Nu Metal Visualization

Fri Jul 30, 2021 7:58 pm

A bit louder than my usual music, set-up in some kind of post-apocalyptic downtown environment.

Everything visualized with Magic Music, no video editing software was involved in the process.

So far my most time-consuming visualization with lots of little details and blinkenlights.
Learned (again) a ton of new Magic Visuals possibilities, and I know that I still need lots of things to discover and learn...still a newbie scratching the surface of a new toy...

Best viewed in HD and listened via a good stereo :-)

Feedback very appreciated!

Coolest visual for a while!
Two points broke it for me. When the skull/head retreats and when the ground changes to the tunnel visual.
I would have tried to make the transition from skull to post-apocalypse more believable, contiguous, connected.
I loved the iterated cubes and would liked to have seen them develop more with the song then sink into the water later. The tunnel was interesting but a bit odd under the street and the edge masking could have been tighter.
Overall a cohesive, gritty, moody scene well executed.

I agree. But, to be honest, I didn't find a better solution (which I'm capable to implement with Magic. I'm still a beginner).

I see your point. I've added the tunnel because I was worried that the viewer would have lost interest in the cubes when they'd run for too long. But I guess less is more in this case, and the tunnel itself has so much possibilities that it's probably worth its own dedicated video.

Thanks a lot for taking the time to watch and writing your feedback, I really appreciate that!
