I can't run it on my laptop (the irony :) so that I can upload a screenshot. Can someone do one at the part with the ribbons and fractal (my favorite screen). Thanks :)

Optimus, you managed to make one of the best demos of BP2009.
Congratulations :)

Quite good.
More direction/design next time please ;).

i guess this is what a bits demo would look like if they/he spent more time with modern hardware. :) nothing impressive, but it has its charm, and for this year's compo, it was pretty decent.

I liked the intro with julia starfield and text, and also the screeny part.

Good job Optimus!
I like the Julia-galaxy and the endless ribbon :)

haha ok ill admit i loved it especially the greetz tunnel

and even the optimus-scroller, it was really characteristic

The music was ok. Most of the scenes - except for the screenshot part maybe - felt pretty empty though.

Fully ok!

optimus - finally something from your side that's ok - you even get a thumb for that.

Lose the angst and you'll do fine, you know :) This wasn't half bad but it was kind of lost in the compo among the 3491834 entries.
rulez added on the 2009-04-13 11:33:45 by Preacher Preacher
Actually not bad, but please don't rape physics concepts.
rulez added on the 2009-04-13 11:35:19 by Rouquemoute Rouquemoute
jesus this was boring. Next time show your effects 1/10 of the time.

in all honesty, there are 3 problems with the demo that are fairly easy to fix in the future:

1) totally unimaginative effects - maybe try to focus on an effect showing ONE thing rather than an effect with an overlay of another effect (metaballs with mandelbrot projected upon then and such horrors)

2) Bad timing. Same thing happens for 1 minute.

3) Utterly horrible music. Your brother cannot compose, sorry.

added on the 2009-04-13 19:30:18 by Navis Navis
Trust me, my brother can do much better. Demo music is just not his style of music (Or when I ask him to make me a classic demo music I get something different than what I expect :). And there was the deadline so he decided to give it unfinished.

I thought the juhlia stars were slightly imaginitive. Well not much, but slightly. Most shader demos are just some 3d scenes with tons of layer effects. I think. But thanks anyways for the suggestions.

Optimus: Any music can be demo music. Having something unusual would actually be rather cool.
added on the 2009-04-15 17:13:37 by Preacher Preacher
Yes, I am just speaking with my brother that maybe he should make me his own style of music and then I build a demo upon it, not the opposite way.
added on the 2009-04-15 22:00:35 by Optimonk Optimonk
i like it very much, except for the whiney scroller.
rulez added on the 2009-04-15 22:13:10 by v3nom v3nom
respect, optimus! i think this was quite pleasant. please do not stop making demos, rather take the advices given in this thread to your heart and then make something really cool!
rulez added on the 2009-04-16 00:07:18 by dipswitch dipswitch
the emo scroller was a bit unnecessary, and some effects where a bit too long, but all in all it was nice.

Optimus: don't care about what Navis said he's just a troll =P
Also, if your brother can't do standard demo music, then go with what he does! Some variety in the demoscene won't do no harm for sure!
I like the this new take on oldschool effects.
And like the others said, stop saying your stuff sucks, it gives a very negative feeling to the audience.

Well, have seen demos claiming to be more than mediocre and in the end the fail even to start.

Not bad.

Deserves a thumb.

Nice effects
rulez added on the 2011-01-23 08:49:23 by Corial Corial
I really enjoyed the music. But there is a lack of breaks/bass/sfx whatever where one scene goes into another. The music is too much chilled for what's going on. Overall a neat demo.

Should have won!

Music is pretty boring and the rather simple effects are shown way too long. Still not that bad though, I liked the greetings part.
added on the 2011-01-23 12:47:14 by StingRay StingRay
I must say this isn't nearly as bad as it seems. Sure, it's a piece of shit, but it's a piece of shit with soul :)

End scroller is great too.
rulez added on the 2012-03-04 11:44:39 by noby noby
Well, I think it looks quite good.
