    Thanks, all.

    The shots are rather literally quick-and-dirty...the hull "weathering" needs to be dialed back by about half.

    Yeah, put me on the side in favor of your effect. I was never a fan of the original Phase II "painted" caps, as we saw in the WIP models. But, I very much like the way your effect provides a visual bridge to the TOS version, while updating the nacelles. I really like pretty much everything you've done with this model. Nicely done! :techman:

    Perhaps the caps only become translucent when the engins are running at higher power, the faster you go the more you see.

    Or that's energy that bleeds through the otherwise opaque caps ... like the burners on an electric range.

    Cool vid. Is the planet one you created, or did you use a terraformed Mars or Venus?

    Very, very nice. Reminds me of one of my favorite SFX shots. Approaching Khitomer in TUC. Speeds towards the camera and then the camera pivots to follow as it heads towards orbit.

    That is some excellent work, and excellent progress there! I can't wait to see a full-on theme song for the Phase II version of the Enterprise.

    Thanks, everyone.

    BolianAdmiral, that's a combination of planetary maps - mainly Mars and Io with transparency and color twiddling, some cut-and-paste oceans and an Earth cloud map.

    Okay, just doodling around with this...I'm a novice at editing, know nothing about timing and the planet switches out between two shots - I'm going to replace the Earth-y one with a Mars-y one throughout.. Here 'tis, though, for the moment:

    I remember this opening sequence. It was one of my favorite shows of the 70's! That and Buck Rogers....

    Lessee....music from "Inside Star Trek", ship and camera moves reminiscent of TNG...that pan could stand to be smoothed out some, but otherwise, not too shabby.
