Just a first try.

Hi. I made an effort to write my first preset. This one is based on blank preset. Here you go.

Hi, and welcome to this forum. Sorry it's a bit quiet around here at the moment and there is no welcome committee.

When I came here first I thought milkdrop was so fantastic everybody must be keen to write presets... but actually there are only a few active members. Keep it up - hope to see you again.

see my first post on this board:
http://forums.winamp.com/showthread....hreadid=269749

well, the presets in there were made for MD1.0 so the aspect ratio issues spoil a lot of effects, but i did not get very much response as well.
i guess there would be more activity in here if Milkdrop was Winamps primary visualization plugin and not AVS.
but hey, the less activity here the more you contribute to the community.
writing presets is very much of a solitary activity and as for me it is also an excellent getaway.
But in the end it is up to you, what you make of it.
So feel free to leave also your experimental stuff - I'm quite certain some fine remixes will emerge

And if you've got any questions...
just show what you've done so far

Wow, you did a powerful start
AVS is not working on my pc, so it seems I got lucky
I am uploading one more. This one is kinda better.

Hello and welcome.
It's a bit unfair to ask for things instead of doing them, but in the fisrt weeks I missed a lot a sort of "Milkdrop for dummies" manual. A good website would also be nice, naturally.
But on the other hand I enjoy the forgotten-pioneer feeling.

AVS does not dot work on any pc, I recon a power-point presentation gives you better frame rate.

Okay this one is a lot better.

I made (not used!) a beat-finder code.
That's how it works:
q2=abs(q1-abs((bass+mid+treb)/3-1));
q1=abs((bass+mid+treb)/3-1);
q2=if(above(q2,1.5),2+q2,0);

It is based on the difference between the volumes
of the previous and the current frame.

Here's the result.

actually the q_ variables DO NOT carry values from frame to frame. any other variables will do that for you.

furthermore be careful with expression like

fnord = sin(time*(1+my_var));

as the time increases the influence of my_var will also increase and eventually this expression will result in spastic changes of fnord. as for colors this may be a fun concept, but better try sin(time + my_var) with my_var specifying the phase shift.

in your preset the changes don't make such a great impact, i just wanted to let you know.

there's nothing wrong with using other peoples code, i once made an effort on working out a beat detection snippet and it turned out quite hard - check out this thread: http://forums.winamp.com/showthread....hreadid=302422
nevertheless i firstly had to discover that on my own too

I've been also quite impressed by the beat detection code by Martin.

keep it up!

Okay, I fixed it now. There is no major difference, as Flexi predicted, but I'm uploading it for the possible songs that do a difference. and for the ethics .
