i see some effort and i especially digg the cherry tree, but the rest is still just unbalanced average.

Crashes on normal detail, locks up my PC on low detail :(

ATI X700, Pentium M, 1GB RAM (I admit, not the best specs)

ATI Radeon (exclude 4800 serise) is only Lowquality mode.
try to check Lowquality mode at startup.

kioku, I checked low quality mode, but then my PC locked up during loading (had to push the reset button)

here, have a thumb down, just to remind you never to slap such an ugly depth of field effect on a scene again. it doesn't work if there's nothing in the background!

instant coup de coeur!!

so naively beautiful, the growing gossamer (the virgin's threads) effect is so subtle =)

it works on my machine, with "Low Quality" switch:
ATI X800GT, Athlon64 3000+, 1GB RAM

those who owns Radeon and has ecountered application crash,
please try latest Catalyst driver.

I don't call that "dof", I call that "simulation of bad eyesight" or "the projectionist got sleepy and fucked up the lenses" :-/
You just ruined a lot of nice effects by having an horrible fuzzy outline all over the place. (And I'm honnest here: For me it's borderline headache + escape key)

Nice demo.
Perhaps, I think that it is their current demo and the best.
The first scene thinks that it doesn't connect with the following scene.
but, the scene after that was cool.
Their efforts are worth obtaining the thumb though the overall balance is not taken.

paniq & Dbug:
They made this demo in 2-3 days though it was a right opinion as for DOF.
It is worth obtaining only even of the effort the thumb.

Anyway, keep up good work!

About Blur effect, I mean DOF and fuzzy outline effect in this demo.
But I think so about background. Next time, i think about some effects.

not bad, but depth of field != blur everything to death, then blur the background some more.
added on the 2008-08-28 20:12:13 by ryg ryg
Although the demo fit together quite well in terms of colours/style, it felt like there was little direction guiding the flow between the scenes.
Still, liked it a lot. Keep getting better - looking forward to 2chparty! o/

Can we get a kkapture? I was only able to watch it on the demoscene.tv recording.

Really great! Catchy soundtrack with nature theme (reminded me of Sunflower and Nature 2.0). Maybe my favorite of the compo! <3

Most scenes looked really nice, although direction was lacking.

At first, I thought this might be gz and basehead, aka the Order of K aka K-Rad (the DOF and ribbon style is similar), but nope, they flaked. I liked the uplifting music and bright colors. I'm a sucker for depth of field too, although it wasn't quite right on close-up objects. On my R4850, it ran too slow by default, and even in "low quality mode" the cherry blossom part was still slow. Keep it up, I hope to see more demos from you guys!

it ran well for me on 3850 except for the cherryblossom tree

Quite enjoyable. The only thing i didn't like is how everything's blurred. The idea of DOF is that you focus on something, not that the whole scene is blurry (like needing glasses).. Really like the feel of the demo though, so a small thumb up :)
rulezadded on the 2008-08-31 07:21:15 by Remboooo Remboooo
very nice! deserved a higher place, imho. the music could've been better, though. and what everybody said about blur, but that didn't ruin it for me! real pretty scenes, nice pace, well done!

Cool. I liked the chord structure in the tune, and the gfx were done well.

Btw this runs fine in HQ mode on an ATI 3870. The grass and blur effect even look better than the HD demoscene.tv version (grass shading is smooth not all polygonal).
Should've been a lot higher. Looked very good, though it was also very slow even on hd8450.
