Very original concept, liked it pretty much.

Wonderful.

original, though only one effect really

Single effect, lovely.

With some original music and artwork this would have been much better, but it's still an amazing effect and a joy to watch.
rulez added on the 2009-08-08 23:16:24 by Wade Wade
Wonderful use of an existing effect for something original and nice :)

btw: first demo ever using a classical music soundtrack?
:D

Different.

Great single effect demo.

Very original, but more than one effect would of course be preferred.
rulez added on the 2009-08-08 23:36:33 by Serpent Serpent
Ripped music and art, one effect.

However, that one effect goes very well with the music. I dunno. Pig.
Liked it very much...using the Van Gogh picture with its swirly sky was a neat idea. Only criticism: some of the fluid scenes looked too random...would have loved to see some more interesting shapes.

Original indeed. Can't decide if it's "WTF?" or awesome yet. So the pig for now. :)

great idea and realisation (sure, it could have been better, but well...).

Extrathumb for the edit-mode, nice demoish bonus.

Brilliant!

Classic music doesn't get enough credit in da demoscene.
rulez added on the 2009-08-09 01:15:39 by Salinga Salinga
single effect, looks good, but not really a demo.
added on the 2009-08-09 01:23:25 by blala blala
Nice idea, nice music, but not much variety.
This could have been so much better... Normally,
I'd give a piggy, but since it's a firsty, motivational thumb up!

loved it. really loved it. there were a bunch of demos this year that wanted to win and were biting other peoples styles, this one just didn't seem to care and that was refreshingly honest

hmm, here on 9600m GT it says (command prompt):
Quote:
incomplete fbo 36054
GLerror: (zgl::RenderTexture::Init) enumeratore non valido (1280)
GLerror: (Demo::Init) unknown (1286)


And only the background color is visible and some circles/particles...

One old effect with ripped music and art. Boo.
sucks added on the 2009-08-09 03:10:15 by teel teel
teel: at first I thought the same but the music and art are Creative Commons, also they are given credits which makes it perfectly valid and legal and not "ripped". as truck said "maybe unusual" but certainly not ripped.

I think this was really really boring and long. eventhough the artsy concept could have worked.

really enjoyed it...great way to start the compo! I second what AstronautStebo says.

good effect and music :D
rulez added on the 2009-08-09 03:33:19 by dairos dairos
Refreshingly original, although towards the end it struggled to find enough variation to sustain the entire piece of music (which is understandable... it's not like you could ask the musician to re-cut it).

I don't think an original soundtrack would have improved on this at all, unless it was an original classical soundtrack - the concept just wouldn't have been as interesting if it was visuals synced with an ambient / chillout track or something.

(btw: no, it's not the first demo to use classical music...)

what Salinga and Evilpaul said.

I really liked this one.

Ok, I'm sorry, Wade liked it, I must have been wrong. It must suck.
innovative

Decent fluidsim, but the Van Gogh-scan is totally out of place, and it went on for too long.
added on the 2009-08-09 08:28:08 by gloom gloom
one effect which isnt that interesting. the way van gogh was used just sucked.

this reminded me of the winamp plugin compo that was held few years back.

I thought that Van Gogh graphic was made by some total n00b graphician. So thumb up for that :)

Stood out nicely in the competition.

I liked it because it did not feel like being punched repeatedly in the balls or treated like a moron.

I would also give credit to the coder, because scoring such an effect for the whole demo while keeping it interesting, even with the great support of a.vivaldi is quite an achievement.

A bit long, but I like Vivaldi, so...

Technically that's correct, but still doesn't make it any less lame :p
added on the 2009-08-09 11:18:31 by teel teel
ripped music. ripped graphics. and a 2d fluid effect on gpu, which doesn't exactly scream out "originality" for me. plus some seriously bad color choices.

no thanks.
sucks added on the 2009-08-09 11:23:04 by ryg ryg
Just white screen (ie depending on nvidia-only api) with music by vivaldi. Wonder how much beer it took to get it through the jury.. ;)
And what ryg said.

Too much PD content (and the Van Gogh didn't fit in at all) but I did like the effect. It didn't really get boring, surprisingly. But next time, make a little more stuff.
added on the 2009-08-09 11:59:04 by DiamonDie DiamonDie
As flawed or "lame" as it might be, why the hell not. It's more entertaining than all the faceless, generic ASD-inspired demos.
rulez added on the 2009-08-09 12:52:15 by tomaes tomaes
What a beauty! You should have used some other music, though.

gasman: Good to know... I don't know why but for some strange reason i tought moped was some kind of cheap jokeprod. Which it is Not :)

Problem with 9600m GT resolved by installing the latest forceware drivers (runs 3 fps but, ok).

Imo Van Gogh fits perfectly. And for a moment I tought the demo was going to show some procedural Van Gogh painting, aftert all VG it's flow'ish too... :)

Very refreshing and more enjoyable that most of nowaday prods!

By the way, Antonio Vivaldi rules forever!

Pretty effect, but it's a bit of a stretch to call this a demo, especially when there's not enough original content to fill even a 4k.
added on the 2009-08-09 18:01:52 by jobe jobe
absolutely not my taste. the weakest demo from the compo.

lovely !! (especially the starry night part)
Some more effects of this quality + nice tracked tune would have been even better (imho)

looks somewhat nice but lacks content. boring as well.

One effect "demo", a demo is design+graphics+music+code.

one obsolete fx + ripped music and art = pile of smelly shit.
stiil looks nice, but thumb down for being so overrated.

Honestly, for me this one is the most surprising demo from Assembly'09 which definitely has the best outcome/inputs ratio in the compo (less man-hours, more visual/audio impression). Not so impressive as Assembly 2004 invitation by Moppi Productions, but made on the same way.
