LOTS of splines in the water. rulez!

The water "filter" was unbeliavably cool. Extremely good atmosphere in this demo, seriously.

hm once again a great effect ! but once again a boring demo ! sorry this is only my opinion and i just vote it from my personal viewing point !
but for me mfx demos are allways boring !
technically great for sure , but it is not the kind of demo that gets me stunning...
best one effect demo ever, looked damn cute on the big screen!

Not very exciting. Mfx did better demos than this in the past.

rulez added on the 2007-11-08 13:43:54 by sofokles sofokles
impressive and really good looking! Are those ribbons animated in iterative way, or their movement is just a function of time? In other words - can you rewind the demo?

uncle-x: phew - I thought that I would have to molest you about the equations :D. Even so - beautiful parameters. One more question (maybe that's not the right place - but it's surely better than bbs :P) - do you have some kind of inbetween keys (or constant steps) calculator that will assure you that on every config the demo will look the same? If yes, then do you interpolate the positions between such keys? Thanks for the answer.

rulez added on the 2007-11-08 20:05:40 by parcelshit parcelshit
bonzaj: just moving them around based on timedelta and some 'physics'. I haven't really verified if the things move exactly the right way on every config, but on all hardware i've seen the demo they seem to :-)

I don't understand why people say it becomes boring. Maybe it has become tradition in demos to hide how shallow and pointless each effect is by changing scenes every 2 seconds. But this definitely has enough going on to warrant examination for 2.8 mins, assuming you only watch it once. There is a subtle progression that I found beautiful and powerful. (In case you have a short term memory, use the youtube video to compare the first 20 seconds to the last 20 seconds).

This looks "real", not programmed/animated.
