this was done in max just for fun in 2 days till this point ,
I'm curious about what you think of the latest version! (although i posted the earlier tests as well if you're interested)
does it look dumb/simple/etc :) and if yes, why.. ?
i recommend you download them, and go fullscreen while playing, and set loop to pingpong ;) then watch for a few minutes ;)
www.p3d.hu/mandalaweb.mov (http://www.p3d.hu/mandalaweb.mov) - 2 megs - first version -scanline render
www.p3d.hu/mandala_v2.mov (http://www.p3d.hu/mandala_v2.mov%20) - 16 megs - second version - scanline render with more dof
www.p3d.hu/mandalaae_2.mov (http://www.p3d.hu/mandalaae_2.mov) - 20 megs - latest version - brazil render with aftereffects postprocessing.
sorry for the big filesizes, more compressed versions looked ugly because of the loss of sweet pixels... :)
here is a screen from max's viewports:
