FX Wars! Moonshot! Roux (Hard Science)

Well, here goes nothing. I am doing mine based on the failed apollo mission 13. Except I plan to do it without the failure that occured. The mission will show what would have happened according to plan.

Here is the start of my modelling for the interior of the CM (Command Module).

wow... if you put this much detail into a small part of the ship... this is gonna rock..
good luck with it

And A quick render. No textures yet.

I am thinking fairly detailed on the interior, even though it will only be a small part of the animation...

The exteriors will be fairly high in detail too but not down to the rivets like this

Comments appreciated as always.

Looking good Roux. The only advice i have is to spread your efforts based on the amount on time than the object will be on cam. You don't want to spend too much time modelling an object that will apear for just a second.
My grain of salt

I can't wait to see the finished product. With the level of detail you are playing with it should be something really spectacular.

shivmoo: Thanks, let's hope work doesn't get in the way this time

MandelbrotJr: Thanks. Those were my initial thoughts but what I'm thinking of will involve this section up close and personal so a straight texture map won't cut it
I also hope to use this one for something more when I'm done.

Roshin: Shut up and get back to modelling

Anyways, enough chat.....back to it. More posts soon.

That's looking very good. However, you need to have the steam have less noise. It looks too busy. Needs to be slightly more blobby.

But other than that, fantastic job.

Thanks PixelMagic. I agree with you totally. I am not having a great deal of success though.

I think my limited skills with hv's and the inherent shortcomings of Lightwave hyper-voxels (volumetrics) are going to limit how far I can go with this.
Any lightwave HV gurus out there willing to lend a hand?

Oh forgot to mention, the launchpad and tower were based on a mesh from IvortheEngine from LWG. They actually represent the modern shuttle pad> I am using them as partial reference and gradually replacing them with my own mesh. The Tower is all mine and the pad is about 60%complete. I will post wires for comparison when done.

That forth smoke picture looks really good. However, you now need to put just a LITTLE bit more noise back into the smoke. Then you will have it perfectly.

Thanks. I think 75% of the forth image and 25% of the previous settings. Although, I have lost the ambient light thats seen through the cloud when the rocket is on the pad. All the ref shots show a clear yellow/orange glow. More tweaking I guess

Argghhhhh! I hate hypervoxels. That small change has taken hours of tweeking but no improvement in the smoke noise yet I don't think that hypervoxels and the words "LITTLE change" go together at all.


Anyway before I went insane, I started on my models for the very first shot of the sequence. There are some floors in the models and some details that need to be corrected but nothing that will be too noticable. Thoughts?
