Gracias! La verdad es que esta comunidad hace bastante tiempo que no ve mucha actividad, lo único que te podría recomendar es subir tus AVS a deviantART o al sitio de Winamp. Lamento desilusionarte, pero el desarrollo de AVS (y Winamp) se estancó hace años, y de comunidad ya no queda mucho.
Very interesting stuff. When it comes to AVS, I always envied your ability to keep pumping out these cool, sort of ambiental flow pieces with a sense of ruggedness that seemed at the same time random and deliberate. I remember comments about my stuff where people would talk about things like the color combinations or the use of space, and it was funny to me sometimes that I focused on those things partly because I sucked at creating those kind of gritty, crazy visuals.
AVS was pretty much a toy for me when I started, in 2002 I think. It blows my mind how long ago that was. I was a sucker for the 3D stuff that ~el-vis was doing, but what really caught my attention as time went on and got me more involved was the polish and the aesthetic appeal in the work of people like ~skupers, ~fsk, ~duo, `yathosho and others.
Looking back, AVS was the first real creative outlet for me, the first medium that sparked inspiration and helped me develop an "eye". I started noticing and appreciating these amazing designs in AVS which in turn made me pay more attention to everyday design and details I'd otherwise ignore. I'd see graffiti in the streets, notice a cool shape or color combination and in my head I'd be planning to make a preset out of that, or at least incorporate some of its features. Same thing with art, design in magazines, ads, even architecture. I realize now that I was finding and actively seeking inspiration pretty much everywhere.
Deep down I think I always had sort of a vague interest in these things, but AVS was the true catalyst for me to really tap into it. And the community that formed around AVS was a crucial aspect of my experience.
I always sort of hoped that, in time, something like a spiritual successor to AVS would pop up and get us all (or at least a good chunk of us) in that state of mind again. It doesn't even feel like a possibility now, but I'll always remember those days fondly.
