Here's the laundry list of the last changes done...

1. Turned off gang-way lights (per you)
2. Turned off dock lights as well
3. Added flares to the B/C deck spots projecting the spots toward the bow of the saucer (very subtle, easy to miss)
4. Brightened spots a touch on ventral aft register on saucer
5. Increased glow a touch on interior nacelle(s) grills
6. Increased glow a touch on stern starboard and port running lights
7. Decreased glow on all ports (per Vektor)
8. Added lights to emulate the radiosity bounce-light coming from the domes onto the saucer (per darkwing_duck1)deg
Dance, my artistic puppet, dance!!!

(At some point you have to make it your own work...)

Thanks, guys!

And no, MadMan1701A. This is a very very personal project to me, and thus, she will not be released publicly. Sorry.

LOL, Prof.

But seriously, she is all mine as I am the one that accepts or vetoes any calls/suggestions, and I come up with the loin's share of the calls to begin with. Like I said, I do like and value the input of peeps that this gal means as much to as myself, but ultimately, at the end of the day, this is very much deg's vision of our gal, eh, no two-ways about it.

Cool. Think you'll try out the same type of lighting scheme you've done on the nacelles on the rest of the ship?

Awesome, as always. Too bad about the release, but I totally understand. Some things are so good, you have to keep them to yourself.

Did you use a different lens between those two shots? Because I keep switching back and forth to compare the two versions and the warp nacellles seem MUCH longer on the 5.2 model (which is looking great BTW).

Scott, .5 were all rendered in modo 302. .5.2 are all now rendered in LightWave 9.6. Even with the same lens settings, the cameras tend to behave a tad differently. Plus, while I had the .5 versions up for viewing reference while positioning the camera in LightWave, I did not hit a clone as far as positioning, as again, even though I plugged in the exact same position and rotation coordinates for the camera that I had in modo, it's never comes out exactly the same between the two programs, and thus I had to do some by-eye adjustments, eh.

Thanks, Prof!

Re: What's this...? TOS.5.2

Ahh, that's right; I'd forgotten that you were rendering iteration 5.2 in LightWave (mebbe you should have called it the deg 9.6 ).

Modo certainly seems to have a pretty good render engine but the LightWave version looks like a film was lifted from in front of the lens... or do you think that's just the new and improved textures you're introducing in this release?
