Thank you for this wonderful idea of making contest using only built in sources and effects. Personally I explored that this is very powerful thing just by itself already some time ago but just now it allowed me to dig deeper and try to push it to the limits of my machine (until 20fps on MBP late 2011).
So here is the my final best result. I call it RGB Nova Explosion. It is composed of 4 layers of goodness plus one Feedback layer between. Composition has Brightness&Contrast plus Trails (originally ON, in provided file OFF) applied.
There are few extras in the compo (renamed to extra 1 to 4). The best four of all what I had. They happen on the way while producing the final result.

extra 2 :::
extra 3 :::
extra 4 :::
PS> BTW guys I really struggled with the quality on YouTube or Vimeo. My compo was 720p, used Syphon recorder (less fps drop than with native REC button) with Apple Intermediate Codec on 30fps and 720p, than Adobe Media Encoder CS5 with YouTube Widescreen HD preset, looked decent after all this, but after upload all messed up! Actually watching other guys uploads it looks pretty much all screwed up. Do you have tips? Or maybe it's time to get into some blog post How-to... Not speaking about loosing colours! Had to enhance Saturation by +1 on all...

hi 2 all!
thanks for the great motivation to learn something new..
i tried something little different than classic vj loops - its more like digital naivist motion paitings
sorry about framerate - my pc handled it only about 8 fps, so i re-rendered it into 30. at the violet composition you must click randomize option few times to get the right face and in the moon comp give some speed to stars for a while
compositions included - its allways first column..hope u like it!
