(Demoscene) April 2011: A Great Month for Demomakers (Revision 2011, TG11)



Demoscene - April 2011


April 2011 has been a great month for demomakers: a bunch of cool prods has been released during Revision 2011 and The Gathering, the latest demoparties. Many famous demogroups were present: fairlight, nuance, farbrausch, rebels or razor 1911. Here is a selection of some prods…


And don’t forget (for people discovering demos for the first time):
Demos look better in realtime than on Youtube!


PC-05: Flux by Panda Cube (PC demo)

This demo is designed for quad-core or better CPUs. We wanted to make use of
multi-threading. What’s the use of having multi-threading engine and then
making a demo that runs on slow CPUs? Also, as the GPU has to do some of the
computing it should be quite fast, too.

If your PC is too slow this demo will not only run at low framerates, it
will break apart terribly. This is because many scenes involve physical
simulations – you can’t simply drop frames.

Going the whole way, with the CPU calculating something, feeding that into
the GPU, starting a shader, reading it back, running the result through the
CPU to generate some GPU data which is then rendered… yeah!

Out of memory crashes are still likely if you have less than 1GB of video
memory on your graphics card.

Demo was opimized for FULLHD 1920×1080.. use min GForceGtx460 & QuadCore for watching.

…turns out that ray marching through a transparent noise field is quite
computationally expensive – at least the way I do it…
The speech samples are encoded using a (yet?) unfinished speech codec for
4k intros. It’s VBR with about 500 bits per second. This is not quite
state of the art, but we’re getting there.

R E Q U I R E S
we have tested this intro successfully on ATI and NVIDIA systems, but in order
to run fluently (at 60 Hz) you need a top-notch graphics card (as of 2011).
The intro runs fine on windows 7 64bit but might also run on other windows
systems.
The intro uses the same resolution as the desktop, but because the ray marching
is done on a fixed resolution off-screen surface which is then up-sampled, the
desktop resolution has hardly any effect on the overall performance.
We use crinkler for compression – thank you guys for this truly awesome tool


@party invitation 2011 by Nuance (PC demo)

this party invit was coded within 15 days and thus we had no time to test it as
it should have been and code has not been optimized. Anyway, the demo
was coded on ATI RADEON 3100 and should work pretty fine on GTX/GeForce
graphics board it works under windows XP SP3, or 7. untested on windows VISTA
used tools and external libs: CodeBlocks, bass, openGL.

capturing and processing of the animated model on top of the tower was done
with xbox360 kinect using our own tool, megadepth, as presented on tUM 2010.
if you want to try our depth video capture tool or have some questions
regarding kinect, drop me a note! the data directory contains processed
particle animation data, have fun playing around with that!

R E Q U I R E S
we have tested this demo successfully on ATI and INTEL systems, with recent
RADEON and GTX/GeForce graphics boards. this demo requires at least a
GeForce 8800 GTS and a fast dual core machine. please keep your settings low
resolution in this case. good fullHD experience on GTX260 or better.
it works under windows XP SP3, or 7 (SP1). untested on windows VISTA.
