Several of the videos use music by Kevin MacLeod [incompetech.com]. Check it out!
All the videos are rendered in 1920x1080. Wobblerne 2 and Superhero should be played back at 50 fps, the rest at 60 fps.
Below is a selection of my videos that are available on YouTube. The Greatest Hits playlist has them all for easy access. Subscribe to my YouTube channel if you're feeling lucky. I usually release 1-3 videos per year.
Julia Quaternions, a bit more polished. Even flashier coloring scheme and plane shadows.
1080p60 on RTX 3070, 50% load. Music by C64 and Amiga legend
Chris Huelsbeck [bandcamp.com].

1080p60 fractals on a dainty Jetson Nano. Uses all ARM cores and the GPU in parallel.
Short tech demo: We went overboard with the 1987 styling. Because we can. And we really don't care.

Sjur Julin and I recovered two old Triumph videos from VHS in 2019. I'm pretty happy with the result. Rescue your old tapes now, before they become totally unwatchable!
Superhero by Morten Johnsen and Wobblerne 2 by Morten Johnsen and Ivan Moen were released at The Gathering 1998:
I've made some Julia Quaternion respins over the years. I took the shader code by Keenan Crane, converted it to C, made a threaded renderer, fixed a couple of bugs and used positions by Paul Bourke. The rotation code was my own work: Doing it in 4D is very complicated, so I did it in 3D instead. If the only tool in your toolbox is atan2, every problem looks like... err:
Some dork claimed it was impossible to do the
floating balls effect on the TILE-Gx based
video conferencing system, the SX-80. It wasn't. They didn't use it. 1 1/2 core somewhat unoptimized 8-bit
SIMD code ftw! Could probably be squeezed into 1 core, but that ship has sailed.

Fractals gone wild. Using a custom multi-threaded ARM rendering routine that switches to 64 bit
math when the world... sorry, 32 bit is not enough.

Torus Journey, from ShaderToy, squeezed into the TX2 at 60 fps.
Info: News 12 January 2018
The Xmas Demo 2017 Remastered. Everything runs in 60fps. A ridiculous amount of dubious optimizations
were used to squeeze every bit of performance out of a simple NVidia Jetson TX2 GPU with 256 cores.
Based on code from ShaderToy, Keenan Crane and myself.

Test of NVidia ShadowPlay in 2560x1440. Recording from the game Age of Conan. This is what happens when you screw up badly. Everybody gets frozen and it's game over.
Julia fractals. Depth 2048, rendered in 4K and downscaled. Not real-time at all.
I played around with the
Thorn fractal code by Paul Bourke [paulbourke.net]
on the TX1 GPU. Real-time ofc. And some real-time Julia Quaternions, also on the TX1 GPU.
Info: News 21 July 2017
Is it possible to trace 128 spheres on the TX1 GPU? Yes, by using the CPU to do some
preprocessing before passing it to the GPU.
Also a binary fixed point raytracer on the TILE-Gx mega-multicore CPU that can do 40 spheres.
And some random super simple physics simulations using the TX1 engine.

How to stress the TX1 GPU maximally. Also, it looks pretty cool. Careful, things might catch fire:

I made an OpenGL TX1 port of Quake that ran on some Cisco hardware and sorted out all the technical issues. Top Cisco brass watched it. Nobody gave a fuck. It worked pretty well:
