I liked the effects and transitions even though the effects froze, especially I liked the cubes and the 3D rasterbar :-) hehehe!

soo oldschool, almost megademo in 8k! :)
the second part with more c64ish vibes was pure love, greetings part was pure <3
first part was good as well but the music was not really that fitting imo

do i remember requesters popping up while the "3star&chains" effect was shown at the party? ..eightk'us interruptus i say =)

very nice stuff m8, it was lovely to see you once again this year!

The requesters popping up was LAS derping...he accidentally Alt-Tabbed out! ;)
When this happens to me on my machine the intro runs very sloppy from that moment...so normally i restart! ;) Also the resolution seemed to be fucked...but maybe that was just me, had a very steep angle to the bigScreen! ;)
shiny stuff :D but the look of the transitions kills the flow imho. tune is a bit weird for my taste. too much to nag about from my side to thumbs it ups. but definitely not thumbs down. so piggie it is. und wegen deinem ball solltest du mal zum arzt gehen :D
Was this the one that was literally the same as this but longer and with more excruciating scrollers?

Gargaj: it is.
Just to counter the last two comments with information about what this really is:

11 different Parts with Reflections+Refractions in 6 Ray-Bounces (thus the generic geometry! No early abortion of refraction-rays as everyone else does it!)
+8 different Transition-Effects
+Post-Effect: Depth of Field
+Post-Effect: Bokeh-Splats (size based on depth)
+Post-Effect: HypnoGlow
+a complete Charset with 64 characters, 8*16 pixels each
+6 different Text-Screens (48 chars each)
+2 Scrolltexts (128 chars + 128 chars(25 used))
+2 soundtracks in one (188 bpm, 72 patterns, many many notes!)
-> The first 8K ever to include an entire 4K in it (which is just 4 of 11 parts :p)

The whole thing took several months to make (including a complete new basecode, now everything is in DirectX11 instead of DirectX9, which i still used before, so people with WinXP could still watch it) and i wasn´t satisfied with the outcome myself, mostly because of my bad soundtrack, which was meant to be used with a completely different concept i didn´t use in the end.

Also just today i finally found out what bugged me about the visuals...i somehow managed to set the light-colors wrongly, they were like red/cyan instead of the orange/teal i normally use. (now that i fixed that it looks better again, atleast in my eyes, but all parts would need to get retweaked once again, so there will be no final i guess! ;) )

In this Compo i am really happy placing that high with it, as i am still not happy with the outcome myself as said.
I am really happy the compo had them many entries and a better quality than the last 2 years...this way i can try to do better next year again atleast! :)

8K is the best category there is for coders! I love it! If people don´t realize it yet, they don´t look close enough and also the possibilities aren´t used that much yet, i can see how 8Ks still feel almost the same as 4Ks, but they aren´t!
Video please!

it rulez that you try to push the borders of 8k, and you do it with style
