    The Star Wars Project

    I'm glad to join this community today.

    Working with 3D since the late eighties, I'm actually working on a fanfilm project with the working title "The Star Wars Project (TSWP)".
    It will be a mixed thing of CGI animations, Greenscreen and real filming.
    Neither we're looking for top accuracy nor will going to wallow in "set seeing" or endless blabla scenes.
    There will be a nice little story in focus, which will unite several characters from different SW eras on a common "Canonball Run".

    As many of us, I'm a big fan and follower of the work of Fractalsponge and some of his free models will take part in the movie. On this occasion: Thank you great master! It's just amazing what you're doing!

    Here's a actual WIP, a Sentinel Class Shuttle which 'unfortunately' will blow up during the story

    Thank you for nice welcome! I really like places like this, where people have a relaxed attitude.

    In the meantime I've made some updates on the Sentinel.
    Main and back body as well as the cockpit were provided with tile- and greeblies- displacement maps.
    Next job will be the same procedure on the side- and top-wings, that have currently only polygon-greeblies.
    I tend to overdose things, so I'll later have to go the substractive way and probably wipe things out.


    I already have some animations, but they were made only for functional tests and to poor quality to show here
    The latest test unfortunately failed. It was a short animation of these tiny appearing Tie-Pilots (last picture) I've made in Interposer.
    Although I managed to run them in different rhythms with SurfaceSpread. But then some suddenly stopped and the others ran into them.
    Surfacesprad is a great plugin but I still have to learn...

    Yeah, we're pretty relaxed around here.

    I'm really liking the work on the shuttle. I especially like the shot of it with the Lambda-class in the bay.

    That's a pretty nice shuttle you've got there. It brings back memories from playing Rouge Squadron some 10 years ago, you don't see Sentinels very often.
    That scene is also shaping up great, too bad your pilots keep rebelling.

    Thank you all!!

    @Rekkert: I should wear my Vader costume when arranging those rebelling pilots, maybe this would bring discipline into the bunch

    Nice work BigT, did a Sentinel myself a few years back for the mod I work on, First Strike, looks like you've based your vessel off of the same reference I used. Mine is obviously not as detailed as yours being for a game and all, but was a real fun project. It is nice to have a canon vehicle which has a couple of interpretations which mean you have a bit of leeway to do your own take on it. I'm planning on taking my in game mesh and upping the detail level so it can be used in the higher detailed Imperial Hangar that I built for another project.

    Welcome to the forums, and I look forward to seeing more of your work on this project.
