Despite having a reputation of being hard, writing demos is in reality not difficult at all. There are some pitfalls though, and building a complete demo from scratch can be a daunting task for a first-timer. This seminar concentrates on the basics of building a working demo framework that can be used as a base for any kind of demo project, with emphasis on simplicity, extensibility and easiness for the programmer to rapidly develop entire demos. Topics covered, among others are: Resource loading and handling, effects and timeline management, demo synchronization with music and effect parameter tweaking.
