very nice.
i guess, we have a first breakthrough perfomance nominee.

and, also, pity that it wasn't in democompo. it would easily won.

very nice - despite the hardcore obfuscated shaders - trying to hide something? :D

Very awesome 64k. You guys obviously know what you are doing! Very polished, no visual artefacts, good choice of colours, professional looking postproc effects.

Especially impressive as a first release.

PLEASE include a resolution selector next time. Running this at 5 fps wasn't fun.

i didn't like the "puls" scenes too much(except for the one with the gears), the rest was awesome, including the soundtrack. also what urs said.

welcome to the raymarchers!

Great 64k by itself.

Also, awesome first prod.

Gratz!

the intro looks pretty self-contained and the music is excellent. i like the bass.

a bit too raymarchy, sounds a bit too 64k, but it's great to see that there were people who really put all their ideas and effort into something.
rulez added on the 2012-09-03 12:09:01 by Gargaj Gargaj
First of not, this vas VERY nice! Enjoyed the processing fx, colours and sync. Not too short but not boring either. Liked the music too, even though it featured the "Beatport compressed white noise sweep" thing to which I'm severely allergic ;)
rulez added on the 2012-09-03 12:09:06 by break break
Not too raymarchy for me at all. Loved it from start to finish, I only wished that the scenes were a bit more connected to each other. And why the hell didn't the recursive diamond like things also have an infinite zoom? :)
rulez added on the 2012-09-03 12:16:11 by Preacher Preacher
This was VERY nice. Especially for a firsty. Looking forward to your next production.

I dig the classic 64k approach, with fx parts. Too many today are only procedural content factory fly-bys.

can has version with resolution selector please?
added on the 2012-09-03 14:22:02 by Gargaj Gargaj
Thanks for all the feedback, we really appreciate it.

Concerning the resolution selector, there actually are hidden video mode selection options on the command line: -360p / -720p / -1080p and -w for window mode. We will make sure to add a mode selector for our next production.
rulez added on the 2012-09-03 14:36:10 by westlicht westlicht
westlicht: that's great except the -360p version runs in 640x480 but renders in 360p so the desktop is visible - i'd really like to show this intro this weekend at a demoshow but our beamer only goes up to 1024x768, any chance you could support e.g. 4:3 modes? :)

rulez added on the 2012-09-03 14:53:51 by moqui moqui
alternatively, 480p/576p could be nice :D
added on the 2012-09-03 14:53:56 by Gargaj Gargaj
Gargaj: What an honour :) I'll see what I can do, adding a mode selection window might be a good investment for future productions anyway, otherwise I'll do a custom build for you using the 1024x768 resolution ...
added on the 2012-09-03 14:55:05 by westlicht westlicht
w00t! A new player enter the game of 64k intros!
And it's a newcomer!

I totally liked this really nice intro, all effects looks very good (and you know how I love gears!), the music add a very cool "chillin'" mood :)

Also, thank you a lot for the greetings :D

OSX version? Hand it over! Just watched the youtube port, and unfortunately youtube just isn't powerful to handle this many small gears at once.

Kick-ass 64k anyway. And I'm saying that without taking the fact that it's a firstie into account :)

This was actually quite pleasant! - though the color scheme hurt a bit :) A little shorter and less raymaching-feeling would have been nice.

A sincere and big "yes" to Horology! Many visual details simultaneously can confuse, but as they are made from simple basis objects, it works in your prod. And as Gargaj says you definitely put the hours in. Bravo :D.

Some scenes are excellent, some other are a bit dull. I think you should have made the demo a bit shorter, and cut the stuff that's less good. For example the beginning is a bit boring (first 40 sec). Sound is a bit too 64k.
But overall, this is a very good work, with a nice attention to details, correct transitions, great sync, and good rendering. I'm looking forward to seeing your next prods!

Good demo. There are a few unexpected performance drops (particularly in the cog ball zoomer scene) and most of the the content looks somewhat dated compared to certain modern stuff, but you bet most other groups would want to have a first prod like this.

Not my cup of tea, though I am not completely certain why. I think it was mostly the sound department - the soundtrack just didn't work for me. The visuals are very nice, albeit they did feel a bit jumbled. All in all, a good start .. so a motivational thumb it is :D

Excellent. The only bad thing I can think of is that the cog spheres around 1:20 don't advance one tooth every beat - that'd be oh so much more satisfying

This is *exactly* how a good intro should look like, at least in my book. Good soundtrack, very nice graphics, and even though the concept is anything but new, there are still some nice twists to it.

Too much scanlines but this is really impressive. Gotta love the DOF & motion blur.

Awesome stuff - but I get an error message -
"The NVIDIA OpenGL driver lost connection with the display driver due to exceeding the Windows Time-Out limit and is unable to continue."

Displays for a few seconds and then the crash!

Pretty crazy to drop this quality as a first release. Whatever happened to these guys?

With the last scene the only exception, I totally love all of this. Awesome tune, great sync, impressive visuals!

I really wish you'd do more demos. :-)

Did anyone notice how much the scene with the gears arranged in a sphere and its zoom in looks like the zoom in scene in rove ?
