New Spectrum demo project for download (with audio)

Wed Oct 18, 2017 3:34 pm

Hi guys, you may have seen the video we recently posted which shows some of the new features in Magic 2.11:


I wanted to post the full project (with audio) so you can see how it works and customize it for yourself. Here's the download link:

This project is pretty resource-intensive, so it may go a bit slow on older computers. If you have a really fast computer, you can un-bypass the Antialias module for even better quality.

Some things to take note of:

- The curviness of the Spectrum is made possible by the new Spectrum parameters in 2.11, and the use of the Circle Wrap Distortion effect (which existed since 2.0).

- The very subtle vibrations on heavy beats are made possible by the new Expression modifier functionality, which allows you to use Globals as variables. Specifically, you will see that a random element is applied only when the beat is above a certain threshold.

- It's easy to change the background simply by editing/removing/adding modules in the Background scene.

- Make sure you have at least Magic 2.11 -- older versions won't load this project properly (some features will be missing).

That's it for now... I hope you enjoy, and if you have any questions, please feel free to reply!
