Great atmosphere!

That's really nice. One of the most interesting uses of fractals I've seen in a while. The music really suited it too. Great stuff.

nice!

I like the fractal part and I like the music (but it sounds a bit too much like 5 years ago 4ks)

found the gfx to be a bit too unpolished and smudgy to thumb this.. nice effort, tho

With better sound and colors / shading could be really really good.

I found it kind of dull. The colours need work and the music was a bit of a plod.

lovely fractal surfaces and decent music. but the last scene was kind of really unnecessary and won't fit at all. feels like it's there only to stretch the intro. sorry, but piggie :\
Beautiful!

and it burns burns burns, that ball of fire... very nicely done surfaces and beams :)

What a great 4k, really fitting tune and visuals.

Rather good for such a fractal overload but it's missing something.

This could have been EPIC with less coder colors and a music à la cdak or the psychedelic part in 2001 A SPACE ODISSEY

what chock said.

+ I see only some spheres - are you seriously cone marching those? What about directly raytracing those few spheres?
added on the 2012-07-12 11:37:25 by las las
Las: it's just part of my normal 4K framework. I had some other scenes in mind, but went with spheres only, and didn't bother to take out the cone marching. I didn't even think about the possibility to calculate the intersections in one go, that would probably provide a decent speedup...

The intro was made in a hurry, to support Rewired with a remote entry, as I unfortunately already had a family trip (without internet) planned on that date. So I had to submit it several days in advance. Add the Rewired invitro 4K we made three weeks ago, and the tentative next one for Some Big Party in another 3 weeks, and I really couldn't justify spending more time on it. Most time went in trying new (for me) stuff, such as postprocessing, and improving our primitive 4K tool. I noticed yesterday I forgot to take out the font-loading code from Schtrombloxke, so it could have been another 55 bytes smaller :)

In the end, it did better than expected at the party, so I'm glad I made it, even though it's far from perfect.

Great atmosphere!
Works well here: tested on NV GTS450, winXP 32b. I chose to run the 1024x768 version, without changing the display resolution (1280x1024). It matches the youtube version.

Not bad enough for a thumb down but these colors... Man oh man.

okayish, but not terribly interesting. It looks the best from around 1:00.

I like the concept and some of the fractal effects are cool. There are couple of good things, this is promising, but it really lacks polishing. Static cameras and static backgrounds make the demo boring (also try adding sync). I like the music, although the instruments are quite poor. Oh, and please fix the colors!
Motivational thumb, because I'm sure you could do something much better with a bit more work.

I liked that sun a lot, also the fractals on the surface worked well.
rulez added on the 2012-07-13 19:23:57 by Daddy Freddy Daddy Freddy
Really nice idea! I just would have wished better colors for the fractals

nice music! it give some "soul" to your 4k :)

for the rest, what LLB said!

I like it.

i like it too. last part was best, also colour-wise.
you should not place the planets/objects at the perfect center of the screen, that looks unnaturally.

Pretty cool. Many of those who thumbed down wouldn't be able to do better so please, shut up.

fractals on spheres... interesting
rulez added on the 2012-07-30 04:21:43 by praetor_alpha praetor_alpha
simple, but rocks. one technical question : is it only made using shaders + one quad (raymarching) or it traditional polygons ?

Coder colors , but the fractals on sphere are really nice
