Here are some highlights from last year's releases.

Fermi Paradox by Mercury (PC 64k intro)

Darkness Lay Your Eyes Upon Me by Conspiracy (PC 64k intro)

Higher State of Resolution by Dekadence (Amiga 64k intro)

Soleu by Collapse (PC 4k intro)

Instant God by Fairlight & CNCD (PC demo)

Through the Cracks by Still (PC demo)

True Colors by Still (PC demo)

If you can you should run them yourself instead of watching video captures. Especially the first Still demo gets completely destroyed by Youtube's video encoding.

So, it's live rendered video? Like some cutscenes in games? I downloaded one but it was locked to a 1080p resolution though.
But is there any advantage to this over pre-rendering a video? Or is it all about showing off your hacker skills?

>> No.59892520

>Or is it all about showing off your hacker skills?

It has always been about showing off skills and creativity.

>But is there any advantage to this over pre-rendering a video?

Smaller filesize. Also many codecs will absolutely destroy certain visuals.

>> No.59892550

It's like live rendered video, but it was amazing stuff when computers could not even render videos like today.

if they could not, then it wasn't possible?

possible, hence computers could render that video, and only programmers couldn't program them properly

Usually there was no video at all, it was clever code.

>> No.59892682

although probably it was already too late as those computers were already obsolete

>> No.59892721

It's not impressive anymore, but it was impressive when you made a computer with 64k of RAM and 1MHz CPU render pseudo-3D environments, 3D objects, multiple layers of graphics, video, voice... or generally braking limits even the people who designed the systems didn't have an idea was possible.

>> No.59892723

>But is there any advantage to this over pre-rendering a video?
The whole point of demos is that they're computed in real time. Demoscene isn't about producing pretty videos, it's about producing pretty demos.
