...Time for a little preview because it's Christmas  :)
Merry Christmas to all of you!

Only low profile PAL - but the HD-Version is already rendering  :)


Pretty awesome takeoff, Nils! I can't wait until 2015!

Thank you very much  :)
And a special thanks to Dune and Oshyan, who gave me great, great tipps...

Unfortunately I was a little under time pressure, because this "teaser" is also a little Xmas present to my little sister, who loves the Star Wars saga and especially the robot. So there will be other teasers in better quality...

Hey - did you know how had the work is to create an own Viper- or R2D2 sound? - The robot needs many more hours of work!  ;D

Dear Dune, 2015???   ---   Äääh... the text in the teaser "...or later..." is no joke  ;)


Two weeks of studying and a special thanks to j meyer for a very helpful advice.

I have experimented with wings3d after I found that most of my objects have parts with inverted normals...
As before, wings3d is far beyond my capabilities but I could repair the "damaged parts".

This is the good news... here is just the "repaired Viper":



(both with only basic terrain, as shown when TG3 started)

Unfortunately I had to restart all render-jobs for the animation. But I think in 2-3 weeks there will by a HD remake of the teaser...
Also I found a way to repair that absolutely ugly, bad and unidentifiable R2D2 Sound... new one will be better... promised!  :)
Äähhmm - dear Dune... looks like waiting until 2016 for the complete movie  ;)


Wow! I love this model man. Great job ;)
Dell T5500 with Dual Hexa Xeon CPU 3Ghz, 32Gb ram, GTX 1080
Amiga 1200 8Mb ram, 8Gb ssd


I don't mind waiting, Nils  ;) It looks like it's gonna be worth the wait!

I love it too, but do not praise me too much. I only "repaired" it for the use in TG3. The model is (I hope I mentioned it before) is from turbosquid...

just a moment...

Member "Costinus" at turbosquid... I'm still surprised that it is free. I have seen other models from 40 up to to a few hundred dollars expensive with poorer quality.

Anyway I was happy learning things about object-import, finding out things about partsshaders... and ...and ...and

Good progress Nils. 8)
Don't worry about things being beyond your capability,
as with all things it just needs some time,you'll get there,
no doubt.


Nice progress :)
The object looks good in Terragen. Some parts do look a little too clean.


After some new ideas and since I set higher quality requirements I decided to restart most of the scenes completely new.

So I took the best pieces and did a little new teaser as consolation for the waiting people...
I think it's much better than the first one , but still far away from what I want  ;)



Yeah, terrific. This'll keep me patient for a while  ;)
