LouieUnsaved Featured By Owner Edited Dec 28, 2015
01- Very unique building design in tunnel
02- Nice planet design
03- A tentacle preset using triangles, nice
04- Very unique volcano-spike design
05- Not too much nice fractal preset but hey not bad
06- Too fast DM-like 3D filter makes this as the number 1 preset in the pack
07- Not too complex as others but hey nice, you might saying, take a break
08- At first it looks like a can but now its a swirly tunnel can
09- Not using megabufs but still complex and nice
10- Very nice but nicer if you add unique tone (color white, inverted, additive blend) before invert.
11- A group of hexagons on triangle huh, convenient
12- Hexagon version of The Construct
13- Whoa, spiky preset, like in this album art
14- Arranging lines in superscoope, also convenient
15- In and out cube, really wow, but theres a bug here, sometimes, you cant really see it.
16- Line glow version of Pearl Beats. Hey, must call that spaghetti, didn't you?
17- That does look like your not using megabufs but you are using megabufs

Nice. It looks great when listening to Drum n' Bass genre music. Very edgy and unique.

Huh, Take this in Visbot 100!
Cold Fusion: Try without Mouse Control. You Found at Visbot 100
The Construct: Now, Without Insane Coding.

hm, im late but i still want to comment on this.

the construct:
i saw this before but i still like this one. just sometimes lines inside the visible area are skipped.

cold fusion:
also saw this before. i think its one of your best presets. everything fits toghether. colors are nice. good sound reaction. there are music and beat responding things...

hm, the triangle looks really good and smooth. i dont like that background very much tho.

Inverse Eruption:
just one triangle grid without any background. but imo thats absolutly enough in that case! what i like, is that some triangles are a bit brighter than the others and that its not that smooth. great music visualisation!

very stylish blob-preset. very nice colors. and yes, the movement could be a bit less jumpy

Another one of my favourites. really good music visualisation again. and i like the style of the preset

I think making a nice SAP is not easy. And this one looks pretty good imo.

Ion Core:
And another favourite. All the color schemes are good. great combination of all the different things here.

I dont like that one very much.

hm, i agree with pak-9 on the colors. the mouse control doesnt matter for me because i usually dont use it.

Again a good use of the triangle ape. the background fits perfectly and the music response is pretty good.

I like this one better than the construct. It is more music responsive and the lineskipping works better here.

Glass Peaks:
Just great. My favourite spectrum preset so far.

Toghether with PearlBeats this one is the best in your strange-attractors-series imho. OK it has no background but i dont think every preset needs one. This one doesnt look too empty for me. maybe you could move it a little bit towards the camera, that it fills the sceen more, or shorten the periods when its zoomed out.

First i thought: well, another inside-a-cube-preset. But then it moved out and.. wow.

hm, im not sure about this one. it looks good when the line is long enough. But it looks too similar to Clusterfuck, wich looks much better. I also cant notice any sound response and the camera seems to jump around sometimes.

looks like the thing in the middle of Cold fusion. But with all that glowing and colors it makes a really good preset.

Most of the presets are a great combination of colors, good coding and you didn't forget the music response. The fps is high enough for me in all of the presets. So,... you already have my +fav.

This pack is absolutely astounding in its achievement. Sorry I didn't comment earlier, as I was dumbfounded. Congradulations on making one of the best packs in years.
shock-value Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2005
This is absolutely phenomenal. Nice job!
dRRew Featured By Owner Nov 14, 2005
even thought ive seen some of these presets before, it was a joy to see them again.
inverse eruption, pearl beats, ion core, compressor, glass peeks and clusterfuck
are my favourites.
overall, technical coding mixed with smooth backgrounds and colours.
10's from drew.

I'll have to be sure and try out that AVS preset.
cyancat Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2005
oh wow!! I am loving these!!
Pearl Beats, Cold Fusion, Ion-Core, are my favorites!!! @_@ and Feedback Cube is the most wonderous thing I have seen yet!!! Lovely!!!

:+fav: because I've been staring at my computer screen without moving for about fifteen minutes. Goa-psychedelic trance music works amazingly with it :D
zen-x Featured By Owner Nov 10, 2005
First the bad; When I swap between 'clusterfuck' and 'forcefield' I get a VB error message that crashes winamp or baconWrapper leaving a process eating alot of memory and CPU... I'm pointing my finger at eeltrans, could be bad RAM but I don't think so.

Apart from that a great pack - techie but thats not the point; the point is the great effects you create with them. The black background is a little repetative (but most of the best presets have it so wtf :) ), but the action is good enough to forgive this. My favourates; 'Ion Core' Its progressed nicely since the last release and the use of camera movement and perspective is good as is the same with 'Cold Fusion', I don't like the manual controls with that though, imo have the balls to set it and leave it. 'Meserize' is just freeking sweet although I think you could make it better with more tenticle interaction (twisting around each other for example). 'Glass Peeks' would be up there but the rotation is repetative and detracts from what is great use of the triangle mod.

Overall comparisions can be made to other artists but whats the point? It's a positive that your first pack gets compaired to them. You have created your own twisted reality in here; good job.


TomyLobo Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2005
as always, your presets are stylistically great and technically sound :thumbsup:

My favorites are:
Kompakt (love your use of triangles there *g*)
Pearl Beats (nice effect: "wow, it's moving!" :))
Forcefield (same as pak here, also probably the effort i put into fixing eeltrans to make this preset work for me and pak again :))

you also tend to keep a better eye on the framerate than most :) *cough*wfc3*cough*

now to the (few) problems with your presets :)
like pak said, you've got to work on Compressor's mouse control :)
what about transformation matrices? you could achieve more intuitive mouse control with them and also get rid of the slow rotation when one of the rotation angles is at 90 degrees

Clusterfuck might have a bug... it got stuck somehow, just rapidly bobbing in and out without moving much more than that
yathosho Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2005
pearl beats, clusterfuck (expect a remix dropping soon) and mesmerize where my favourites in the pack, though i gotta agree with zamuz on the disappointment with black backgrounds. inverse eruption is very impressive, but i'd certainly like it better with another color-scheme. ion-core reminds me a lot of ~duo's stuff, while delerius is more like ~skupers.. and i hope you don't take it as something negative, that i compare you to other people (both very nice presets). one of the most stunning debuts in history of avs!
kauahagga Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2005
wow...awesome work here....
my favorites are :
Pearl Beats( O u t s t a n d i n g)
and of course...ion-core
Hboy Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2005
you know how much i love this. so i just fav it :)
zamuz Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2005   Digital Artist
i've been expecting this pack for a long time now, and i must say it has fulfilled, and why not, exceeded my expectations. gotta love the way you mix visually appealing stuff with technical know-how, and in a way, i was a bit disappointed when i came across presets with black backgrounds, but nothing that'd bring the overall high quality of the pack. favs:

cold fusion (an all-time fav)
kompakt (could've been more tentacles tho)
pearl beats (i thought it was a moving particle, and then it went 3d, that was awesome)
ion core
glass peeks (another all-time fav)
mesmerize (the comment about black backgrounds doesn't really apply here)

needless to say, +fav
amphirion Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2005
like i said...i loved this pack very much thank you. my favorites included 'pearl beats', 'clusterfuck', and 'mesmerize'

i said it once, and i'll say it again...but again, you said it first...
strange attractors pwn.
Grandchild Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2005
just great!
kompakt and
glass peeks most.
The others are gorgeous too!

:+fav: for sure!
tuggummi Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2005
I already gave you a kickass comment about this kickass pack at the kickass winamp forums.

So i'll just add it to my favourites now, if you don't mind =p

pak-9 Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2005
Okay here we go:

- The Construct
I've had this preset for a while so I've got rather used to it, but its solid work

- Cold Fusion
Stylistically quite nice, but not amazing

- Kompakt
mmm, very smooth, it would have been nicer if there were 3 tentacles thats moved randomly tho imo

- Inverse Eruption
very nice, it might have looked nicer with texer's but its quite stylish with triangles too. One very minor technical point, the movement doesnt look interpolated which would make it look smoother.

- Ameta
Another one I've had for a while, the style is awesome, probably one of my favorite metablob presets, but the movement doesnt quite match the style, too jumpy and beat dependant.

- Pearl Beats
very cool, great fun to watch (bit of gimble lock tho)

- Iced
a little dull but ok

- Ion-Core
Very sylish, good response, overall great preset

- Delerius
not sure about this one, its a tad strange

- Compressor
bler, the colours are yicky and the mouse control doesnt correspond to any logical movement

- Forcefield
I really love this preset, great music response, lovely neony glow style, just great stuff

- Hextic
A bit too much like 'The construct', still ok tho

- Glass Peeks
Seen it before but its a good preset. Interesting to see triangle.ape used for transluent triangles for a change. I like the way the hexagonal grid is extended beyond the bounds of the peaks too

- Clusterfuck
ooh such language. A nice tangle but little empty and slow

- Feedbackcube
very nice idea, very well executed, great

- Spaget
ergh, i dont like these long drawing line presets, okay it looks fairly cool but its not really a visualisation

- Mesmerize
mmmm, lovely, smooth and... well.. mesmerising :P

Overall: great stuff, really great. I have a hard time thinking of any real critisism, some people have said that it doesnt really bring anything 'new' or 'innovative' but I personally dont think that is a good way to judge a pack. The presets have a lovely style imo combined with some good solid tech... and if that doesnt make a great pack, I dont know what does :fav:
synth-c Featured By Owner Nov 4, 2005
yes, it's included in the installer
