this kind of production looks greate for me. like to be proud of the creation in simply contest of the incarnation of the mind onto a creation.

This was awesome! Regardless it was just another fractal raymarcher, the structures and atmosphere made it interesting for me.

My favorite in the compo as well. It's not quite your run-of-the-mill raymarched fractal, there's something more to it.

Uploaded a quick 720p capture on YouTube for "realtime impaired" sceners. Although I would recommend watching it in realtime as the codec really hates fractals ... anyway, enjoy! :)

rulezadded on the 2012-04-08 13:08:55 by rez rez
Liked this a lot, especially the subtle (well apart from the bright yellow) changes in colour. However the readme mentions 'fractalforums.org' which is not found so I think it should be 'fractalforums.com' which looks like a great site. Framerate was a bit low for me, but I'm sure I saw crossfading which is cool.

Amazing production, my favorite of the compo, and great to see other people inspired by modern fractals :)

Exins problem (and mine, on my laptop) is due to the Windows 7 busy cursor issue, please fix this in the final as you have like 50 bytes left and the fix is only about 20 bytes: just add "PeekMessage( &gMsg, 0, 0, 0, PM_REMOVE);" in your render loop.

With fractals, you need either great direction to make them interesting, or some new(ish) fractal people aren't so familiar with. This has both :)

More commenting: to me the first scene is the best. Showing the fractal unfolding was really cool. During the prizegiving, I felt the post-processing increased the aliasing artifacts.

Uploaded a Final version of "Hartverdrahtet" wich fixes the "mousecursor issue" wich was really annoying during the compo @Revision and also seems to make trouble on a couple of ATI cards. Thx to Seven/Fulcrum for pointing me in the right direction, and of course las/Mercury for providing a detailed solution.

Other than that I have added a couple of "HQ Super Sampling" versions to the archive wich render everything with 2x, 4x and 8xFSSS resulting in an absolute awesome visual quality. The downside of course is you probably have to buy a new GPU ... or two :)
Thanks for the journey!

You own the fractals, that's for sure. Beautifully put to use to create this masterpiece. Really an awesome achievement.

I love fractals and I love this 4k. I don't actually get the hate for fractals in the demo scene, it is pure coder nerd maths and I find the shapes to be quite beautiful and more interesting than primitive geometry. I respect people have a different opinion, but I personally can't get enough of this stuff.

This one is just fucking impressive. How does it comes i never thumb up that ?
Fractals raymarchers are common things in 1k/4k but this one is different. So deep, so beautiful. Anybody knows how the surrounding yellow/blue glow is made ?

I noticed this years ago already but never bothered to really bring it up, but in any case, any particular connection to this xm? The main melody seems to be lifted pretty straight from the third pattern onwards (different chords of course though). I don't really care though, it's a cool reinterpretation, but I would've expected a mention of it somewhere.

Super late thumb. This still rocks! Looking forward to your next demo miracle!
