Interesting story idea. Any reason why the NX01 and the Enterprise?

Well ....besides the models bein' readily available....not much has been done with ideas on the TOS/and Enterprise crossover.......so besides learnin' how to work the animation techniques in LW it seemed an area that would be fun to explore.....

Good on you. That's how I like to learn too. I was just imagining a great story as to how the two ships might be in the same movie. Something to do with Time distortions and furbies maybe?

Even simpiler......as the NX class ships are being phased out the Constitution class ships are being phased in........simple timing would indicate that they would have to be in sevice with each other for a short period.....this would be during that period.....

I think I like this background better.......so now I will begin the effects and motions.....I have 4 cameras positioned to catch the ships and the overall action.......the intent is to have some explosive damage to the NX01 and fire coming from the Klingon and from the NCC1701.... Appropriate sheild effects.....etc......

You need an Enterprise model with a few less smoothing errors and segmentation problems.

The second background does indeed look better.

Click on the Resources tab at the top of your screen, click on downloads, then meshes, then search for Enterprise. There are several for you to choose from.

But you're going to include Tribbles anyway, right...?
Looking nice mate, I'm inclined to agree with Rigel. The second backdrop is MUCH better, and a new Enterprise is needed.
If I were you I'd try including some DoF (Depth of Field) on the images, like blurring the ships you don't want us to focus on. It'll look more realistic and give a definitive focal point.
I'm curious, are you using an HDR for reflections? I get the feeling that it will look incredible if you do that. Worth a try?
Nice work so far, keep it up!

Not discounting here of course, but another good resource is www.trekmeshes.ch

To MattMan....the current NCC1701 comes from Trek Meshes.....and I have got other things from them I think that this model is the least immpressive I got from there.....To Mook..... pre- Tribble and Pre Kirk ....this ...of neccessity is Pike's Enterprise.....

I sometimes visit www.spacebattles.com they have many crossover battles. B5/Trek/SW... Some were very interesting... it would be cool to see some ot the talent here throw something together...

Can't wait to see your animation...

that's an improvement, the models over at trekmeshs sometimes are low quality in my opinion. That last still is very dark but looks good.

Okay here is a set of updated stills.......still working on the FX but do have a beginning on the movements...these stills are all from frame 0 and would be the start of the sequence..... having some fun with the FX as in getting the right look and parenting the FX so that when I move the ship the FX goes with it (in the case of the NX01) but it is comin' along much as I want it....surprise on my part....LOL

Well Rigel if this awesome site didn't keep providing more material that fits my idea I probably would have posted the 30 seconds I have and been done with it...... but take the fact that I have had no Klingon Bridge so you only see three Klingons from an Away Party trying to sabatoge the NX-01.......Which almost never got goin' cause I didn't have hallways....and my modeling is still developing so certain things I know better than to try..... Well....Now look what this site has done....... So I now have more Klingons to make and more animation to do.....
