the divide by 8 in there?
  //...well, we have 8 bits per byte, and we have 64 bytes in memory for all 512 bits needed for each LED, so
  //we divide the number we just found by 8, and take the integer of it, so we know which byte, that bit is located
  //confused? that's ok, let's take an example, if we wanted to write to the LED to the last LED in the cube, we would write a 7, 7, 7
  // giving (7*64)+(7*8)=7 = 511, which is right, but now let's divide it by 8, 511/8 = 63.875, and take the int of it so, we get 63,
  //this is the last byte in the array, which is right since this is the last LED

  // Get the LED number 0 - 511
  int wholebyte = (level * LEDS_PER_LEVEL) + (row * CUBE_SIZE) + column;
  // Get the index into the array. Each indexed location holds one byte or 8 bits;
  int whichbyte = int(wholebyte / 8);
  int whichbit = (wholebyte & 7);
  
  //This will all make sense in a sec

  //This is 4 bit color resolution, so each color contains x4 64 byte arrays, explanation below:
  bitWrite(red0[whichbyte], whichbit, bitRead(red, 0));
  bitWrite(red1[whichbyte], whichbit, bitRead(red, 1));
  bitWrite(red2[whichbyte], whichbit, bitRead(red, 2)); 
  bitWrite(red3[whichbyte], whichbit, bitRead(red, 3)); 

  bitWrite(green0[whichbyte], whichbit, bitRead(green, 0));
  bitWrite(green1[whichbyte], whichbit, bitRead(green, 1));
  bitWrite(green2[whichbyte], whichbit, bitRead(green, 2)); 
  bitWrite(green3[whichbyte], whichbit, bitRead(green, 3));

  bitWrite(blue0[whichbyte], whichbit, bitRead(blue, 0));
  bitWrite(blue1[whichbyte], whichbit, bitRead(blue, 1));
  bitWrite(blue2[whichbyte], whichbit, bitRead(blue, 2)); 
  bitWrite(blue3[whichbyte], whichbit, bitRead(blue, 3));

  //Are you now more confused?  You shouldn't be!  It's starting to make sense now.  Notice how each line is a bitWrite, which is,
  //bitWrite(the byte you want to write to, the bit of the byte to write, and the 0 or 1 you want to write)
  //This means that the 'whichbyte' is the byte from 0-63 in which the bit corresponding to the LED from 0-511
  //Is making sense now why we did that? taking a value from 0-511 and converting it to a value from 0-63, since each LED represents a bit in 
  //an array of 64 bytes.
  //Then next line is which bit 'wholebyte-(8*whichbyte)'  
  //This is simply taking the LED's value of 0-511 and subracting it from the BYTE its bit was located in times 8
  //Think about it, byte 63 will contain LEDs from 504 to 511, so if you took 505-(8*63), you get a 1, meaning that,
  //LED number 505 is is located in bit 1 of byte 63 in the array

  //is that it?  No, you still have to do the bitRead of the brightness 0-15 you are trying to write,
  //if you wrote a 15 to RED, all 4 arrays for that LED would have a 1 for that bit, meaning it will be on 100%
  //This is why the four arrays read 0-4 of the value entered in for RED, GREEN, and BLUE
  //hopefully this all makes some sense?
