It reminds me of Medium from Einklang.
mfx definitely lack of inspiration this time. That's the reason why they only came 2nd.
Well the demo is well executed but i can't feel any vibes.

Very good! Visuals are fantastic, music is so-soish but on the big screen the show must have been incredible.

Really nice and shiny. A bit long.
rulezadded on the 2002-12-15 18:36:19 by Shifter Shifter
It started out nice.. Interesting rendering technique... I was thinking "Variform meets 32 Degrees In The Shade".
But after a while it became obvious that this was the ONLY thing in the demo, and it started getting boring quickly. The music was horribly bland and repetitive aswell. Probably won't watch it again.

Another "winamp-plugin" kinda demo that gets boring after the first 30 seconds.
sucksadded on the 2002-12-15 18:49:19 by Wain Wain
Medium by Einklang meets Autechre GantzGraf DVD.
fast-paced and shiny all over, but somehow it doesn't entirely work right (I'm not talking technical issues here, it's the groove that's missing).. furthermore, ir really smells of winamp-plugins a bit..
to sum it up - a pig is in order for you today, mr. unkle-x 8))

how can a demo be too long ?

admit you don't like it and you were about to press escape .. then it's your taste and not the demo which is too long.

making a long demo is imho quite hard.

respect to mfx and kewlers who made their recent demos last over the 6 minutes bar (variform, a fire upon the deep & this one).

very atmospheric abstract effects.. music is done well for its style even if it's not my thang.. good syncing.. lack of anything resembling a framerate actually enhances the effect a bit..

I won't rate it as a demo, it's just an effect that should be about 30 seconds of a real demo, however that effect is fantastic... really great.
still not a demo though.

rulezadded on the 2002-12-16 08:07:36 by Panda Panda
To experience what this demo is really about you need:

1) A fast computer (gf3/4 preferred)
2) A big screen
3) Massive soundsystem

For those who don't have any of the three elements above available wait for a final & high quality release as divx which Droid promised to release so also the people without sufficient hardware can watch it properly.
rulezadded on the 2002-12-16 10:02:40 by melw melw
wtf should a divx fix about a nonexisting bigscreen and sound system? :)
i'm gonna watch it on a regular 19" now. with headphones.
added on the 2002-12-16 10:23:19 by shiva shiva
shiva, it helps with the point 1) - as i don't think majority of the people have gf3/4 but just about anyone should be able to play video files.

nevertheless you should still get the big screen and sound system :)
added on the 2002-12-16 10:30:50 by melw melw
sound system certainly helps

rulezadded on the 2002-12-16 10:35:06 by shiva shiva
well the rendered stuff is really nice actually, but imho it just takes too long and eventually gets boring as a demo. perfect vj material tho.

Its a one effect demo, but not boring at all: i could not blink my eyes when watching it !

It's a gem of hardware demos: when i see this super-complex object/effect, i think secretly: maybee one day, i will code an hardware demo too :o)

A big thumb up for the coder. Even today, a pure coder's demo can compete against the very graphist-dependent demo trend.

It looks a littke bit like einklang.net-prods,
the effects and syncs are very good, giving
it with the music a cool kind of flow.
rulezadded on the 2002-12-16 13:47:32 by reaktor2k reaktor2k
Very impressive trippy demo. excellent ryhtm.
remind me of einklang.net's medium which is one of my prefered ones.
Mfx unlike some other quality CP winning groups try to innovate in each demo they realize. I have to congratulate them for their efforts.
rulezadded on the 2002-12-16 13:53:54 by neurox neurox
visuals : FANTASTIC
design : booooooring because of the music
format : as an intro it would be very good, as a demo it's not.
30 seconds of this noize are enough, only renderign keep my eyes on the screen (not very true, during the show we was a lot to go to the toilets).
Doesn't really like my GFX card (as in it doesn't run and I suspect that's the reason), but the music I got to hear before the crash sounded quite different from what I expected. Have to try it on some other computer when I get the chance.
added on the 2002-12-16 15:14:54 by DiamonDie DiamonDie
music is not really good, demo is not neither.
in fact, this demo would be good in an effect category. a 6 minutes effect is not a demo... its borring
btw nice effect

Well, I don't know how this demo will be the second (o third etc.) time I watch, but the first impression was just INCREDIBLE!
The rendering of that single effect is awesome, and the synching is great.
I normally like more 'traditional' demos, but this one totally rocked.
Will be interesting to see what I think of it after watching it a couple of times..

This is good techno. Really good. You only have to like that sort of music to understand how good it is.

The effect is 'medium' meets 'variform' in my eyes and it's awesome. Although I also felt the demo lasts rather long.

As club VJ footage, rules. As a demo, sucks. (you've seen/heard it all after 10 seconds) So, a piggy. It's a killer MP3 plugin. :)
added on the 2002-12-17 02:29:15 by phoenix phoenix
just to make sure i had followed the "mp rules", i used the following to watch this demo:

- Athlon XP 1700+
- GF4 Ti4600
- 1600 ANSI Lumen Projector opening a 4x4mt screen
- 8 JBL Control 28 speakers connected to two 600watts Ecler amplifiers (on a 50 sqmt room)

After that, I ran it on my monitor with small Logitech speakers, and guess what, the impression is the same: nice effect, but boring after 1 minute. Gets a pigface for the nice "crystal blurring" effect

(tip: if you got a logitech keyboard with thsoe multimedia keys and its drivers installed, try to change the volume while on the demo, you'll get the blurring effect on the volume bar too, hehe :D)

you seem to pay a lot of attention to my wording, superplek ;) well, it's certainly techno, and goa's a variation of techno, so i can't be too far off. not trying to imply i'm an expert (i'm not). what style do you think it is then?

yeah ofcourse its techno demo and damn good one!

great abstract visuals and they change a lot too.. demo IS envolving all the way - really great and so rare! no way it is too long i even didnt notice it was 6 mins as people say here..

cant recognise anything like goa there if only number of bpm, though i must admit i didnt like tune as much.. was really too basic, didnt have any weak points etc but somehow i didnt get this techno feeling of repeating melodies and slight disharmony inbetween making really abstract sound you have got many entry and destination points making up an abstract and hypnotic trip .. i really dig techno being a huge fan for over 10 years but this one is not my pick

muzik doesnt ruin an overall great experience tho, not at all, it just stays background

High quality dix version - Note! it's ~250Mb big, this kind of stuff doesn't pack very well with traditional video formats so we had to use very high bitrate to encode it. Sorry, modem/isdn users. :) Anyways now at least people without high end graphics cards can enjoy watching the demo...

Wow! The screenshots are really nice, worth waiting for the 1.5 MB downloading time. I like them more than the demo itself. Maybe it's because the screenshot page doesn't have the epileptic-seizure-causing flashing and the boring music. Thumb up for the visuals, thumb down for the music. So pig face for the total audio visual experience.

very medium indeed (with a touch of variform).
and similar to the einklang.net demo the sound prevents this from being a true classic. not that the track itself is bad but you really have to like this kind of techno style. which i don´t.
anyway. the visuals where the most stylish since... well - yes - since medium. so .big. thumbs up for this production.

The music was simply GREAT. I haven't heard such an asskicking tune in a demo since Amoeba. The visuals are neat too, but more variation would've been nice. Anyway, this is good shit. Go Finland! :)

music rocks (Millssi.mp3 - Jeff Mills inspired??)
smashing and excellent.

The avi version was very VERY good.
Also nice what that special dutch cake ;)

Now here is a demo for the MTV generation. The demo looks nice, but it gets boring quick and is epileptic. Every shot lasts a maximum of one second each.

But the music definitely rocked. LB knows how to make music. I need to hear more of this guy.

Only thing I would change is the music - drop the repeating snare for a simple bumbuimbum techno beat, keep the breaks in, would give it that extra inch of steel.

EXCELLENT demo!...excellent design and excellent code...a lot of stretching cubes, laser-beams and flashes driven by mathematical paths in a psychedelic way! (everything is synchronized with the music beats...features a VERY very interesting rendering-style...very innovative IMHO...stop thinking of demos as a slideshow of 3d-scenes and effects...this demo is definitely a piece of digital-art

I didn't really like the "music", although the effect itself looks really cool. If the music were better, and the effect not stretched out as much, this would really have been a killer demo.

Sceners have Attention deficit dammit, don't make demos this stretched out =)
