But kool demo on the Amiga. Some nice effects.

Haha, great! You'll get my thumb when I get the final/this running fine on a real Amiga.

This is awesome and very cool!
In despite the (ab)use of Rihanna, it's much better than TBL's demos in PSP! ;)

I can't understand how this demo was ranked 5th. It certainly deserves a better place.

The dancing was very static (it must not be easy to animate dancing ppl) and some of the poses look awkward. The demo could have done with more work on the animation.

However, i really like this demo a lot. Great atmosphere and some fresh and well designed parts and ideas. Could have done with slightly less 3D object show and more of those other lovely yummy effects.

This one had two awesome effects, and a lot of unintended breakdance (emphasizing "break").
Good demo overall and still making demos for Amiga == instant thumb up.

Everything in this demo is good, except the final result which is absolutely horrible...

I might come back to thumb this down in the near future.. :(
hehhe shameless! Reminds me of Dance Extravaganza by Boozoholics. I'm delaying the thumb until I've seen it properly

Umm, the demo had some nice ideas, but the execution was pretty terrible. Especially the dancemoves were really bad.

nice visuals, but the music is so misplaced it's unbelievable, and as britelite said, the execution is horrible, I wasn't enjoying this one bit, sad to say.

Absolutely terrible music. Some really nice design touches. I'm reserving my thumb until i see how fast it runs on a real amiga.

shouting "rip" at this when its such a total obvious send-up seems a bit like shouting "rip" at this.
apart from the dubious dancing anims its alright - 5th, rly?

It's nice to see Elude doing a demo in a totally different style, however, I don't like it much I'm afraid. Music is well done but absolutely not my cup of tea, visuals weren't that great either (specially the anims). Will also delay my final judgement until I've seen it on the real deal.
added on the 2009-09-22 10:44:23 by StingRay StingRay
If only this Step by Step was released at a party called Elude...

Nice graphics but the movement is eh... peculiar.. good to see you guys branch off the TBLish stuff a bit!

- disco/funk-theme is soooo 1998/1999/2000/2001/2002/2003/2004/2005/2006/2007/2008/2009.. it's not funny anymore and has not been for years
- music is not my taste and doesn't fit the theme/visuals

+ nice to see non-3D-flyby stuff by elude
+ some of the visuals was very nice and deserves the thumb for sure
rulez added on the 2009-09-22 11:15:28 by yonx yonx
Absolutely superb! Best elude demo so far. Not boring tbl-copy/3dflyby for once! GRATS! With some better syncing of the dancework and the music this would be outstanding.

(I am not even going to comment on the music ripping) More of this please!
rulez added on the 2009-09-22 11:57:58 by Proteque Proteque
the only demo worth rewatch, apart from the winner. should have come 2nd or so.

glad to see, that kiero is doing much more polished stuff than he did under the mawi label. keep on rockin!

Imho other ones prods by Elude are better, but this one good too. Not so good music maybe, and animation of ppls a bit "bad", but demo itself still nice, with nice effects , and still quality. Also works fine on Morphos.

Except for the last scene (3 chicks moving) the demo ran in an acceptable speed.
The last scene really crawls and seems to drain all the cpu power so that the soundtrack starts to stutter.
Nevertheless the technical BB Image is mandatory.
But I have a huge personal dislike over (and especially) the song "Umbrella" and the whole album b/c I looked deeper into what the lyrics were all about - but this is the wrong place to lament about that.
Also I sense the ironic twinkle in this production :)
Ribbons never die \o/

i'm feeling a sense of Uncanny Valley here. But it's still a great prod!

but overall, it's not a good idea to base an entire demo on humaniods. even with great animation, it doesnt work well

Looks fresh (not the usual somewhat epic stuff) but I just can't bear the music at all.
Suicide Barbie meets V.I.P.2 - excellent!
rulez added on the 2009-09-22 22:26:28 by Bobic Bobic
Well... I think this prod needs a few words of an explanation. First and most important thing - this is NOT a final version. In fact this is not even what we could call "party version". It's just a "work in progress" - so dont't be afraid, lot's of things (including some anims ;) will be changed/fixed/or deleted.Why we decided to release unfinished production? Imho the best way to say "thank you" to party-orgs is contributing to it with a release. I think this unfinished demo was better than nothing. We just forgot to say to orgas "don't spread this after party, we put funished demo max 2 weeks later".
Second thing - music. Uhmm... I can't understand why some of you blame Chaser for using someone vocal - lot's of musicans do that. All music is not ripped or stolen... so stop talking bullshit (hi pohar) - and start thinking. If you wanna judge Chaser maybe you should listen to his other stuff? BTW - it was my idea to use Rihanna's voice from exactly this song. Why? - well lirycs are so stupid, that make me smile - Kiero and Chaser agreed with me.
@okkie: 10 points for the perceptiveness :)

@ubik: really really hoping that the final version is finished someday soonish!!
added on the 2009-09-23 12:00:37 by z5 z5
@Ubik: once you know what terminology was used in the song the lyrics become not stupid or profane ... "creepy" is a rather good description.
The follow up of this was "Disturbia".

Anyways, also lookin' forward to the final.
added on the 2009-09-23 12:09:16 by d0DgE d0DgE

While I agree that the vocals in this (and in Hyperventilation, for that matter) have high entertainment value, there is no point in arguing about ripping or not. If you took someone elses work and used it in your own (funny/well done or not), you ripped it. It's as simple as that :)
added on the 2009-09-23 12:24:11 by gloom gloom
I guess it's easy to pick fault with this demo, but I enjoyed it.

While most demos today are Tron rippoffs, inside jokes or are trying desperately to be perceived as art, it was nice to see something so fun and entertaining.

It's a loooong haul (literaly, patience required) and quite "out there", but start with this docu's 1st part.
I knew before that smth was odd with that latest album but couldn't pin point it, after all, it's not my style of zik ;)

dodge: i watched an hour of that 'documentary' yesterday but there is only so much lunacy I can take.. props for his effort on over-analyzing a pop song.

To not derail this prods thread I shall use this post to give it a thumb, since it's good to see Elude on a new path! Waiting for the final!
rulez added on the 2009-09-24 11:31:57 by okkie okkie
okkie ... remember that line that it's a "loooong haul" and "out there"; the whole analysis is 3 parts(!). You won't get the whole arc as long as you don't allow yourself the 'question'.
In my book - the guy has got some points.
Perhaps this elevator pitch is better to understand.

yep...that should be the last post regarding that issue.
Did I mention yet, that ribbons never die?

the demo itself is cute.

not all bad but the style isn't my thing at all and neither is remixing rihanna. (abba is totally different since it's so cheesy it's funny) Also a lot of the parts are kinda slideshowish on amiga.

I would so thumb this up, but the song Umbrella mases me nauseous. No matter what you do with it!

So I guess that's a piggy.
I actually thought this was pretty damn refreshing. I wish more groups were taking a bit more of a lighthearted approach instead of taking everything so damn seriously. Keep up the great job, Elude.

Well, the remix is at least better than the original version and the demo has some nice ideas. Its not the best from Elude (or MDW) but its different compared to the regular stuff which gives some freshness. Even its not finished yet I will give a thumb up.

OK, I partly take that back. :P
But some parts are slow and suffers from bad framedrops..
I dunno about the design, feels like disco is starting to be a pretty overused theme, and the music, well, is not original at all..
Needs moar effects, and not just coreographed 3d-scenes.
Weak thumb.
rulez added on the 2010-02-17 07:33:00 by Frost Frost
what xeron said: Most horrible music.. Are you kidding Chaser?

However, if the 3d engine can produce SMOOTH results on a REAL Amiga then the coder-pron would "save" this from a thumb down.

Hm, musicbuffer breaks a bit into 1st dancescene and then music plays choppy all the demo through and 3D scenes are about 1-3 FPS, on A1200/060@80. Does it depend on any patches beyond SetPatch43_6b? Or some other reason? I've addbuffers 500 and shove the shell log to > NIL:

Just wondering if there's any way I can make it showable to friends.
