We're back!

In case you happen to read this: NVScene is back!

We'll be gathering once again at the end of March in San Jose, hosted by NVIDIA's GPU Technology Conference, and we already have a very strong roster of speakers. Who knows, we might start posting some live stuff here again!

See you there!

This blog is (obviously) not updated any longer

Hi all! For some reason, this blog keeps getting hits. We'd just like to say that it's obviously not being updated any longer, but we just saved it from Blogger.com-deletion, so it'll stay online (but, as said: it will not be updated). For more up-to-date links on demoscene activities, go here instead: Displayhack.org Pouet.net Twitter.com/gloom303

Compos done - WOW!

Okay, I'm close to speechless - that was probably both the best 4k and best demo compo I have attended this year. The prods were great, the crowd went wild - it was just a perfect evening of demoscene spirit! I'm going to bed now so I'm leaving you with this image:

Chaos' seminar

A magical number.

Chaos' excellent user interface sketches for werkzeug.

Chaos blows things up!

Showing off werkzeug.

Mentor's seminar

Mentor/TBC is currently on stage, and the Q&A has just started. He thought he could just jump off stage and hide, but no. :) The audience wanted to know more about how making such 4k intros are possible.

Mentor shows off the animation system used in Micropolis.


Mentor tells us how NOT to make 4k intros.


"ARGH! IT'S THE INSIDE OF THE MATRIX!" (quote from Chaos :)

Mentor shows off what the "source" of Atrium looks like in their tool.

Videos from Demoscene.tv

Demoscene.tv is present at NVScene, making reports and putting them online as soon as they are edited. Here you can follow these reports (Flash player is needed)

Pictures from last night

People chilling out around the "bonfire"! Steeler giving the traditional german salute :)

The american demo posse (from left to right: gd, zsazS, and trixter)

Navis and someone from NVIDIA, Matt from the NVScene crew in the background.

Phoenix/Hornet - demomaking is NOT A CRIME!

Pan/Spinning Kids just before he went into camera-lens analytical mode. :)

IQ's talk (updated - Blogger works again :)

IQ just finished his talk on generating virtual worlds in 4 kilobytes on the GPU, and the room was packed. 140+ people, standing room only. Here are some pictures:



Right now pretty much everyone is heading over to the keynote speech by Jen-Hsun Huang, so the room is finally quiet and relaxed again. :) The crew will be having some lunch now, and in an hour, the seminars will continue. Be sure not to miss the outreach team's talk on the origins of the demoscene (trust me, it's not as boring as it's title :) at 3 PM in the NVScene room.. because you're OF COURSE already here, aren't you? If not: shame on you! :)
