Didn't like the music, but the visuals were nice.

Excellent stuff, my favorite in the compo.

The kind of prod that makes the demoscene so interesting, lightyears away from boring 3d flybies made with generic game-like engines.

Definitely my favourite too. 1in10 seriously starts to creep me out, and the visuals show that the stylistic corner Uncle-X almost trapped himself in (in the last mfx demos) seemed to have a back door. Also very much what Keops said.

And yes, next time more VP61 artifacts in the binary please :)

A+ for the music. Demo is quite nice too but I think the bump mapped sort of tunnels were a bit boring.

I don't know how the fuck you spawn the ideas for both sound and music - I'm pretty sure that I had to be on drugs if I had to.

I like the demo, however it feels a bit bumpmappy here and tere.

very average material ( mapped torus ) put together in a nice way with a "special" music. I liked deities much more.
added on the 2008-07-02 20:07:12 by nytrik nytrik
awesome ofcourse. This could have made a classic demo (like deities) if there was some sort of concept behind. Nevertheless, this is a demo with capital D.

Awesome. Frigging awesome. By far the best mfx demo in ages (since Aether at least), and I'm beginning to think that this is in fact the best mfx demo of all time. It made my brain hurt and I thank you for that.

And oh yeah, extra special kudos for the Kubrick reference.

rulezadded on the 2008-07-02 21:03:00 by masterm masterm
really not my taste. i think what bothers me most is that the textures and specular look so 1997 it physically hurt me (i thought we were finally through that for good).

but even so - it amounts to a tunnel part on steroids and a grid of transparent cubes with a rather uninteresting particle system in the middle.

of course there's nothing wrong with that by itself, but when the demo so utterly fails to capture my attention that that's literally all i see, there's no way i'm giving it a rulez.

Very impressive. The opening effect alone is worth the wait of the release of the Intel Demo Competition entries. :) The soundtrack is just eerie yet substantial enough to work perfectly with the visuals. I just love when coders have a sense of style. Perhaps the best MFX demo this year!

Btw; You just HAVE to appreciate the balls of including chopped samples of your own scene handle in the track. :)

very "nice" mood in the intro and a seriously cool shader in what followa. I know it is the mfx way, but I would love to see the shadereffect without the distortion a frame or two. I get this sneaky feeling they're hiding something. Anyway, very cool demo. The ending is awesome.

I like the spacey, exploring the monolith concept, and the intro with the blue contrast was cool. Somehow it didn't really hold together for me though. I think it's that I'm not moved by that kind of breaky electronic audio unless there's more common thread in it, and the visuals went along with it.

Now if NASA could just find more stuff like this in space.

I'm unsure if there should be more symmetry and straight edges or if there should be less straight edges and symmetry and more organic stuff? It is probably best the way it is.

Huh? Most PC demos are NOT 3D flybys nowadays. There are still a group or two stuck in 1998, sure, but if you watch more than two demos a year, you'll quickly see that "3D flybys" are not the norm, but the exception.

Most demos in '98 were no fly-bys either. Most people still stuck to their tunnels and random shiny, morphing objects instead. :)

zefyros: Who's talking about "sensitive"? You're being called on saying something that just isn't true. :) It's not about taste or likes/dislikes, it's about the fact that most demos nowadays are not flybys. If it seems like it to you, then you watch only a certain kind of demos, or very few demos. :)

This has nothing to do with the prod, a big sorry for the authors.
gloom: sensitive = sarcasm. ok, maybe or actually I do have something against today's techdemos with all in 3d and I do use the words "3D flyby demo" in a more wider perspective than most people (and I know that). It's just the way I am, sorry. I usually expect something more from something that is several megabytes than 3D (not talking about this mfx prod). Actually I don't care if I'm some sort of heretic (etc.), but I do not like people, who don't know me, talking shit about anything I do. I do watch demos. If you want to continue this debate, start a thread to bash me around or something. There's no need to flood the comments of this production (which deserves good attention) with stuff that doesn't have that much do with it. Peace.

very nice... maybe i'm blonde but i saw a concept behind this demo... end looks like space where cubes flying. good idea and the music is cool minimalistic stuff.

all in all excellent demo without torus knots and onlythesameeffects...

thump up!...

i loved the voices speaking in the start and at the end of the show , loved the photorealistic scenes & effects too but what the hell did you choose that "music" ?
it ruined all your effort so piggy for me despite all the rest

I think that's what shaders were invented for. I was tired of watching the very same shanders in all scene prodz, but this is finally something new,

Not usually a huge fan of MFX, but this prod is great. The music fit well with the visuals, and the intro/outro scenes tied everything together well. IMO, the best of the compo!

visuals are creepy, kinda alien4 style. excellent use of bumpmapping and organic textures. the tv distortion is getting old and it looks like just 2 effects (like most pc demos). but overall, it still rules.

This must be the MFX production I like most along with Deities and Aether. It's nothing but mind-bending in every possible sense. Simply everything fits together perfectly. The music - which I probably couldn't stand when listening to it isolated - the eerie spider-web type of objects, the colourful surface that looks like a planet surface, the slimy tunnels. Every single aspect of the demo leaves me crying out loud "just... what.. the hell IS this?".

Coupled with the voice samples it all generates a brilliant atmosphere, something that captivated my senses completely while watching. Thanks for the ride, Uncle-X, Pommak et al. Please keep innovating like this!

Once again, mfx cames with something completely original. This is an awesome demo.
The visual reminds me some Giger's paintings.
The music by 1in10 is huge.
By the way, where the dialogs come from?

The uncertainty of what we're seeing here is matching perfectly with 1in10's moody soundtrack and creates an environment which at least seems to feel epic. May we see corny color schemes, may we see non-hypercomplex particle systems - who cares? The impression it left on me is purely based on the feeling it created and only the best demos make me forget about the rest for a while.

Loved the opening effect, the way that the glow moves across the screen - very cool.
The soundtrack is, well, different. Some might say it's ingenious, but somehow it did not REALLY mesmerize me. Was close, though.
BIG piggie for this one - almost a sow. ;)
Awesome biological scenes... great industrail soundtrack... but the end comes too fast D:

The thing about 'experimental' stuff like mfx and CPU do, is that you never know when something is going to completely and utterly captivate you... and I think this is the moment I "got" mfx. Delicious textures... made me want to crawl up to the bigscreen and scratch my fingers down it. (Luckily I wasn't that pissed.)
