Here’s a short flyby clip of the heavy battlecruiser Anylise with a few of the SFX in place. I have quite a bit of art piled up at the moment, so I’ll probably be posting at least once a week for awhile, but this test looked so good I just had to share it. I was very happy with this video– it rendered overnight at 720p, which is very impressive, considering that I was using bokeh and glow effects (also, the materials were not baked so my poor i7 had to deal with shaders). I’m finally starting to become truly comfortable with Blender, though there’s still so much more to learn. The timing needs to be faster on the running lights, and I realized I need to add some sort of visible propulsion system (probably going to go with some sort of ion engine a la Star Wars, rather than Trek-ian glowing panels, since this is not an especially advanced ship). I’m also working on the windows. Not sure how they should be configured, and since this is basically a warship, it’ll have far fewer portals than, say, the Enterprise. I wish I would’ve thought to add a destination (maybe a gas giant planet or a barren asteroid) at the end of the clip. All in all, I just wish the shot was longer. I can’t wait to start working on a battle sequence!
