Another animation...
« on: May 20, 2006, 10:54:59 pm »

I planned at least 3 more scenes for that movie, but that will have to do. it's the shortest movie so far, half a minute, but it's worth a look. Smiley

A bit too brief to get really into it, but nice nonetheless. The Skiffs are moving quite nicely this time around, the weapons effects are great and the Quasispace portals, Earth and Moon are really nice. I still feel the victims of the attacks are a bit too static; for example, the Nemesis that gets blown up appears to be just sitting there.

Pretty cool! The only thing that seems to be missing is space debris (from wrecked/exploding ships.)

haha
lol

did you notice how the sun is *behind* Earth from our view, and yet Earth (and the moon) are perfectly lit? Wink

also, from a reaslim point of view, the planets seem too small in comprasion to the ships..

but I like the lasers!  Cheesy

I can hear sound, but can't see a picture.  Is there a codec I'm missing or something?

Probably. The video is DivX 5.0, and Windows doesn't normally have a decoder for that. Try using FFDShow.

It looks really good. Short, but good. One suggestion: The ships taking hits look
like they're holding still. Maybe if you go back and polsih this one up,
you could move the victims around. The Earth and Moon models
are fantastic.
