Super high quality design just like I've come to expect from Pandur.

Nice blend of contemporary and retro designs and a really slick little demo!

lack of connection between each cut, but who the fuck cares?...as I understand this demo as a effect demo:
effect1, effect2, effect3, and so on this is irrelevant.

sorry but:
- the robot. colours and btw slugg-slow-framerate crackdown.

this demo has a great colour touch, nice models, and the most important : has effects, ..and nice ones ! just like those seen on MTV reels

Loveable!

thank you guys for your warm words :D
i'll try to fix those bugs in the next days and a mac version etc.
it seems like on some core 2 duo machines the java timer is on speed and runs 3 times as fast as normal. disabling one cpu for the exe helped in one case.

btw, can some admin add java platform, because it is a java demo

nd here is a video version

At the end of the day it's just a pile of random (and fairly simple) moving design-sketches with "design logos"/overlays.

It's not a bad demo, it's just the kind you forget about very quickly.

very nice, but doesn't beat pageturner. loved the last scene most, some others were a bit dull imho.

Not bad at all, but a little slow-paced, and the bassy parts of the music didn't have any bass unfortunately. :)

thanx alot for the comments on the music too ... Glad you enjoyed it.
rulez added on the 2007-12-30 18:07:54 by Looza Looza
and btw, the music was mixed for the big, big party-setup, thus less bass. A proper version will appear on my homepage soon, keep checking.

Runs pretty smooth on an intel imac, even at 1900x1200 with 2x AA. Except for the ribbons part - that was a little slow but had nasty jerky movement when the camera moved round the corners (like it was moving on the diagonal in big steps instead of following the curve if that makes sense).

Otherwise, nice stuff indeed especially the supershapes part. I do wish this kind of demo would have more interesting text in the overlays though :)

Nice one.
rulez added on the 2008-01-02 10:34:24 by ferris ferris
easily my favourite from the compo, but i couldnt get it to run on hw - what version of java etc does it need? does it need any special stuff installed?

Clean and smooth. Any somehow really kind of "Best of MTV". A very good example that design is based on ideas, no a gfx power of the chips.

seemed somewhat rushed, and lots of the scenes didn't fit together, but there were a few really cool parts, and i absolutely adore the use of colors.

also the soundtrack was cool.

Very nice production (PANDUUUUR STYLE).
I would complain about the tune being a bit redundant but as it's been made in 3 hours at the party place, i'll thumb this up.

i watched the movie version on my ibook (guess it was too slow hehe)

and i love this demo. some more dynamic fx would be nice (like the last one, love it), thats the only comment i've got.

excellent work, pandur.

I am using Sun Java SE v1.6.0_03b-05 and my detailed computer setup is at http://alpha.zimage.com/~ant/antfarm/about/computers.txt (primary/gaming/Windows box).

exospect.txt says:
\\__ problems

- java seems to have timer problems on core duo/hyperthreading cpus,
you can start demo.exe and disable one cpu (in task manager) (...)

- seems not to work on all systems in fullscreen, because of pfbuffer
problems, i will check this later...


Windowed mode work for me! Try it if you get crashes too.

The demo is not bad. Audio is OK. I accidently hit enter key during the demo got statistics like FPS.

Very nice demo, mostly for the choose of colours and for the design of scenes and overlays.

I see the black spot in the center of the screen too, with default settings and no AA.

But nonetheless, we would like to see more demos crafted like this one.

Doesn't support multisampling on my computer when the other demos does.
About after that scenepic in this prods information that rotating logotextthingy went for a moment(like the hundredth part of ten seconds)
a bit bugly, flashed a bit on white from a rotatating texts corner. But that didn't really bother me so much.
But I give a pig.

great d'n'b music by LOOZA,

title zooms out, lots of tetris like, red polygons, moving upwards, credits to the authors,

visualization of tree D.S. with edges and rings, rotating, and morphing, a logotype appears, and disappears,

2 colorfull roads build tile by tile, logotypes are painted over the roads and disappear,

4 columns of boxes build up in different varieties,
3 times a description of delivery vehicles turn around a center,

brown 3D city road and in its middle a 4 legged robot, magenta and yellow

side view of the buildings in the road, some black balls appear, disappear, 3 rings rotating appear, disappear, a logotype with "05R07" shows a while, then disappears

a new logotype, 3D build in yellow/magenta/cyan, extrudes its letters with the music beat, and tremble

the black balls from before, morphing into forms

some polygons, orange/yellow/magenta/cyan/aquamarine stretch into bands that build a 3D form

does not like Windows 64 bit JVM:

C:\Users\praetor_alpha>java -version
java version "1.6.0_32"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_32-b05)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 20.7-b02, mixed mode)
Apart from glitchy fades between the first three scenes it ran fine here, on w7/64

Code: C:\>java -version java version "1.6.0_37" Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_37-b06) Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 20.12-b01, mixed mode, sharing)


Holy damn, this is so darn stylish - together with that music, woar woar!
