i somehow like the music, but the engine is a bit slow for 320x200 (compared to heaven7), and it's only boring sphere scenes, kolor could have done better on this one!

Raytracing (or fake raytracing), that looks butt-ugly and really slow and boring.

well the raytracing looks not bad, but it seems slower than heaven 7 and the music is in my opinion pure torture (but this is a matter of taste -> robotriot :) )

whoops... the final version is quite different! they changed the music (for good) or at least the musicreplay now works :). finalversion looks great!

Damn! I couldn't run it in this computer! The first time I have ran it, I remembered beeing very slow,.. but I wanted to test it again here,. perhaps the computer was slow. But couldn't...

So i will just write the right URL:

whouah, a good raytrace motor for this intro, very impressive extrudes spacecut with raytrace, a good code but a little bit slow, music is not very good and there is no gfxs, but it's a must see for the novative effects
Blah. Expected more.

You're into Kolor or you're not. They slowly grew on me, thanks to this little prod. It's not Heaven 7, but a sound technical showcase nonetheless. Have a watch.

An OK raytracing intro.

New conceptions rock. Eating carnages too. Fresnel/2 is a LOT better, but what the hell, i like it.

i actually also liked the soundtrack of the party version. could it be that there is a bug
in the interpolation blow up when the interpolation takes place between to different objects ? the space in between seems so flickerish, not as smooth as in the sequel. i adore this production anyway!

Agreed w/ KB.

thanks for the flowers and the critizism... =)
the party version music was actually my first pc production music, in colloboration with looza/tdr, and we did it in 2 hours at the party place on some third person's comp. kenny beltrey did a tune for this one originally, but it didn't fit sizewise, so as we were sitting eating pizza all together (prymer, shiva, looza, me and some other guys), shiva told looza and me to do smth, and so we did =)... it was really fun, nuff respect to looza (dunno if he reads here anyway...), i learned from him quite a lot while doing this coop... the music in the final version is from looza only, and i like it a lot..

Very big sucks for the party version, but very-very big rules for the final ! Good work !

The raytracing engine is top-notch, the scenes are interesting, and the music is OK. The colors are a but tasteless, but nothing to worry about.

Wow, this was awesome, Reminds me of the work of Astral-Alpha And the reflection was the best.

nice refrection effect.
sweet music.

The music in the final is very nice and the algorhitms are quite good thus H7 is at least a step further.

just went back to watching it... good times!
it was done almost exclusively at the party, and had some really nice code for it's time. the tracer with hw interpolation was fresh, all the textures are custom wavelet encoded, the samples are compressed with our own dct. we learned a lot doing this one! also the audio was done in 2h or so by people we just met at the party! good times, good memories :) not as polished as many newer prods are, but for me doing this intro was really great scene spirit.
added on the 2009-09-25 05:40:17 by shiva shiva
indeed, that was one of my fondest scene experiences. while eating pizza prymer hooked me up with looza and then we had two hours to make a soundtrack without having any samples or even a machine - everything had to be organized superquickly. and during that music session i learned a lot about ft2... and then we went to siriuz' flat and worked the soundtrack inside the intro...
wow, ten years ago!

I like it better than Fresnel 2 as well.. probably for the color, music, and ability to watch the scenes for more than a second. :)
