Chaos sits down to make a new engine - take #7!

The prod is nice, certainly works as a proof-of-concept; the background is the only thing that I wish was different.

sure, it's a "one effect" demo, but it works well enough for that. love the intricacy and the organic appeal of some of the patterns. I wonder what's coming next =)

The procedure entry point CreateDXGIFactory2 could not be located in the dynamic link library dxgi.dll

Needs win10 I guess?

Yes, but more like worms. Try get in touch with Team 17.

a better farbrausch prod in a long time, but the mouse should be hidden tho'
rulez added on the 2017-06-21 09:23:01 by citrus citrus
Wow, that's incredibly smooth! Looks great, and the tune is ace. Definitely didn't notice any lack of esc support! :)

Video? I don't have DX12 support.

Things I learned during the production of the music at UC8:

-the iPad makes for a great midi piano. Here's a damn fine way of getting midi and audio through USB: http://www.s-r-n.de/midile/

-Excessive automation editing in Ableton is a major pain in the ass. There's a lot of potential for improvement.

I'd like to see this reimagined as a dark ambient piece, but it's cool as it is. But also what gargaj said about the background.
rulez added on the 2017-06-21 12:27:54 by Preacher Preacher
Fucking excellent, love the music.

Also the background is just right ;)
rulez added on the 2017-06-21 12:31:52 by noby noby
nice one effect demo! :)

Nice tune, proper hissing there too.
For the visuals.. its missing something for me. Cant just put my finger on it.

First of all: welcome back chaos!

And about the prod: extremely stylish effect and fitting music koolness!

Now keep it up, almost can't wait to see further progressions of this new engine & effects coming :). A definite thumb up for a strong comeback restart etc. celebration

Nice effect & track!
rulez added on the 2017-06-21 13:56:13 by Saga Musix Saga Musix
At first view I thought awesome background, pretty nice choice. The music sounds extremely professional for this ?genre?. And the effect is nice, good choice of parameters, too.

great tune, nice rendering, successful systems test complete

Apparently it's possible to draw lots of stuff with dx12
Yep, no DirectX 12 in W7 so I had to watch it on YouTube. It was decent. :)
added on the 2017-06-22 03:52:43 by AntDude AntDude
It's great to have a release after such a long time. Yes, it's 64 bit, DX12 on latest Windows10 Version only. No use doing anything else when starting from scratch.

Unfortunately the new demo system is far from finished. Did you notice the complete lack of post processing? Actually, the lack of anything but the one effect? Yes, that's all there is for now :-)

Without the music to give it away, I would have tipped this to be a 4k playing around with vertex shaders with no space for postprocessing. The movements and cameras are nice, though, and the music provides a fitting atmosphere.

Nothing impressive at all. Pretty childish job, to be honest.

Single Effect Melkung™
Really like the music, and the reflection on the ribbons. Latter reminds me on old group logos somehow. The blue background is not my cup of beer, but after playing around and trying other colours myself - didn't find a better solution either. So, geil - endlich wieder Farbflausch <3

Real stylish and organic looking style, music complements it well. Some sort of background action/scenery might have worked well but I think the blue background suits it sometimes too.
rulez added on the 2017-07-05 10:40:03 by Revenant Revenant
the non-matching background color and over-all uninspired visual composition is a thumbs down but then rp came in like a wrecking ball and saved the prod with a song that worths TWO thumbs up so by the end of the day it's a thumbs up over-all.

Proof of concept it is.

It's too bad Microsoft uses everything it can to force everyone into their spyware, spontaneous-reset OS. That's just techno-politics. You shouldn't support that when writing a new engine. Now is a good time to write an engine for Vulkan instead.
added on the 2017-07-13 14:32:15 by Photon Photon
trippin' my balls off with this, maybe is just the music but still quite cool!

Reminds me of Staying Pictures which is probably a good thing.
Just wish you had spend some more time on polishing.

Nice demo, have seen it at Demoscensklubben in Stockholm and in MDT9k but not thumbed it up yet

Insane soundtrack. Also nice to finally see someone other than BeRo releasing Farbrausch prods. :p

Yes, but more like worms. Try get in touch with Team 17.

When creating a new engine, maybe go the Vulkan way?
