Nice mood. Something different.

Coderwise it's great and it looks great too (though too slow even in my GTS450, no lower resolution options?)

Really nice visuals and fitting sound - however it is running VERY slow, and the effect could need a small twist/change.

horribly slow (as in - interactive framerates) on GTX 580. From the code - this a quite brute force approach ;)

really nice. as most people run really slow on my comp. does it run well on some baddass gfx card like 680 GTX ? (or maybe it's just cpu heavy ?)

A low framerate on my pc but my pc is old so thats ok.

It runs great on a GTX 680 / 580

doesnt seem the run here (win7x64/nv gtx 260), endless precalc.
was a beauty on the stream, tho!

nice clouds..
but no real winner 4k in my eyes.

Looks great, low framerate on 560/2600K

Can not confirm for 580. I mean - horribly slow might a bit exaggerated - but it's well below 30 fps here.

nice clouds indeed, but that's all... It's repetitive/boring, and the music is just bad compared to nowadays pc 4k standards.

Looks unfinished. Too short, no climax or proper ending. Final version, maybe? But yeah, nice clouds.

beautiful visuals, like these clouds... but why ruining it with a bumbum basedrum? mehface but still, thumb up.

Has a rushed feel, but the clouds look great.

9 fps on a gtx570 (and more or less the same speed on 7870) means it's not running great on a 580 either.
Looked great on the stream, blurring out the dither/noise, but should have had more variation in the clouds (ie more open areas etc).
But with that speed realtime, and very much single scene flyby, it's a meh.

Looked very good on the big screen, good fx.

A bit more variation would have made it excellent. Still, congrats for a great 4k!

Beautiful effect. Just remove that gabber-ish basedrum from the audiotrack.
rulez added on the 2012-08-06 17:51:15 by CONS CONS
beautiful effect, beautiful music, will watch again

ok'ish framerate on gtx670. i wouldn't mind even a slower rate, because it suits the effect nicely
24 fps movies have won oscars, how is that possible

I didn't like the frameskip, but this was still really impressive.

The idea is cool, but execution leaves a little more to wish for. The music isn't that good either, so while this is definately a great 4k achievement, it's just not something that knocked my socks off. Still enough for a thumb up, though ;)

Visually enticing and the music and the visuals work well together. The melody reminds me a bit of the Moomins cartoons, and that's a compliment :)

It's amazing clouds and almost 3D photorealist!! :D

@guys: CALM! You aren't worried! And I also not. -> It's normal that performance is slow because the ray-tracing is HEAVY - such as NVIDIA Optix samples, "Design Garage Ray Tracing", Octane Render... ;)
My GeForce GTX 480 got only 11 fps@99% GPU usage without VSYNC running XP x86 SP3 and 285.58WHQL (HQ). ;)


Download video here - 1280x720 at 60fps

instructions before play this video:
1. change vertical frequency from preferred to 60 Hz on LCD monitor/TV or CRT monitor-PC but CRT monitor-PC is recommended for no motion blur.
2. must enable VSYNC or not force to disable VSYNC for eliminate screen tearing
3. run VLC Media Player (very good program) or WMP or other player and watch finally - get pure smooth motion!! Enjoy! :D

Choppy on my old Windows XP Pro. SP3 with an ATI Radeon 4870 video card (512 MB PCie). :( It was OK after viewing it on my computer and YouTube.

At some point clouds start feeling reeeeally artificial due to the dithering. Wouldn't watch twice.
