This is the hi-Quality divX version of the tUM*o3 opening video.
Hope you enjoy it the same as the tUM-visitors did live at the big screen! ;-)

Please allow the download link to become active first in a few as I'm uploading those 83 MB right at this moment...

Bye,
Weasel

...who said an opening might not have a 'part 2' as well !?! ;-)

And cause of today's *New Year's Eve* I've got a little present for you here as well...

As the official hiQ version still might be a bit too big with ~80 MB for some people here to download...I made another encoding of it with a smaller kbps-rate but still preserving most of the quality for your pleasure of course! ;-)

So...for everybody who wants:
You're welcome to download a ~30 MB smaller version of the official tUM*o3 - tHE oPENING! then, too!

Have fun and of course a HAPPY NEW YEAR to everybody!
See ya' all in 2004 !!

Bye,
Weasel

A nice opening for our party, thanks a lot to Weasel for the effort you've put into the product.

As usual a very cool production from Captv!

If there would be more sceners whit that effort, the compos would be floodet with more cool entrys instead of more and more digitaly remastered stuff...

Keep on great work Weasel... And keep on Sleeping at Party... Muahahahaha ;-D UkNoW?

Very nice prod, although (imo) it lacked the pace of the predecessor. All the rest is absolutely great, though, and it's always a blast for a c64 fan to see 'Reyn Ouwehand' in there somewhere. The '2nd part' was very funny, especially the... nahh, I won't spoil the surprise. See for yourself... Tuumbs Opp!

Always cool to see video montages of demo stuff. This one is particularly well synced to the music and the few sound effects it uses. Also nice, subtle use of 3D modeling that provides a nice asymetrical background. The second part is indeed funny, and probably brought the house down at the party place.

Ideally I would like to see a bit more variety in the "explosion" transitions used for the screens, but I guess when you find something that works, stick with it. :-) Overall, thumbs up.

even though i liked the last years version better, thumbs up for the effort and for supporting the tum.
rulez added on the 2004-01-07 12:21:38 by dalezr dalezr
yeah i thought last years was better too. And it's definately less fun if you're not watching it at the party :(

But still a cool production, some nice bits, and even a bit of a wild demo thrown in (or was the chessboard tower thing from somewhere else?)

Great work. Thanks again for supplying us with it Weasel :)

Thanks for the nice comments so far from all of you.
But what made me thinking about a little was those few scener comments stating that they liked last year's tUM opening better than this year's version though.

So this made me even kinda more interested and curious now to get to know some of the reasons resulting in such statements then! ;-)

Therefore I would _highly_ appreciate some more comments and explanations for that one here to let me know a little more as I surley would like to 'excercise' and practice my skills more and more for various future releases then, too of course! :-)

Thanks in advance, pals... :-)

weasel, the farbrausch-bar for example. i got the joke and i found it funny, but after tons of fr-bars appeared it kinda disrupted the whole thing. then, the flares (dunno if they were in last year as well?) and that awful ';-)' smiley .. it felt as if you were taking a piss on the opener of the last year, but in a negative way.
still, thumbs up for keeping the headbanging guy. ask the poles how much my neck cracked when i started sync-banging. =)

Dalezy:
Thanks for your words...
Oehm...just some explanations from my side for clearing some things up a little more... ;-)

the fR-bar:
This was surely meant as little satiric joke for all those various pre-calc bars around these days...taking longer and longer sometimes for calculating all the data seen in today's prods. Some groups also might exaggerate all this a little too much as well already! ;-)) That was the intentention of this little 'addon-part'...

the smiley:
Well, I wanted to use a completely different graphic at this point but wasn't able to find a suitable one in time...So it ended up in using just chars-set for that one...
I wasn't satisfied with that myself though...but couldn't change it anymore as time was way too short in the end to finish all that.
In general the 'smiley' was alos just a little joke about the short 'logo-advertising' I placed there in those 'spare-seconds'... ;-)
So why did you feel about that one as if I 'were taking a piss on the opener of last year in a negative way'...!???

The flares:
Those were added just because of the general emptyness of the 3d background scene at all.
I just thought about anything how to fill it a bit more with 'color' to not let it look too 'dark' and sad' as of just the mainly 'black & white' rendering-scene I got from diver / Salva mea and my starfield/universe look...
That's why those flares came with some necessary _color_ in those scenes to add way more 'friendlyness' to the whole thing then! :-)
I mean...it was/is meant to be a PARTY-OPENING and not a funeral video... ;-))

Haven't you seen last year's tUM opening before you've watched this one?
Just got this impression here when you talked about the headbanger starting-part...
(as that one was also jsut meant as kinda 'referrence' to last year's sequence as little 'reminder' though... ;-)

More comments from anyone always welcome and very appreciated! :-)
Thanks.

Bye,
Weasel

well, as i said, i liked the part from last year (and i think you'll remember me from last years tum as well =) - so i asure you that i've seen it. =)

because you put in the elements from last year (demo-screens / kungfu-galore etc), and they were kinda subtitled with the stuff i mentioned above. that felt more like you didn't really like what you did last year because you were by putting it down yourself =) (imho though - since it's just not my preferred stuff)
added on the 2004-01-31 18:14:35 by dalezr dalezr
Oehhh.... KungFu-Galore...!???
What did you mean by this now? ;-)
Just a little bit confused now.

Oehm...if you are talking about the first 30secs. of the opening...well, this was - as written in my last post already - just meant to be a little irony to start of with the same scenes from last year's clip then.
I thought that should come clear then at latest at the end of those 30secs where the picture begins to jitter and should look like it was ripped out of the projector in a similar way then....of course to insert the _actual_ opening video for the current year then afterall! ;-)

Anyways...thanks for your opinion of course!

I'd really appreciate even some more of that kind as there hasn't been just 'one' pointing out similar and different point of views though! :-)

Bye,
Weasel

It's ok... I liked the TuM2002 opening a lot better. I was very pleased when I saw it was kind of a remix, since the 2002 music is excellent, but something about it fell flat. In my opinion CAPTV should have gone for something more hard-hitting, like the original... and I don't think they should have had more than 5 seconds of the original either, just a taste is enough... oh yeah and that fr-thing at the end was painful... I have seen amazing things from CAP (viz. Demos of a New Decade) and I think they will do better prods in the future.
