I think this was the first 32-bit color demo I ever saw.. other than that, it was basically like Machines of Madness, but shorter. Eh, what the hell, I'll give it a rulez.

this thingie has in fact a great soundtrack. the effects were kindof slow for those days, but 'cause this really was one of the first 32bit demos. definately worth hearing ;)

OK, Haze by Shock is a month older and also had 32-bit color, but Rotaliator made much better use of colors. BTW, what was the deal with using AMY.GIF (the girl-face from Autodesk Animator) as a texture? Kinda cheapened the demo a little. :)

kinda off topic but mfx used 32bit colors in their assembly 96 demo "stream".

Yes, rulez. But, phoenix, even the screenshots show that they didn't realy make that great use of all these colors.

fakemode anyone? :) clearly an dubious-demo, but i kinda hated those "all-3d-things" back in The Days(tm) so no rulez

Yet another dubius demo with mindblowing music. Also yet another demo from the heyday of 3d object shows. Some minor glitches, a lot of really dated looking models and fx now, but still a good demo if you like old demos! Also one of my favorites from back in the day. ..

Objectshow, but a good one. And the music in the part with the rotating flares in the room (don't really remember, it's been ages since I saw this) makes me shiver.

:) brings back cool 3dstudio memories
today looks simple and broken, but back in the days it was one of the two Dubius demos I had swapped in and watched often as reference. Thumb to respect historic, sentimental memories.
