dune's particles over haplo's picture in square/pulse, pattern 39,40,41.
and well maybe many other effects but mostly involving orange productions..

something i really like is the voxel-twist effect seen in various demos (can't name any now, sorry :)
the spiked cylinder in gateways/trauma, the plasma in krestyron/crest&oxyron and the zooming in parts/oxyron, ofcourse there is lots of cool stuff...

That wierd thing in 303. And those other wierd things in 303.

those particle layers in 73ms are rather sweet

i dont think there is one that is THE best.
but there's so many i like. i enjoy the mirrors + particles in the end of hyperventilation, the weird plasma at the end of non stop ibizia experience, the wicked grid field thing in technology2, tunnel + vector stuff in the day the earth was bårn, realtime raytracing in various prods (i.e heaven7 & fresnel2), the effect shown on the screenshot (here on pouet) for return of the braineating metaballs. bla bla bla etc, etc.

Not to give glory to my own crew, but the cognac glass in transgression 3 is really something...

On CPC, Overflow's effects, each one beeing a onescreener, optimized and overscan and full of hard techniques reaching the limits of CPC! These are:
Backtro (Tunnel effects. It's amazing if you know the whole bunch of soft and hard techniques and inovations behind it,. well that's with other parts of overflow too :), Shadow of the Beast preview and perhaps something I forgot...
Even if I use to prefer more software fx from other demos, I think that these hardware ones are more impressive and fullscreen and complete...
Another effect that was so special and impressed me that time on CPC was A lesson of coding by Antoine
Ohh.. I also love the 3d lisseasouz as an effect (even if it's slow) part from Digital Orgasm by Prodatron/Symbiosis..
There may be more, I would like to mention, in demos like Face Hugger's ultimate megademo, Voyage93, Divine, Unique,. cause the CPC released mostly oneparts with 1 effect show, rather than trackmos,.. but I should stop here...

I forgot to write about the fx. SOTB had a fullscreen overscan smooth parallax scroller. A lesson of coding had a software rotozoomer..

On C64, I was also impressed by Graham's effect, the best one beeing the smooth zoomer/distorter in Parts. I was wondering for a long time how has he done this so fast and great looking like a jelly, but ok I don't know that much the capabilities of C64..
I could mention more on C64 but I don't know where to start...

The blurred rotozoomer of World of Commodore

plasmas are always nice
fake translucent plasmas in Second Reality, plasma on a cube in the same..
Fractal Zoomer in Crystal Dreams 2
Rotating Bill Gates head in Verses (Haha!)
Giant 3d bee in Stars

It's a pitty I don't have time to add screenshots, it would be lovely to do that on this thread,. but nobody does it and I also don't have to much online time now... :(

For me the best effect (not hard to code but looks very cool) is probably the radialblurred stream of cubes in the 3DMark2001 demo.
