    Now this is a cool design... I see it incorporates features from the JJ Enterprise, while still maintaining that lovely classic overall design... this should be the Enterprise in the new movies...

    ... and it's a lovely picture.

    Nice image.

    Interesting treatment of the nacelle domes. Do the textures and lights convert that way, or do you tweak it?

    Great rendering Trekki!
  • trekkitrekki320 Posts: 861Member
    Thanks all.
    Dennis,C4D has set the lights so the bussards. Is this ok? Do you have more tips for me?
    regards

    I'm mainly curious - how does a C4D conversion work? Is it mostly automatic?

    The domes on the LW version, of course, are a great deal more opaque - they're set for translucence without much transparency, with a very high specular setting to create a kind of "frosted" effect.

    This is really good. I like the terrain too, getting it to look rugged an can be really time consuming.

    That render rocks. (no pun intended ;)) I love that background and Dennis's model rocks. The setup and lighting really pull everything together nicely.

    Nice, I like this mesh.
  • trekkitrekki320 Posts: 861Member
    Thank you all for the comments

    The terrain is a texture, sorry.

    Dennis.
    C4D can invite LW Objeke. The textures agree unfortunately not nearly all. The materials are all wrong. Transparency must allso be slightly frosted, right?
    Greeting Trekki

    Hey trekki, great achievement on the lighting. A little bit of indirect light from the asteroid would make it perfect.
    I like the background.
  • trekkitrekki320 Posts: 861Member
    Hi Dennis.
    I have changed the texture and material of the bussard.
    Is that ok?

    how did you make the rocks below and the background?
  • TrekMDTrekMD183 Posts: 609Member
    Just beautiful! Nicely done!
  • Dennis BaileyDennis Bailey171 Posts: 0Member
    Is it possible to make the material translucent with little or no transparency?
  • trekkitrekki320 Posts: 861Member
    Hi Dennis
    I must try it, good idea.
    regards

    here it is. the material is a subsurface Scuttering. Better ??
    Rendertime fast ....

    I guess what I'm curious about is if there's a way, as in LW, to not have the "fan blades" visible behind the dome. The idea is that they only matter in animation, when they pass between the light and the surface of the dome.
  • trekkitrekki320 Posts: 861Member
    Ok,
    next one
    New Bussard material.

    ^That is just about perfect...maybe a touch more glow, but just a touch!

    You should do some orthos (fore, aft, side, top, bottom)
  • trekkitrekki320 Posts: 861Member
    Here are the orthos ...
    have fun

    Yes, that bussard material is a great improvement.

    On those orthos, are the port (red) navigation lights not working?
  • trekkitrekki320 Posts: 861Member
    Hi Dennis.
    Yes he is working. In a animation sequenz as blink light.

    I took a look at moodflow's site and he has some great images. Went through the 9 pages that were available and I didn't see the image in trekki's picture. Could have missed it though.

    I must have missed it completely! Problem with getting old...

    Like I said though, moodflow does some amazing stuff and I saw 1 or 2 images I wouldn't mind using as a background!

    Thanks for that link Latos.
