Re: Unnamed Project/Iliad

Yikes! I'm working against the weather here, summer came a bit too early.. I probably don't have more than another month of usable rendering weather. Once it starts getting 90(+)F out it's just too hot to run my desktop!! Thing really cranks out heat when it's rendering non-stop

We had snow in October. That didn't mean we had a snowy winter. We are hot in March. That may or may not mean we have a hot spring. Stay tuned. Europe had a very cold winter. We got their weather, they got ours. England is across the Atlantic... from CANADA. And not the most Southern part of Canada. New York is across from the South of France. Texas and the Gulf Coast are across from the northern half of the Sahara.

But that's not a usual weather pattern. I am not denying global warming, but the weird weather here is more associated to the weird solar cycle we are having. The sunspot cycle was supposed to have peaked in 2010... 11 years after the last peak, 1999. But instead, it's continued to go up the last two years. More sunspots = hotter sun. But if the wind comes to the US from the north, we'll get weather that is CLOSER to normal.

We just got hit by a big solar flare. That also messes with our weather and temperature.

Stay tuned. We could suddenly have no sunspots and go into a second 'little ice age'... a period when the earth was very cold and people thought Galileo was seeing things when he claimed there were spots on the sun. (No sunspots, cooler sun...)

Re: Unnamed Project/Iliad

Well, whenever and however summer gets here, that's when I have to stop animating.

I built my desktop with raw rendering power in mind, so despite being 3 years old, it's still crazy fast.. but it puts out so much heat that it actually manages to offset the air conditioning in the summer.

edit: I still have plenty of time to come up with a work around though.

Re: Unnamed Project/Iliad

Spent a little time redressing Prologic9's proxy shuttle, same shuttle as in the asteroid animation. It's a simple model, but I like the lines. Just different enough from a Class F to pass for a different type of shuttle.

Redid the registry, obviously. Also added some landing gear, opening doors, pop-out headlights, and a simple interior. All based on requirements of the scene

Thought it's worth mentioning that while much of the time I build my own stuff, when a high quality mesh is already publicly available, as is frequently the case for exterior models of trek ships, I tend to start from that and modify as needed with credit of course to the original modelers.

Re: Unnamed Project/Iliad

Not an update: Just a confirmation that I am in fact still working on this

Real life tends to get in the way from time to time, but none-the-less I'm committed to getting at least the first few segments finished by the end of the summer

Re: Unnamed Project/Iliad

Ok. Got a little sidetracked, but I'm back at it.

Decided the sets for Earth Outpost 7 didn't "feel" real enough. And since it's meant to be a big part of the first scene, thought I may as well work on that..















I think next I need to knock out some high detail characters.. I've got a pretty good pipeline for generating lightwave compatible character rigs at this point, so getting them rigged shouldn't be much of an issue

Re: Unnamed Project/Iliad

thanks!! I'll see if I can get some animating done this weekend. Still planning on having the first scene or two done by the end of the summer

Anyone have any thoughts regarding the style of characters? This guy (see below) and the person in the EVA suit (see previous youtube video) are basically the only two characters in the first scene.. so I'm going to treat the character design/style as preliminary for the time being

I had that pop up last week. I discontinued IE7 and went to Chrome. Not sure if there was a self-installing update to IE that screwed up the laptop, but no matter. Chrome appears to work just as well, if not faster.

That's slightly odd then, because I am using Chrome. I have the same issue with Safari and Firefox, but strangely it works fine in mobile-safari

Broaden his shoulders from his "wings" a hair and tighten up his sleeves a bit and you've got it...
