Nice work. great model and design.
Holy crap. The videos were simply stunning. Please, please, please take this to the next level and go hi-rez. Your work could easily be movie quality.
Beautifully done. But the slanted warp-nacelle pylons never worked for me on the original ship, they just look out of place.
Wow. This is amazing. Could this be a Internet movie done sometime in the future because this would be great. I can not wait to see more. Fantastic work.
The original videos were 720p, and look a lot sharper than these. I might try to upload them to youtube instead.
The idea we had with the wallpapers, were that they were storyboards for what would become a movie at some point. I wanted to actually have an animation for each one, but I just ran out of time.
Actually Youtube compresses vids horribly so you might not want to
Now see, I totally disagree with this. I think this design would work very well. I much prefer this to what we got in Abram's movie.
This shows respect, I don't know what that abomination we got on screen showed.
Vektor and deg3D have proven otherwise countless times already.
Hmm.. might wanna nag at deg for some updates...
Madman, just continue to work on this thing, it will be awesome.

Loved the videos. The use of the Tron:Legacy soundtrack is great. I always thought it would work well for Trek.
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.
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.
Ricky, all other meshes built by you were great, but this one is simply your masterpiece! Ten stars bro!
Cool stuff. Does Blender use the graphics cores to do the rendering, or still using the cpu?
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.
