I'd like to believe its realtime, and I want to believe its realtime, but I just have this nagging doubt...
I believe the coders of it (I happen to hang on same irc channel ;), it's realtime. And IIRC it uses quite much the same engine that they (ex-MellowChips) used in Rise.MrTickle wrote:Has anyone disassembled this thing to see if its an animation? It just looks soooo much like a compressed animation rather than realtime.
Ahh cool! Then I remain impressed The textures and scenes are really good. I normally hate all 3D demos, but the combination of very good lighting, textures, scenes, and composition make that demo very impressive indeedjPV wrote:I believe the coders of it (I happen to hang on same irc channel , it's realtime.

Then again, I preffer well designed demos (Andromeda) than perfectly executed looking demos (Andromeda)Akira wrote:I think Lapsuus is overrated. Zero design, shitty track,...
Then again, I preffer well designed demos (Melon) than perfectly executed but lame looking demos (Sanity)
 only good design bit abot Sanity was Cougar. he pixelled nice stuff..
What about DOS, Sequential (Terrific demo!),Slummy wrote:Weeell, Andromeda didn't make that many great demos... Mind Riot and Nexus 7 were splendid, but in most of their other demos the effects&impact drowned in pastel-colours and flying design-vectors...
and great slideshows like seven seas?
Although pastel colours, it was the music in mirror which wade it terrific,
even though it had a lovely intro.
D.O.S. was an ok demo for it's time, but not that impressive, and Sequential is just a collection of old routines (HeadX did most of the effects-code more than 1 year before the demo was released) wrapped in boring and uninspired design... (ofcourse I'm a bit harsh here. some of the parts are goodlooking, but in my opinion the demo was not a worthy winner of TG..)
I like Melon Productions; it's not THAT an impressive a code but more of a third degree joke.
I have Andromeda's DOS and Nexus 7 which are nice.
And I REALLY like Sanity's Arte which is, IMHO, one of the best Amiga demos EVEr!
Talkingabout Sanity, yes Cougar is a TERRIFIC GFX-artis, but what about Jester and Moby???
