The music is excellent, the visuals are excellent, but I feel they don't work well together.

I always feel if you're using soft and slow-paced visuals, you need a soft and slow-paced track to give a sense of cohesion.

That aside, this shows some exceptional talent!

There seems to be some problem with the shaders on ati cards, and since I never did shader dev on ati cards I also have no idea whats going wrong there... but will try to find out and put an ati compatible version out there in the next days... I'm also working on a video writer so I can upload a nice video of it. Linux and mac os ports should also follow, since I developed this completly on mac os x using a haskell tool (@blala I see a haskell logo there \o/)

Reflecting ribbons!

The resolution-named versions did not change the resolution here. That was somewhat annoying.
rulez added on the 2009-08-03 19:38:51 by Blueberry Blueberry
Didn't like the 2nd part (both, music and visuals) much. The first part however is very cool. Music rocks and interesting visuals too. Should have won, much cooler than then winning 4k IMHO.

blueberry: the resolution named versions are named windowed if I got that right. I still haven't looked up how to change the resolution on windows, but will try to do it in my future windows productions.
added on the 2009-08-03 20:04:53 by jix jix
Hm.. The colours are too fuzzy, and whatever it is that's going on down in the water during the second part; bad idea!

As a bonus, my mum demanded I shut the door when I watched this just now, so I guess the soundtrack isn't all too good either ;)

Piggie, then..

xteraco: if i was you i'd check my drivers. Being unable to run this intro as well as Bluflame's one might actually means you've got a problem with your hardware. You're the first having that problem here. Go get a clue. Update your drivers, dude.

some months ago Mentor pointed me to this paper too. I discussed with him (and with Smash too, I think) that the technique shouldn't be called "Sphere Tracing", as there is no sphere traced here, but rays. Anyway, thx for the link, I didn't find it back since Mentor showed it to me.
added on the 2009-08-06 20:19:28 by iq iq
Ok-ish, a bit slow.
added on the 2009-08-06 21:14:05 by trc_wm trc_wm
iq: The reason it's called sphere tracing is because the distances that you move along the rays are kind of like bounding spheres, since they have a radius of the lower-bound estimate to the nearest surface in any direction.

..I think it's called so for that reason anyways :)

are the visuals really THAT complex? do you all have high-end gfxcards?

specs:
8800GTS640MB, Intel Quad @4.1Ghz, WinXP, Forceware 186.18

apart from the performance, totally great 4k and much better than 1st place.
