I love this one, totally my cup of tea (first I didn't really like the music, but finally it's ok =)).
Sync is rather good.
Colors, graphics and effects are so beautiful.

Respect.

this is really lovely. we all knew traction were the kings of blurred lines, but combined with the *excellent* soundtrack this never gets boring or uninspired. no real climax, but it doesn't need one. really solid demo and should have placed higher than 4th).. oh; and nice to see henning back in action :)

RK track is just great (that's the one i had too).

Beautiful demo.
rulez added on the 2007-04-09 18:17:11 by Buckethead Buckethead
Again, I feel like I'm watching another recycled Traction demo, except more wireframes and particles than the last.

As talented as Preacher is, this doesn't capture my interest.

It very polished though and nice to see some classic scene names in the credits.

Simply beautiful. Just my kind of fairytale. Excellent soundtrack too. Should've placed higher, like 2nd or so :)

very ASDish
rulez added on the 2007-04-09 22:32:08 by mrdoob mrdoob
Very ASDish indeed,though I still prefer ASD's demos (and older Traction demos). The colors really disagreed with me in some scenes. But overall the visuals were good and I liked the soundtrack.
rulez added on the 2007-04-09 22:52:14 by DiamonDie DiamonDie
The aspect which reminds of ASD is no bad ripoff (like often with imitations in so many prods) but done extremely beautiful and stands on its own. Very nice, pretty and round.

And of course fine to see (ie. hear) Romeo Knight back in town! :)
rulez added on the 2007-04-09 23:32:59 by sire sire
My favorite demo after fr-041, really deserve 2nd or 3rd place I think
rulez added on the 2007-04-10 00:27:26 by Twinside Twinside
Heh, there are indeed ASD vibes in this, and as Preacher told me at the partyplace when Traction started making this they were like "let's go ASD" (for which of course we feel honoured). The vibes indeed are there but this is absolutely not a ripoff. It's an excellent demo and I enjoyed it thoroughly on the big screen. I especially loved that colorful flower-blooming-like effect (gah I can't describe it).

With this one, traction justifies one more time why it is on my personal favourite groups list! Much <3

very nice use of colors!
rulez added on the 2007-04-10 02:38:54 by button button
What a beauty! My deepest respects for this piece of ASD art. Great to see Romeo Knight is back with awesome music. Only the detailed object in water don't fit to the rest of the style. That's not a typical effect for Traction, that's for the mainstream.
rulez added on the 2007-04-10 04:14:37 by Bobic Bobic
Absolutely lovely demo! Beautiful music, suppa-looking visuals... my personal favourite demo from traction so far
rulez added on the 2007-04-10 07:04:23 by zeebr zeebr
My attraction to Traction was always the abstract style. In this demo I did spot some leafs flying around. But the rest was am excellent combo of ASD and Traction style. The growing tree was beautiful.
rulez added on the 2007-04-10 10:01:59 by Hyde Hyde
yep : best traction demo so far

So smooth! My favourite from BP.
rulez added on the 2007-04-10 12:33:28 by remageFrs remageFrs
Very beautiful, and the absolute favourite Traction prod for me ever. This is the sort of stuff we need to save the scene from the "part time game developer, part time scener"-curse.
rulez added on the 2007-04-10 14:15:13 by Archmage Archmage
Way too ASD, but I still liked it. The tree is yes! Sweet 2D and music too. Good job guys.

Romeo is still rocking. Couldn't believe my ears when I heard this fantastic track. Immediately thought: "Great work, Amusic!" But then I saw the credits saying it was composed by Romeo Knight... Awesome!

added on the 2007-04-10 17:39:59 by Hyde Hyde
they say "very asd:ish" as it is a bad thing. This demo had more than that. Glow to death :)
rulez added on the 2007-04-10 17:40:08 by thec thec
Hyde: indeed, never heard of that Romeo Night before, he's probably a young newcomer but he certainly has a potential to become famous in the demoscene, someday!!! ;)

Welcome to the demoscene Romeo Night!

Traction and Brainstorm meet once again, this time with an even better demo!!

Loved it guys, keep 'em coming :)
rulez added on the 2007-04-10 19:19:11 by ferris ferris
beautiful, tho reminescent of asd. music not my cup, but all in all one of the more enjoyable traction prods.. preacher how about that coop we talked on sunday night?:-)
rulez added on the 2007-04-10 19:21:49 by uncle-x uncle-x
probably the most mature demo Preacher ever did - lovely in every aspect.

Very nice.
rulez added on the 2007-04-10 19:58:10 by wb wb
this is a damn cool demo, but hardly a second where i don't think of ASD, just without the huge amount of triple-a modelling. and when i finally came to the conclusion they have thier own direction, the guitars rock in and everything feels greek again.

anyway, once i can get my mind clear of that ASD-connection, this will be an enjoyable demo of highest standards.

one of the most beautiful demos i have seen. a perfect combination of traction style and asd style. soundtrack is great, too. would have been perfect if that greyish object and the leaves would have been left out.

Traction remains one of my favorite groups. I love this demo, but it is the destinct traction-"effects-en-masse"-side that makes it rule, not the ASD "one-shot-demo"-style (and definately not the guitar-riff-stuff). All in all very nice!

Perhaps, i have seen so far best traction demo.

style: I feel to ASD + Traction.
visual: some beautiful scene.
trax: very nice.

overall great works!

I liked it. The rainy scene (the bottom-left on the screenshot) and the one following it included the best atmosphere. Sometimes though the demo is not very coherent.
rulez added on the 2007-04-11 21:04:46 by jamcar jamcar
You guys should have tweaked this little baby maybe few more weeks but this still is one of the best productions by traction.
rulez added on the 2007-04-11 21:22:12 by waffle waffle
Beatiful colors, music and atmosphere. Even though most parts had not very impressive code in them..
rulez added on the 2007-04-11 21:36:05 by Optimus Optimus
Very beautiful. Only one important thing was missed - an air. Little glowing particles hanging here and there or something like that, to show the depth of the scene (like ASD did it in their demos).
And yes, Romeo Knight is a live legend!

Very pleasing. As several others have said already, it's ASDish (although without the coherence and attention to detail) but still has enough of its own personality to warrant a solid thumb.

Very bad luck no not being placed higher. Beautiful, dreamy and a step onwards from the traditional, albeit good, traction productions. Preacher I once criticised a noisey prod you did and said it would be hard for you to get a new style but this is the right direction I feel. This is great and congrats to all involved. It does bare comparison with ASD but keep going! Thankyou, a real pleasure to watch and something I can show my family.

Very, nice! On the one hand it has some really nice scenes and a good sound track. Therefore Thumb Up! But on the other hand may be the file is a bit too big for the content and I am not sure if it is a good idea to be that close to ASD’s style or the popular-demo leaf scene instead of trying to further develop your own style.

rulez added on the 2007-07-14 14:22:44 by oxb oxb
I like it. The music is very nice even if I usually barf when hearing guitar in a demo full of synthetic imagery. The colours used in the flowing lines parts are great. You get the sensation that the entire rgb palette is showing even if there are only two or three colours + small variations on these making up the lines.

A downside in this demo is the marble floor stuff and textured stuff in general. It comes out too flat for me. The leaves part is probably the one that looks least pleasing. Why not leaves made out of glowing lines eh? :)
rulez added on the 2007-07-14 17:45:01 by loaderror loaderror
Nice demo, even if the asd-ish style is not my cup of tea. Personally i felt it was a bit to long and the ribbon/particle effects were starting to get repetitive. The "cinematique" is very nicely done; this demo manages to create a nice atmosphere....shame i couldn't see this one on the bigscreen....

Deep respect for Traction for maintining its own unique style while yet going in a slightly different direction than before. No particular highlights, but as a whole it stands out from the crowd and is certainly among my favourites.

Really asd-like, and not (just) because of the music. The spiral patterns always remind me of Animal Attraction. Excellent soundtrack even though in general it would be outside my preferences. The synergy is almost exceptional.

One of the best ones from us, definitely. When we were making this, I had no idea who that "romeo knight" guy was and why everyone was so awed by working with him... when the demo ended and people were cheering, that's when I understood.

This was a long project. It was supposed to be originally something like a neo-paganistic occult Spring Equinox tribute (hence all the spirals) to the ASD style, but the concept was abandoned quite quickly. IIRC, a scene with a pentagram existed at some point. Rale was instrumental here, he did pretty much all the stuff with shaders and whatnot. I made glowing lines and prettified things :)

The scene with the blue spiral and the first heavy bit in the music was coded at the partyplace. When we arrived in Germany, there was just 30 seconds of black there. It felt pretty dismal, then me and rale had a few beers and quickly made that.

One of our most enduring things, definitely. Was really happy to come 4th in that kind of a competition. One of my demoscene career highlights, definitely.
