Here's my first video for this category of projects. :)

I want to eventually do the entire sequence at the end of ST:IV including the reveal shot... but in time.

    Nice animation, Chris. Is there more to come?

    I certainly hope so. :P Life is a bit chaotic right now.

    Very nice! However, the hull plating appears very dark near the deflector and the vertical section running down the neck. Is this intentional?

    Oh, that is BEAUTIFUL!

    Yes, that's how the texture itself appears, although, post effects might make it appear darker.

    Yeah, that green is _way_ too dark compared to the rest of the hull - it should only be a shade or two darker than the rest of the plating. Not to mention that if it's the A, it should be blue-gray anyway rather than that green (which I never liked, TBH). ;)

    From my understanding, the blue appearance as seen in ST:VI was due to the lighting... the model itself always had the greenish tone, I'll definitely work on the texturing to make it less dense in appearance by the time I finish the project. :)

    Although, I think I'm gonna have to use the NCC-2000, can't find a decent NX-2000, so we'll just assume that by the end of ST:IV, the Excelsior was upgraded to the NCC-2000. :D

    For whatever reason, YouTube is making this video brighter or less contrasted than it really is... and I wanted to get this uploaded for Christmas Day, but stupid ID matching of the movie footage kept ID'ing the movie footage no matter how much I altered it until I pretty much made it practically invisible.

    (Now has the corrected version)

    The quality is really bad. Otherwise the animation is very good. Thanks!

    Yea, I'm gonna see what's the problem with the video, because here's a frame grab from the source video and it's perfectly fine...

    Moving Novel cover, that look.

    Marc Bell's model is absolutely stunning, more animations to come, as I do random shots in conjunction with my Trouble with Tribbles video.



    I did this in 2010 and 2014, the first time using Paul Trenkler's Enterprise E, then Alexander "Nightfever" Klemm's Enterprise E... now I present the third version using Marc Bell's Enterprise E.

    Just a few random shots... I wish I knew how they originally created the effects for the Briar Patch lol

    This looks very good . How did you do the Briar Patch effect?

    Clever masking and stuff of frame grabs of the movie :3

    After a lot of tweaking and stuff, I've arrived at a result I'm satisfied with. Of course, much can still be improved upon, but we'd be here forever. lol Hope you all enjoy this video. :D May The Final Frontier get a true remaster someday. ^_^

    Thanks for showing an inhabited Moon. Feels like everyone misses that when making stories about Earth's far future.

    One scene might to have the BoP hit the warp nacelles with disruptors…a photon torpedo hitting the impulse deck right as Enterprise enters space dock..which vaporizes the BoP. Enterprise hits the inside…

    Wow! Very nicely done.

    And something about that first shot of the Enterprise-A with 'NCC-1701-A" properly centred on the saucer just scratched a very old itch...
