An embiggened 1920 x 1080 widescreen version of this shot (my favorite of the bunch so far) is available for the clicking:

What software did you use to track your CGI on the Enterprise viewscreen? Or did you roto-scope it by hand?
Andersson SynthEyes was used to track the live action footage motion so that the viewscreen insert would swivel correctly, and Adobe After Effects 7.0 was used for the rotoscoping... and all 63 frames were manually rotoscoped. My right hand was balled into a cramped fist at the end of that little chore, lemme tell ya.

Re: Star Trek: The Doomsday Machine - Special Edition Screencaps

Jumping back to the micro-topic on the Constellation's damage, maybe the PK took "samples" of the ship in order to determine the ships suitability for digestion or processing, and decided it wasn't worth the effort, and simply disabled it?

As for the video itself, my only real problem is the scan lines on the viewer. Blegh.

Re: Star Trek: The Doomsday Machine - Special Edition Screencaps

I'm late, but I wanted to say I like the way the ship is brightly lit. I always end up lighting mine really bright... Lately, I think there is too much of a 'dark' look in sci-fi shows, and in the fan artwork.

I can't wait for more.

or knew correctly trying to digest something like that would be a bad bad
thing.

very excellent work professor.

Very nice!
I'll have to dig through my archives and compare it to your earlier passes. I seem to remember glowing asteroids and arcing on Constellation wreck.
Did you tone those down to be more in-line with 60's effects?
I just compared your shots to the Remastered ep & I have to say it... I'll take yours.

The arcing is still there; it's just hard to see in the shots you've seen so far. The asteroids are completely different though. The glowy 'roids used clumped hypervoxel particles, but these are actual asteroid meshes with modeled geometry. There are ten different base asteroid models that are cloned several hundred times each per scene, scaled at random values in the X/Y/Z axes, scattered in a roughly spherical volume, and keyframed with random heading/bank/pitch and X/Y/Z movement to depict the remnants of Systems L-370 and 374. Throw in some hypervoxel dust clouds in the background and voila!... instant planetary destruction.

I never was very happy with the look of the glowy asteroids. I suppose the idea was cool enough, but in practice they looked too samey-same and distracted the attention of the viewer from the stars of the show, the Enterprise and Constellation (not to mention the Special Guest Villain, the Cornucopia of Doom).

Re: Star Trek: The Doomsday Machine - Special Edition Screencaps

Act I is now online... you can follow my signature line link below to download it.

Here's a fun little "family portrait" I whipped up for this thread showing the relative sizes of the Enterprise, Constellation and the "guest star".



Depending on how you feel about spoilers and being surprised, you might want to hold off on embiggening this thumbnail until you've seen the clip.

Now that DM looks scary, dangerous, and can do some damage. I like it!

Re: Star Trek: The Doomsday Machine - Special Edition Screencaps

Great work I'm liking it more than the official remastered version...

The only thing I would add would be a bit of film grain to the effect shot...but thats just one fellows opinion...

Awesome job! Can't wait for act II!

[little school girl]SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEELLLLLLLL!!!!!![/little school girl]

Downloaded, but am at work. I can't wait to watch this later tonight!

Love your final version of the DM, Prof. Truly wicked looking!

One question: is your Constellation a "full Constitution Class" ship, or something else?

I only ask because, as I'm sure you recall, there have been many conversations on here speculating that she may have been a member of some predecessor class of ship, perhaps refit or uprated to near Connie specs, and I was curious what your decision was in this regard. Also, I notice she appears somewhat smaller than the E, though I assume that's merely because so much of the Constellation has been blown away by the DM. Just raised the question in my mind, though.

Heading off to make popcorn now.

Re: Star Trek: The Doomsday Machine - Special Edition Screencaps

I modeled the Constellation as a Constitution-class starship, but with detailing from the era of "The Cage". If you look closely you'll still see remnants of the design elements from that period: big deflector dish, spiked warp nacelles (you can actually still see one of the spikes all twisted and broken on the port nacelle), extra details/markings on the upper saucer, etc.
