Best effect ever made

category: general [glöplog]
Bested effect ever made: Sprite multiplexer. Never again another effect had so much impact on me. I can not describe the feelings I had when there were 16 sprites on the screen for the first time.

The weird morph journey in Scraps of Being / Mankind.

It's just picture morphing I suppose, but really innovatively used. Someone needs to do an updated, hires PC version of that effect!
24bit morphride - just to give it it's official name!
I think anti-truck-code is one of the best effects since it checks for the physical presence of a special person in front of the computer. ;)
the 8x8 wobbler. so simple. so flexible. so elegant.

i think the possibility to press esc to exit bad demos/intros could possibly be the one

6 pages????
This was created today!?

...let's see... best efect... this one

It's hard to think of a best effect, since most effects only look good with other effects.

For historical reasons I would choose rotozooming.

For me personally, it's Dweezil's chaoszoomer. And yes, Tizzy sort of did the same thing earlier but his version wasn't nearly as cool. The one in Bananamen just blew me off my feet, and it's such a nasty trick too. :)

Aparently I'm consuming to much drugs, and I was wrong.
