Default SpaceShip challenage update

Gone back to try and pull this model to a more usable level. It was my third place entry for a older challenge here.

Here is were I left it.





The biggest problem at the time was having to render out the ship in 5 parts as my old rig would not take it.

The new rig handles it fine so no more problems there.

Just rendered a simple fly bye.

Watch it here

Just trying to figure out how to do some cool engine effects to comp on to the back (Any tips or tut`s would be gladly accepted at this point as I am at a loss right now), and maybe put some smaller ship flying past. This is def a W.I.P at this point not a finished thing so crits please.

What type of effect are you looking for tweetytunes, if you are looking for a jet plane exhaust I could have a look at the space ship I did and get some of the setting from that. I should make notes.................dave

Looks nice, I would slow down the speed however.
Keep in mind, big things move slower than small things, it had shocky movement as well, but that could be because of bandwidth issues

Yer jet like I think would be perfect daverave.

mastone - yer it be a lot slower was going for just the feel of the thing.

One thing though - what do you mean with the "it had shocky movement" - I have no idea what you mean.

As for bandwidth it is a very small file (2.2 meg) but I am using 20 meg broadband

I mean the ship moved like it was skipping frames , but that could be because of the compression you put on the movie ( to heavily compressed) or because the bandwidth of your server is to low or that my internet speed is to slow which in both cases causes lagging, or what I call shocky movement

OMG thank you.

I wish I was more awake right now to jump straight into maya and get going with this - it looks perfect for what I want. Skipped though it and the end result perfect match to what is in my head.

Thank you for taking the time and making a video for me - it will most certainly help me out with this a long way.




And it was your 1000 post aswell - bonus
