interesting rendering!, cool colors
mediocre music, too static scenes, too short
the filter used is a very interesting technique, although it could have been used with some more interesting scenes. overally i like it, the music suits the demo well. it was underrated at the party, compared to some prods that reached a better rank.

big lamer...the must part of this is precalculated (all the png in ur .dat)... all the demo could fit in a 64k...

This prod was done in a big hurry. The main idea was to do Hausner's decorative mosaic in motion. The algorithm is based on a centroidal voronoi diagram which is realy time consuming to compute even if HW acceleration is used. Unfortunatelly I have no idea how to do it in realtime without precalculations. However I think that it could be possible to do it in 64kB using pixel shader. So wait for Dirac final... :-)

It's not spectacular, but I enjoyed it for what it's worth.

Nice rendering effect! Short enough not to become boring.


now that spengler mentions it, the 6 megabytes of PNGs do look fishy.


Ah, there's an official statement to it from redox. OK, thumb up anyway. Was impressive to look at. However, i would think the mozaic could be compressed better, recording position and rotation change of the tiles, also allowing for interpolation at run-time?

Unconventional rendering that looks nice, but I wish it had more "meat" and some link with Paul Dirac as well... :)

nice idea, but 6MB .PNGs??

1 t.u. for the idea... but to my mind it is possible in real time :-) .... (a suivre)

How is this done then?? Cool rendering style and music was pretty cool too (except the drums). I didn't like the parts where they revealed the underlying polys fully that much(talk english yes), but rules overall

ok demo, i think i would have used some sort of a stencilbuffer to do that effect though. dont know if it would have been any faster.

great music and visuals(even if cheating)

generally good coded production with nice effects. Music sounds good, graphics looks good. Thumb up, nothing else to add.

Nice and crispy music, original rendering effect, short but great.

pretty cool
i dig this shader and the music aims high. a bit too short. still, thumb.
