Default Star Trek - Prologic9 Renders the Enterprise

I wasn't sure what to do with these and decided to make one thread for all the various little shots I whip up. The last one is me starting to redo some of the shots from the show.

the model is fantastic, but seriously, there's waaaay too much ambient light in the first two - the model almost looks self illuminated, and the specular bloom is kind of making it look like I'm viewing the model through frosted glass.

How are you setting up the lighting?

I have to agree with S_Matt on lighting. It also seems on the first image there is a polygon error or something. On the far left end of the hull...Other than that nice model and textures.. well done

I don't think that's an error... it looks like a shadow cast by the starboard warp nacelle dome.

I like the first two. The first one's a tad bright, but they're both definitely in the spirit of the show. They look fine, especially if the ship is within a star system. The third one looks good too, but definitely darker than what you'd normally see in the show. Call that one a shot in interstellar space.

I'd work on this some more but I'm leaving town in the morning. The warp effect is fun, it needs a little more tuning for the TOS I think. For a long time I had all the various windows and lights streaking but it just wasn't working;

I think its a greate model and as for the lighting it fits to me. The first one could be reflecting light from a near by star.
Would love to see more of your work

Sweet ! I love that rainbowy lensflary thingy. I have tried to create something like that for my old warp animation. Is that out of Knoll LightFactory or something similar?


For a still shot I wouldn't even add any streaks to the Enterprise. For an animation it would be great when the Enterprise turns into a mix of a heavy blurred ship and clear, sharp streaks of all the windows and lights.

I don't think the impulse streaks are angled right. Other than that I think the image is great!

Sigh, it makes me want to redo my enterprise

Nice picture; it's so 1960's.

Groovy, man.

I think they're right geometrically, they just don't look right. I'd be tempted to kind of cheat a little and yaw the Enterprise a hair counter-clockwise so that the impulse streaks are closer to parallel with the red stripes on the engineering hull. Other than that, I love it!

edit: And I might be tempted to make the impulse streaks fade a bit more. Leave them the same length, but just fade them so that by the end they are just visible kind of thing. Goes better with having no other lights on the ship streaking, IMHO.

Well the brightest flare is Knoll Light Factory, but that ring of RGB streaks and the warp streaks were modeled and rendered with the ship.

Now that I'm thinking about it there wasn't really anything I did that couldn't be replicated in an animation, I'll have to think about trying that.

I do not recall that effect on that 1701. It is well done, but not psychedelic.

Here's the Enterprise and an Asteroid. The Asteroid was easy and fun to do. I like Asteroids.



Asteroid.

The Asteroid one looks like it's almost taken directly from TOS o.O... That mesh looks soooo much like the orginal filming model... if not better =O!

Woah. Great!

And the asteroid looks excellent! Is that displacement done with a texture map or procedurals?

Displacements were texture maps made from mars!
