The first filled vector demo?

I guess Elite or Starglider II were the first games with filled vectors, but which was the first filled vector demo to appear on the Amiga?

Was it the 'Don't panic' demo by Thrust?

I have a vague memory of the first demo I personally saw that had vector graphics, it was a Cryptoburners demo with a few smallish objects, and a face if I remember correctly. What was that called?

A bit later on Promax of Kefrens did the first "XOR lines+one fill" convex vectors in one frame (Megademo 8).

Anyone KNOW who were first? It would be interesting to know

Ahh, stencil vectors. Tomas (Uncle Tom) says he's not very proud of that music, because of the name he thought it was gonna be a spoof demo, otherwise he would have made a more 'serious' song. Personally, I think it fits the demo pretty well.

One of the first filled vector demos I remember is Universal Pictures: http://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=10260

It is also one of my favorite demos, because of nostalgic reasons I guess.

Do you know what he's doing these days? If it's still music, I'd like to hear some newer stuff if possible.

Try a little game called Triclops, released on fred fish disk 35 on the 9th September 1986, that's the first vector game I know of and it ran beautifully on my A1000

It's in the zone if anyone wants to try it...
