Star Trek: The Doomsday Machine - Special Edition Screencaps

I wanted to start a thread here in the Art Forum for screencaps and "beauty shots" (when I have time) from my "Doomsday Machine" project. These shots below are from the teaser and main credits which debut tonight (Friday, June 12, 2009). (ETA: The videos are online... please follow the link to view!)


The Enterprise



Nothing left but rubble... and asteroids



The Enterprise enters System L-374



"Every solar system in this sector blasted to rubble... and still no sign of the Constellation."



Captain, I think we just found the Constellation...



"She was attacked!"



"Red alert... red alert... man your battlestations!"



These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise...



It's five year mission: to explore strange new worlds...



To boldly go where no man has gone before!

Re: Star Trek: The Doomsday Machine - Special Edition Screencaps

The blue twinge irks me personally, but I certainly can't complain, given that it's appropriate given the color of the main star. Besides, everything else is not only beautiful but visibly improved over your previous stuff, though I question the appearance of....um, scanlines on the main viewer?

Re: Star Trek: The Doomsday Machine - Special Edition Screencaps

Downloading now ..... Prof, I've been following your work on this since the "get go". I'm really looking forward to seeing this. What I've seen to date (and remember fondly) has been outstanding. Good luck on your continuing work. I'm really looking forward to your take on the battle sequences. It will be cool to see how it compares to what CBS Digital did on their "TOS-redux".

Can't wait for more!

Beautiful. And I certainly don't want to sound like i'm trying to knock down your work, but you might want to work on your texturing a bit. Most of the shots looked good, but a couple looked plastic. But all in all, wonderful work. I'm not sure i'd have the patience or the skill for such a project.

I really liked the bussard effect you achieved. Those stills will make nice wallpaper images.

Re: Star Trek: The Doomsday Machine - Special Edition Screencaps

Just watched it. Looks great. I imagine you aren't going to use the new BD footage because that would require all-new traveling mattes for the rotoscoped sequences, correct?

EDIT: Scratch that. I fiddled with the FFdshow codecs and it works fine now, so I'm watching it with vibrant colors now.

It's actually more of a lighting problem, and I'll bet I know which shots you're talking about--the two where the Enterprise first flies into System L-374 and later when she approaches the derelict Constellation. The nearly head-on angle between the camera and the L-374 light source just doesn't look quite right on the engineering hull, especially in the latter shot.

Those actually were two of the first "redos" and they're the ones I'm least satisfied with, but they're OK enough, and besides, I told myself, "self, you're not going to endlessly re-tweak everything or you'll never finish!" So what I'm basically doing here is trying to get it as good as I can, but move on after a certain point. If I have time left at the end of my project before my deadline (which is a nebulous target of "beat the 2009 Star Trek Blu-Ray release"), then I'll come back and fiddle with some of this stuff. Thanks for the feedback!

Well that, and the season two Blu-Ray box set won't even be out until September... I'm a rolling stone and cannot gather teh moss. Glad you figured out your color problem

Re: Star Trek: The Doomsday Machine - Special Edition Screencaps

F'ing awesome cool!

In the opening shot, I like how you push into the Enterprise to match the camera push when there's a cut onto the bridge.

I was just going to mention that.

Very nice work, Professor. Are those sparks on the Constellation supposed to be from a hull breach on the bridge?

Re: Star Trek: The Doomsday Machine - Special Edition Screencaps

G_R_E_A_T work Professor Moriarty, I seriously appreciate all the time and work that goes into that video. Camera movement was fantastic. My only very minor crit, is that the Enterprise is generally over-lit. It lacks enough light-dark contrast on the hull which as mentioned earlier, gives it a plastic-ey look at times. Maybe the specularity is a touch high.

What software did you use to track your CGI on the Enterprise viewscreen? Or did you roto-scope it by hand?

IMO your video is better that the TOS-R redo.

That's what I supposed it was.

Very nice job, Professor!
