Re: Intrepid Class Bridge (Sketchup)...

It looks really good. Just from the renders, I wouldn't have guessed right away that you were doing this in SU. Just out of curiosity, what render program are you using?

Very impressive work. Nice to see real curved surfaces and such attention to detail.

I suspected it might be V-ray. SU and V-ray produce some great results.

Re: Intrepid Class Bridge (Sketchup)...

After a good few months away from this, we're back on track. I've just built a new PC so it's much easier to work on this now, it was getting too much for my old rig and renders were taking ages.

So anyway the corridor next to harry's console is finished, and I've started the whole ceiling again, this one is far more accurate, here's how we're looking so far...





I've also pulled the view screen out, that'll need doing again as it was too narrow before.

Lewis.

Which colors are you aiming for? The bridge looks quite different before and after the color adjustment (compare set snapshots to some episode screencaps).

I'm going for as close to screen accurate as I can, as technically that's how they 'should' look.

Re: Intrepid Class Bridge (Sketchup)...

I've started adding the upper 'ring lights' as I'm calling them, the blue ones here anyway. I've also found a more natural way of creating the light, as opposed to just making the material emissive. The light now essentially sits behind a diffusing filter which while subtle, looks much better and more realistic imo...

Re: Intrepid Class Bridge (Sketchup)...

Ok, got a fair bit done on this today, done loads of re-work. Doors have all become 6" narrower, making them 3ft wide now which seems far more accurate. Also re done the turbolift area next to Tuvok's console. The console between the chairs has gone in, and I've also done afair bit more to Tom's console too, but thats far from finished yet.
