hooray my first 4k with music and stuff! thanks trace and herotyc for the music and especially thanks trace for helping with design and steering me away from some of the crazier things i tried haha.

oh sorry auld, i'll update with a compat version. it requires d3dx 32.

Thumbs up for blackpawn's great work! Really looking forward to start working on the next one ;)

Btw, If someone wants to listen the full-version of the track, here you have:

yeah, good work! I liked the "morph" effect in the sphere and the synch.

the sound and the syncs were damn horribly cheesy destroying any whatsoever replay value for me. the graphics sure looked nice and smooth though.

at first it looked like crap, but got better in the end with the morphing and reflecting thing.

Yeah. Pretty nice, good colours and smooth (except the major deformation that was too slow.. presumably my shitty video card to blame)

weee, the 'stare at the center of the twirl for 10 seconds then look at your hand'-trick works \o/

amazing 4k, congrats for the tech & design!

This 4k rocks! Looking forward to trying out your GmDls Tool :)

Looks clean and cool. I really liked the reflections on the spikey thing, although the overall design was kinda boring.

Great! It could be much better with a better syncro and in blue :D

Dang good prod for a intro 4k. Looks like my talk that mentioned crinkler helped a bit ;-)

pleasant 4k, but nothing special.

I thought this was a really nice 4k effect demo until blackpawn told me that the reflections on the sphere object are not envmapped but raytraced. BP, you are fucking crazy.

Looks really good and there are some nice technical details - but not really much Content? Anyway Thumb Up! Btw: Is there any health risk watching this one :D ?

oh nearaz, no no the whole thing is not ray traced hehe it's just the reflections on the ball. so instead of simple environment map or anything it does proper ray trace per pixel.

YES! nice music, synth stuff

great visuals especially the spiral, music kinda sounds like a cat coughing though lol

Not bad. Especially as a 4k. Not my cup of tea though.

An absolute eye fucker. Kind of liked it :P.
But yeah I am with Confused on the music.
