View Full Version : seeking advice on projecting speed

09 September 2004, 04:28 PM (A simply flight test)

Hi all...

This is an old project that I decided to go back to... A very rudamentary flight clip, as you can see...

My question is how could I better convey the feeling of speed, without a camera angle that allows for using the background as a visual point of reference. I've tried using the jet exhaust, but obviously it's not uite working...

And I'm sticking with this angle because I feel it's fairly dramatic to the eye.

Any suggestions/critiques?

I'm editing another angle into this one in post with a wing cam shot, using atmospheric debris as a visual cue, but I can only mix in 1-2sec of that total in two parts before it becomes tiring.

And yes, the jet does pixelate, this render was done a while back as one of my first tests with FPrime for Lightwave, and it can behave this way depending on how much time you allow it to spend on a frame.

thanks in advance all!
