Need custom AVS

project Venom
link

This is a new advanced skin I have designed and is being coded now.

I want this to be the first skin to be released with a custom AVS, to be released at the same time together called Venom AVS

I will give the best avs preset that is posted here $40. and the rest will be shipped with the One that wins. Tell me what you think. Try to incorporate electricy or skin colors and graphics into it. Thanks!! prize money could go up depending on the responce to this.

dounds interesting..
skin looks nice..
im not sure if i quite understand what you are getting at though, are you actually going to use more than one preset, or just the one that wins.

From what I can gather from the other thread, I think he's looking for us to be the ones to make the electricity animated... (correct me if I'm wrong QH)

no. that is not the avs screen. then the "custom" avs would be pointless. what QH wants is an AVS preset, preferably electric-themed that looks somewhat like the skin

hi,

the electricity is going to be animated by me, and it is activated by sound. You guys just have to make your avs presets to show in the AVS's box. I dont think the AVS's can be put in the .wal but it will be released on the same day that this skin is.

So the avs window will be just like the normal avs window? Or a special shape? I guess one criteria also is FPS... or do you want something really complex? (not that i can do that, but just asking) One more question and that is, do you want it to be skin themed (with colors)?

Sorry for all these questions, but im interested and i will probably try to make something atleast

Its the normal vis window, fps doesnt matter, complex or not, more thought that goes into it gets more points with me. The skin will have alot of different theme colors but to just make the avs to how you feel Venom should be portrayed is what i want. Its a cool skin make cool AVS's

they might all be in the final download, but 1 will win!! 1 month till I stop taking AVS's

Never use oscilloscope data to represent lightning... lightning has a hugely different spectrum.

sorry to burst your bubble QH, but I have seen one or two skins with an included AVS in the skin file (to get it you would have to rename to .zip, open, and extract the file). But then again, that one had nothing to do with the skin either...

UnConeD, could you please enlighten us to the actual spectrum of lightning then?

1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 3W | 4WW

I just use x(n+1)=x(n)+(rand(3)-1) as I pass down the shaft.

A lightning can be considered a fractal shape (up to the level of the air molecules that are being ionised) so the spectrum after sampling would contain an amplitude for every frequency (due to near-infinite aliasing), unlike regular music which is concentrated in the lower frequencies.

Hey guys,

Ya I think I can link a installer program from a window that pops up when the skin is first installed. That would be really neat. Then who ever makes a vis and sends it in to this contest will be in there. They will be rated from 1 to whatever the count of final AVS's. No AVS's entered as of Yet here.

Sorry quad, but everytime i tried to do a preset for your skin i ended up making such a good preset that i wanted to keep it for myself Besides i guess you can't use any external files/effects in the preset, am i right? You know Picture's, APE's etc. Anyway sorry man, but im keeping these myself

HAHA,

Come on Tug, let us have 1 of them at least. You can add graphics like small bmps I will put them in a folder. There will be a installer with this pack that will be in the Skin directory.

Well they are actually not that good, but they use APE's which i doubt you could or would include within the skin... I might try again to make a venom preset after i get my pack out, which is this wednesday, which is... tomorrow! (wow....)

You said you can do support for small pictures, but you still didn't say anything about APE's, I made a nice preset, but it uses the colormap ape, I'll post it in a day or two, I'm still working on the background a little bit, with or without colormap.

Yes, I do have the newest Colormap, but I worked on it over the last day and made it now so that it uses Channel Shift instead of Color Map. I don't know if there is a newer version of Colormap or not, but I included the one I have with it. I might try to change the background around a little bit, because I don't like the way it turned out exactly, but it's good enough for now.

Here's the preset that I used to make my avatar. I don't have time to make an entirely new preset right now though. Hopefully this will be alright.
