Loved the videos. The use of the Tron:Legacy soundtrack is great. I always thought it would work well for Trek.

Beautifully done. But the slanted warp-nacelle pylons never worked for me on the original ship, they just look out of place.
We Agree 100% : ) ... that's why we altered the Pylons just enough, in the hopes they would look like the design followed the NX01 pylons design but still a design predecessor to the TMPE pylons.

Re: The Prime Alternative

Oh, out of curiousity, how long did it take you to render those scenes? what kind of hardware setup did you use?

It depends... most of it was rendered on my PC that I built around mid-2010, when the model was finished up. It's an AMD Phenom II hex-core 1090T, which does pretty well. I've also got 8GB of RAM in there, with a couple of GeForce 9800GTs.

I was doing all of this with Blender 2.45, too, which renders a little slower than the newer versions. The still pictures only take about 5-10 minutes to render out, but then I do all of the compositing and effects in Photoshop for about 3-5 hours.

The videos take longer, of course... for a 30 second clip it was taking around 3-4 hours at 720p. I would then take all of that into After Effects, and add flares and things, taking another 2-3 hours.

Re: The Prime Alternative

Cool stuff. Does Blender use the graphics cores to do the rendering, or still using the cpu?

Thanks.

It is by far the model with the most time in it, for sure. I did V6 of my Enterprise in about 2 weeks... this one took more like 4 months.

It uses the CPU to actually render a scene, and you can select how many processor cores you want it to use.

The GPUs are just to help with the user interface speed, especially on a really dense model. The more RAM on the Graphics Card the better.

Once again, proof that anyone who truly believes that the original design couldn't be brought up to big-screen, high-definition 'snuff' is just plain wrong . Nice work!
Thanks!!!!
