awesome experience with 3d glasses on the big screen
rulez added on the 2005-06-12 19:10:13 by dodke dodke
It didn't do much to me, perhaps I need 3D glasses. I loved the music though.

video plz ;D i have red/blue glasses

same disclaimer as with dopplerdefekt, watching anaglyph intros without 3d glasses is like watching them without sound. you get less than half the experience.

If it was 2D I'd probably dislike it for being just another flyby.. But JESUS this looked good on the big screen! My pants almost turned into laundry.
rulez added on the 2005-06-12 19:23:40 by break break
Perhaps the coolest thing I have seen during this year so far.
rulez added on the 2005-06-12 19:43:25 by dairos dairos
Dunno... I prefer Dopplerdefekt simply because there's more stuff trying to poke your eyeballs out. In this intro most of the 3d is simply flying out to the sides of one's peripheral vision.

It' sort of neat because demos requiring 3d glasses are rare, but this was tedious to watch and listen. I wanted to have my eyes poked out with a pointed stick!
now lemme dig up my glasses.
added on the 2005-06-12 19:57:36 by Gargaj Gargaj
Without the glasses, this propably wouldn't have been much, but damn this rocked on the bigscreen. It seemed like it was coming all over me. Cool music too :)

awesome on the big screen, still looks good at home. great.
rulez added on the 2005-06-12 20:05:02 by ld0d ld0d
Great experience with the glasses, worth a thumb up. Nevertheless, it wouldn't be so special without the feeling of stuff hitting your forehead. Extra points for the spacey tune.

Unfortunately I don't have anaglyphic 3d glasses, but this is pretty atmospheric even without. I especially loved the music. I so wish I'd seen it on the screen...

yeh.. visuals may be anaglyphic, but they are actually quite boring for farbrausch-standards. soundtrack is nice tho. so a piggie.
is there a way to make 3d glasses?
added on the 2005-06-12 21:00:56 by imbusy imbusy
Maybe I should have watched it with proper anaglyph glasses. Without them is definitely NOT a good intro, and is worth a thumb down (compared to FR standards).
Music saves it.
added on the 2005-06-12 21:09:40 by pan pan
when watched with 3d-glasses and on the bigscreen this is the most impressive intro i have seen in many years.
big big BIG respect.

don't even try to watch it without the 3d-glasses.

rulez added on the 2005-06-12 21:17:26 by nosfe nosfe
Nice intro, but I didn't like the music, and it was a bit too low-poly for me. Good 3D exprecience though.

This one really worked with 3d-glasses. This really worked on big screen and best 3d-experience at party.
rulez added on the 2005-06-12 23:06:46 by blueflame blueflame
finally demos for anaglyph. I am always searching for demos that work in anaglyph also (nVidia's stereo switch of its drivers makes it mostly possible - unfortunatly not with FR engines).
rulez added on the 2005-06-12 23:26:36 by Salinga Salinga
Then don't bother ranting. Go get the glasses NOW!
rulez added on the 2005-06-12 23:37:45 by stonda stonda
I watched it with my shutter glasses (ELSA Revelator + nVidia 3D drivers) and i must say that other farbrausch demos (e.g. poem to a horse or especially theta) look even nicer in 3D imho. But for people who are not used to 3D this one must be quite amazing :)
Small hint: The nVidia 3D drivers have an analglyph mode where you can even define the colors of your glasses. therfore everybody with an nVidia card can watch many 'normal' demos in 3D.
added on the 2005-06-12 23:53:57 by beavis77 beavis77
Watched it with glasses here at home and it didn't do it for me at least. We've all seen anaglyphic 3D before, heck even farb-rausch have done it before, and better. So relying on that alone doesn't make a good production. As several people stated above, this is nothing special without the 3D glasses and it's nothing special with them either. Piggie.

Hey, what are those credits doing above my keyboard? :-)

Those damn glasses always give me a headache, but it was worth it. Don't watch it without 'm. And I love the music.

I watched now this on home and I must say that 3d-illusion does not work very good on monitor. In big screen it worked much much better.

Works perfect on my monitor, nice intro.
rulez added on the 2005-06-13 01:52:30 by [self-ban] [self-ban]
I like the beginning and the end, but the rest is just average....relying on analglyph to carry interest instead of content or FX. Don't get me wrong, I love analglyph demos, but I'm still waiting for a great demo that also happens to offer a 3D glasses option.

Actually, this is possible now. A couple years ago I downgraded to the nVidia drivers KAi mentioned that include analglyph support in the registry. I could only get one demo to run in that mode: Poem to a Horse. Now that is an experience. If I ever get that mode working again, I'll have to capture it.
added on the 2005-06-13 04:35:58 by Jerware Jerware
"relying on anaglyph to carry interest" ..

how about some of you guys noticing what party this was meant for, and also what the main point of that party was?

the intro itself has a lot of empty scenes that stay too long on screen, but the music kicks ass, and the 3d has been done well enough for me to thumb it up.

but stop watching it without the glasses damnit :)
rulez added on the 2005-06-13 06:48:23 by leijaa leijaa
bwahaha... this thread is great. Another nice example of how ignorant and fat the scene became.

Nice intro btw. My only criticism would be the low poly count of many scenes.
rulez added on the 2005-06-13 07:19:28 by Stelthzje Stelthzje
Fuckings to myself for accidentally leaving my glasses at the party place.

Was great with bigscreen+glasses anyway.
rulez added on the 2005-06-13 07:24:53 by jobe jobe
pretty average. i'm sure it's nice with 3d glasses, but since i haven't got any the gimmick is void with me. the music was nice, but the rest reminded me of 1998 low-poly 3dfx-demos.
added on the 2005-06-13 07:44:50 by gloom gloom
Leia: Looks like we need to go thumb down all the entries from all other parties for not using 3d.

Course it might also help if the party name showed as '3d' not '2005' (:

Anyway. On the bigscreen there were times when I wanted to stand up and move to another part of the room to see what it looked like from there. At one point, there was a dark spot just above my head that prevented me from seeing above it. My mouth was open from about 3 seconds into this demo until the end. Absolutely what the party was meant to have - demos that used 3d. Not the best 3d demo ever, that'll come in future, but the one that caused people at the party to go 'fucking hell yes, that's what I came for.'

One of the jawdroppers at the party! Clearly a lot of thought and design has been put in it and it shows. <3

"Relying on analglyph to carry interest instead of content or FX"
It IS an effect.. and one hell of an effect I might add :)

I'll say it here once and for all for all the Simulaatio 3D entries:
You can't judge them until you've seen them on a BIG screen with red/cyan glasses on (the effect works a lot better on a big screen than on a monitor). It's like juding a demo after only seeing a low-res MPEG of it.

hmm... okay-ish without 3d glasses, gotta see it again when i got myself some. music is nice, though

some scene was smooth.
however, it was not best in fr-prods.
I want to see again with 3d glass.:)

Good, looking forward to watch it with the glasses. Nice credits effect.

grrrr, after directx9, now it's directx9c wich is required (btw that means dx9 was not good, coz is there is a 9c version now :D)
I haven't really liked any FR prods for several years now, but this one was really good, even if mostly due to the great use of anaglyphic 3D. I highly recommend acquiring (or even building) a pair of red-blue glasses somehow.

Didnt yet find my old Fr dopperdefekt tum2k2 glasses[tm] but I liked the intro anyway. Typical Visualice stuff. As a general scene production it's pretty great and I like the distinct choosing of colors but I know that Visualice can do better.

ok, dx9C installed (i don't know why, effects looks simple)

FR did it again with Dopplerdefekt, then I found some glasses in a friend but I couldn't say anything, perhaps I wasn't looking too focused and I was also doing it in a hurry because my friend could possibly not want to put demos in his computer or he wanted the glasses or we were on holidays so I had no time to test it with my own pace, now I have to find where can I buy such glasses and test it with my own pace in my room. Perhaps I will see something really cool now..

There was a demo with simple 3d star scroll blue/red once in Hornet, I think I have found that, but still no glasses back then. But that would possibly not show much..

Not what I'd expect from FR (last good enjoyfull prods for the masses must be their both BP03 releases and perhaps later the BP04 invitation (I still remember the tune and brings me tears because I was there too =)),. then I have seen hardly something that I liked as much as their last good things.

But there is one thing I like in this demo and it is the music. Makes an atmosphere with visualice's demo style and those smooth paced distorted camera trips ;)

It still gets a rules for using the 3D glasses trick once again (but I have to buy the glasses to enjoy this!) and definitelly the lovely music..

ryg : cryptoburners made probably the 1st demo using this technik, but without mapped textures ;)

in fact, i was disappointed by this farbrausch demo because i had hope to see coloured textures, i think it is possible to have colours instead of grey/blue/red stuff

rulez added on the 2005-06-14 23:31:34 by root root
music is good if not very good.
visuals are.. visualiceish :)
but as far as it's not the first 3d intro from fr, nor is it an original concept itself, i'll judge by overall feeling of visuals ( still much respect to all the coders behind wz, v2 etc).
comparing to average of disribution of other fr releases quality, this sucks. it could have done it as minus-release imo ( not for the music ).
so a thumb down, as far as personally i am pretty disappointed :(
sucks added on the 2005-06-16 12:58:37 by apricot apricot
Making your own red-blue glasses ain't too hard, it just requires ordinary red and blur transparent plastic sheets (should be available from any stationery-shop nearby), and if you don't want to hold them in front of your eyes by hand, you need some thicker paper and some glue or a stapler, but seriously, it's not THAT complicated.
