    There was a shot similar to this in the opening credits of The Cage, but it was shot with the three foot model. This is to see what it might have looked like with the 11 foot model. All done in Blender 3D, of course.

    Thanks for looking in!

    Sweet.

    My first impression is that you've just about nailed a lot of the artifacts of 1964 television special effects. It would be interesting (if you're interested) if you were able to peel back a few of the film generations to look more like the more pristine footage that we saw on, say, the Roddenberry Vault before it went through multiple film processes.

    Just my humble suggestion.

    Dear Eric, This is just lovely. Sorry if this has been asked before (I know nothing about 3D graphics), but which program are you using to create this masterpiece? Thanks for you labors!

    Hello HuckleCat! (Cute name, btw!) Blender 3D, version 2.79b. I hope this helps, and thank you for the very kind words!

    Actually, I agree! I am working on a project that I am not at liberty to discuss ... yet. I will have good things to share - when they let me!

    Not feeling so great, but the last night of call. So, I thought I'd make this image with my latest Enterprise, imagining if the pilot The Cage was shot in HD ... back in the day.

    For me the Matt Jefferies’ Enterprise will always be the one and all others impostors.

    Looking at these pics shows me what TOS-R could have looked like. :(

    That is actually a prime motivator for me, these days. I originally wanted to create an episode or two where I fixed some effects problems from 1960's technology. Then TOS-R came out and I thought someone had read my mind ... except that they did things I wouldn't have done. So, I will still do the one or two episodes I want to see corrected, but STILL look like a 1960's episode.

    And thank you!
