MAiN#5 DEMOPARTY - 1st to 3rd OCTOBER 2010

category: parties [glöplog]
No live rendering, got it :)

But even with a prerendered video is it technically possible to use the high resolution at the center combined with a full screen display? Put another way is there a way to take advantage of the additional pixels in the center?

I have no idea how this might work. For example are we supposed to play a 320x178 video synchronized with a full screen 960x89 video in the background? Or one 320x178 video plus two 400x89 videos playing on the sides? Or one giant 1920x178 video with the appropriate pixels being dropped by the controller?
Live composite in the middle and two 400x89 videos on sides,
or "full screen" 960x89 video are the options we have

So is it possible to render a demo with a 960/89 aspect ratio to 3 separate videos like this:
Code: ------------------------------------------------------------- | | | | | | | | | 400 x 89 | 320 x 178 | 400 x 89 | | | | | | | | | -------------------------------------------------------------

and then play these 3 videos synchronously side by side on the Huge Screen to get the original image back?
possible, but not supported by the compo rules

the rules are very easy and due possible technical problems NOT changeable ...

There will be a HUGESCREEN Compo again, just the compo prices are doubled ...

The Rules :

- playing time max. 5 min
- the demo must run on Windows or a single AVI
- if executable the demo must quit on key ESC
- writing on disk permanently is not permitted
- if executable must have a windowed 960 x 89 version
- if avi it must be a 960x89/25fps single AVI file
- provide an avi (not mp4 not mpg not wmv AVI!) version (960x89) use uncompressed or huffyuv or mjpeg codecs

someone should organize a party in lapland in july, so people would see what it really means to have mosquitoes.

If you support "lapin kulta", sauna, bbq and lakka there (and nice beautiful women), I will be without ANY hesitation!

well, lapin kulta isn't anymore what it used to be since they moved the factories, but sure we can get some for true lapland party.

in lapland, if you don't get killed by polar bears, the mosquitos will eat you alive.

Ha!, but still the locals cope with them quite well, I suppose.

I have just reserved a fast-train ticket (leaving- saturday noon, back- sunday evening): 170e!! =O.... =(

Still hesitate....

sim : OMG from where ? Lapland ?
added on the 2010-09-24 18:45:56 by _H2o_ _H2o_
That's actually that expensive to take a TGV ticket a week before you leave. Trains can be reserved two months in advance, cheap tickets are numbered, you gotta be fast else you pay full price.
I'm thinking of doing a shadow party here in Boston. Glad this party will be streamed. Sorry to miss doing a shadow party for Evoke.
i dont know if its even okay enough for a shadow party ...

h2o: Dude, thx for asking man! From Paris man! From Paris.....I am ready to travel even from almighty Lapland, as you said, even on foot to have a well organised pardey.. will see. Vodka is ready to be taken more than my compo picture... eh...
OK it is late now (and you Markus, wtf are you doing at that time,man?=) gotta propose a sleep to my guests....
