Default The Empire Strikes Back-Into The Hoth System

This began simple enough, just playing with a landscape,
and it kept making me think of Hoth.

I Looked at film, and first sequences, I said, lets do those...

Well, what I have done so far.


http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w83VV64w3JY


Am atm trying to do the Probe droid smack and using some dynamics,
which I desperately need to get more acquainted with.


It actually began really nice and effortless, but soon, $&*(#&*@^()%$)
happens.......

Story when I blow up Youtube HQ with A fleet of Battlestars and Baseships. Even the Cylons can't take it anymore.


Model by Ansel Hsaio


NOTE:
I have tried in vain to get an upload to look as I see it on comp or in preview, or final render. Youtube and Sony and Adobe-MPEG do not mix IMHO!

I can only use H264 in AFX and trying to do video and audio in AFX is a waste of effort.

SO- To see 70% of the Stars in opening shot requires MIN 720p HD
in Large Screen or better.
even then it is not even what I get on comp render.


I had added actual footage to compare with,, but Youtube Immediately blocked it worldwide and and even lowered my acct status because of it. well, when done I will dispute, for purposes of comparison.

I recognize that name, Ansel Hsiao! That guy does some AWESOME star destroyers.
Nice usage of the model, the lighting, and the effects.

Why Thanks, yeah it turned out really good.

And this may be due to the fact I actually used the film for reference.
And also did side by side, or rather top and bottom -lol -
comparison while editing... almost had to to get some of the track and SFX right.

Kinda hard to duplicate things, but it did come out good.

Thanks to Martok, who at the the time I did this I had just watched a couple of his vids on his current proj. Galactica Wars, which I really like.

Especially the voice overs and story.

Regards,
