Need advice on designing a video web page

Please tell me how hard is it to do a video web page with
The old star ship as a video web page for the computer and the Internet?, what would it take to do this project and how many hours to do from all of the parts from the old tv show that was back in the late 1966s?. And could you make it to look like that you are in a walking thru a real star ship?.

Re: I need everyone to try to answer this question for me please?

You need more than a web designer, you need someone who can do 3D modelling. The answer is, very hard, very time consuming, and very expensive.

Sorry dude.

For a walk thru, you'd likely need computer animation. Depending on the detail of the models, textures, lighting, shadows, the length of the sequence (through a corridor as an example), and resolution, even a sequence lasting 20 seconds could take hours or longer to render. I once did a 10 second scene with 3 walking characters, moving camera, animated alarm lights, shadows, etc., in low res of 320x280 and it took 5 hours to finish. I wasn't even trying for realism.

You may have more luck getting helpful advice with a thread title that describes what you're asking. I can edit it if you suggest a new title.

ETA: I came up with a new title. Hopefully that'll be more informative for those passing by.

Re: Need advice on designing a video web page

I think Lightwave is still the standard, but it costs more than I can afford and have never used it. Some people on the board have though, I believe.
