Caught a good bit of it on the Nordlicht stream.

I'm very sorry for the crashes, will be working on a final soon.

Ok, las has found the cause of the problems. :) I will be generating new binaries tonight, and will post back here as soon as I've updated the download link.

In the meantime, YouTube.

Even steven hawkings can't explain this!

In space no one can hear you play music ;-)

The fixed version can now be downloaded! The download link is the same. Enjoy :)

Works now. Nice :)

Just one not-that-so simple effect. Pretty amazing, I love it!

Great stuff.
A bit sad it doesn't fit in 8K (or 4K ^^).

Finally some Sync-Stuff again! Too bad its just the same thing allover! ;)
But really nice to watch and listen!
Did you use NoteBuffers? As i just fiddled around with em, they seem to be almost for free! Was like 30 bytes in a 4k here, INSTANT-crinkler-compressed, so i guess it is even less of a byte-waste if you let it iterate a lot! (But also my Test-Music is as repetitive as it gets, so it could be misinformation i am providing here! ;) )
I think you did it without noteBuffers, but a slight modification in your 4klang-clone...or maybe just with the normal EnvelopeBuffer, triggering stuff on different instruments! Anyway, result rocks!

@hArDy. it's the note buffer.

@wullon: This intro is actually a quick production, started 2 weeks before nordlicht. I didn't care much for the size, since the nordlicht compo was labeled "Size-restricted", with a maximal file size of 64k. I'm very sure that this can be fit into 8k, given enough time and effort.

Thanks for info! :)
Any intention to maybe offer information on bytesCount wasted using the NoteBuffer? I guess you didn´t even care about comparing as you didn´t have to count bytes at all! :)
Maybe tell me at Evoke, when my Intro will be done already, so you dont give away informations you could regret later! :p
I'm very sure that this can be fit into 8k, given enough time and effort.

And i thought it´s <4k all the time...where and why did you waste so many bytes? Don´t get me wrong, i am never into sth like showing off someone is not as good as others, i am just wondering, why this ONE effect didn´t fit in 4k here!
@xTr1m: I see. That's a really really cool quickprod then, really nice concept and execution, I watched it a couple of times already with is quite rare for <10ko prods!

@hArDy. It's the sum of things. 19 shaders. d3dcompile_43 fallback in case _47 is not available. 8 mipmapped textures. Append/Consume buffers for particles. Stateful particle system with buffer swapping. Line extrusion for particles in the GS. 40 floats synced by GNU-rocket (passed through to the shader via constant buffer). GNU-rocket player (usync). VS/GS/SO/ConstantBuffer pipeline for in-GPU camera matrix generation. 3D fbm. 4klang note and envelope buffers (4 used in shader). Complex music with loads of instruments. ShaderMinifier called with --no-renaming (due to some bugs there).

As I said, lots of that can be optimized away so that it all fits in 8k.

Very beautiful concept, and what hArDy said: Great to see some cool sync again! The tune, besides driving the visuals nicely, was very good in itself as well. Cool!

But ugh, some of the colours are ugly. ;)

"Particles? Ok, I have to watch this realtime rather than on YT" :D I was not disappointed, looks really nice! Particle systems are fun ;)

I'd have preferred a much darker or black background, but the synchronised particle effects are totally awesome! I like the music too!

It's OK. I like its tune though. ;)

Nice effect and music

left me cold. but since the music is nice no thumbs down.
Great music. Visuals are rather monotonous, but the sync is good.
