Did you happen to do any of the stuff in tonight's episode? The large spaceship that breaks apart or anything like that, or did you just do the first episode?

My stuff is in every episode. I modelled all the spaceships and their textures and modelled all the creatures except the yellow one, I designed the creatures, painted galaxy matte paintings and the large city scapes and I pretty much textured every aspect there is to see in 3d.

It was probably the biggest undertaking Ive done in the shortest amount of time on a production (6 months)

Im currently sorting thru some bits for my site. Its currently out of action so once its up and running I'll throw what I have up there. Unfortunately the FX company I was at doing all this stuff closed down a bout a month back so Im unble to get any hi def stuff, I can only get it off the web

cheers

no worries Jay,

Orbit eh?? murambi? I might check it out. I use camstudio which is good but the end compression is a real biatch. For 3 minutes of record it bumps up to 200M!!!! Then I have to use Nero to export as WMV in DVD quality which brings it back down to 40-50M. Thats why I put up a thread about compression, didnt really hit with anyone by the looks.

C'mon Jay Im waiting for more development.....bahahahaha. The stuff you are doing is fantastic mate. I showed the missus the other night and she just blinked!!! I had to explain what you had done and that it was (exponentially) 100 times more per screen than my lego model. I think it is lost on some people how much effort goes into these things?

Good work mate, superb, hope it gets you more work.

cheers bullet

Looks good mate, I like it. It looks like my brothers (though he is blind) so it doesnt have all of the gadgetry. How the hell or where did you get the refs for that??

cheers bullet

Thanks Guys

Bullet: The studio I did the work for took lots of reference images, and they also scanned the wheel chair, which didnt come out very well, with Hawking in it.

I'll post more up later....including the scans
