Thank you so much. Just the fun you all perhaps had was worth the work
I already found some embarrassing mistakes I will correct ASAP: My english spelling is obviously catastrophic... So I will change "lenseflares" into "lens flares" and "myth bustet" into "myth busted"
Feel free to comment more of these mistakes in the titles and subtitles - the day before yesterday I thought about showing the film one of you natively speaking English forum members for a spell check - but I was too tired, impatient and nervous
Anyway I must wait for uploading the next version until I have enough memory budget at Vimeo again. It is limited to 500 mb upload per week and I needed almost 2 days just to get a balance between quality and memory requirements of the film.
Now some answers to your questions:
@ Kadri: I think including the other rendered scenes it must be about 15-20 min. The last final explanatory resolution will be about additional 10-15 minutes. The whole project includes now more than 779 GB in 3,787 folders with 270,058 files (TGDs, TGCs, objects, textures, testframes, frames and soundfiles... )
@ luvsmuzik: In fact I was nervous if the TG3 and TG4 renders look good together - especially the space scenes. The Abrams Enterprise is TG4 with many starbursts so I added some postwork starbursts to the TMP Enterprise (TG3) with proDAD Vitascene. The flight into the docks is completely rerendered in TG4. The scene of the Viper in the desert fortunately didn't need any modification or rerendering.
@ otakar: Thanks - the Klingon baby talk was a flash of inspiration when I sat for a coffee at my friends house and filmed him and his "talking" baby. I anyway had the problem that I never would get enough voice talents for the film.
Now I have to do a decision: Will I give a baby voice to all characters in the film or is this idea now consumed and trite? I will never get all the original characters to speak in a little fan project!
Please you all feel free to comment this idea - or send me recordings of baby babble if you support a fully baby babbled film
@ Ulco: The rotating fans in the Abrams Enterprise are both! The fans themselves are 4 manually rotated objects I separated from the whole model. The plasma like glowing behind the fans is a overlay file I bought from rampantdesigntools.com and projected onto the corresponding background object behind the fans.
For the moment I am quite empty...
And untill now this was the easy part of the film!
Perhaps I will do another teaser with some finished parts during 2017. Unfortunately I cannot talk bout the final end scenes because the fun and the surprise would be Irretrievably destroyed.
That will be a hard time for me because I cannot share much in the forum and learn from your comments...
Anyway thanks for your support and motivation again
CU in 2017
... and now I have to turn the heating up --- It's very very cold in this room since not all PCs are rendering
