Actually I'm reworking this fantastic model of the Imperial Star Destroyer made by a guy called Ansel Hsiao who named himself Fractalsponge:

The UVW-mapping isn't really working, so I'm trying to improve it and I added some different textures.

Wow, what a beautiful model.

The occlusion weight is strong with this one.
Just because milk is white doesn't mean that clouds are made of milk.

I know, it's a bit too much.

As far as I know, he wears always the same clothes...

A test rendering of the Imperial Star Destroyer.

Wow, cool!

Localized clouds and light sources?  ;)

Dune

Terrific! Will the ship be animated as well?

At least, if SW7 is disappointing, we'll have Hannes animations  ;)

Exactly!!

In this case I do it the same way ILM did in the seventies. The Imperial Star Destroyer stays stationary, but the camera is animated so that it looks like the ship is moving. Thus I have some kind of object motion blur although there is none in TG (yet!!!!!!). And the good thing is, I don't have to animate the lightsources (there are sixteen lightsources in the ship's hangar as well) and the localised clouds on the thrusters. It would be possible to do that, but like that it's much easier.
There will be the Lambda fighter starting off the big ship, bringing Darth Vader and the troopers to the station I already showed. I hope I can manage to animate the wings of the fighter, which are only in the "up"-position, when it has landed. Maybe I'll try the same way I did for the walking animation: using a population of the fighter (and two more for the separate side wings) with only one instance each, animating the wing movement and for the overall flying animation I'll animate the populations. I hope it will work, but I'm quite confident.

Thanks David!! I guess my animation will be slightly shorter than SW 7. Slightly... ;)
