Great graphics, even better soundtrack and sort of a follow-up (and improvement) to the Street Art demo. Great stuff!

Although it loses the first time brain exploding impact of Street Art, still lovely to see highcolor ST effects. Perhaps a little less impact then before, code-wise, but gains back on the theme and visuals.

Strange design, cool music, interesting blurs/glows.

Demo is absolutely not my cup of tea and looks way too messed up most of the time (so why beat this on Amiga? :D). However, DMA-SC's music is utterly fantastic! And the logos are cool too so the thumb goes up anyway. Mainly for the brilliant music though!

By the way, I've just tested it on Atari 520ST 4Mb - it works perfectly.
weird theme and horrible haikus, but it had some good scenes and pixel graphics in there.

more hicolour the better! nice to see a refinement! look forward to more developments! perhaps come classic fx done with this technique? I am thinking 3D balls!

interesting theme, really nice gfx and music :)

Regarding the music: what Stingray said. Maybe it was a long time since I heard a DMA-SC tune, but it was absolutely delightful!

The demo seems more fluent and coherent than street art so that's a good thing as well. The syncs and flashes worked really well on the big screen.

Enjoyed it!

Impressive graphics, and some out standing logos. I don't dig the message though, and the Standford dragon was completely out of place.

P.S.: the city in the earthquake image is not Hiroshima but Yokohama, as seen from the top of the Landmark Tower. :p

Almost exactly what Stingray said except that i didnt find dma sc's tune SO extraordinary. It is a very good tune but man.. some of the older ones by him are so damn best that maybe my bar for him is set too high :)

I think I will never come at peace with the noisy/dirty aspect of Spectrum images.

However this prod is nothing short of great!


I'd like to see you guys try to stick to one palette per scanline, a bit like what Dune does/did recently. Yes, you'd get less colors in total but the effects and images would be super clean: Bye bye ugly Spectrum smudge and noise. Hello razor sharp details.

Nice colorfull demo on Atari STE and very cool colaboration, more graphisms and then more colors ;)

...but the funny thing is, it worx normally on a regular ST. ;)
Awesome! :D

Some nice refraction and normal map type effects. I like the music but not the use of photos or the scene poetry. The rolling fades on the photos were cool, though.

There were too many colours.
great logos!

Beautiful color effects ! Original prods ! Many truth in it also ! Good work guys !

excellent! p01 points out, where the "new" limitations of the machine can be pushed!

I don't think the ham-fisted poetry/story was really needed, as the effects are good enough to stand on their own. Really good work with the blur and bump (?) routines, it's really cool to see that on a ST :)
You should use the blur technique to make a camera focus change effect in the next demo.
I wish the transitions could be more subtle and on some pictures the "dirty" look due to the limitations of the Spectrum technique is a bit too strong, but that's minor. Good work!

Thx for all your comments, it always helps to improve. I am already working on the next and I hope better demo.
I don't use the spectrum algorithm but a fully handmade, especially when spectrum displays 48 colors in 320 pixels, mine can display 48 for only 192 pixels.
The complexity when cross-fading 2 pictures (blurs, logo are also crossfades FX) is beyond the complexity of solving a simple picture : exactly the square, going from millions to millions of millions of possible combinations. I was myself surprise with the quite good quality.

No pixels are moving in this demo, there is no C2P and no chunk technic, every effect is "just" made of rasters & palettes cycling with fixed pixels.
It was fun to imagine how classic FX using pixels could work in this way with the color improvement for free.
The "hicolor" display is using 65-75% of the CPU time at every frame, music about 5-10%, 20-25% remains for the calculations.
Most effects are running at 50hz/1 vbl except the phong (lotus flower & girl in leather).

Wondering what this technic would looks on Amiga with the 32 colors and the copper improvements...
tune and logos

I'm wondering what an STE could do with this technique :-)

What! only third? Dead-heat with DHS for me! :)
The graphs are very beautiful and some effects are truly amazing !
The hicolor is very refreshing!
rulez added on the 2012-07-18 02:40:14 by Templeton Templeton
Hicolor on ST!
A way better than those flickering and static Spectrum pictures.

(so bad there are black pixels spoiling the pictures on my STE and Mega STE, maybe due to STE hardware - the video on DHS web site is so clean)

Another prod with wow factor with a great forward pushing soundtrack. The demo feels a bit generic after the first demo though (not so many obvious "effects"), however, these graphics on ST - my goodness!

The code is great but design and graphics look ugly to me. Nice music though.
