a _very_ reserved thumb up.

werkkzeug does some things _very_ well but is highly lacking in the sync/design department.

or i just can't use it properly ;-)

rulez for the sole fact of releasing it!
although i was almost a bit disappointed..
i always thought of it as THE tool..
but afterall even farbrausch-coders seem to be plain human lazy demo-coders.. ;))

Guess I commented a dub earlier, so here I go agian:

This tool, along with addict, was my number one inspiration when developing my own tool. It's extremely powerfull, and yet not a total pain in the ass to use.

Finally it's possible to see one of the best tools around in action.

what about source code?
especially for http://xdata.org.ru
Every group has a demo tool, i have vrstudio, we have also smode. I believe making such a well designed, complete and efficient tool such as wz1 is really harder than some believe. Just look at the resulting demos and you will clearly understand what I'm talking about.
Also when I saw the ASM03 video, I really understood that chaos and his dudes has something I wasn't able to express clearly, known as "turn around times".
In short, this is really interesting, but I bet no one will be able to do better than what fr did with it anyway.
Thank you guys, you are great.

It looks so good and has a tutorial too. I might have a look at it just out of curiosity. I was very amazed by the big ammount of work behind this thing. I always thought that the demoscene is about coding demos, not applications. This is too much work for me, I am going back to the CPC! :)
rulez added on the 2004-06-17 09:43:17 by Optimus Optimus
after playing around with this for an hour I can say it's very well designed. ok, i can't use it well (and probably never want to), but the productions made with this proves the possiblities of .werkkzeug. likely the 2nd best demotool, right after the demopaja.
rulez added on the 2004-06-17 11:43:34 by shadez shadez
At first sight it is not very intuitive, but after spending some time with it i find it easy to use the GUI. I like that store and load thing so i can reuse structures without filling up the whole screen :)

Not the best user interface, but that is not a bad thing actually...there is so much possibilites hidden here that it`s funny to explore this demotool :)
rulez added on the 2004-06-17 12:05:55 by Zplex Zplex
Thanks for FR for letting the scene have a peak at their tool! The whole operator stacking concept is really interesting, and it is good to see it in action. I dislike the custom GUI, however, since many of my favorite Windows key shortcuts don't work. I expect many people to build on these concepts and make some really nice tools.

Just clicked right through the tutorial, but from this it looks like a very mighty tool...
Well, what I don't like is the syncing stuff and that it seems to be not expendable on your own, like say add a new pixel shader or a function of your own

still great tool, respects for all the effort!

Sigh, stop comparing things that can't be compared. This ain't no lame "demo maker"; it's all a step beyond that. But you're probably too stupid to see any of that, just as you're too stupid to produce anything in the years you've been laming around.

Choke on your goddamn Amiga, fool.

besides that, werkkzeug1 is impressive.

Awesome. But of course this is a (hugely powerful) demomaking tool. I think the comparison with TRSI's demo maker was somewhat appropriate.

Respect to Chaos. Its a superb interface and just a jaw droppingly simple to use method of constructing demos.

It's funny to see how certain "oldschoolists" or those who relentlessly romanticize it fail to place things in the right perspective. We've been moving on you know.

Got the tool yesterday, and by last night I was already starting to make sense of how it works. Fairly easy to learn and quite powerful, since a couple of REALLY GOOD demos were made with it.
rulez added on the 2004-06-25 10:43:22 by Iwudacus Iwudacus
very nice tool indeed. I've had a reasonable play with it, and I like the way it works. Only thing i really miss in it is the ability to do more complex linking than the basic stacking.

Setting up the camera sucks serious ass! And timing is based on 4/4 only. The one thing I've noticed about Werkkzeug is it's really only optimal for "stick it in the center and rotate to techno" style demos, which is exactly what I'm trying *not* to do.

I am a frustrated boy.

added on the 2004-08-22 05:13:35 by Shifter Shifter
i must say with werkkzeug is it possible to make high quality looking demos, without any coding knowledge.
All people who says that coding is all about a demo, i can only say without a musican and a good gfxler and without a good idea it will give no demos...
So don`t cry every time that only coder make it possible to produce good demos.
That is totaly bullshit...

I must say you need many knowledge to produce with werkkzeug good intros and demos and not really everyone can to that...

I love werkkzeug, because it is the only real democreating tool that really works and the system behind werkkzeug is great, too.

If the other coders are to dump to write there own tool, then they must be still and don't say shit about good Tools ;)

You can hate me for my mind, but thats what i am think...

**FREE YOUR MIND** keep that words and think about...

to the werkkzeug team, keep up your good work, and give a fuck to all those envious people...

GOD i love this thing! i use it all the time. i wish i could show u some stuff i made. to compromise between the last two comments, you should create a werkkzeug that has a text editor for creating custom operators, like "Vertex Shader" with a "Fluid Mesh" bit, or HDR lighting in lights, or dynamic occlusion lighting. like an open werkkzeug, that way you don't have to go in and edit and compile your code any time you make an operator. e-mail me if it's a good idea

NOW it is time for posting some words bout farbrausch coolest stuff ever,

TO ALL the fr, members, the big comunity,

since 2004 as farbrausch released their werkkzeug1 tool, they promised to make support, and updates...

they did not...

we followed them all the years, from party to party, in hope to get positive vibs from them.....

they did not!


they PRAY bout their new tool(s)... but nothing is posted still then this time....

farbrausch splitt the scene, and killed good coders work...

not this is time to do so....

we have build many MODS, from their gloury tool, and will update it for them, because, they CAN speak, very
glory, bout it (like Albert EINSTIEN with his ATOM BOMB!)....

the level is the same....

what fr. did is very enourmus, they said...

they have done very nice stuff with their tool, hope one time they will get the german "Bundes VerdienstKreuz",
for their great work....

Never mind....

the paper is also blah, blah, like their own bibel.....

next what we want to mod, is the v2m sound system, making an bugfree update.....

so cheers! you must not release something, in the future, we will do it for you!
rulez added on the 2006-09-05 20:09:42 by sziller sziller
I was very surprised as Farbrausch have released this back then. I had thought that the release of Werkkzeug would be a blessing to the scene... Unfortunately, it was not.

One would think that it allows a group without a coder to do something. But in fact, everything that i have seen come out of it has at least the same basic flaw: the tool needs good hardware understanding to get some proper result out of it, so if some individual or group without a coder uses it, they produce poop. And when there is a decent coder in a group, it is below the groups' honor to use that - in part because everything that can be done with this tool has already been shown in and out. Plus a great deal of experience as a graphician is requiered from prior work with "normal" software packages. And decent experienced graphician unable to find himself a proper group... HALLO? So all that is released with it is and stays poop.

And then there are those kids whom this makes consider themselves "1337 dEMOsCENERs". Almost worse than those who get Darkbasic or "professional" Gamemaker and want to do better than Konami, ID, Valve, whonot.
