Default SciFi - Classic Viper Renders

These images leave me a bit upset. Why? Years ago, I helped out the original battlestargalactica.com webmaster with an April Fools joke on that site, with a revival in mind.

I rendered out 4 scenes for him showing "stills" from a "new" production.

Now to why I get a bit upset with these: This is the original size I rendered at, instead of going for a large scene size. In addition, the affect I used for the exhaust was lost in a PC crash, and I have yet to be able to replicate it

That exhaust does look great. The pics have an authentic feel too them - I'd probably have fallen for the April Fools

Lee Stringer's fav was the Viper Over the City one, and my favs are the two beach ones *L*

Glad you guys liked them.

I find the exhaust a bit 'overbearing' to be honest. Not transparent enough. It gives it the impression of being a solid block object rather than gaseous exhaust. Larger images would also be nice

Still, funky stuff. You don't see enough compositing around the place.

These shots remind me very much of the image quality seen in the original series. And that is the closest I've seen anyone get to recreating the freon gas spewed out of the shooting model for the exhaust.

nice work but i wud prefer more focus on the subjects.....wat i mean is as theaudience i shud be able to admire the subject in al its grandeur..even in the shots where u have 3 or 4 of the subjects try to keep one in such a place that the audience looks at it first and then the rest..like the lighting in the pics ..keep it up sir good work

Aye, but never forget the cardinal rule of placement: Never have an object dead center. It bores the viewer. Use the rule of thirds for dominant objects. This being said, I have broken the rule a few times myself

Paint them up like Thunderbirds and have them doing an opposing barrel roll in a high speed head to head pass.

Good job, I agree that the jets look pretty cool! try adding some motion blur or Dof to achieve better results
