Top quality visuals reminiscent of ballet dancer and nematomorpha. Great demo title!

Oh hey it's ballet swimmer!

Only one effect but this is so good the demo could go on and on and on.

Runs smoothly on my PC, single sequence of effects with spherical impostors, but nice to watch.

good scene and track but was hoping for a less underwhelming ending

Was a hypnotic experience on the big screen.

^ Great, GREAT one effect prod! Would love to see it on a big screen.

An alternative ending could be if the "ballet swimmer" found its "family" or significant other swimmer ending in a BANG as the ball^Wparticles touch.

Well, yeah. I think I saw this on Uncle-x's machine back in 2008 or so :-D

nice one screener, but it's 3 minutes too long :D

a one-trick pony but looks beautiful

I really don't need more to be happy: a great track and mesmerizing motion. Pretty sure i could watch a 1h version :D

nematomorpha is back bebey

Looks and sounds really nice. Maybe overstays its welcome slightly, and is rehashed mfx-territory, but I'm not complaining.

Super nice

I really love the organic feel of that effect but it was a bit boring as a demo.
It lacks camera movement and variety.

Exactly what I would expect from a new MFX demo, very similar to earlier prods and I absolutely love it! :) Only the audio could have supported the visuals even more intensively in few parts (e.g. 1:36-1:47 in the youtube video), but I guess the visuals are built upon the music? Awesome stuff, could watch this forever.

great one scene demo

Incredibly well designed. It’s just amazing how much you can squeeze out of that effect. The colors especially are just perfect.

The rendering is quite cool but as a whole I find it just drags on and on going nowhere. Nice effect.

it has the feels

awesome MFX sountrack

because sometimes single fx and nice track is all you need.

clear resemblence of the ballet dancer but it kinda lacks its disturbance...
production quality is way better of course, looks and sounds fab even if its a one trick pony

Cool organic looking squid

Winamp visual plugin 2023. I like my demos with more than one effect or scene, but the music, color design, and movement are all worthy of a thumb.

Elicits hypnosis more than the thalassophobia the text suggests at the end. Then again, complaining about that would be complaining about two words at the end of a wonderful experience. I actually like it that it goes into an entirely different place than the aforementioned Ballet Dancer.

Love where this is going~

Love the effect.
But's it's just ok for me.
almost 4 minutes is too much for too litlle variations: the color, pulsating, and directions, rotations,

Pretty much what Jobe said, it's the kind of techno demo where the flow is pitch perfect.
