Screen compo...?

my screen....taken from a video
_________________________________

Style: smooth Fullspeed
Coppers: 7660 (4000 are the track, the rest is scenery)

Loops: 14
Smooth transitions: 34

MT stuff
Intro: 55 seconds pure text and camera movement
Ingame: just loop cameras
Outro: side-bars with speed indicators and tons of cameras with fogging effect and blur
_____________________________________

The intro is inspired by... hmm... well, you all know this "getting faster" szenes and I thought this might look nice. In fact, this first part was done within half an hour and is not very complex. Also I wrote down some remarkable (?) smooth tracks that deserve my respect and partially inspired my.
The second part was originally intended to be the last one. I copied my hand-writing into it using over 220 text blocks. I wanted to make it more mind-blowing by making the text look like "written at the moment", but that was too fiddly for me, although it is not hard to implement... it is just the "Mediatracker endurance form".

After this was finished, I still wasn't satisfied. A third part had to be created. This is the Heart part. A simply TTF heart distorted using Sony Vegas was my prototype. I layed ~100 text blocks around it as a shape and, voila, there it was, moving slightly as the camera shifts.
Still not satisfied yet, the "circling text" effect was the next step. Unfortunately I had no clue and no prototype to implement this, so the only way was trial and error and... a sheet of paper combined with a pencil. I thpught some hours about that and used my tremendous geometry skills from the 4th grade and patched something together. More time went until I recognized that circling text is time-constant, not location-constant. Ah, nevermind...

The flashing X letters are inspired (if not copied all the way) from the introduction of a scientific series called "Terra X" (you may guess where the X comes from). This took another 100-120 text blocks, but I'm damn proud of it, because it has some kind of bloom effect.^^
Then I leaned back and watched my work. I admit that I'm not fully happy with it and there are many things to improve, but I don't think that you mind.

Or, to say it very short: This is the first intro that is not just some geometric shapes bound together (like "EverLasting Smoothness" or "The Cross of Changes"), but a real piece of art, something with soul and made with love.

The track itself is more of an experiment... again. Still using many well-known elements it shouldn't be really hard to learn. The really new things are the double jump combos, but the "jump to nothing" might shock you at first try. At least I hope it leaves a deep impression.
I started to build this track in at the beginning of May and finished it ..uum...5 or 6 weeks later. The last two weeks were used for the whole ... text movement. First I thought that scenery is not necessary, because it just wastes coppers. But our dear Ivica started a one-man petition to add some, and so did I.

The reason for setting the difficulty to Expert is the length of the track. All in all no jump is really hard, maybe the platform jumps are (pretty less overspeed possible). It is the second smooth endurance fullspeed track I know (correct me if I'm wrong).
If you want more action in this direction, have a look at this.

Finally... I run out of chars and don't want to lose to any words
Just try to reach the finish. There is no reason to hunt the record... simply enjoy your ride That's all I want to achieve.
So... there is only one thing left to say (or better ask):

Where is the rest of the inflatable?

The day I will finish this track I would be very happy but I am afraid I couldn´t.
It would be the ultimative "accolade" of TMN.
