As promised


Here's how the transparent ships are made.. First I load the ship file into Lightwave's Layout. (I won't bore everyone on how the ships are modeled, it takes days/weeks/months to make them)



Reposition it and make sure the lights are in the right place, set the camera



Render the frame



The frame will then render and give you two files that need to be saved, the RGB Render (all the color etc) and a black/white solid render that is used as the alpha transparency in LW, but we use it to cut the ship out in Photoshop.




Once those two files are saved, shut down Lightwave and open Photoshop, load both files in and put them in the same picture on sep. layers... then select color (White) and hide the black/white layer.



Once that's done, hit copy to copy the ship itself without the black background, and repaste it on yet another layer, and hide all layers/backgrounds except that latest paste.



Then go to Save for web (after you adjust it to the size you want) and save as a transparent PNG..



Once that's done you have your ship, without a background and on a transparency, to be added to whatever you please..



Hope you enjoyed this abridged little lesson

Of course for work related stuff it gets ten times more complicated LOL, we have to worry about things like banking, motion, how things play off the background plate, reflections, radiosity bouncing, golden sections etc... This is part of the scene I'm currently working on, each slider controls a part of the aircraft that moves during the scene..

I drink French Roast Keurig all day, usually. Typically, i will go through about 8 kcups in an average 16 hour workday. I am a coffee fanatic.

I have no clue what the symbol is. I just saw a picture of it and thought it was interesting.

Hey all just popping in to say that good things still happen here. I haven't been in here much because there hasn't been many requests.

Also just got over being pretty ill this week. The flu hit the U.S this year like a truck and normally I do not get sick but this year I did.

Sorry I have been slacking but I am feeling better and waiting for some user requests.

I haven’t had the flu in over 10 years, but it got me too last week… not good.

Here's a few pics I turned into avatars.
































The last one got a little messed up in resizing. Here's the original.

I may start a thread in general chit chat that shows the whole process from beginning to end, starting with the simple Box and ending with the textured vessel.
In case anyone was interested, as there's lots of discussions on the site about how 9/11 was all CGI or they use it in certain circumstances, it's not as easy to just chuck stuff together as people think..
