Resistance is futile - Really nice coherent effects-demo : design is cute (rezstyle) and homogenous during the demo, effects are nice and there's a big effort on synchronisations. Alambik seems to be full of potentials, as rez :)

Oh my god, rez is sending some wood !
Design, syncro, and styli ! Alambik is really powerfull :)

very clean design and synchro, classic but energetic soundtrack and original effects (see the screenshot).
rez is perfectionnist for music, and also for code !

nice job.

woah, great optics! really well done! synching is great too. but i think the music doesn't quite keep up to the great style of the demo.

Damn, forget what I said about the music, it was another Alambik demo that had good music :) Damn, too many demos these days...
added on the 2002-04-03 16:52:08 by Wain Wain
well, sorry for the music but i havn't enough to do everything finished.
i prefer to do really nice visual instead of "loosing" time under ft2 :)
i will do better for my next demo !

What a nice prod !!!
Why are we still using 3D cards ? ! The horizontal deformation is so nice !!!
And sincerely, I prefer watching this prod instead of boring huge 3D scenes......
Waiting for Borg II ....

Kewl. Reminded me a bit of Fuzzion's rand and Satori's prods, which is only a good thing. Nice design and I didn't know you could do this much in Alambik (I had only seen some of the examples in the-demo.com).
rulez added on the 2002-04-07 22:17:18 by DiamonDie DiamonDie
hei hei
now you can watch this nice demo online here (only 117k) ! you just need to install the very little alambik plugin.
added on the 2002-04-08 19:31:23 by rez rez
OK. I feel a bit strange about that one. The design is definitely cool but i guess doing the whole stuff with Alambik isn't a great piece of coding. OK, go, flame me now. I'd admit, i haven't ever done anything with Alambik...
This demo rocks! I love it :). Very good job, rez.

Btw, about the Alambik thing. Don't compare Alambik with Flash or other similar things (if you did). Alambik is very similar to a programming language. Think it like a programming language who has many ready functions for graphics. And from the demos at the-demo.com i've saw, this prod doesn't use (m)any ready functions. Rez maybe have coded anything inside :)
rulez added on the 2002-04-09 15:20:11 by BadSector BadSector
hei hei,

almost all effects are "hand-coded", of course i havn't code the 3d-engine,music-player,etc... but it's definitely not lame pre-rendered 3d like flash :)
i think it's not more difficult to do alambik code than playing with opengl,demogl,demopaja or others things like that...

we are in 2002, now only "art" count. imho the technical challenge in demomaking is dead (except for intros of course).
added on the 2002-04-09 16:50:49 by rez rez
Nice demo here !
You do a kickass job tabernacle with that alambik stuff.
Don't loose your time to code a 3D engine or a music player, but keep on express yourself with that coding language. Time has come for artists and musicians to send wood !

Waiting for Borg II but with a trumpet sound this time I hope :) Meuuuuhhhhh ... Glop.

yes, i really love this one! it's so oldschoolish... i also love music... but some effects are poor...

and it suddenly fu*ked up my win98... :)

i think i will try what can alambik do :)

Very slick!
Loved the 'view the inside of a cube through a magic box' effect (aka, flipping the face normals) :o)

It was really nice to see greets at the end too!

Well sync'd nice colour pallette.
I can't wait to see your next production!

Wow !! I just watched this prod today and it kicks ass! A very neat demo with a clean design, good ideas and a great soundtrack, what do we need more?
It's also nice to see some kind of Eclipse-design back :)
I liked a lot the "this demo is not..." part, really funny!
Excellent work, Rez, you made me wanting to try Alambik :)

added on the 2002-06-24 13:39:49 by gekko gekko
I must say, I have never liked Alambik and that kind of "demomaking"-stuff, but this demo definitly rules! :) Yes, it might be a bit slow as stefan points out, but hey, this is a fucking good start! keep up the good work, or I will kill you and your family. ;D

I like the effects and design is cool. And the effect in the screenshot is definately the coolest one. Only thing I don't like is the music.
rulez added on the 2002-06-24 21:01:28 by teel teel
well, the demo isn't "slow", it's just me who add a timer in my effects to keep a same "decent" speed on every computers (if not, the effects will run too quickly...)
added on the 2002-06-25 15:14:23 by rez rez
...and alambik isn't a "demo-maker" product, you can do everything with it...
btw you can do demos too :)

Good evening(REZ), I don't like to say that but since you are angry about my 4k which has in fact the same name.. I would apologize, I have seen your demo at the party and like it a lot. I didnt know that taking the same name for different content is a crime in the scene :(. And since there isnt only one borg at startrek, and a friend of mine has the name "borg". Borg suited so well to my intro, and it is such a nice logo that i didnt want to exhange.. Dont be to angry and perhaps (and if you like my 4k) you should put a thumb for a friend of your and my demo (whith nearly the same content (joking)). Hopefully an upper one.:).
rulez added on the 2005-12-30 17:35:30 by mad mad
Yeah I know im to proud of myself.. And youre alright with your anger. If your anger was growing by the last thread sorry. I don't hate anyone, and only wanted to have a good time. BTW I love this alambik one and have seen it multiple times already.. But didn't remember it by searching the name.. Yeah pout should suffice on that.. But pouet has no problems with the same name so i don't bother.
added on the 2005-12-30 17:40:17 by mad mad
BTW search for "matrix" and you find more than two results with the same name.. Hope that stops our "differences"..
