Killer Piece of Work
rulezadded on the 2005-07-25 11:35:42 by Mike 3D Mike 3D
Hmmm ... maybe a little too stylish for me ... ^^
Only become interesting from the greetings part, and the edge detection filter ...

okay... please, MAKE SHORTER DEMOS.
there are very nice visuals, but yeah... for my taste it's too often almost the same. still rulez.

The beginning was so boring that I almost pressed escape.. but I'm glad I ddn't, because it evolved into a killer demo. Ion Traxx meets Variform. Pounding and hypnotic. One of my favourites from 2005 so far..

this was nice.. but why is this stuff so slow sometimes (even on a fx)???!

Music is definitely not my taste, but visuals are great, and they fit the music perfectly well. Rulez.

Nice, really good flow all the way through, good design, and some really nice effects. Credits part was great, so was the edge detection. Keep 'em coming!

about kohai's comment, WHY shorter demos? If you have ideas to show, they must be in your piece of art. Even a 16 sec demo can be boring. This one's not. This demo rulez. It won the Euskal05 demo compo so it doesn't seem to be so long...
rulezadded on the 2005-07-25 18:42:05 by k0mpo k0mpo
Loooooooooooooooooooooong. Better to watch it while dancing, not resting still on a chair.

Nice music and fxs, I liked that jaggy-polyrender.

(the fonts remembered me these one)
rulezadded on the 2005-07-25 19:21:22 by bdk bdk
The problem is not that the demo is too long - the problem is that each effect is shown too long. So it becomes boring (even the slow music supports that) - time to sleep... zzz
added on the 2005-07-25 19:51:43 by RA RA
Really impressive. Really don't know how you get ideas to make so strange effects :-) I like that, this is not a 3ds-max movie player as almost every demo today. Really cool !
rulezadded on the 2005-07-25 19:55:09 by leonard leonard
simply stylish... i like everything about that one, espexially the fresh ideas

excellent stuff! could go on forever if you ask me. only for the music.
rulezadded on the 2005-07-25 21:43:14 by sam sam
Maybe some of the objects/effects were okay to look at, but this thing dragged on and on. I looked at the mp3 file and was surprised the music was only seven and a half minutes long -- it seemed more like an eternity.
sucksadded on the 2005-07-26 02:09:35 by sea_monkey sea_monkey
But, I should also point out that the part featuring the photo of a lake with overlayed spinning 3D object held promise. If only the reeds/grasses/whatever had been edited to have visual priority over the object, thereby "immersing" the computer generated 3D into the real life 2D photo.
rulezadded on the 2005-07-26 13:42:06 by Zest Zest
In my opinion, too long and out of context...
For VJ session in a pub this fits vastly, but actually not the thing to enjoy in the way we used to enjoy demos...
In the other hand I admire and aplause the great effect repertory mastered by shine cool!!! cheers! ...but next time,try to aim your weapon to another plot or idea behind the demo.
rulezadded on the 2005-07-26 15:14:24 by JaK JaK
the sync is accurate but feels random at times. also one could have synced smaller animated structures insted of full-screen objects/structures from time to time. it would have made the demo more polished but also less massive...
respect and keep it up.

rulezadded on the 2005-07-26 16:17:06 by zeebr zeebr
i'm not sure i'm watching this demo as it should be (P42.8 GF FX5700 here)... it's nice at some parts, but the used buffers are too low-res and the speed is ultra-slow (most of the time the motion is pretty jerky, which won't give you any speed-synch effect).

Looks promising if it's as I "imagine", and taking your comments, it seems it'll be cool... but I'll save my thumb till I watch it 100% correctly I guess.
added on the 2005-07-26 19:27:48 by Jcl Jcl
Good VJset. Cool synch, cool effects and also interesting music. You've made a good work :)
rulezadded on the 2005-07-26 19:42:34 by yero yero
Cool music and good synch. Nice work shine!

I´d consider making the buffers the same size of the back buffer though, you can see some artifacts here and there.

Although it feels a bit too long for a demo, I watched the whole thing without getting bored at all, but maybe adding a "jump to next scene" key would be a good idea.

Of course, that would be completely useless unless people actually read the .nfo file first :-p

Cool vj show, I wish i could see some stunning visuals too, next time. I like it anyway.
rulezadded on the 2005-07-26 21:54:20 by dixan dixan
As it's noticeable, this is recorded live in a script. This is why it seems a bit random, not perfect synched and the scenes a bit long (I need time to prepare next layers, cameras, vars, filters, etc, and each recording I did I changed something in the demo). Also as it is intented to be a VJ app, each fx/layer is rendered to texture (512x512) and some scenes have up to 7 layers plus a post fx filter. Sorry for this problems. I'll try to fix the code part (the artifacts, some polys jumpin), but the script is hard to modify (to much generated events for a script editor). Maybe I'll re-record it or do a remix...
Thx all for the comments! :)

Shine, we had the same problem with the RTT with die anderung (too pixelated borders). Try making the buffer larger than the final rendering on the screen to avoid it

I could only watch the strange cartoon effect (i think it was done with some kind of fragment shader) at the party but was really nice :) For this and the realtime bevel effect, among others, thumb up! =)

Great! Good composition work, and also some nice effects -especially the greetings part-.
Hope to see the VJ in live action soon :)

uninteresting. it isn't that the music or effects are poorly done - they just don't go anywhere. I'm not seeing any minimalism vibe... just an unfocused demo.
sucksadded on the 2005-12-08 11:33:38 by Gaia Gaia
Not impressive. Boring, slow, all seen here and there a thousand times. Music is nicely relaxing though.
added on the 2005-12-15 23:03:15 by eye eye
it's been a while that I am secretly praying for demos made on dub tracks. Too bad this demo does not really play well with its soundtrack. I think it does not quite know how to interact with it here.. almost like the demo thought the soundtrack was more bouncy and hard edged that it really is.

good visuals and a relaxed dub house tune. But those two do not normally mix.
Thus, it is awfully boring and long :/

Rather beautiful visuals and I feel almost bad saying that this one is wrecked by the music - because actually the music is quite nice. It's just not demo music, in my opinion. Demo music should change throughout the production - it should adapt to the visuals, which this tune absolutely doesn't. This does not mean it's bad, which it's not - it's just not my idea of how demo music should be composed.
A very, very good demo indeed! Me likes very much.

Mixed feelings, possibly cool to watch with the party mood - like in a rave party -, but boring if you are at home in front of your compute.

didnt see this one before. nice concepts and ideas, however it's dragged on for far too long and, for me, it gets borring ...
techno. demo.

I love how the different effects and objects are alpha-blended on top of one another.
