Since I've started putting up some animation of the 3D vehicles I've already modeled,I think I'll put up a few scenes for the Starships I've made.To start,the SDF4 concept ship with a couple of fighters zooming past.
Your SDF is much more awsome that the stuff we see in the current shows. They all forgot that the SDF only had to transform because it couldn't fire it's cannon otherwise. Nowadays transformation is standard, "because". I really like Zentreadi/Human mix look of this.
Thanks.Yeah,this is designed as a fixed shape.I'll probably do another animation of it firing the main gun.. I might have the effect of the 3 booms widening out somewhat to accommodate the blast but that'll be it.
I plan on continuing this sequence in the next upload.I'm going to see if I can string 3 scenes together with the fighters maneuvering around the Ship's hull. As for new renders.. I'll probably just update the original SDF4 pic I made with all views to a higher-rez version.But for now,I'm creating some animations.
If I may make a small suggestion about your camera move, that last movement back up and to the right following the fighters is a little distracting. you could either keep the starship more in frame throughout so you dont need to swing back as hard or you could not swing back as far at the end maybe
I'm trying to keep the fighters within the central part of the frame so I had to adjust the camera to compensate.It does swing back over a bit much though.I could try softening that movement later and see if it makes a for a better difference.Thanks for the tip all the same.
Yeah,I've been working in animation for about 10 years now,and have used 3D Studio off and on for just as long.I'll be adding a couple more follow up scenes for this.. with the fighters weaving around the massive ships' hull,and another one showing off the fortress's main gun.Thanks
