blew me away on the stream! One of the best 4k!

Utterly floored me. Close to perfection in how a 4k intro should be executed. Seriously raises the bar to me personally.

This was very fun to watch. Quite well done, and definitely the music was great, again. Another good soundtrack from Virgill. Fizzer did well on the visuals, too.

Awesome - really good looking and nice buildup/pacing.
Definitely top 3 for me - in a compo that just has "too much" top 3 material :D

So much above the rest. It should have won...with ease.
It is a great example why it doesn't pay off to do something more ambitious for the drunk audience.
I just hope authors don't care about the competition part and will simply give a f-k and don't go for cheap, crowd pleasing bullshit next time. Keep it real, guys!

I love it to bits.

Well, I mean, it's not perfect, but few things are or need to be. This is both technically and aesthetically one of the most impressive things to come from the scene for me.

Also the Roland JP-8000 like sounds really hit the spot for me in particular. Virgill you're so stupidly talented.

Great design. Those scenes looked amazing. Very nice choice of colors and geometry. Too bad it's a bit short. Loved the music as well, really fits the visuals.

Wow, how confident do you have to be to do something that is THIS glacial in pace? I don't wanna namedrop Kubrick but I think it's inevitable at this point.

Black screen on r9 290 (though the shader compiles fine).
And while at it you should probably fix the beforementioned slow light propagation (i guess it's better to update the whole buffer per frame and have a bit lower fps than fuck up the direction).
Still, for a production this great I can't hold back my thumb until it's fixed :)
rulez added on the 2017-04-18 23:13:30 by Psycho Psycho
Been seeing this since the earlier stages and i need to admit that the end result is stunning, specially the aesthetic department, however, I need to agree with Gargaj that the pacing was slow.t really enjoyable nontheless.

Compo favorite for me. What a beauty. And with lush and intense music to set the mood.

The nice atmosphere in the last scene was a bit ruined by the text overlay, though.

rulez added on the 2017-04-23 04:21:37 by slack slack
very skilled work.. music is a soundtrack in 4k.. and that scene with a pilalr when camera moves up make this intro looks like a demo... and of course text in glsl 4k intro - I remember how people were screaming during the compo when they saw the text in 4k ;))) (just check all other entries for any text in 4k)

so this one is much better then all the rest in the compo(and even the best one at all)

this one and noby's are my favorites both are awesome...

thumb of course

not digging that 1950s sci-fi style you got going here, but here's my thumb for ace direction, flawless technical execution, the track and the bundle as a whole. Only nitpick is that crude text rendering, should've used the bytes elsewhere imho.
rulez added on the 2017-04-24 23:23:42 by LJ LJ
My personal WINNER! (with the real winner on 3rd and that sphere-raytracer on 2nd)
This is exactly how 4Ks should be like...multi-part, splendid-looking/-sounding and even some theme.
rulez added on the 2017-04-25 16:32:09 by ɧคɾɗվ. ɧคɾɗվ.
Totally digging that 190 scifi style, and the way Virgill makes his soundtracks sound absolutely unlike 4k is slowly starting to scare me. :)

Fabtaqstic, epic work, and yes, it takes balls to go so slow, but it paid off very well. What LJ said about the text rendering tho.

This 4k is epic on so many levels, that one simply has to bow down in deep respect. The rendering is fantastic for the size, the flow through it all is bold yet perfectly suitable for the content. The way it gradually builds from one high to an even higher all the time is amazing and really, really rare for 4k's. And then there's the soundtrack ... Oh man those instruments! Beautifully made to fit each other, composition fits the theme of the intro and the overblown flute just got elevated to breathtaking new hights for this prod. I simply can't believe how on earth you manage to squeeze these sounds out of 4klang - especially when you compare to other 4klang tracks. This was my favorite of the compo by far!

On a side note - I wish the control room-scene in our 64k had been as awesome looking as the one you managed to pull off in a 4k ;) Fantastic work, fizzer!
