    Gorgeous. The only criticism I have (and I'm watching this on a phone so I may be getting it wrong) it's what I assume is meant to be the Cylon fleet swarming about. Imho it doesn't match the style or the scale and the only reason I mention it is because the rest of it is so impossibly good.

    You have the speed right and the camera style right. All the kind of stuff that came built in with physical cameras and models. It looks so good!

    Yeah I totally agree...after this render I learned a lot more about tyflow and while it is technically working, I dont like it either.
    Think I might make them attacking a large ship and have flashes and small explosion like in RotJ,b3frpleohl4n.jpg

    Less movement and much easier particle system

    Ok I reuploaded the video with some features to make it harder for awful people to steal my video and post it as their own on facebook. If anyone sees someone named "Kevin Tenigkeit" posting CG work on Facebook, it's most likely stolen. He's posted at least 2 of my videos as his own, and a few other people from SFM too. Anyway, guess I gotta add watermarks and shit to my videos now. A few minor updates, but I gotta get started on that Galactica! :-D :-D

    It's a shame what you have to do to keep your stuff from being stolen by uncreative a-holes.

    I've never been much of an animator, but at the height of my CGI work (and motivation) I'd sometimes be searching for images online and see where someone had used my images with the credits removed. Or worse, I've seen where people posted my images with their own credits added, like they had anything to do with creating the image. :eyeroll: So, I can definitely relate. I still sometimes see some of my old stuff when I'm doing image searches, even though I don't even have any of that stuff anymore. Either intentionally or not so much it got deleted somewhere along the way. (I don't live in the past and usually hate my old stuff anyway)

    I like to throw a very light (VERY hard to see) set of initials in the middle of my images, usually over a part of a model. If anyone blocks that, they block out a serious part of the image.

    Then regular credits on the bottom of the image.

    It's a shame we have to do stuff like that, but theft is RAMPANT.

    Light update, as sometimes happens with side projects, I had an idea of "Oh I should blow up one of my ships....not too hard..." which led to a massive deep dive into learning way more Tyflow and Phoenix...spending far too much time on this little part as I think of more little things to try...but I feel like i'm finally able to come up for air from it...hope to spot some sick explosions soon!

    I can relate. I dove into exploding a ship years ago, and it's really involved.
