Looking really great. I really like the detail you're putting into this. My computer would crash with that kind of detail.

Hi Paldav

Looks great although it's probably a test, i have something you could use;
-The animation needs a bit more longer archs(more curvy if you will) i have attached an image with a possible trajectory for this.
A reason for the falcon to turn back the way they came would be nice aswell, maybe some laserblasts fired at them?

looks promising though

Thanks for your post...

They say animation is more of a dark art than a science, and i believe them!

i built up the animation sequentialy, and kept tweaking it, but when you go bak after a day or so you think... how did i miss that etc...

thanks for the input, but i will say, please go back and review the only 3 proper star wars films in existence... luke has just mentaly communticated with Lea his sister that it might be a good idea to pick him up, because the bus stops on bespin are a little precarious!!

I like everything except the laser beams and the explosions they make. They look composited and not part of the same image. they are too soft with too much transparency perhaps, especially the explosions. But if that was just to get an idea of the position or the scene in general nm my comments.

Maybe use a transparency map to give some transparency to the edges leaving the middle of the beams solid. Or use a glow effect or something like that. Im sure you'll come up with something.

good work!

It's all looking really cool and now that I have finished a long running project I can get back to texturing that Star Destroyer propper.

P.S. Am I the only one that things the AT-AT is a little thin?
