Extrude, scale. rotate if necessary...the new Blender 2.82  Made from a tutorial about same.

They are out and about to see what they can see....

They are multiplying.... :)

Cool ships! You made them in Blender? That's rad. I need to sit down with it one of these days.

Thanks WAS......like you, I have some sort of ADD, ADHD, claustrophobia, dyslexia.....or just one stubborn brain. This is all self diagnosed for me as I am smart enough to hide whatever it is for most of my life; but I know it is there lurking....haha. I finally just said, "ok some things are gonna just take longer." But I am glad to know, it ain't just me when it comes to Blender and TG. :)

Now....how do I put night vision goggles on TG? In the movies....night scenes are all bright and pretty, ships sparkle in the sky, clear as a bell. I tried spot lights....ugh. maybe a weak sun with no shadows? Any hints?

The last one remembers me to the early X-files ;)
I'd personally try to play around with Bloom- and Starburst filter and leave the rest as it is.
Maybe you need higher luminosity for that.
And it's a petty that there's no particle animation effect in TG so far. That would be sooooo coool :)

Yes, you could add a high, weak sun with no shadow, or use ambient occlusion instead of default GI, or increase exposure in camera (try 5 and then decrease again if too much).

Rocket science.... ;D  My hangar rather looks like a musical amp or something...
WIPs .....

Blender has so many macro things and tabbed away things I always forget.

I wonder if you made things "lightly" luminous, and crank surface lighting strength in enviro light you could get close, than just make that gray/green in GIMP/PS.

A very light haze layer with Atmosphere Bloom would probably help too.

Thanks WAS....

Trying some changes in IOR and roughness also

Blender render .... a spot and two area lights

Teragen render.. daylight IOR 6 with roughness 0.3 on the Xwing metals

Actually, it rather does! Input jacks in the front and equalizer controls on left side.  Wouldn't be surprised if one of the ship pilots screamed "ROCK AND ROLL!!!!"  ;D

A wing arm hallway of space base......Made with Blender 2.83

Open to comments on how to soften reflection on metallic in TG render  I have perfect reflection but would rather have a brushed shiny look?  Is this roughness value or IOR?

Blender render uses area lights and emission value on light shader of object, TG render uses light source and luminence value on light shader part of object.

hallway dark is Blender render

hallway with Astra is TG4 render

Tutorial by Olav3D Blender 2.8  audio sequencer


My next goal is to apply this to the hangar sliders....lol....we shall see ;D

QuoteIs this roughness value or IOR?
Both. You need a high IOR (10) for metallic surfaces plus high roughness for the brushed look. A reflectivity shader may give you more control (if you aren't using one already). Is this path traced?


You're doing some really cool modeling. :)
