Lightbulb Just another preset...

It has been booring here lately, so I post one preset on what im working...
The colour effect is nice and if to work bit more on this preset, it might come up pretty cool (i think so), but right now its half done...
Suggestions? Ideas? All are welcome...

Nice SSC's, but it needs something to go with it. Throw a nice background DM on it and make the SSC a bit more music reactive.

Its not that hard to make stuff look good, it looks pretty good it just needs work is all, i still dont like the colours very much but this looks pretty sweet, i (finally) got around to making a cube, this is what i did with it, i think it looks pretty good. btw i know the shadow is crappy and not correct, well probably anyway ll i did was shift the scope by 0.2 points, meh, stll looks good

Nice and simple cube (better than mine)... I like the shadow effect and those 3 cubes inside eachother is neat...
This 3d rotation part is bit spooky for me:

...
x2=(x1*zzz+y1*zaz)*yyy+z1*yay;
y2=(x1*zaz-y1*zzz)*xax+((x1*zzz+y1*zaz)*yay-z1*yyy)*xxx;
z2=(x1*zaz-y1*zzz)*xxx-((x1*zzz+y1*zaz)*xax)*zzz;
...


Okay...? Is this there "good" now?

now that looks nice, very very nice. It looks all electricy and good now, the colours fit well with it now, and after all my whinging i would make it so the box thingys go until the vanishing point when straight on and off the screen when not and have the oscilliscopey thingy all the way through it, very nice job my cube code probably needs optimising, still, its a cube. Plus my codes nice and easy to read like that for me.

raz: try making the scopes themselves music responsive, or slightly less "coordinated" - make them twist apart, then back together again every beat or something (like from el-vis's Plasma or Neuromancer intros)

Ok made some slight modifications, i hope this is more to your liking atero it morphs around, it still needs to morph differently blah blah, ill work on innovation when coursework isnt coming out of my ass.

edit: ahh bollocks, it morphed around when i made the modifications, piecoshit aint doin it now crappy thing

edit2: removed attatchment

sorry for all the posts. the morphing just needed a little speeding up is all, btw i tried morphing it on all three but it looked shit and never went back to the cube shapes so i just used it on z, i think.

That's nice raz. The morphing is kinda weird, but it's nice. Love the shadow.

They all look prety good, but they are running at about 6-7 fps. Personally i don't like slow presets.
They're still nice though, even when they are double pixeled.

Sweet momma It looks great but it really needs a background.And modifying the distance could make it look better IMO.Oh and that shadow effect is cool.And and and blah...Its a good preset

PS. z1=if(equal(a,1),0.2,z1);
y1=if(equal(a,2),0.2,y1);
x1=if(equal(a,3),-0.2,x1); and the others -> those equations create the cube right ?

yeah im gonna work on the morphing when i get the time, right now all it is is a bit of z2 multiplied by one of the getosc thingys i used for the rotation.

As for the FPS its running exceptionally high for my computer, most of my presets run at about 11/12 on my computer and this is running at about 27/28, i dont know, maybe change of music or something.

and distance, yeah blah blah ill work on it when i get time. busy busy lazy busy b me at the moment. 3 months before GCSEs and im behind on coursework and and and, you get the idea

cube 5.5 runs with 40fps @ 320x200 on my machine. Long live Duron and Geforce 2 I agree with Limpet the others are a bit slow even for my dream machine lol.

You could probably reduce the number of ifs in there which should speed it up.

You rotation looks a tad wonky to me, and you'd get less distortion as the points move farther from the viewing plane if you multiplied by the inverse of z.

Here's my first box preset if it helps at all.

Yeah i thought the rotation looked a bit dodgy at first but with the distortion i didnt notice it. I prefer using all the ifs to using the bor function. i didnt like that method, i thought the if one was much easier.

As for the posting, yeah i do but... erm... yeah
Morphing needs work i think ill do that now actaully
Oh yeah phaze graphics cards dont affect FPS, its all processor based.
Pretty nice box JC, I thought id missed a multipication somewhere but i wasnt sure where, thanks.

I added 2 ssc-s and removed some blurs and other trans stuff, also I optized scopes, now its fast and only few not-so-important effects are gone!

Raz so you say that if i have an amd athlon xp 2200+ and a video card with 16mb ram the presets will run fast ? I have a p4 1.7 at school with riva tnt2 m64 and they move like crap even at low resolutions...

Nice background effect and its fast too but i dont like that the superscope looks so insignificant (i guess that this was misspelled) now.

The movement seems very repetitive. Try something a little more random. The background also makes it harder to see the actual SSC as it takes away all of the focus on the SSC. It's a nice effect, but more of a preset of it's own than a background.

ok here's another one, colors are eaven more cooler.
I could make the rings move around the oscilliscopeS but it would only make the preset eaven MORE slower...

Nice, but try translating the SSC some so the center of it isn't always in the center of the screen, but don't make it stray too far from the center.
