I really have no clue how I could make that typo :D Read it as 'ove for the time being, or something.

Excellent demo. Fairytale-like atmosphere, greatly enhanced by the wonderful soundtrack, and it ran extremely well on my PC (something I don't dare to expect from the Fairlight/CNCD demo). This demo just oozes atmosphere, it's a brilliant experience.

The animation of that flying animal ruins at a bit, though. It is simply too uniform.

A bit ASD-ish (yeah, typical 2010 comment).
At the very beginning I was like "oh yeah, thats something I could enjoy" and then, it went all flyby and beautiful, very nice rendering and and.. and.... and... got bored.

Yeah it's awesome technically. But still, the more it kept going, the more I disliked it. And the music didn't help at all.

So it's my piggy.

Beautiful dark atmosphere, it was a really nice finale to all of it.

(However at places it's really slow on my machine, and sound begins to stutter painfully, which I don't really understand... c2d 1.8Ghz and GTX260 is really that old already? oh and Win7 x64)

I can't really put my finger on it but certain elements of "rove" left me cold. Please take my criticism lightly, since this is clearly a solid, rememberable demo that will rank high amongst other production of this year; make that *any* year.

But I think it had the potential to reach another level altogether if, maybe, it was rearranged differently:

for a start it felt without a purpose: a fly-over with certain, rather disconnected elements (ribbons/tower ribbon?) appearing twice or more without any significant alteration in the way the look or move.

The last minute typography (actually *all* typography) was a let-down, felt like an afterthought with its bland type and presentation. I didn't quite get the point of binary base but I'm sure optimus would find it geekily cool.

On the plus side there were a couple of killer effects (the flock and the mirroring at the beginning) and the music was fitting (albeit not very memorable).

I tend to agree with Navis here, some effects is really good but i felt that the direction got a bit lost.

What a pity - did we miss the final Farbrausch vs. Navis showdown on BP2010? Why didn't the ASD demo get finished in time?

added on the 2010-04-05 17:20:03 by Calexico Calexico
Delicately arranged but seems to lack substance, so i'm with Navis mainly.

rulez added on the 2010-04-05 20:07:39 by gloom gloom
Just incredible.
This is a balanced production.
Has the typical 3d fly-by wow-factor: LIghtmaps,self-shadows,enviros,..
Has the brain-factor: has effects. as the real oldtimes demos, but also focusing on showing a coherence to the spectator(off-scene or scene geek) . Guessing:
Skeletal animation?
Particles distribution?
Shader smart cool stuff like the cube-lava-cube-tentaculus.
Recursive scene inmersion on rocks?
Elastic wires.
So, this is a perfect demo. Shows-off the coder habilities, and even more important has no valium-effect coz, on every transition your ager to see what cool stuff comes next.

Well,...as negative part. Yes, transitions, are soo evident and simple. A white fade...but who cares.
Perphaps, the sinus spikes does not fit pretty much well in the planet-concept. but well, if we accept this is representing the debris-cubes native planet (as heard on some of the parts in the soundtrack,...the debris distort- effect), well..it fits. And finally, in negative aspects, the lava flow, it's just ok. expecting some "heat" fx, or some sinus movement, not just a nice orange texture.

Did not saw the winner demo neither, but I consider this prod. an instant winner.

Well, I am happy about any fr-release, but I want to see a final version of this one, with a decent arrangement of all the gorgeous content/effects and without the texts, the party ending and unnatural flight animations. But who am I to tell you what to do? Yet another fanboy, I guess.

Farbrausch in ASDish way of making demos, maybe better than ASD. Best FR demo so far, way better than Debris and Popular in my eyes. This stuff catch my attraction from beginning to end. Flawlessly directed, perfect camera moves and twists, eye catchy with oustanding, i mean FUCKING OUTSTANDING Wayfinder´s music score.

This is what I called a "perfect demo". Thank you. Moral winner of BP2010 for me.

music: not my cup of tea

never the less, it made a huge impact on me in the compo and seemed to touch a spot in my mind other productions could not reach.
rulez added on the 2010-04-05 23:00:35 by abductee abductee
Oh my god, this is soooo beautiful! It's a flybye but there is something different about it. Maybe the alien out of this world landscapes, with strange ribbon creatures, flocks, alien grid twisters, dreamy places and of course the music that is so dreamy and fit sooo much with the whole thing. From one point it's like the farbrausch version of elevated in an alien world, from other points it brings back memories of the product by having an upscroller while showing more cameras. I can't say more what is the magic in there but it's really 2nd in my liking from this compo after 'wir sind einstein'.

p.s. At first I didn't got the 1000 years but when I saw another 1111 years I remembered that there are 10 types of people.

good solid demo -- was a pleasure to see. two points of criticism though:
- became a tad repetitive after a while (especially in terms composition/colorization..)
- that flying bug/animal was horribly animated

but still, a cool and "bombastic" big-screen experience worthy of closing the compo/party with.

Way to say goodbye to BP, with a HUGE bang :) . This was fantastic...I've watched it many times already :D . The birds felt a bit cheesy, but still looked very cool...and that is quite literally my only complaint. Soundtrack is one of the greatest ever produced, especially with the ambient sounds matching the scenes. Wonderful :) Deserved to win, though.

This demo started off *really* well, there were some scenes which reminded me of Avatar even... but then what? Just more or less the same scenes again and again with different camera angles... For example, if you have the same "mechanical flying fish" on screen during the last 2 minutes, you shouldn't loop the same animation again and again without any variation.
While both the visuals and the music are great, this demo is less than the sum of its parts, simply due to a lack of overall design.

To be honest, the first thing that crossed my mind was "overambitious". To me, this demo is trying to be epic in every respect, but then it just about falls short of its own goals. But without a doubt, there's some really good stuff to see here as well. Loads of blood, sweat and tears must have been required to produce a very good demo. Well, and that should be celebrated.

Small criticism: fading out the music was bad. Not that fading out is wrong but the visuals didn't complement it and the music didn't sound like it was meant to fade, it sounded like you were suffocating the music to cram it into the demo length.

I hope the final has addressed this. Perhaps a scene was cut?

Nice! I liked the day/night cycle and the greetings pullback especially.

For some reason I also find it to be an oddly 'retro' demo. The music and the whole concept feel very late 90's. This is not a bad thing, mind you, but somehow when the sinewave-spikes appeared it made total sense.

As always, more could've probably been squeezed out of the idea, but it's still a fine demo.

BTW just a personal opinion: I would have liked it better, if the infinitive zoom into the planet in would have been reversed into the pull back from the planet, placed at the end of the first half of the demo, as the final scene.

This is just *beautiful*.

I was thinking recently that Debris was the best demo you ever produced, but now I'm wondering which of those two it is. This one succeeds in its wow effect, and the emotion of the end of Breakpoint is very present for sure. Maybe it's not as well finished (bird animation, a few simple transitions) as Debris, but at this point, this would be the difference between wonderful and even better.

Thank you guys; have a good rest.

Some parts were quite cheesy and the animation of that bird thingy annoyed me, but nothing too bad. But why always ribbons? Oh well, I have them too on my next intro.

I dont remember if i have already commented on this demo, but I can say this again. Awesome demo, in every aspect. Visually best one from farbrausch.

rulez added on the 2010-04-06 21:54:45 by Radiant Radiant
I can see why people say they were sad while watching this demo. It has a whole "goodbye scene" vibe, the opposite of "Hello World!". It was presented at the very end of the last compo at the last breakpoint, so I find it fitting.

I just prefer demos that don't make feel so depressed, but hey! If it brings me down that means it's working, right? It means it's well done.

...so congrats!

It is quite literally the "Never Ending Story" of demos! Seriously, thats the film I think of while watching it, from the track to the general atmosphere.. any inspiration there? lol. Anyway, it was a great end of compo / breakpoint demo and shows that the scene spirit is most certainly still there!

Watching it again and i must make my piggy to a thumb up. It could be 5% better, but then again it`s few demos that are better then this one. It`s just that the expectations is so much higher for those who have made quality prods in the past. I would give it 9 out of 10.

added on the 2010-04-07 14:35:03 by nemesis nemesis
I think what makes a flyby slightly annoying is if it's all randomly chosen static meshes/objects (where the most effect-like property is rotation) but this has interresting details and effects here and there and thus makes you wait for the next surprise. Also the music and design makes it a soothing experience for me which I like. Thanks!

Farbrausch.. we rove you!! =) Contrary to Navis, i found this demo much to my liking even though there was far less content differentiation than I'd be a happy panda with. I also found the soundtrack to be excellent and it excited me very much. The only complaint I have is about that blasted bird... damn I wish I had control of a virtual shotgun in Rove to hunt it down!!

As for Rove being ASDish.. uh.. I don't see any ASDish element there (except of course the ASD logo in the greets..)

Finally on an unrelated note, it's funny how most of the groups greeted in this demo did not submit a demo to BP..

I liked the recursive fly-into-part and the look-for-the-greetings-part before it. No rendering bugs, Digitally-Imported-like music gave me a bit of that sense of wonder as with your earlier demos, that firefly alien looked a bit stupid flying so slow, and I agree it was a bit the same for a little too long time. A second world/change of theme at half-time would have kicked ass. If the memory of it makes me want to watch it again I will thumb it up!

to everyone who complained about the size: final will probably be a bit bigger, not smaller. most of the file size goes into meshes, and both the planet and the landscape meshes are handmade (awesome work by atom!) and not easily generated.

as we've said multiple times now, we're done with optimizing for size (heck, look at the size of the player executable!). these meshes are a lot better than anything we'd have been able to do procedurally, and definitely worth their size.

Adding the fact that it refused to start and I've got no clue WTF you need today to run a top notch PC demo (FLT^CNCD at least ran like a slideshow) ...plus the terrible terrible font ... holy crap please get rid of this typographic nightmare.

A more completed comment after watching a couple of times.

+ mood
+ music
+ swarms
+ tones
+ patchy fog
+ cell skin
- flying creature animation
- lack of story
- WoW like camera
- rock shader (lacks some high frequency noise, doesn't it?)

Am I right seeing in your five legged octopus a reference to rgba_slisesix ?

still a no go with a GTX 280 and 197.45 (latest) drivers
--- the share-shit in the dialogue !
-- boooring demo !
- music bores a lot !
+ music in the end-part makes a change ! eventho its the same track :p
++ the end-part makes it really interesting, coz of fast.paced !
+++ u suck that much, i needed to make it even somehow !

have a pig already ;)

( your tech is really advanced as always, but this demo sucks ! )
is it just me or is it more "3d" in Catalyst 9.11 or 12 vs 10.3? or is it just the booze wearing off??

well made and with lots of interesting ideas. I wasn't super keen on the animation of the flying creature, also didn't really like how everything is very clean looking - but it still rules! I particularly enjoyed the glowing towers and the way the mood changes when the lighting is dimmed down :)

3. That bird animation really sucks :)

i could complain about this and that,'cause normally i don't like this type of demos.
but hey, this one has a nice flow and extremely polished visuals. i also like the idea of using sound effects to carry the visuals. plus the endscroller creates a great "end of an era"-mood.

Nah Just think of it. I know it would´have been cool to release a MS DOS 3.3 demo in 1996, but....

Anyways, since you wanted to read it:

+ Nice mountains, even if they are shown through some caleidoscope effect.
+ Okayish music for a Farbrausch Demo.
+ Good Pace
+ Nice Greetings

- Flying things have very small wings compared to their body and their movement is rather silly. Looks like a standard Sine curve has been used for animation.
- These waving concrete reinforcements remind me of work. Which is not a good thing. ;-)
- Telescope sticks as Water? Nah, lets stick to some water effect.

Now I'm back reading funny stuff about internet dramas.

So far, my favourite demo of 2010.

Absolutelu huge scope. Some parts seem a bit unfinished like the flying-bone-bat-thingy and lava looks a bit dull.. but other than that - Amazing.

BIG thumb to Wayfinder. I rarely enjoy demo music anymore, but this one sends shivers up my spine.

I don't really know what to think about this one. On the other hand, I like the idea of mixing "natural" landscapes to synthetic elements, though I am not sure if this was the point of the creators ... but then the whole end product feels too plasticky, too smooth, both visually and aurally, the fractal-generated(?) mountains(?) look too obviously like fractals also. Nitpicking, I guess, but going to go with a piggy.

ammonia: seems some youtuber played parts it in a "show" and then registered _his_ vid with ContentID. Stuff like this happens a lot if you're an independent creator not out for money.

I vividly remember running this and other Farbrausch demos on my dads computer in winter around christmas; as my machine just wasn't beefy enough. Snow outside, hot coffee on the table and my dad standing next to me, curiously interested what I'm doing there. Tried to explain him the demoscene as good as I can, and what the thought process of my demos at that time was - and how I would love to do a demo just as good as Rove at one day.
That afternoon will always stay in my mind when I think back on my father, he sure is long gone - but that demo brings back those wonderful memories <3

This demo is so epic, as expected from Farbrausch. Love the vibe, and the soundtrack makes justice to this demo. Some of the landscapes reminded me a bit of those ones you would see in Turrican.
