Very good. Loved the sphere with laser beams and the fast paced tunnels.

This is my favourite Brain Control intro so far.. the screenshot scene is especially sweet.

The part in the screenshot is the coolest part. :) The intro isn't bad at all, but the visual action seem to have been created with no relation what so ever to the music (read: the music is slooow-paced, and the visuals are fast-paced)

This was nice! I really loved the music, so thanks for the link!

Too flashy, jumpy and wavy for my liking. Just made it look messy.

Cool. Better than their Breakpoint intro.

very slow here, but i like the music
added on the 2007-08-20 19:02:44 by RA RA
I hear the music, but can't see shit (win xp, radeon x1900).
added on the 2007-08-20 19:11:44 by teel teel
teel: drivers? works "fine" with same setup only x1800. looking good but it's annoyingly slow. maybe i need a reboot...

all in all okayish.

The slow confusing visuals still don't make it for me. At least I like the synth sound!

lovely design ! I love this one

This kind of mercury was definately good for me - a-w-e-s-o-m-e effect and good music, which is usually a good combination - in this case, too.

It would be interesting to see a generative intro tool that would create a complete intro, including the effects, the timing, and even the title by a single button click. I suspect that your tools are quite near to be able to perform that; but some "human" touch to the concept/art would add a lot to the experience.

Btw, the part in the screenshot reminded me to luxo.

@Ger: I hope you are kidding. Of course it is 100% human made. Well let's say 95% human and 5% beer. But I don't let the beer make desicions. So I guess it IS 100% humanmade :)

I just like it ;)

Best intro from braincontrol imho!

I like it, although the later parts are a little bit too chaotic to me.

nice, but it kills my gpu :(

A bit too generic for my taste. Not bad, but I probably won't watch it again.

not bad

For some reason I especially liked the screenshot and ball/laser scenes.

i enjoyed the video version much, my computer is too slow to handle it
Brain Control dominates the 64kb intro market nowdays! And this intro is no exception. Keep at it dudes I love them!

I like the camerawork and the lights, nice little details in those.

visuals are okay up to nice and tune is good. but the combination does not work for me at all. it looks more agressive than it sounds. not sure if it's a matter of colors or that flashing. so piggie it is.
