Through the cracks on YouTube/Demoscene High Quality Videos

through the cracks was released at the 2016 revision demo party in Saarbrücken. It won the third place in the pc demo compo. It consists of black and white geometry. No textures were used. Because of all the fine details in the shapes and the moiré patterns this demo is pretty much unwatchable in any compressed video format.

If you really want to see it the way it was intended – you need to download the executable and run it on your own computer. I haven’t tested it recently but this should even run on the internal GPUs of many recent Intel Processors. It was made in “tooll2” which was recently released as an open source software. If you’d like to try it: Here is a website and a forum dedicated to tooll2:




Demoscene? PC Demo? Still? Tooll?

What does all of this mean?


The demoscene is an international computer art subculture focused on producing demos: self-contained, sometimes extremely small, computer programs that produce audiovisual presentations. The purpose of a demo is to show off programming, visual art, and musical skills. Demos (...) are shared at festivals known as demoparties, voted on by those who attend and released online. (see Wikipedia)

PC-Demo means that the above video is actually just a screen-recording of a program that can run in real time on pretty much any PC. You can download this program run it on your own PC if you have Windows 7 (or newer) installed.

Tooll is the (realtime 3D Animation)-Software which I used to make this PC-Demo.
