my favourite from the compo. amazing! i could spot some cns-school direction (proper way) and the Very subtle use of speech samples crammed in just show how professional it is.
all my thumbs are UP

Guys, you absolutely knocked it out of the park, especially with that takeoff scene from the screenshot. Holy cow!
rulez added on the 2019-04-21 10:46:55 by Hopper/SquoQuo Hopper/SquoQuo
Macau strikes back with expert cinematography and sound design. There aren't too many scenes this time, but all of them share a deep majestic feel; they both tell a captivating story by itself and make you quiver in anticipation of the next scene. Every single bit of content is pushed to its limits, which is something I wish more demogroups did.

My thumbs take off with even more thrust than that Atlas!

The sound design/quality is awesome (when it's not glitching, but let's assume it's just my computer), but i found the music itself totally uninspired. The graphics is sometimes nice (like the fireball), but f.e. the clouds look like random embossed plasmas. I'm not feeling it. (The speech was a nice touch!)

Got my eyes all wet with delight, which made the rest of the compo look blurry :D Thanks for that! It's huge!
rulez added on the 2019-04-23 12:38:44 by alkama alkama
My only complaint is that the boosters aren't symmetrical and look to small to carry the necessary amount of fuel =D
Also, corrects are launched at an angle, not straight up :D

Really great intro, great rendering and colors.

The rocket is based on the actual dimensions of an Ariane 5, so you should talk to the ESA about that ;P
added on the 2019-04-23 16:05:34 by cpdt cpdt
I think I know someone who actually knows a bit more about the Ariane 5 booster design (he probably even worked on it).
Ohh and also urs knows just about everything when it comes to rocket science.

Back to the intro: Kick ass. I really love the colors and the composition of the scene in the screenshot.

That was wonderful. Anyone who loves or is fascinated by space must find themselves in this demo. The quiet way the rockets move and the atmosphere of this demo is an tribute to every scientist.

wow! this 64k has atmosphere. i really like the overall mood - thanks to the camera, editing and soundtrack. also: perfect ending (no stupid story in space).
one of my personal revision 19 highlights.

added on the 2019-04-24 01:03:45 by Maali Maali
Maali: I'm guessing that's because we target skylake/AVX2 (purely as a size optimization). I'll look at decreasing it to a lower target for the final, that should be fine :)

visuals and music, oh my! probably the seconds best production at the whole party

A fine substitute for the lack of Conspiracy or Mercury intros. :) Short, but pretty, and the countdown samples were a nice touch for 64k.

A video capture, finally: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mVdISz9-iFc

The capture also features some post-party polish, mainly: reworked the lighting in one shot, slight adjustment to a couple cuts early on, some animation curves tweaked, amount of grain slightly increased. Minor things. This the executable of this polished version will be put out soon too, along with some compatibility fixes.

The cloud rendering is fantastic, but what really struck me most were... the colors. They're absolutely spot on.

Perfect pace, hyper-realistic, immersive, brilliant soundtrack... Maybe too short? Anyway, I loved it!
rulez added on the 2019-04-30 15:16:32 by Dali Dali
anyway, good intro... and i like it as it's actually artistically polished enough to break away from a lot of other raymarching drivel we see these days in limited sized intros that may be mathematically interesting, but lack artistic finesse to actually look good. this intro does that :)
rulez added on the 2019-05-01 00:37:47 by Maali Maali
Hey all, we now have a final version of the prod which you can download from https://monadgroup.github.io/downloads/Atlas.zip (will be on archive.scene.org shortly).

Full changelog:
- Post-party polish: adjusted lighting and cuts slightly, tweaked some animations, etc. (these changes are already in the YT capture)
- Changed target CPU to Pentium/SSE4.2 for better size/compatibility (previously it was Skylake/AVX2)
- Some quality-of-life improvements to the resolution selector
- Added audio prerender option to config window
- Fixed logo on loading screen being black on some system

Huge props to yx for helping investigate some of the problems, and a big thanks again to all of you for your support <3

SubV242: hey, thanks for reporting the problem :)
I completely forgot to mention this in the nfo, but the intro uses some DX11.3 features (typed uav loads) which afaik requires DX12 support - so unfortunately I'm not surprised it doesn't work in Windows 7. Sorry about that.

Have to add to my pretty short previous comment about this:
Well executed beautyness in many dimensions! Especially like how the mood is built up, and how well the music fits deep into the visuals.

The demo is warping all over the place and showing previous frame if I don't activate pre-rendered audio on my PC :/ (GTX1070 & i5-6600k).

Again, awesome demo ! And that cloud rendering is wonderful !
rulez added on the 2019-05-11 14:35:35 by maeln maeln
The track is quite CPU heavy, in my DAW using 16 threads it uses about 30-50% of my 2700X CPU. The player in the exe uses the new multithreaded Wavesabre player running in 3 threads afaik, and on my CPU the threads seems to be consuming about 50% of a core each. There's a lot of polyphony and complex instruments and DSP chains there, so a few years old 4 core CPU with no SMT might not cut it, sorry about that.

Oh yes - the scene in the screenshot was simply one of those moments where being at Revision felt like the absolute right thing - thank you! :)
