Precalc took about 10 minutes I thinki, but DAMNED this is insane!

This is slow to precalc, buggy at times, music quality is abysmal. But this is really insane.

An attempt at analysis: the textures are easily generated. The models are pretty smooth; must be subdivs (hence compressible a lot). The animations are "rotate". The music is...

So why not 64k... But even then, this is insane :)

First of all - I didn't know anything about this. I received a mail yesterday at about 3:00 in the morning with this little intro. I was really shocked and touched :). After a while I started to think - How you guys did it? debevec's RGBE textures looks similar/ camera movements are (almost ???) the same. But the most interesting part - SH lighting coefficients are also there!! So I know why it took 4 minutes on my Athlon 3000 and ATI X850 to calculate :). I'm really really impressed. If You'll tell me that You calculated SH coeffs without using ATI_texture_float - then I'm even more impressed.

Here it is: "zbVj[kmesw" - You'll need it to finish the final - it's a password to final version's dat (zip) file. I think opening the data from demos can only bring good news - such as this :D

To be honest, the first time I saw 195/95 I thought "this can be done in 64kb". Not that I could do it, but that someone could, and you did, congrats, the effort is worth a thumb up alone.

This was scary! Why not use a softsynth ( I pressume this is midi, atleast it sounds like that)? You have a couple of k's left and it would really improve the overall feel of this. The soft piano part in the middle sounded really strange! :)

This was just some 64k conversion from plastic demo, nothing new to see here expect long precalc.... just kidding I couldn't believe my eyes. How did you make all those models fit and that shading with just precalc, I hate you so much.

Something goes wrong when the precalc is longer than the intro.
But like paradise this one is a pretty impressive work by RGBA.
Funny thing, this one runs with a much better framerate then the Plastic demo on my PC.

q to rgba: is the lighting full PRT (like in plastic's demo), or just ambient occlusion? I get an impression that it's AO plus some shadow maps only.

i'll just say one thing: you bastards. =)

- all the "lit" stuff is black here (gffx 5700 quadtro.. lame card i know, but it should handle it, right? unless you handle floating point buffers a bit nastily?).
- the music. just.. no.
- come on, make a new prod instead. =) that would be a lot more interesting.
- the precalc is, if it's AO, way too slow for what it is. if it's SH, its quite respectable. :)
rulez added on the 2005-07-26 10:25:22 by smash smash
amazingly long load time, but amazing stuff once it loads. Music is good i think, but the synth definately needs work.

Oh, same card as smash here (quadro fx 1000) and it works fine.

a boring precalc but a kick ass intro !!!
rulez added on the 2005-07-26 11:07:00 by cyb0rg cyb0rg
bonzaj: the "/256" thing is because of the ratio between a 16 MB demo and a 64 KB intro. 16384 / 64 = 256 :). So the intro name could be read as "(195/95) divided by 256".

everyone else: thanks for your comments. The synth will sound much better after some fixes, and about the long precalc time... Well, we'll try :).

This would haven't been possible without pastic's demo, and I feel it like a coop production. Wow! we have great scenemates! now Plastic and Conspiracy (who helped us with music last year on paradise). ;)

Bonzaj: Thank you very much for giving us your demo pass, it will help a lot to do the final version.

Witia: You are a great modeler! it was very fun doing your models, very complex and original. We did them r3d and me, and well... iq generated some models too. lol (XD)

Hi all. Thx for the comments.

Normally the loading time is about 4 times shorter (1 minute on my computer). BUT, just some minutes before the deadline we discovered some problems and had to do a BIG hack (oh yeah, you gessed). Final version willl take 1 minutes of precacl again.

The normal one minute time is normally used for the AO calc, what is done using the gfx card.

No floating point textures are used at all, and no RGBE (what it a god trick anyway). We do something else :)

We will fix the sound next weeks, what will aliviate the loading time. We will also add probably the last scenes in the final version of the very nive 195/95, since we still have some room for space improvements.

Thank you all for the patient, and for the comments. Really!
added on the 2005-07-26 17:53:42 by iq iq
By the way, we forgot the greets on the txt (on the demo itself we just wanted to greet the people at the partyplace, as the original demo does). Here goes the most important ones:

I wonder what I'd think of this as an intro if I'd never seen the demo? precalc wasn't too bad on my 1.8Ghz processor (about 3 minutes) - it was a little disconcerting when the progress bar went _backwards_ though :P

Anyway, very well done!

7 minutes precalc here. I hope it's much less in the final version. I hadn't seen the plastic demo before seeing this. At the same day I downloaded the final version and later this intro without knowing about their connection. I was impressed by the intro after the long precalc time but later I had to run the plastic demo at home to get a deja-vu wtf feeling!

Mad precalc time, don't know if I have ever seen a demo with such a long precalc, I thought it had crashed for a while but I hung in there.

The scenes are breathtaking though I don't know if I could stand the precalc time to watch ovre and over again, still have this thumb :-)

rulez added on the 2005-08-26 21:01:18 by organicdreams organicdreams
Perhaps, best 64kb for this year.
however, precalc time too slow.
(It got 20 minutes in my machine...)

it expects of final version.:)

I waited 7-8mins to receive only music but black screen? :(
anyone else receive this?

Does this demo need pixel shading 2.0? is it OpenGL? If so, Please be more specific in readme re: requirements.

winXP, AMD XP2000+CPU, 512RAM, Radeon9200..
added on the 2005-12-13 14:39:34 by Gaia Gaia
Is OpenGL based, shaders 2.0, yes. 58 MB of system Ram and any kind of Windows should do it.

Next week I will upload a fixed version, that takes 4 to 6 times less precomputation time (one minute in my radeon 9800). It will contain also improved music :) Give me just a few more days.
added on the 2005-12-14 18:50:32 by iq iq
This time final version arrived.
Now, it takes about 3 times less precalc time,
with a new synth, some bugfixes and improved visuals.
So, grab the exe
or video
Expect some ports to other platforms in the next weeks.Happy coding!

Quite an improvement on the synth indeed, now you don't have to cover your ears anymore while watching this beauty :)

finally, FILTERS! :D
tip to jewoll: make sure your chords have a nice low range too, it sounded a bit too thin, just boost the same instrument 1-2 octaves lower so it sounds like a brass section.

rulez added on the 2005-12-24 10:14:42 by magic magic
holy shi...(drool).............................

my word! the calc doesnt take a month, more fps (~40) than original 195/95 (~25), and looks just as good! the only soft spot is that the synth sounds a little cheap, but the eye candy does away with that blemish.

all this on a XP3200+, 1GB, 9600XT 128MB (cat 5.11)

Ok, Linux 32 and Linux 64 (AMD) versions uploaded. I also have a Win64 version and a Prism and Onyx4 versions (without music) for SGI somewhere, but since upx cannot work with those I preffer not to put them into the package (you can ask me for such a version if interested).

This is awesome in terms of visual quality, amount of mesh data pushed into 64 kB, and sample quality. _However_, I didn't count a single effect (unless you count glow as an effect, or the occasional animation of an object); it's all just a flyby, and not a terribly well-executed one in terms of camera work IMNSHO. I wasn't horribly excited about the music either. Still, it runs very smoothly on my machine (even amd64 Linux port :-) ), and overall it's well worth a thumb.

Symphonics in a softsynth (doesn't sound very midi but since the dancy middle part sounds less than good I guess it could be)... Blew my mind. Sounds awesome given how much space you use. Love! :D
