Runs very smooth on my laptop.
Coder colors, cubes, trippy effects. It has that cool oldschool early windows demo vibe.

The only downside is the the big stoic dichotomy between the sound and visuals, that doesn't work very well for me.

I wish there would be some nice transitions and more color scheme consistency between the scenes (and an exclusive soundtrack), but it's a nice twist on an old effect, so thumbs up.

Very nice style, i really liked the visuals and the colours and such. I enjoy this style more than - say - "Masagin" (I felt like this was shorter and more to the point, focusing on the essentials). The music was definitely not bad I think it would've been possible for me to be a bit more blown away by it given the awesome visuals :).

A bit depressing that I couldn't get more than 1-2 fps when running the demo. I couldn't even get it to run smoothly on 1080p from YouTube ;D. Then again, I _am_ running it on my laptop.

bah, wtf, you made a good effort
rulez added on the 2009-12-30 15:37:40 by thec thec
How is this effect done?

First of all you need to notice that no geometry changes at all. Basically we use two different meshes: a very regular grid and a very irregular mesh that was created by randomly slicing a cube.

Then there is a pixelshader that calculates a potential field of 4 points. The potential is shredded with sin() and modulo and then all pixels inside a certain range are rejected with "clip()". As a final touch, pixels near the border are tinted.

To make it more interesting, we first introduce a vertex shader that wobbles the mesh a bit.

The cell like effect is made by adding a texture to the potential field.

navis: basically a straight implementation of the ideas in the "starcraft 2 effects and techniques" paper (http://www.docshare.com/doc/195415/StarCraft-II-Effects-and-Techniques). i'm not really happy with my implementation though, it's pretty sloppy in places and gobbles up too much gpu time.

Well, this was... I mean, I don't mind experiment-demos at all, but I didn't like the colors, the music or the effect all that much. Also, how it manages to drop a significant amount of frames on my PC (Core i7, 6 GB RAM, GeForce 280 GTX) is sort of beyond me. Perhaps Windows 7 is to blame.

clear winner because of lack of real competition. as 'debris' was a demo in a size of an intro this is a 4k intro wrongly oversized to a demo. just a piggy.

absolutely forgetable. c'mon farbrausch, you can do a lot better than this!

good to see chaos making fx again, and good modern use of some classic stuff (metaballs, "alpha test" manipulation).
however, that ssao.. no. :) just manages to show off all the ways in which ssao doesn't work - very artefacty.

Fresh! Didn't like the beginning, but the effect is getting much better in the middle (when the music uses whales sounds). Music is quite cool, although i would have prefer a better sync... In the end, I like a lot the demo feel.... that's for sure a demo, not a movie/game's theme replicant. Running smoothly on ati 5770 but almost unviewable on a 8600 GM.

I think this is good work, but not cool for farbrausch. I feel Concept, but graphic - some effects maybe very hard workly. I like old work but this not index of expirience.

Sound synhro - weel. Music fun.
Cube and some objects looks like trouble`s mesh in OGL-tutorials.

I mark this work for "OK" only beyond prestige of the group. Maybe I not good on demoscene-making, but I have demoscene spirit and art-feeling.

I absolutely love how, the more status you have as person or group, people put their efforts into interpreting every single fart you drop. If you have a problem with overrating others, you need to adjust your attitude. But don't tell anybody else what to do or not - will you?

Demo or die. That's the spirit. Don't waste your energy on yelling. If you think this is shit - use the proper word: SHIT. But stop the fuck telling others to fulfill your absurd expectations.

Kindergarten.

Well, what rpfr said, and there's nothing really stunning technically here, just "yay they finally discovered raymarching too".. :)

but anyway, debris is worth a second thumb up so i put it here. :)

when I read this I realize that 4k expectations of today are quite high.
After the pixel-shader boom, I'm curious to see if 4k will still evolve in this way for the next ten years, or if we already have hit a limit...
