Introducing Demoflex Ultimate

 

Demoflex ultimate builds onto our initial release of Demoflex, enhances its user experience, and adds functionality which arguably makes Demoflex ultimate the most advanced demo / replay environment ever made.Before approaching Demoflex ultimate, we went back and questioned which functions did, and did not work in our previous release.We referred to the comments and feedback provided by the reflex community which makes us feel secure and excited to tell you about a few changes and updates in more detail. To ensure a sustainable solution for years of movie making and replay analyzing to come, we quickly realized that the visual framework and the user interface of our previous release had to be fundamentally changed. Movie making tools such as After effects, and Premier Pro influenced the grid of Demoflex Ultimate in a positive way. We wanted to support every resolution from 4k down to 480p which only was possible by building a modular non-static user interface which scales accordingly. The Demoflex Ultimate user interface is split into three sections. The Replay section, the Edit section, and the Movie export; section. These sections can be scaled individually with-in the Demoflex UI which can now go full screen, snap to corners, and be scaled to whatever resolution the user chooses. Having this visual backbone will allow us to implement updates quickly which will be presented to you internally ( when available ) with a notification. So you will never have to go searching for build numbers. This also makes it easier for us as we know we have done everything to keep you on the latest build.

Another fundamental change is the introduction of the Movie export section. It was hard for us to decide what functionality really made sense to implement when handling large image sequences produced by Reflex, as there are sophisticated solutions to handling these such as the two applications mentioned above. What pushed us to implement this tool-set was our view, on what input files a movie maker would prefer when moving into their movie production application of choice.
Demoflex Ultimate is a collection of ideas and influence by prior movie making tools and the Reflex community in one environment. It was made to allow an increase of the games reach, by creating external media and enabling quick analysis of Reflex replays in an optimized environment. We are very excited to release Demoflex Ultimate and believe you will love it once you have become farmiliar with the extensive capabilities that are now available to you.

Dude... This gave me such a hard on. This is going to be so easy and fluid to work in, it's insane! Damn you guys are amazing. Now, off to find some replays! I know i've been bugging about a record command, but your demoflex.com database idea solves that and so much more! If moviemakers have easy access to demos across the board, with number of replaymarkers and good plays filtered.. oh my gosh....

 

I'd love to donate a few beers to you guys :D

Why i dont have replays on my folder?

I don't believe Demoflex is even working anymore. The developer unfortunately cannot manage the project at the moment due to work, I read somewhere.

I am certain he will be back, and if not, will hand the project over to someone else. I plan on using the tool to make some seriously sick Reflex clips. I have a popular YouTube account where I've been uploading frag videos since 2009. Very excited to get started with Reflex just need the tools to do it right. 

PLEASE BRING DEMOFLEX BACK!

The demo playback system isn't complete.

Currently, demos are recorded server-side, if the server has demo recording enabled and the appropriate "replays" folder in its directory.

Considering what you're asking and where you're asking it (thread) I think you're probably SOL regardless.
