Best camerawork ever in a 4k ;-)

Technically I didn't really spot anything terribly innovative; same stuff that has permeated 4ks since ca. 2009, but just really tastefully designed and parametrized. And really that's the key how to make something good. It's not the technical flagellation you can show off, but what you make out of it. Obviously though the visuals come at the expense of the music, but that's fine since it still reaches a nice balance. IMO this is pretty much the end game when it comes to ray marched fractals. Just perfect, thank you for creating this.

Doesn't run on my AMD though.

great stuff, even if I prefer when there are couple of more bytes for the audio ;)

What noby said. This was really awesome.

Kicks hard. Simple material and simple but clean and sexy renderer gives rise to loads of content, camera and direction. Agree with noby about the endgame of this style... Completely achieves its ambition. Just perfect implementation indeed.

damn after the first scene and that great sound it starts with i expected something outstanding. but then nothing happened. it's not bad by any means and it has some nice scenes but there are better 4ks out there. so i roll wiff ze pigg
Nice 4k!

Just great!. Yes, music is a little thin, but you managed to squeeze some serious sick sounds out of clinkster. Big tumb!

Great to see Fairlight got a new coder to!

Small detail: I like the typical FLT logo sfx at the very end btw.. nice touch!

Bit too boring and slow for my taste.
The first scene blew me away on the stream ... the rest is pretty much generic raymarched fractals, but for 4K it didn't really need anything else after that first one, so still a big thumbs up
rulez added on the 2017-07-16 23:18:57 by juice juice
I feel the same as sensenstahl, I was expecting something else, the end is way too sudden. Still quite awesome, it's a thumbs up for me!

very nice atmosphere with the visuals, not much movement but there didn't need to be, the good camera placement and panning did the rest.

not convinced about the audio part (in fact it ruinbs the experience a bit), nice font and overall design however.

I was really impressed when I saw that this was only 4 KB. The line of statues in the first shot is pure genius. Looks very believable if you squint a bit :) And the landscapes: somehow the foggy look and carefully picked camera angles make the fractals look natural and not CGI at all.

Great work.
rulez added on the 2017-07-17 21:28:02 by cce cce
Looks good (well, minus the aliasing), just too bad there's not a lot going on, including the audio. Still, a very thumb-uppable 4k :)

Yeah almost. I second (or third) people who note the initial scene and that not going anywhere. It's very technically impressive but overall not particularly exciting. If I were at a party, I would give high props for the former and the sheer ...--ness of being there with it on the big screen but here, afterwards, that alone is just not engaging.
Fabulous scene composition, considering that this is (apparently) just a bunch of fractals. Really good example of getting a lot out of very little, which is what 4k intros are all about. :)
rulez added on the 2017-07-17 23:33:27 by Blueberry Blueberry
Lots of great stuff in here:
+ The early scene where some of the pillars look like some robot overlords looking over their city.
+ The city
+ The spaceship
+ The technopatterns
+ The text (this makes it more complete)
+ Colors

Music fits, but a little forced/staccato I think. Nowadays we have such awesome graphics fractals. Maybe what we need more of is music fractals? Especially for such ambient pieces it may be possible.
rulez added on the 2017-07-18 11:57:38 by rloaderro rloaderro
Now that's some style in 4k. Music could be improved though.

Wow! Really didn't expect this much positive feedback. I don't really know what to say. Thank you, everyone! :)

AMD(and possibly useful for future Intel)-GPU fix is coming. I accidentally forgot an old experiment with the shader compilation that is Nvidia-only. The fixed version is even smaller, so it was not there for any purpose. The shader itself was run trough Khronos reference compiler with each build, so I assume it works now without the Nvidia-extension. Will be tested and included in the final.

Regarding the aliasing. Yes, AA was considered but we had to rush it the week before the party and we only had one computer that could barely run the 720p version. During this time I increased the shadow sampling quite a lot and just crossed my fingers it would work on a high end GPU. So I didn't dare to do AA. It may be possible to include AA-versions of the final as there is a bit of size optimization left that can be done.

And just to clarify, it is the same fractal with different parameters ;)
Just do an offline render with like 64x supersampling :)

Wonderful, wonderful visuals. The rendering looks really nice and I love the color choise - particularly the red parts that sort of "breaks" repeating a bit. Great work with cameras and the spaceship. Looked gorgeous as it flew over and the shadow was cast!

The audio, is a bit of a different story. I guess it must be due to the size required for the visuals. I might be wrong, but to me it sounded like a slightly changed default instrument of clinkster, a slightly changed wave-ish sound from the Loonies U-boat and a pitch-decay'ed version of the first instrument. I might be wrong about the instruments, though. It's a really, really tough balance between boring/small and interesting/large and in my opinion, this one tipped a bit too much to the boring/small side.

That said, there's so much right about this 4k, and I know how corners has to be cut when deadline aproaches :) So massive thumbs up for your efforts and for this wonderful piece of eye-candy.

rulez added on the 2017-07-18 23:54:38 by Buckethead Buckethead
visually it's one ofthe most fantastic thing i've seen in 4ks.. but the music ruins it :(

if you have a few bytes left for music, you should rather use some 1-tone drone / dark ambient (actually it would have went together with the visuals amazingly)

i give it a piggy with bleeding heart

Sad to hear you guys/girls don't enjoy the music. I was (trying) to go for something dystopian-with-some-hope trailer-esque thingie. Also first time working with RNS+Clinkster, but I will try to do better next time. Thanks for all the votes still :)

It was OK. It crashed when launching it in my very old, updated 64-bit W7 HPE SP1 box with its 6 GB of RAM and ATI Radeon 4870 video card (512 MB of VRAM).

Now there is a fixed version up that should run on all GPUs, it should also run slightly faster than before. Also HQ-versions with AA. Good luck running those! (All versions are still under 4k)
Certainly interesting enough visuals for a 4K thumb!

scene.org archive contents does not yet reflect scene.org archive preview. I.e. no hq version for me. But I solved it. Cheers :)

This is basically the inverse of Equilibrium - it has awesome visuals but uninteresting music.

Also proves that you can do the same old fractals over and over again and keep them interesting.

I wonder if the intro wouldn't have more impact if the order of the different parts was reversed.

Not for me, I've seen it before, just in different parts of fractalspace and maybe a different colorscheme. Popular moments were the cityish scene at 0:35 and the flyover at 1:30. Music is not bad.
