Re: The official Diaspora eyecandy thread
Who wants to guess how much fun it's to place and animate potentially hundreds of Raiders?

Re: The official Diaspora eyecandy thread
fancy!

So why are all of the decent space-related videos rendered in LW? I've seen a whole bunch of LW space battle videos on youtube but most of the max ones look like they are made by 10 year olds :( Does lightwave have some kind of secret magic gimmick?

Re: The official Diaspora eyecandy thread
Nonesense, great space-related videos can and have been made with other apps.

Thing is though that people interested in making space scenes have a tendency to pick up their 3d software based on what was used for making the effects in their favorite scifi show, be it B5, Trek, BSG or Firefly. And when a large portion of the userbase likes to make space scenes, chances are some really good ones appear every now and then.

A preview for the Diaspora intro vid?!? :nervous:

[answers rethorical question]
So far i've moved only 2 objects on a 3rd, but that was pretty...lets just say time consuming.
To do that with hundreds of Raiders...i think it's a Battlestar-sized PITA, but the result will make it worthwhile. :)

Hey there LTCannonfodder,

On the chunk you are working on.. I'd say.. man if you can not play with instances plus some script to slightly vary that/those hundred/s of animations for all those raiders then.. wow.. anyways.. you'll deserve a good bottle of OWAN once you got it all done!. =)

On the damn big asteroid ( or moon.. in case it orbits a planet out there...) I'll admit that looks very very good. Also the background which definitely shows Orion.

In the words of the Master Yoda..: "Impressive this is going to look"

Screenshots! Get 'em while they're hot! :D

EDIT: Moved hosting to imageshack since it was being slow.

First, a nice shot of a Raider wing attacking a transport (unfortunately, with the HUD on):


Next, some screenies from an epic furball with nearly 100 ships:




The last one is my favorite. :)

Nice pics. But you might want to host them somewhere with a bit more bandwidth....

There appears to be some sort of gorgeous explosion in front of the colonial movers.
Or something.
