Raytracing is the new rasterization, and thus spheres are the new cubes. I think this was the best sphere-demo in the compo :-)

Very high production values. I like how it felt optimistic and warm, even despite the hipstery vibe with the camera.

Great rendering, but not necessarily the best pacing (that last scene went on a bit toooo long...)

Really beautiful and relaxing. Also what nagz said.

Looks awesome. With which version of Notch was this done? The »learning«-edition?

calm and beautiful - among the best entries in the compo.
and i reeeeally love the soundtrack (nice chords).

In my opinion, the slow movement doesn't work well with the warm colors. But I love the look of the stills, so thumb it is.

I really dug this at the party :)

The general look of the visuals is sweet.. except that something immediately goes "error!" in my brain when I see near-photorealistic scenes with inexplicable overlapping of objects. That should've either been avoided or exaggerated to make it less annoying. But that's a relatively minor point, this still looks and sounds nice and works well as an invitation.

Calm, simple and beautiful.

gaspode: It's essentially the Pro version, which I'm freely able to use since I'm one of the developers :)

I really, REALLY love the music in this one! Simple melody but very beautifully crafted, deep and atmospheric soundscapes. Fizzer's effects and kaomau's visuals are a perfect match. This has everything I could hope for in a stylish invitation demo. Thank you for making this!!

Impossible to run this in real-time on my computer though, in some scenes I get no more than 5 fps even in low resolutions. Time to upgrade? /o\

so beautiful. Love the polishing and the modelling!

beautifully rendered, and the visuals and music match so well!

Yeah, this was lovely during the compo!

damn this is more polished than the balls of a pro snooker player.

Amazing, looks fanatastic

Nice work

This one's like a beautiful dream, in both audio/visual terms. Reminds me a bit on Imagine by TGGC.

gorgeous, could have been tightened up direction wise, none the less as an exercise in visual composition and rendering techniques, it is a stunner! :)

Love the soundtrack. Also, really nice balls - not even joking, so pleasing to look at, could have watched a demo of just that :)

Tech overkill. Looks sooo damn polished.. And the music is ace. Does remind me a lot to one of my all time favourite demoscene tracks "ocean machine" from tbl. Thumbs!

Pretty, oh so pretty! Also very pleasing flow bonused by well done effects, and the music fits perfectly to the moods. One of the best executed invitation demos as well :)

the most beautifully rendered spheres, i guess
