Weekend Racer by hoevelkamp Weekend Racer by hoevelkamp
Hi @ all.

Here's my next one.

Done in 3ds Max and Photoshop. Wasn't so sure about the title. Weekend Warriors? Sunday Driver? Weekend Racer won. :)

The Ships are Stock from DAZ3d. Called Stinger. I only changed a few small things and added the jet trails.

Planet Render was a bit a pain in the ass. 5 lights + ambient to get all the reflections and shadows where I wanted them. Took something like 6h in the original resolution (4096*1862). I just hope the downsizing by dA doesn't cost too much detail. ;)

Greets and enjoy!

I'd like to do that. But I'd have to rent a renderfarm to do it. ;) Each frame about 6 hours, that would take like forever. :D

I'm sure that if you cut down the resolution and adjust some render settings you can get a decent rendertime. BTW what renderer did you use? Mentalray? Default scanline? It doesn't look like vray atleast. Oh and what kind of computer do you have?

Heh. Okay it was v-ray :) If you need any rendering assistance I have a C2Q 9400(3,5ghz) which is currently already rendering but should be available by the end of this week.

Thanks a lot for the offer. Beast you got there. I guess it renders like a lightning bolt. :D I'm working on another animation right now. Have to learn it as I go. Till now all I did was stills, not animated stuff. But it's fun. :)
