This was probably the most awesome shit I've seen in a while!
The pacing and direction is so picture perfect that it deserves a scene.org award at least!

thank you all for the friendly comments so far!

but the message - well, starts off with typical paniq lyrics and the end part was just a TOO cheap shot. seriously.

i couldn't have done it any other way.

Note to paniq: please wrap the "import psyco" call in lib/nedu/demo.py in a try...except ImportError: pass section for the sake of compatibility -- running slowly is better than not running at all :)

i thought i included psyco in the file - did i forget it? what special error did you get? i agree, psyco is not really needed, it still runs fast enough.

Secondly, are the shaders really, absolutely, utterly necessary? I'd love to watch the demo on my i915 ...

there is one shader used which does uv scaling to do the "drawing" effect. since i am doing this with a 5mb curved lettering polygon, i doubt that anything in software could be that fast. wait for the video.

Took an eon to precalc, what's up with that?

you might notice that in a subdirectory, svg sources (scalar vector format) are included. those shapes are being polygonized and outlined during the loading process which takes ages the first time you run the demo. it creates cache files so it loads much faster the second time.

I love it in principle, just wish it was more accessible..

can you explain that further?

gargaj, great work. didn't have a look yet but i was told it works.

W32 port works for me. Insane loading time indeed. Nice timing and something you don't see too often, yet, as a demo it doesn't work for me. And I don't like the music either.

I would NOT reccommend the -w parameter. eh, the loadtime isnt that bad. it's the suspense... no loadbar...

i watched this on demoscene.tv, and i was impressed. now after watching it again, who would ever think that 4 colors would bring so much happiness?

a timeless classic.

thank you all for the comments so far...

Why is this in dutch though?

it's german. at the beginning of the project i had the choice of doing this in english and thus opening for a larger audience, or choose the language of the people watching this on the bigscreen, to increase the emotional effect. you know that words in english sound more distant and less associated with imagery when it's not your mother tongue. i will add a translation.

Great music, great pace but the lyrics are too emo for my taste.

the demo is not, as shifter called it, a "typical german angst" demo, but it describes the dissolution of the ego, induced by e.g. consciousness altering chemicals, followed by a love poem to existence and time that in the end violently pulls the spectator back to the political, economical, religious and ecological problems of our time.

English subtitles, please!!! :)

yup, will be in the final.

The title clearly refers to the loading time. ;)

hehe :)

sorry for crashing the party a bit here, but anyone with some basic professional typographic design knowledge would probably find this example of fontplay rather dull and static. I can't read german, and that lessens the impact for me, but still there are ways to make this more universally accessible by creatively manipulating the letters. just take a look at the books by jan tschihold and emil ruder...

well, it's worth a thumb for trying a new direction for all the scene. keep it up! 8)
rulezadded on the 2006-08-14 15:49:06 by bhead bhead
bhead, yes you are right. there is lot of room to add all kind of font animation trickery and so on, but that would have required a lot more work than i was able to put in.

i am looking forward to other productions that go in similar directions.
added on the 2006-08-14 15:56:33 by paniq paniq
nice effect, but not sure if that's enough for a thumb
added on the 2006-08-14 17:23:45 by gg|rhg gg|rhg
i kinda agree with bhead here, there could be done a LOT more with typographic elements. and also, those small "growing" ornaments in the letters could have been used more excessively.

but it's still a nice and unusual prod.

I already gave my thumb up but I just wanted to add that I really like that this demo actually has a message. That some people seem to opose that message is not a problem, atleast it makes them think

Art has always been a powerful way to express yourself and although abstract audiovisual shows are nice too we really need to see more demos like this IMHO.

You included it, but psyco seems so be _very_ picky about the underlying Python version. I don't remember the exact wording, but the message was complaining about psyco's .so file not being compiled for my installed version of Python (2.4.4c0 from Debian unstable).

the demo passes following stages of the divine experience/hero myth: (ego) introspection/collapse/destruction - death - (universe) revelation/enlightenment - (world) resurrection/contemplation

it is not only corporate logos. the order is important.

Also, whiny.

no, i'm a happy being. not all parts of the demo are self-destructive. think again please.

...and paniq was just showing off his love for cock and ranting about how the manual omitted how to apt-get stuff, but the gist is the same -*his* demo doesn't work without having to run off and install crap that isn't already there either :)

there is a precise list of libs to be installed here
added on the 2006-08-30 08:22:28 by paniq paniq
shifter, my criticism wasn't about libs i have to install - it was about libs my distro doesn't provide.
added on the 2006-08-30 08:25:34 by paniq paniq
that's a list of things on the compo machine, not neccesairily the requirements of the demos running on it. Plus, they're not in the info file.

True, this was more a stab at what Trace had to bitch about. But that doesn't change the fact that this demo doesn't run without having to fiddle around.

And hey, my distro seemed devoid of wine -but that was nothing adding a line in the repository list could beat. You could consider bitching less about the frailities of life :)

Is it just me or is this a genuine (nearly) infinite-zoomer using SVG graphics for really tiny stuff?

Oh, and for me it worked immediately on Ubuntu (Xubuntu to be precise), but then again I've got more than just the default install here. The files you need to get are probably in the universe repository, which must be specially enabled in Synaptic.

I DID, however, have a problem in one screen right after the last german word fades out- the screen went gray and stayed that way until the symbol-zoomer part.

Is it just me or is this a genuine (nearly) infinite-zoomer using SVG graphics for really tiny stuff?

yes it is. at least if you arrange the elements right. you cant do it in svg directly, you need to use your own editor for that.

I DID, however, have a problem in one screen right after the last german word fades out- the screen went gray and stayed that way until the symbol-zoomer part.

weird. did the growthings appear in the first scene?

added on the 2006-09-02 16:08:32 by paniq paniq
Uh, no. The first thing I see (once the music starts) is 'warum fühle ich' rushing in at me on a white background. The last thing I see is 'allein' rushing out, and then the piano starts. All I can see for a minute or so is a static distorted 3-shaped sort of thing that looks more like a leftover display artifact than any demo object.

I don't have Pixel Shaders 2 on this thing (GeForce 4 Ti 4200 Go)... maybe I need some other SDL component I don't have installed?

(I checked the page of requirements and all that's missing was libsdl-sound1.2)
added on the 2006-09-04 08:16:52 by crusader crusader
Hmm... as for growthings, having seen the video, I didn't exactly see them as intended. Instead of growing, they seem to show up as zoomed in overlays, for the period of time they SHOULD be growing (according to the video). It's a rather odd effect, and makes a few of the words much harder to read (not that I can read German anyway- I never would have guessed anything like the translation)

I saw nothing like the text outline drawing. That's where the artifact comes in, and that's where I'm guessing the pixel shaders are required.
added on the 2006-09-04 09:10:56 by crusader crusader
yep. vertex shaders are required to transform uv coordinates smoothly. and i guess you do not have those either.

For the "brand new outstanding design" I just want to remind, similar effect (with all limitation of technology) we already seen in Hardwired demo (one of the first sequences). in Die EwigkeitSchmerz we hawe the idea polished to Glanz and pulled to extent -- the result is indeed outstanding.

funny that i never gave this a comment allthough it is one of the most touching demos i ever experienced.
of course that has to do with me being german and able to connect to the lyrics somehow, i can understand that for others its just a bunch of text with a well done but not ground-breaking single effect.
it also makes me think of the first time ever i took magic mushrooms (but the corporate logos werent there!), hehe.
the music is also brilliant, i couldnt think of anything more fitting.

in the end i like masagin better (because theres more effects and diversion) but this production is paniq in its (or his?) purest form.
such a shame he stopped being active in the demo bizniz, this prod shows theres a _lot_ of unexplored grounds when sceners start to think outside of the common (and it also shows that there is a reason why many outstanding artists are doing drugs ;).
