Get a program like 3d Max, then render it.  I.e. set animation movements, setup the lensflares, set up a soundtrack, etc.  For something with internal 'sets' and people moving about, it will take several months to make an map your high poly models to a profesisonal standard  - something you'll need to do to make it 'work'.  Even if you just use the game models and do exterior scens, you'll need to take into account bumpmaps and illumination maps, et al.

So I take it its not gonna happen. I don't have any high quaility rendering stuff. If I wasn't smart, I'd ask [V] to do it, they usually do a good job, but right now they are more worried about some low poly two dimensional 8-bit color Britney Spears game, and nobody even likes Britney Spears any more. I'm not directing this comment to Daveb or anyone on the fs2 team, we like you!!!! You cool!!!!! You not 8-bit:)

Then again, maybe its Interplay or THQ doing the Britney Spears crap.

Well, I think you should get the best vedio you can I wouldn't worry about rendering. It will take hours and hours but one of you MUST have several computers with the network rendering server thing 3dsmax has. Thats hould complete it in mush less time. Its a 'is it worth it' thing. If Yes, just make sure its good. If no, WHAT THE VASUDAN'S RIGHT ARM DO YOU THINK YOUR PLAYING AT! :D:p

Erm, do the actual model setup in something like ts3 or higher, and then render the animation in 3D Exploration. I've never managed to finish something like that on my machine but thats 'cos I have 50MB space left on my disk..... :sigh:

Well, you just so happen to have an editor amongst you.  All right, a want to be editor, but I still can do it.  What I suggest is that we do a few things.  Anything exterior the ship can be done in game.  Why waste time redoing the 3d stuff when something that looks good already exists, and does renedering real time?  I know a rendered movie would look far better, but we don't have the resources.  That leaves the interior work and the video screen.  THe video can be done in ani format then converted to avi.  It would produce the best results for that.  The problem lies with the interior.  We could go live action, or rendered.  So, where my new thought.  Split it into small parts.  We could do the interior in bits, there by reducing the render time.  I collect all the bits, then peice them together in Premier, add music, dialogue, etc.  So all we need is someone who can make the rendered interiors.  any Takers and/or thoughts?

When did I ask for money?  I'll alays accept when its given, but I never said anything about paying me.  It just so happens editing is going to be my future profession, after school is finished, so I happen to know a few things about editing and have access to a few nice machines.  As for a job, what Job, I can't do anything at the moment any way.  I don't have the files.  As for the chat, I'll see if we can't use mine once it comes back up.
