Default Star Wars - Twelve Parsecs

PART I of a series of images I have planned.

I tried to -somewhat- recreate the hyperspace vortex/effect from The Force Awakens. This is literally just a cylinder with a ton of try-and-error procedural textures (and some post work in Photoshop). Due to the number of textures, the render took quite a bit of time, but I think the end-result warranted the wait. . . .

I tried to go for a look between the original Trilogy and the latest incarnation.


COMPOSITION: The scene was entirely composed and rendered in Lightwave, with some post-work in Photoshop

MESHES: YT-1300 Millennium Falcon by Andy Crook, Hyperspace Vortex by me.

Weird, I've been working on a very similar shot recently, but yours looks far superior. Looks great.

It's all a matter of patience; plus some Photoshop trickery post-render. Wish it came out of Lightwave like that, but that's not the case. Apparently there is a very simple way to do this in After Effects without endless procedural layers , but. . . I'm not that familiar with the software.

Thanks!

I had a bit of additional fun with the picture.

I can't help it, I like the wireframe renderer (and layer masks).

Thank you! I had the idea at random, and I was a little amazed myself how well it turned out. Wish all my experiments would go that smoothly. . . .
