Not my cup of tea either. But the effects rock, especially the clouds at the start.. I thought they were some kind of volumetric cloud effects at first. Stunning stuff.

MOAR! use tEiS as a musician next time!

Shoonay: Thanks for the youtube vids!

If anyone has the chance to capture this from a real amiga as well (060/50mhz or preferrably 66mhz) it would be great! Our vhs-cams are unfortunately all being serviced atm..

This final version is quite close to what was shown in the compo at Datastorm. Some tweaks have been done to the effects in the top-left and bottom-right parts of the screenshot, and several ugly glitches between parts have been removed together with some other bugs.

Cool. Lacks some important details in the presentation and design imo. The static dithering in the displacementmap in the cloud scene is a shame - you could at least have animated it :)
Otherwise fresh demo!

Maytz: I don't know how you newschool PC kids do things but I can guarantee that there's no displacement maps in the cloud part. :)
However, there is a static color overlay (2 bitplanes) which is indeed a bit too visible / creates aliasing. I did consider animating it or toning down the color gradient to make it less visible (like in some of the other parts of the demo), but never got around to it.
Annoyingly these overlays also seem to create visible banding on *some* displays and projectors (most visible in the cloud and meta-grid-thingie parts), which I'll need to look into if I ever reuse this technique. For now you'll just have to pretend this is how things work on Amiga ;)
nice demo!
rulezadded on the 2011-02-11 13:45:27 by endo endo
@Korvkiosken: well, newschool pc kid - dunno about that - been on the amiga platform since 1989 :) - but using af lookup table (displacementmap) could easily have been used for colors and position.

Maybe doing the dithering inlined in the c2p, as Blueberry explain here could be a way to it?

Still cool demo :)
added on the 2011-02-11 14:07:57 by maytz maytz
Maytz: It's a *static overlay* that never even exists in the chunky buffer, so there's no need whatsoever for baking it into the c2p since it already comes for free. :)

As for the displacement maps; I dare you to do a similar effect using the techniques you mentioned. ;)

Anyway, I'm turning into one of those 'tards who turn prod comments into forum threads.. :(
Korvkiosken: haha, I would never take up that challenge, since I'm growing old and lazy - very lazy, actually so lazy the everything beoynd MSVC take up to much of my time :)

added on the 2011-02-15 17:30:49 by AzzaroMWI AzzaroMWI
"silly 4k intro on pc" -- well.. odd comparison. i do agree that it's a bit low on grapical content but it looks intentional (focus on effects, not on overlays) and stuff moves around nicely

that said, in terms of "type of demo" it's not comparable to the 2nd ranking demo

basically what spike said about design !equals overlays :)

Have you seen Mwi demos? They're among the best designed demos on the Amiga!

Obviously, you work to your strengths. The coder here is clearly not a designer, but has made some great effects. The upshot is that it will impress a lot of coders, the downside is that it doesn't appeal as much to the designers/artists.

The coder here is clearly not a designer

wade: sorry, i disagree. the selection of colors, lighting/shading, and progression of effects in this demo for me clearly are design aspects. and slummy did them well.

just because it has a black backround doesn't make it a badly designed demo.
