Effects>Object or Effects>Selection. I don't remember if PdN has this native as I've installed a few of the free tools plug-ins developed by members of PdNs forums. Hit the Help menu, register/login and hit the Plugins - Publishing ONLY! forum. The most popular and useful ones are pinned to the top - look for the ones by pyrochild and BoltBait for the most useful tools. There's also a few CircleText ones available - those are good for making primary hull registries.

Re: Alternate movie era starfleet uniforms

I like art threads that offer mild revisionism of existing "prime Universe" concepts.

If I were to engage in such revisionism, I would go with the outer tunic being Navy Blue as standard-issue for Starfleet. Division colors would be shown through the color of the turtleneck and the rank boards on the tunic. Something would have to be done to change the look of the waist belt. It always looked cheesy to me; both the belt itself and the buckle. I would replace the buckle with the UFP seal and try something different for the belt.

That's just me.

Great idea - maybe that's why they already did that in the films.

Re: Alternate movie era starfleet uniforms

I liked the Jack Crusher variation from the episode "Family" [TNG], that was sans belt. It was also sans undershirt, which seems less comfortable to me, but maybe not. I've never worn a suit made of 24th Century fabric...

Re: Alternate movie era starfleet uniforms

Someone in an old thread posted a "post-movie/pre-TNG" uniform that I thought looked really good, so I promptly did it up in the three colors

Re: Alternate movie era starfleet uniforms

Oh Wow! How about doing the cadet uniform?

The TWOK uniform jacket always looked uncomfortable. The TWOK vest looked better.

Ironically Generations' vest is based on an idea from the Phase II tv series.

Last year I added black side panels to the TOS uniform jacket. Worked great. Then black shoulders. Worked great. Then the department colour stripes down the outer pant legs. Further than this, was yuck.

I think I'd prefer Kirk's in a dark gold but Spock's looks great!

Re: Alternate movie era starfleet uniforms

Could you make the 2nd cadet uniform pic the same size as the first?

Oh yeah, great job!
