flickering orange screen - ATI X2400HD :/

Did Elef make that track recently? If so, hats off to him for still contributing to the scene. Definitely a nice touch.

Nice little invite. Worked on my linux machine, via wine.

just for the record (and let me guess) ...

those people who can run it have nvidia cards and the rest has ati?

Flickering orange screen on ATI 4870.
Works fine here (9600 GT), nice one. Will try it on my Notebook later (ATI), I guess it won't work on it. :)

quite good, but a little bit repetitive.
Nice music!
rulezadded on the 2009-09-25 19:09:25 by wullon wullon
ok, definately some non-nvidia cards issue.

currently checking what could fix that, in the meanwhile just watch the video instead ....

fix will follow

It starts with far too many cubes, but i love it for the soundtrack and its pace! Nice one!
rulezadded on the 2009-09-25 19:44:01 by Paranoid Paranoid
There is no such thing as too many cubes???
Thanks for the vid. I think it's pretty awesome! I was only a bit bored in the scene right after greetings, as there was a similar one already, and it kinda ruined the otherwise nice pace a bit. But i guess that's nitpicking, good job!
rulezadded on the 2009-09-25 19:53:01 by Serpent Serpent
Nice invit, the music is not my cup of tea but fits well. :D
rulezadded on the 2009-09-25 20:02:55 by Premium Premium
Based on the video I have to say: really nice rendering! Looking forward to see this in full ATI glory :-]
rulezadded on the 2009-09-25 20:06:49 by CrossProduct CrossProduct
what the hell..?

- I hated the text overlays
- the music is... meh...
- really didn't like the pacing or camera movements..
- 100% convinced that sqny could have done this better...

but still the visuals do something for me.. and I know I'll watch it again, more than once.

I really can't say if it's the wine I drank tonight but I felt like standing up and giving it a round of applause after I saw it.

I like the music very much, energetic and interesting.

ATi is strict when compiling shaders. Probably one shader didn't compile and that killed the demo.

final is on the way - gopher and i collectively would like to congratulate nvidia for not raising an eyebrow for division by zero.
added on the 2009-09-26 15:37:45 by Gargaj Gargaj
riiight. so here's the ati fix (until link above is fixed)

big respect to nvidia for making division by zero possible (or at least checking that and making something meaningful out of it)

thats why i love these cards ;)
added on the 2009-09-26 16:00:53 by gopher gopher
pouet download link is now pointing to the correct version.

forget the previous url please. (i renamed the file to prevent confusion with the buggy version)

added on the 2009-09-26 16:09:04 by gopher gopher
Works great, looks awesome! Btw I hate nVidia, you know why? Because as a demo-coder if you code on an nVidia GPU you'll almost never write valid shader code. Big respect to ATI for following the specifications strictly.
added on the 2009-09-26 16:10:16 by xTr1m xTr1m
some pretty cool stuff, i just wish i couldve sneaked in some code during fixing that disables the chromatic aberration :P
rulezadded on the 2009-09-26 16:10:34 by Gargaj Gargaj
Nice and energetic invitation. The opening scene reminds me of a certain 4k intro ;)
I'm not too fond of the colors.

However - the music... either you got _very_ inspired by a certian commercial tune (sorry, can't remember the title), or maybe sampled heavy from it? Please prove me wrong, but I'm pretty sure I've heard this tune, or parts from it several times on the di.fm trance channel...
rulezadded on the 2009-09-26 16:14:52 by Puryx Puryx
i thought the tune isnt fitting too well. must give another watch sometime soon.
added on the 2009-09-26 16:21:56 by ԹHΞΞ ԹHΞΞ
ATI FIX online !!

BIG THX to Gargaj and Gopher who spent so much time for finding the problem !

added on the 2009-09-26 17:08:15 by _H2o_ _H2o_
@puryx .... Maybe it was kinda "plastic angel" song ( wich is also known as WOTW :) )
added on the 2009-09-26 17:13:27 by _H2o_ _H2o_
hey puryx: hahahah its a track from my professional alias Plastic Angel ... :) so dont worry nothing is sampled :)!
rulezadded on the 2009-09-26 17:13:44 by W.O.T.W. W.O.T.W.
WOTW: haha... didn't know that you were behind the Plastic angel alias. In that sense, loads of respect to you - you've been a inspiration for my trance-producing, which is no near this level (yet?) ;)
added on the 2009-09-26 17:20:39 by Puryx Puryx
okayish. uhm. I was particularly annoyed by the camera movements and pacing. The effects are fine but still a bit old and boring.

I second Duckers regarding the camera. I thought it was too much quick-zooms, but other than that: great invitation. It's energetic and inviting. good job!

I love the track but the visuals connect very poorly. Especially the camera synchs in a bad/cheap way :-\

the first half of the track is banging. A shame it didnt stay minimalistic. Nice production all around tho.

The tune is solid, you should have asked for an edit so that you didn't have to keep recycling for minutes and minutes. :) Still, for some reason, I cannot pigface this.
