View Full Version : Jump point
12th February 2008, 12:48 AM
Last evening I started to play with particles and lights, bit by bit I made a space jump point where spaceship comes. I think that this is good start, and I will continue to make it better?

Yes this looks already good, but you should get the "black" wormhole a bit faster in his right scale. Also you can give it a texture, a light texture that it really looks like a wormhole or something like that.
But in case it's already good keep going on like this...

I want to think that it is a blackhole. New version ready, same address:

But a black hole is something you can't escape from. So it couldn't be a black hole. And it also would be 3dimensional and not a disc.
Sorry, its the physicist in me.^^

Because light can't escape from there you see only a flat black disc, but it is quite dull looking in animation. If it could be possible to use blackhole to travel, you dont go to actual blackhole. you use blackholes event horizon to warp time and dimensions. Perhaps right animation is.... you see first fast blur around blackhole, and then a ship ( like a rubber band) emerges and transform to actual shape?

I didn't say, that it looks like a disc. I mean the paticels for expample. Why do they flow away in just one direction?
And you should see gravitational-lens effects.
Well, ok it used the eventhorizon, but the problem with the escap is already there.
Don't be cross with me! I just want to discuss the physical backdrop. :)

Kojocci, can you upload your content to the F3D server and post it here please, for this and future threads. I for one can't access your site while I'm at work, and so I can't see what you've posted. Aside from giving you better exposure it keeps our threads secure for archive's sake.
I'd also recommend posting some thumbnails of your animation so people know what it is they're investing their time in downloading.

Very interesting idea...I really like it. Can't wait until you get a little further on it.

Meurig..... how can I post here my animations? They are flash-movies. And if somebody looks them from my site, there is no delay, movie starts when you come there?

The single file upload utility should be able to handle .flv files..
..the only catch is there's no mechanism in place to stream them, so people would have to save them to their computers, then use vlc player to open them
