Outstanding work Petrovelly! Here’s some things I’ve noticed:

-There are some rendering glitches in the shadow regions of the Star Destroyer.

-There appears to be chromatic aberation in the edges of the Destroyer.

(Maybe it was for artistic intent but IMHO I’m not a fan of it because it gives the pretty solid render of the Destroyer a very “it was made in 3d and not an actual physical ship/model” look to it.)

-The engline glow needs a bit of lens flare, but as an suggestion and to add an layer of realism, base the flare from the camera lens used.

Yeah, I’m aware of these problems. Now that I have this animation rendered, I clearly see what’s to correct. Chromatic aberation is an artistic choice, but it will less noticable in the final render. Also, like I said before - engines are going to be completely reworked, because they look like shit right now. I want it to be as good as Rogue One’s CGI.

There it is! Definitely not final, but it gives an overall impression on how it’s going to look like 😄 There are some problems with noise, lights and engines, which I’m going to solve soon. I’ve rendered it using Sheepit render-farm, which took 12 hours, so you get the idea how massive this animation is…

Yeah dude, this looks great. Have you looked into a render farm to assist in rendering your projects? Sheepit is free and has a pretty good community.

I didn’t but it seems to be a game-changer, thanks! Right now, one frame of this animation is rendering about 12 minutes (in ray-trace sampling 1300, which isn’t good enough), and I have about 470 of them to render, just for the one shot…

I’m working on Star Destroyer (by Ansel Hsiano, and the bridge from Angel) right now. It’s far from perfect, but I think it already looks ok in terms of realism. I had to modify it a little bit (by adding this hangar part in the middle for example) to make it look more like Devastator. Note that this is not the final version in any way, I just wanted to share it with you 😃

Merry Christmas! As you guys know, I’ve been working on the original Tatooine matte painting for a while. Here you can watch the results of my work! Also - I decided to keep the original timing, so Tantive IV will no longer fly with a camera movement 😃

(edit) It may not look that good because of the YouTube compression.

Hello guys! It’s been a while…

Sorry for the lack of updates. I’m gonna be completely honest with you - it’s impossible for me to finish this project. Which is actually pretty obvious for many, many reasons.

It all started out of boredom. For about a year I had fun doing some color grading or making my first steps into a 3D software. But now I feel like my passion for that kind of stuff is weaker than ever. I’m doing some 35mm photography and graphic design these days, which is great and really makes me happy.

All in all, I will continue to upload some clips from time to time. It won’t be ever finished, but “remastered” scenes should also be nice 😃

Peace!
