The Santa Claus Christmas Sleigh Tuning Desaster
« on: December 16, 2018, 04:14:16 PM »
Breaking News: Astronomers spotted Santa Claus's two escaped test mooses in a small observatory on an island somewhere off Ålesund. They were part of an experiment to tune the Christmas sleigh for higher horsepower by using moose instead of reindeer. Scientists suspect that the two escaped elks meanwhile would have reached an orbit around Alpha UMi, the current North Star.  Breaking News: Astronomers spotted Santa Claus's two escaped test mooses in a small observatory on an island somewhere off Ålesund.

I suspect Rocket J Squirrel is somehow behind this escape! ;D

Thank you!  :)

Ha ha ha ha ha and a ho ho ho, good one and the same wishes back to you Doc. Coincidentally I think I'm using that same Ancient Astronomy obj in a render I've got cooking now

something Blue.

You must have meant "higher moosepower". :P

All best to you too! Merry Christmas and productive new Year!

My personal opinion only, but maybe the meese, (mooses, whatever...) could benefit with contrails to show the effect of velocity...

Thanks for the bit of levity!  And may you and yours enjoy!  Merry Christmas and Happy New Year's wishes!

Thanks @all :)

Nice idea Rich, - maybe I have the time to implement it at weekend. Perhaps more likely a strip of little glittering stars…?!  I'll give that a try :)

I added two streetlamps by nobicasa found some time ago on Turbosquid or CGTrader…
6 populations of speres with animated eliptic simple shape shaders.


It's one of my very seldom animations in 1920x1080 to get an appropriate quality of the twinkling star tail with a hint of particle effect :)
Tomorrow or the day after the animation should be finished.

Until then, I wish everyone a nice dinner this evening. See you tomorrow or the day after tomorrow in the animation section :)
