Community Picks

Occassionaly I hear people complaining about the selection of presets in Winamp5. I agree with them though: AVS is one of the cooler standard visualisers in media players, and the standard selection doesn't really show it off. I think it's time we got a 'Community Picks' folder to go along with Winamp5.

The result should be a collection of 20-30 or so high-quality presets, with varied styles. Technicals are of course allowed, but remember that this pack will be intended for newbies who don't care about lines of code, but visual and soundresponsive quality.

I'm sure we can get Nullsoft to include it (and otherwise we'll pick out the sexiest AVSer to go seduce a nullsoft employee).

So here's the plan: 2 phases, 1) selection and 2) voting.

Everyone picks their 5 favourite presets and posts them here, attached as a ZIP file, including all required support files (bitmaps and such). You are allowed to submit your own presets if you want, but be honest with yourself: this is about quality visuals, not egos.

Check if your preset has already been chosen by another member. If so, there's no point in posting it twice, because we're not voting yet at this stage. Go ahead and pick a replacement preset if you want, or just post less than 5.

Picking only 5 might be hard, but it's to keep the selection managable.

It's best to avoid presets which use large images, to keep the total size down. Small texer-bitmaps are no problem of course.

You may only post your selection once: so think before you pick . This is also a good chance to go and download lots of AVS packs and discover new stuff.

2 weeks from now, the first round is over and I will take all suggested presets, remove the duplicates and put up a vote.

The exact mechanics of the vote will still have to be decided, but it's probably going to be a points-based vote (like on the Eurovision song contest). You get to hand out the scores 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 to presets. You may only use each score once, and may not give more than one score to a preset.
All scores are added up, and the highest ranking 'n' presets are selected. This system will select out the best presets easily, while still giving lesser presets a good chance at being selected. It also allows people with different first choices, but matching second (or third, fourth, ...) choices, to come to a better compromise.

Please keep the thread clear of useless posts, and make sure you don't forget your attachment!

Can we vote for ourselves? :P

Lessee...5 favourite presets...that could take a while. I also get the feeling that there will be way too many people who vote for 5 presets out of Whacko VI/Final Whack (I *hope* that's not what you wanted to get out of this ). It's a good idea nonetheless. I'll get around to picking stuff out eventually...or not

I suggest adding easy-to-understand presets too so newbs have examples of how to get started, instead of working through the technically high advanced stuff i'm expecting here...

Speaking as the Noob that I am, I think this is a great idea. ;-c ,rattaplan's suggestion would be a great help to us that have little hope of ever coding anything technical. Maybe even breaking the pac into different sections. Eg. Advanced , favorites (whether tech, beat response etc) ,easily manipulated (with comments on how to manipulate {Eg. change # in r=***** to change rotation, change # in d=*** to change distance and so on}). I think this may result in a fewer amount of dumb ass noob questions (me included) that are posted in the forums.

Sorry, the idea is to include pretty presets for people who just want to watch: what's going behind the scenes is not important.

I didn't bother to include them, since everyone has them anyways . I know it's not an original list, but I can't help it, they're simply the best. I will still include one of mine, since I like it a lot.

1. UnConeD - Final Whack - Seismogrid
2. UnConeD - Final Whack - Tokyo Bullet
3. Tuggummi - Extra Dimension - Let me out!
4. Skupers - Aetherius - Dual Flow
5. Deamon - Fill Rate

I wonder if I can beat up against the rest to get in the favs pack. I guess it'll be a lot of Final Whack and Tuggummi.

I kill you of it's your plan to get extra publicity, UnConeD! (j/k)

Please follow the instructions and submit your favourites in ZIP. It distributes the workload of having to collect the presets among everyone.

My all-time favourites are:

UnConeD - Goldie
UnConeD - Seismogrid
El-Vis - Spindle
Duo - Alien intercourse 4
Fsk - Teddy

I have included only the ones that have not been posted here, and I think you have the presets you made, UnConeD, so I didn't include them.

el-vis_rittaufdemfeuerstrahl

26_Ex_Deux_Mechanica (amphiron)

UnConeD - FW - 22 - Don't Trip and Drive

Acid - Twitchy liquid shit (mixing plastics)

Snowflake Pillow - Convo Trigger (mine)

These aren't really favorite top presets (for example, I like Tokyo Bullet and Fragmer's lookitssummer (an outro) a little more than these), but definetly ones that could represent in the pack. Mine isn't an ego thing, but sort of the opposite. I think it looks really cool, but is also not too complex that it would intimidate a possible recruit. Many other presets proposed are great, but would have been very scary for me in the editor until a month or so ago.

this is NOT the preset forum. this is the "Community Picks" thread. please post your new presets in the "AVS Presets" forum.
if you want to propose presets for the community picks, pick 5 presets, not 18...

as for me, i'm still choosing presets... there's so many fantastic presets out there it's hard to decide

If you can't say something nice, say something surrealistic.

I think it would be better if each artist would post one or two presets of himself, after which will be decided it will be in the pack. Otherwise there'll almost only be UnConeD's, Tuggummi's and some Skupers presets. This way, much more different artists are able to show some of their work, and you'll get a much more varied pack.

Just my thoughts

But that are the best presets, it's that simple. I just think it would be nice if other artists would show their work in it as well, but this way, people who don't have the coding skills for it can pack their bags.

i hope this is going to become a real community pack, not just a pack of one of the above. the voting-system could limit the presets-per-artist, so nobody is over- or under-represented.

Who am I to disagree with shameless self promotion.
Here are my 5 favs in alphabetical order (yes so I could list mine first :P)

Jheriko - Alien Device (Gallery Remix by Zamuz)
Jheriko - Flourescence
Skupers - The Revenge of Mt. Doom
Tuggummi - Damn Hedrons!
UnConeD - Mister Santa

I made my choices mostly based on the quality of the visual effect, there were a few really attractive presets that I skimmed over though due to their total lack of reactivity that I may have otherwise included.

btw. If presets from ED are going to be selected id like to include the update versions not the old ones.

[edit]
Deamon, it is still up to you to select the presets. You don't have to select UnConeD's or skupers presets just, because the majority thinks they are the best. I myself am only going to vote only for one UnConeD's preset, because that's the only one i think that should be included.
So quit blaming yourself for not being able to select other than UnConeD's presets

My top-5:

Is the order important? in that case:

1) UnConeD - Daedalus
2) Tuggummi - Orb Of Destruction
3) El-Vis - Virus
4) Alchemist - Electric Laserland ('Inside Laserland' according to comment)
5) El-Vis - Golden

Okay, that's my list. It's only a few words, but it took quite a few hours to dig through the presets I have...
Now it's done, I notice that these are only quite simple (D)movement-based presets and no render-base presets, which somehow surprises me.
All presets are attached.

wow.
You have no idea how long it took me to pick these out :S

my picking is based on:
-they respond to the music well
-they run fast(fps)
-they are pretty lookin'
-there isn't 50 identical presets out there that I could have picked instead.


zamuz - explosive virus
NemoOrange - Implode Explode
degnic - fractal (slow-mo metallic)
Degnic - Fury (extreme remix by fsk)
unconed - silk strings

FIRST POST in WINAMP FORUMS!!!

Okay, I've posted here because I'm a big fan of AVS.
I've seen presets almost as early as 1999.
Well, here are my top 5 favorites:


1) Degnic - Data Flow
2) Shock Value - Grafitti
3) UnconeD - All Neon-Like
4) El-VIS - Digitalistbesser
5) Tuggummi - Sound Rings


I decided to pick only 1 from an artist so that
I won't look like a fanboy of a particular person.
The presets I chose above are based from my experience
and took me awhile because it's really hard to decide.
Almost every preset i've seen today are visually stunning.

I decided to use some more unknown presets. It was extra difficult because I already have to pick a lot of favourite presets (Deskmod series) and I didn't want to repeat myself.

les Noobiens - das kaffeeservice (zamuz pretty rmx)
nixa - baptism by fire
tuggummi - guingtsing
nemoorange - spiriel
tonic - zoomed picture from one insect

And thanks to everyone that picked one of my presets. I really appreciate it.

My picks...

Tuggummi - Chrome Deluxe (best chrome preset)

Unripelemon - Nectar (stylish flow preset with a lot of depth: seems to jump out of the AVS window)

fšk - ice cube (weird colors and stylized response, an old favorite)

Tuggummi + Jheriko - No way out remix (sweet 3D DM with sweet texture)

fšk - afterburner remix (This preset pwnz, with a 'p').

(I originally had Degnic - Dataflow, but that's was already picked)
