Total Immersion by shock-value Total Immersion by shock-value
Finally, my second official pack has arrived after many months of labor. I hope you enjoy it!

Some notes about the installer: if you get an error when installing the fonts it means you already have them. Just press "ignore" in that case to continue with the installation. Also, if you don't have the APE AddBorders, be sure to check the box to install APEs. It's the only one that's included, so don't worry about AVS messing up by having duplicate APEs.

Daily Deviation

Given 2004-04-28
You into Winamp visualizations? Total Immersion by ~shock-value is both, technically outstanding and visually appealing. Pay special attention to the interactive features of these presets. ( Featured by yathosho )

This pack made you instantly one of the best avs creators around. The interactivity works very well and the design is very good. I can't do anything but add it to my favourites.

You've got me schitzophrenic about your pack... I really like a lot of things, and I really dislike a lot of things. It's 5-star soup with a fly in it.

Intro: great idea, great execution... good way to open!

Fighting the infection: awesome colorscheme and looks, the glow is super. However the movement has this bouncy thing to it which I don't like at all.

Graph paper: the overal geometry is okay, but that dirty brown background kind of spoils it for me.

Jeweled Chessboard: stylish and simple, not much to say

Writhing in pleasure: cool flowy preset with superb colors. the original scope shape is almost invisible and that's a good thing I think

Helix: I think it was a mistake to turn down the glow effect from the start, cos it looks much better even at 55-60% (the beams are noticable then). The simple scope shape looks wonderful, and you would have a winner on your hands if you had just tweaked it some more... The helix rolls relative to one of the edges, rather than the center. If you use "(nn-.5)*4.5*..." instead of "nn*4.5*...", I think this looks much nicer due to the symmetry. You'd have to add some onsound/onbeat rotating around the axis to still get that nice effect when the edge passes the camera quickly though.

Forces of coherence: the diagonal grid is kind of neat, but the colors are a bit oompf. This would be better if you hadn't use mosaic effects so much elsewhere IMO.

Source of power: the little scope objects is sweet, but that onbeat extending followed by constant inward zooming really ticks me off. It's really annoying in a way. It should zoom out, stick at that distance, zoom in again, stick at that distance, etc. Would be much better, now you just get a glimpse of another situation, and then it falls back again.

Architectural design: well, there's not much to say other than: you rule ;). The interface could've used a couple of tweaks though. A button to switch between freehand drawing (click and drag, as it now) and line segment drawing (click for starting point, click for ending point) would be handy. Showing more than just the current and lower level would also be handy.
Best interactive preset by a long shot.

Other presets don't float my boat at all.

As far as the remixes go, I didn't like any of them very much. I think you should've just stuck to the regular method of just letting remixers have all the freedom they want rather than forcing certain rules. Especially cos I really don't like that ribbon + cube preset and it's repeated a lot.

Still a +fav cos of the few jewels in there, but I think you should've evaluated your own pack better before releasing.

Actually with the preset "Helix" I did try making it rotate with the middle as the center point like you suggested but I found that I liked it better the way I have it now. Must just be my personal taste. Anyway, thanks for the comments!
framesofreality Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2004
I loved your first pack, and this one's even better. :D
Very original presets,( especially Architectural Design : one hell of a code you've done there -) )and i love your flows too.
The FPS is a little low sometimes, but i think i shouldn't be the one to complain about that. :)
One of the most creative packs i've ever seen.
:+fav: of course
montana38 Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2004
woaw, this is a great pack, the intro is by far the greatest avs intro i've seen and then we had a lot of great presets and also some great interactivity, too much mosaics for my taste but still architectural design makes up for everything, good job :+favlove:
Hboy Featured By Owner Apr 27, 2004
Really outstanding job, most of the presets were awesome, the interactivity is simply superior. The possibility to make a personal appartment house in AVS is a really great idea and also a good way to do it. This quaility throughout the pack sets a standard many of us should follow.
nemoorange Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2004
What a great pack. Lots of lovely presets. Love all the interactive elements, like the different styles and whatnot. I had a lot of fun with the Architectural Design, hell of a system you had working there. Some presets were a bit slow with the FPS, but considering how good they look, I'll let it slide. Phenominal work!

:confused: it doesn't do anything...
yathosho Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2004
think i liked your first pack better, but that's maybe because most of the remixes. my favorite preset is with no doubt uncluttered elegance. nevertheless an outstanding pack!
yathosho Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2004
Also, if you don't have the APE AddBorders, be sure to check the box to install APEs

the installer will automatically check the box, if the user has no addborders ape installed :)
shock-value Featured By Owner Apr 26, 2004
Oh ok thanks Yathosho, also I don't think there is a problem with the fonts after all, I just got an error when making the installer but not afterwards when testing it. PimpBot kicks ass!
