hmm... there is a big & large loading... you have been warned.

yeah, looks quite well, i missed some other scenes tho. But, yeah, great! :)

precalced ambient occlusion, eh? good shit.
rulez added on the 2006-07-25 13:38:29 by smash smash
It would have been cool to somehow know the loading part was actually loading.
This seriously kicks some ass, best Fuzzion release in many time. The synth should be improved though, it dated long ago :)
Bigs thumbs up!

You need better sound ;)
The visuals are inspired in Ocean Machine, right? :)

Ambient occlusion in 4k...a first? Thumbs up for that! Lots of clicking on the synth...no bytes for envelope left? I can believe that :-)

When seeing the precalc, I thought the 4k messed up. But then... ;)

extremly long precalc. but looks quite good. especially the cube.
rulez added on the 2006-07-25 20:25:09 by blala blala
Pretty messed up precalc screen. The intro looks pretty nice but I miss some more effects here.
added on the 2006-07-25 21:06:26 by StingRay StingRay
Very nice looking rendering!
I didn't think the precalc was so extreme that some claims, well below 30 seconds on my computer.
Worth the wait!

Then either you have a fusion reactor built on top of a ferrari under your desk, or the precalc is done by the videocard. It was like more than five minutes here, at 2ghz
added on the 2006-07-26 01:57:59 by blala blala
Yeah, the precalc is done mainly by the videocard.

We made this intro in 24h (we got the engine ready for breakpoint but we were so lazy to do an intro...) so... let's gonna say it is a party version :)

We'll try to release a final version soon but let us arrive home first ;)

During the loading time, my thumb started drifting downward, but it went right back up after seeing the pretty AO. Still, a very slow precalc.

peach, could you please be more specific about the crash, as what exactly happened, PC / videocard configuration...
This thing should work with almost any 3D videocard O_o

and of course to the rest of fuzzion. would be cool to calculate scenes while displaying one so you don't have to wait as long to get into it. but maybe you're already doing some of this.
added on the 2006-07-27 04:01:45 by blackpawn blackpawn
It immediately crashed with a white screen and some black pixel. No clue what went wrong.

WARNING:
The initial white screen, with looping music and some black pixels IS the LOADING screen. We tried to be original instead of using the standard bar. Bad choice.

The loading ends when the black blocks reach the top of the screen and can take from 15 secons to many minutes depending on your video card.
We could not fit a "loading" text in the party version, we are working to add it in the final release. Sorry.
added on the 2006-07-27 11:19:04 by drpain drpain
I don't think was a bad choice to do an original loading bar :P
added on the 2006-07-27 11:48:23 by mrdoob mrdoob
Long precalc.
rulez added on the 2006-07-27 11:55:39 by bdk bdk
I don't think the white screen with black pixels is a bad loading screen if you do know that it is a loading screen :D

Anyway, great production, happy to see you come back to powerful code and original content! Great AO!
On the bad side, a bit repetitive (lack of scenes) and the synth is quite obsolete :)

It load very very fast in my computer (AMD 64 3200, 1Gb, Gf6600)
Very beaufitul scenes specially the cube. But you seriously must improve your synth for your next prod :)
rulez added on the 2006-07-31 20:06:48 by KILE KILE
No effects just 3d scenes, but somehow I liked this a bit. Maybe it's because of the music and white designs and smooth shadows, elements I always like.

cool, fantastic!

But don't stick to pure OpenGL 1.1. Put the geometry into a VBO and precalc will be 10 seconds.

Pain, now you need to generate some HDRI reflections...

pretty nice, about 1 minute pre-calc on my 1.8ghz athlon
rulez added on the 2006-08-04 01:16:29 by pdx pdx
Very pretty, the object quality seemed a lot higher than the usual 4k (I'm thinking of, say, Go4) and the synth was pretty good! ...except for the mind-numbing precalc. For a while I thought I was trying to view something using shaders or something I don't have. Well, that and the worst music ever.

Long precalc, but worth it. I can see why smash was annoyed at the thunder-stealing ;) Definitely inspirational.

The loading screen shows each of the pre-rendered shadow textures, right? I think it would have been more obvious it was loading if each texture stayed on screen, giving a more obvious build up.
rulez added on the 2006-08-09 19:27:22 by SiW SiW
Rulez! The only issue is that the intro is actually shorter than the precalc :)

Screenshot doesn't make justice to what's inside of this. Loader music could at least be synchronized to the "real" start of the intro, if not removed or improved a bit. For the rest... enough said!
