Yeah, I know a video is needed (being dx11 only) and it's already framerendered, but uploading from the solskogen connection is simply not realistic. Hopefully up tomorrow when I get home.

Like it, visuals are nice and the music is really cool for a 4k!

Made a Youtube Rip for it too :)

Shiny! Didn't enjoy the music too much, though...

that effed up my PC pretty thoroughly - black screen and not responding to any input, had to power cycle to recover. Win7 x64, 4 GB, ATI HD6570.

Hooray for technical achievement and not using Arial/Times/Impact in an intro ^^

pretty nice. But hiding artifacts with blur is ugly ;)

Pretty nice 4k, big thumb for the technical side!

this crashed my pc - the same way as alpha c describes. couldn't even press ctrl+alt+del.

On second thoughts, while the technical side is definitely very cool, I'm not 100% convinced it was the best choice for these scenes ;)

A really nice 4k with some really nice effects, but it wasn't that fun to watch. Since it was an invitro it's doomed to be some kind of text writer so I guess that limits the artistic freedom. Your next 4k will be really awesome I assume! :)
rulez added on the 2011-07-18 00:11:05 by ekoli ekoli
sexy soundtrack, goodlooking text and fantastic particle effect - sync and a little less ao could have been a bit better imho, but still a rock soild 4k!

love the loonies, nice little prod :)

noby: no, we didn't spend bytes on a nice messagebox saying "sorry, but you need a directx 11 graphics card to run this invitation" ;)
psionice: guess it would have been hard to fit comparable ao quality (I'm no fan of ssao) and the particles with a graphics pipeline, polygon based, std font, approach. The font (+textwriter) and the render optimization (including the need for "GroupMemoryBarrierWithGroupSync()" etc) takes quite some space, but still.. for the same render fidelity..
v3nom: strange, works fine on my 6870, maybe try upgrading drivers.
But I can see I have to adjust the snare sync, it's only right on the slower laptop.

Seeing as we did have a few bytes to spare (and probably could have digged out some more), that actually wouldn't have been such a bad use of them. :)

Very cool, though more interesting effects could be done with this tech. Still impressive!

Text looking this good in 4k deserves a thumb.
Rest is ok.

bored of people downthumbing for ridiculous reasons...

good stuff guys, although not angry nor fast enough, but that's a personal matter :)

Nice prod. Also: counter-thumb for people who give bullshit reasons to down-thumb (and also: don't know how to spell).

Not working here. Exited after some seconds.

Any ideas?

micksam: FFS, unoeuro downgrading/reconfiguring the IIS without notice, completely breaking the site!
Cj: Remember to run with your 540m? (ie usual optimus problems).

Psycho: Thanks for helping. Yes, I have already tried it. A NV graphics driver reinstall did it for me.
