Cool shuttle! Interesting idea on the bussards, with that clamshell cover that opens, I assume, only for warp flight.

It would be cool to take this Enterprise model and make it as high res as the Abramsprise model.
Yeah, one day I might re-build it, but I'm really happy with the way it looks. Back in early 2010 when I started building the model, I hadn't figured out subdivision modeling yet, so everything on this one was box modeled.

Yep, you're right.

I have a couple of videos I'll work on posting for you guys... I have a movie trailer, and an opening credits sequence that I put together out of test footage.

Later,

Re: The Prime Alternative

Me again... videos are up.

http://www.madshipyard.com/ThePrimeA...ve/theship.htm

They look pretty good... Vimeo didn't chop them down too much. My favorite is the middle one, where you can watch the model just spin around forever.

I did these just for fun... The 3D showcase one was basically a test of the specular textures and the navigation lights, but turned out so cool I had to finish it. The TV Intro one is just a bunch of test clips that I made, edited together.

Later guys,

-Ricky

Re: The Prime Alternative

I like it, but it wouldn't work in a modern movie. No matter what one does to the TOS ship, it's too simply functional and dated.

Holy crap. The videos were simply stunning. Please, please, please take this to the next level and go hi-rez. Your work could easily be movie quality.

Awesome!

Re: The Prime Alternative

Beautifully done. But the slanted warp-nacelle pylons never worked for me on the original ship, they just look out of place.

Wow. This is amazing. Could this be a Internet movie done sometime in the future because this would be great. I can not wait to see more. Fantastic work.

Re: The Prime Alternative

Thanks guys.

The original videos were 720p, and look a lot sharper than these. I might try to upload them to youtube instead.

The idea we had with the wallpapers, were that they were storyboards for what would become a movie at some point. I wanted to actually have an animation for each one, but I just ran out of time.

Actually Youtube compresses vids horribly so you might not want to

Now see, I totally disagree with this. I think this design would work very well. I much prefer this to what we got in Abram's movie.

This shows respect, I don't know what that abomination we got on screen showed.

Vektor and deg3D have proven otherwise countless times already.

Hmm.. might wanna nag at deg for some updates...

Madman, just continue to work on this thing, it will be awesome.
