didn't like it THAT much, the music+speechsynth wasn't really that appealing, altho i liked some of the effects. the sync was a bit overcooked.

I liked the on off thing at the start.. The colours are kind of cool too. The synch is very annoying.. especially the text overlays jerking back and forth.. Sometimes the background and foreground effects fight for your attention. Maybe it would be an idea to tone down the backgrounds a little bit. Kill all basedrum callbacks ;)

Theres quite a bit of stuff in here. Is that head a highpoly mesh or is it some bezier patch object (or something).

didn't work under winME - looped at first scene
under win2k worked ok.
music is toooooo noisy
seems that tAAt's and your speechsynths visit the same logopedist :P
meshes are cool especially for upx-60k
sync is really annoying
anyway, good work

i like it alot, especially visuals, but music is quite good too! one of those productions which definetly are my style.
rulez added on the 2004-07-24 14:21:58 by shadez shadez
solid style!

this was daaarn cool. :) excellent composition (though loaderror has a point about the crowded scenes), clever new ideas (yeah, how 'bout that!), good music and colors. love it.

I don't really fancy the style at all. I don't mind the sync, the visuals just don't appeal to me. I liked the font though and the music was decent. The symbol images were probably not needed.

The Visuals are great!

Quite cool but a bit too hectic sync.

Couldnt say this was average but it didnt catch my complete attention. The voices were nice though. Next time chose a non capitalist theme and refine your synching and it will be fine with me :)

Somehow this didn't impress me. It's not bad, and I like the code, and I like some of the effects.. but it's just lacking the special something.

Also, when I pressed ESC, it restarted, which is kind of strange.
added on the 2004-07-24 18:47:02 by Preacher Preacher
thumb it for no money.
just for the 3d objects being great.
rulez added on the 2004-07-24 19:01:25 by mizc mizc
not fan but gj
thumb-up for the nice shiny textures and some nicely distorted objects... i find the texts to be rather corny and more like "we need a theme!" than giving any kind of message. They ended up being damned annoying :) also, a few of the effects are shown a bit too long. the music rocks :)

i like it! the design is consistent, there are a couple of new things in there, and - oddly - I _really_ like those subdivided cubes you can see on the screenshot.
rulez added on the 2004-07-26 00:38:49 by farfar farfar
I like the shiny models. And it has a clear design them. (Although I'm not sure how the typography fits with the visuals.) A good, solid production.

I dunno. I didn't have any problem reading the text or with the length, but I didn't see anything terribly new... just very polished.
Well worth my while. There's my $0.02

really nice. although normally cheesy, with this concept, the text was rather good !

A very 'Kapitalist style' demo.

people are complaining about the sync.. but i'm still not convinced that its not bugging on my system. Everything jumps and skips like a scratched cd, the tune, text, visuals, all together. And not in time to the beat too... almost random. I couldn't hear the speech synth at all.

So... bug or insane random sync effect???

The glow effect and the overall golden look are very nice, however I find some abuse of the "static camera+object-synched-to-the-beat for many seconds" scheme.

Decent. Nothing spectacular, nothing that sticks in your mind. I see no reason to watch it again..
added on the 2004-09-21 10:45:30 by Preacher Preacher
quite nice, but not that great, that I would watch it many times. A bit boring at some places. Music rocks though.

The best 64k I've seen in a long while. Shiny and entertaining. Extra thumbs up for the kewl oscilloscope fx. :)

The volumetric glow thingy looked a bit odd on my machine though. Perhaps it didn't like my r9800pro, or I just didn't get the design..

Thumbs up for the good look the hectical textsync is a little bit ugly. but overall a good prod ;-)

You can ALWAYS buy happiness with money, but dudes this intro is unpayable!

simply ROCKS!

the best geometric realtime effects I've ever seen in ages, and not only one, all the demo it's full of them!!!
A bit more effort on transitions between scenes would be fine, but hey! this demo deserves a coup de coeur why not?

Is this "the" trendsetter? :) At least this type of fleshing out single effect demos with random icons (recently, memes or meme gfx) and word salads in place of imagination has been copied a lot since ;)

In this case, the effects were more than one & good for its time, and the content wasn't that unimaginative. A well-made 64k from 2k4.
