Thanks for the compliment!
The solid color for the dome won't cut it since the texture is animated to show shadow and light spill. Since I'm not using lights, I'm saving a tremendous amount of render time!
Now, the blades, that's a different story and I'm open to suggestions.
Is motion blur really that necessary? I mean, unless you're viewing them from right in front of them, you won't even see the motion blur.
Anyone notice whether the blade rotation is same for all nacelles? Are they all clockwise as seen from the front? Or is the starboard clockwise and port counter-clockwise?
It's probably not going to make much of difference except to a hardcore nitpicker. But it might be useful if I try to mechanically animate the blades.
Yeah, the ones on ***everyone brace yourself as I speak the unspeakable*** Enterprise went clockwise on starboard and conter-clockwise on port. They did the same for the TOS Defiant when it was on there. I think the TOS Enterprise was supposed to work that way, but I'm not totally certain. I mean, I'm a dork, but my dorkiness has its limits. :devil:
Eh, let's face it, I'm too lazy to even have thrown anything in the first place.
i don't want to sound unpatient, but when do you continue?
If people don't ride him he gets... well, I hate to use the word, but... lazy.
Yeah, that's true. Besides, I'd like to see you all that are trying to pressure him whip out a tutorial quickly. First, you have to be sure of how to do the process yourself. Then you have to go through the trials and the pitfalls of doing the process and at the same time write a tutorial. Then you have to upload it to the internet and try to put everything in an order that will make sense to others. Plus, I don't know about the rest of you, but I have about a thousand distractions an hour when I'm relaxing and doing 3D work (though not necessarily doing both of those at the same time as 3D work isn't always relaxing. :devil:)
^That's what I thought... Real life sometimes gets in the way of modeling and rendering. Give him a break, guys. I'm just as eager to see the next installment as anyone.

Always like to see how the Pros do it.
Great job on this tutorial Eric.
