This is great. Had to rank higher.

Great visuals and audio. To me, ranking this third place was a joke.

Not so sure on the color schemes and it feels a little bit too long, but otherwise it has its moments. Not spectacular, but nice.

Awesome what LJ can do in so little time. The transitions are more than great and the music fits just perfect.

Really liked the visuals. I would agree was a little too long and I did not feel for the tune, but the demo definitely left an impression. And the fact that it was a party prod is just pure amazing!

I just loved this intro! :)

Great stuff and runs super smooth!
I disagree with some of the color choices, though.

Great one! Partycoded ... even more awesome! 2nd in my book =)

As others said - how this is not 2nd or even 1st is really beyond believe.
The noisy fog and geometrical glowy lines sets some proper/unusual mood.

LJ: You keep delivering really nice stuff! :)

Triace: Normally i like your music, but this time i think the music didn´t fit the visuals at all, except for the first part! Well, it did fit...but not what i describe in the next paragraph, which would have fitted the visuals a lot more:

I want a remix of this with a different soundtrack...let it be psytrance or sth a bit slower maybe...add music-synced screenshakes and generally faster camera-pathes to it! A fast-paced trip through your scenes with fitting music and this would rule 200% more!

Thanks for the nice feedback so far, yesterday I finished the final which has less artifacts, a few more syncs and includes executables for different resolutions. Capture is in the works aswell.

hardy: That may be due to the fact that triace did the music having only seen the first scenes while being on a tight time budget, this prod was mostly done during the party which is a shame really, but hey never say never to a potential remix / directors cut or a V2 :)
added on the 2016-10-05 10:48:44 by LJ LJ
Having thought a bit about it...my new advice would be to keep this prod as is...and just make a new intro with these techniques, similar scenes and a fast-paced soundtrack...so new prod, simple as that...no need for a remix!
Hehe, yep, the time budget was quite tight (jumped on the project on thursday evening with the goal of "do something dark ambientish in 4:30"). So yeah, even though the track ain't perfect, I'm quite pleased with the outcome under the given circumstances.

@hardy: thanks for constructive criticism, I'm quite motivated to do something more beat-driven.

After what felt like ages of capture madness its finally captured :)

That kaleidoscope needs goa :) otherwise great stuff, dig the what I see, and great soundtrack, just somehow disconnected from the visuals.

The music isn't much my thing, but it's well done even with the time constraints. The visuals are excellent.

finally i come around to put a comment on this

im really a bit torn on both the visual and the audio side, some parts are really awesome and some seem generic 200x 4k-ish but given the fact that its mostly a party prod theres no reason to complain, really.

keep it up!

Music took it down a few notches, but the visuals are top dollar

Really nice. Getting *so* bored of ray marching so it's great to see something different in the 4k scene. More please!

wait, non-boring raymarching -- what is this, 2009?! assuming it is, but the artifacts suggest it should. either way, extremely cool stuff.

Very nice visual design let down a bit by the timid music and lack of interesting foreground objects in some scenes.

Thumb because the colours and kaleidoscope effects are awesome.

very calm effects and music
I REALLY love this wire-based structures.
Plus the overall mood & level of detail <3
