I got my hands on IRML's Enterprise E mesh and I am trying to light it but haven't had much luck. I'm using Lightwave, any help would be appreciated. BTW, I can't give this mesh out to anyone, sorry. Thanks Dave for letting me use it.

    The current lighting makes it look like a toy package, which I like! You should extend the background and do a text mock-up on the side!

    A text mockup? You mean like if this was going to be a model box?

    Yeah yeah, "Real lights and sounds!" "May contain Borg" etc.

    That's a good idea.i might try that sometime. I want this render to look like it is a still from a movie. I deleted the scene and started over.

    From the shots he uploaded on his own thread, I thought the lighting rig looked perfect...

    However, I'd try to give it some lighting to blend it with the background... first, I'd make the planet side of the Enterprise darker, and then give it a faint blue cast...

    Have you rendered out an Ambient Occlusion pass that you can composite into the shot?

    Thanks, I started over, I'm using an Earth mesh instead of a bg image. Also, the Lightwave version didn't come with any exit or lighting rig, only the ship lighting.

    Here's a render I threw together, not the Enterprise E, but nevertheless...
