Animation Battlestar 2015 Viper Launch (Slow Ride version)

Randal R.


Well. with the loss of many of the scenes and files and footage from
my Reboot of the The Arrival short and subsequent foray into the Mat's
and poly-selection tags..and reworking a lot of it again.
I redid just about everything, and still am..also working on the Hyades
again with new found Material resource...C4d itself..:D

This took a helluva time to render...but,,I had to do it.:D

I think its cool, though I do do not travel thru a Lighted Tunnel before flying into space couldn't see a thing if you had.A pretty ship would not look like a race car....etc..etc..

but.I am learning..Pomp and Hype are Best Sellers...:D

Thank you for visiting my post.

"...just sit back and enjoy the ride,"
I was going to link you to Scifi-Meshes but I see you are already there!
Finished Work
Good Job!

Thank you....Scifi of the first sites I registered with when I began doing this stuff
appx. 6 yrs ago...and am still there..:D

Sad though..there is no Downloads on Scifi like there used to be...I had a Scorpia Shipyards Model
I DL'd from musta got lost...and it was no longer on SciFI.Meshes..then all of it was gone.
I even had my Launchtube on there..which is an upgrade of a Sketchup model..and had seen someone else make it look better
in a video.

This stuff is just really time consuming for one person and satisfying the critics is near impossible.
But I like it,, I like making them, I like trying things, I like figuring it out.
Far as I know..Foundation3d and Scifi 3d are the only place left that has a lot of SciFi models
and popular models.

I do not frequent F3d much, as I have felt unwelcome a few times..
and bashed by one of their Expert Patrons..:D

Be nice to have a repository of a lot of these meshes,,old and new.that have been offered or shared
for others to play and tinker with.

I have not got into Modeling really..but when I first opened C4d..with not a clue what was what..
began to model a Viper..was not bad for a 1st try.

Just some Background info..... Sorry to make a long reply...but 8 hours of rendering and only 100 frames done..
got to fill in the time somehow. :D
Best and Regards,

Randal R.

Kerbal Space Program
This one simulates a fictional universe, but it's widely hailed as a great educational game about astrophysics.

Construct viable spacecraft that can overcome the effects of gravity and fuel consumption to get your little Kerbals into orbit. Sound easy? It's not.

The position, size and quantity of components you add to your ship will determine whether it reaches the stratosphere or explodes on the scaffold. Timed rocket booster sequences and jettisoning depleted fuel cells are critical to success. Oh, and you'll need to install a parachute to the capsule if you want your Kerbals to survive re-entry.

Well, I hope I listed at least one thing you find interesting
Excellent Reply there Tom..thank you.

I feel like you just showed me Santa's warehouse and gave me a key.
some of them I have been too I noticed...I still got a few models from Solcommand..:D

Kudos man.
