It is a very picky production.

too slow, but the growing flowers/plants were damn cool to see.

Looks lovely but I can't thumb up something that's this simple and runs at 3 fps.

damn enjoyable, put a big smile on my face. could've used some more attention to detail

The low quality of the grass/trees kind of ruins it for me.

lovely stuff. the only spoiler was the music and the horrible font.

ok.your rulez
rulezadded on the 2006-08-14 21:10:06 by wie8 wie8
The butterfly and the viewing angles :)
But it wont start on my machina:

Samsung x20, Mob.Radeon x600|64MB, Directx 9.c

It starts the precalc but the progressbar stops without further notice right after the 1st half of the "k" :/
rulezadded on the 2006-08-14 21:47:32 by d0DgE d0DgE
Not bad but partly very ugly and the music could have been better too. And it's utterly boring so no thumb.

The growing flowers effect was nice, but other than that and the trees/butterflies, not too much content. And the camerawork wasn't that good either.
Oh and geez, if you do grass of that kind, you just don't show it from above! :)
The music was nice.

All in all still deserves a thumb.

font sucked otherwise very nice.
best release so far

please upload this stuff somewhere else. can't download from ftp.untergrund at all and there is no such file @ scene.org. why ?

d3dx9_24 should be banned.

Runs really, really slow (like 4-5fps) on my system (6800GT with 256mb, 1.5gb ram and 1.8ghz AMD64).

Your best intro yet, the growing plant was nice. It's a bit slow and too repetitive for my taste tho so piggie.

Mixed feelings because it ran really slow here (at least in the scenes with the too many trees). The music kicks ass, the flowers are almost beatiful. Deserves a thumb up though..

really nice but also too repetitive

come on...
this looked so like "we can make growing stuff like fairlight does too!".
nice anyways but the grass really destroyed it...

This well staged, paced. Very prtty. I like it very much.

Some great moments. I enjoyed it at the party, and I still enjoy it now! Although my machine is a little slow for it. I'm very much looking forward to watching future prods from you.

Looks nice. Grass is not so good. Can't judge it from the (bad) video...

nice idea, I love nature theme =)

Rewatched. I really like it, it's a bit cheesy in a good way, and now it runs properly on my new machine... :)

a bit too cheesy for me

I'm four years late to make such a comment, and it might end up not being read, but here I go anyway.

I think this demo has a nice concept, but misses the step to being a great prod by only details.

First thing that stroke me was the color: the green at the beginning is plain ugly; it gets better later on. The the models flicker everywhere, something should have been done to correct this. As said, the camera frames and moves are too cheap, too sudden, not to mention that is intersect with the model a some point. Some moments look great though, but not all are equally carefully made. As said already too, don't show the drawbacks of your rendering: don't show the grass from above. At last, the 3D font doesn't work a lot.

So in the end, it's all about details. It's a cool prod, but it's sad to have the feeling it could have been awesome with little more.

Oh, also I had the same issue with the progress bar stopping. Giving the program a signal made it finish its loading. I didn't have sound though.
