    Here is my first test spaceship for my upcoming Star Wars film.
    I used BSOL and Axogon to put it together.

    I know some of you are getting tired of Star Wars films but I’m afraid I couldn’t resist making just one.

    If anyone has constructive criticism on the test I’d love to hear it. (Compliments are accepted as well.)

    Pretty good. Is that grey splotch at the back of the ship suposed to be smoke? Perhaps you should try rockets. It would ad a bit of color to the ship. Maybe the ship should also go a bit faster.

    Great work! Only the sapceship is a bit ‘weird’ and unreconisable.

    Pretty neat! Could you please explain exactly how you used these programs to achieve this effect? The spaceship getting smaller until it disappeared and rolling over really looked great!

    I’m guessing you used BSOL to build a perfect bluescreen, then used Axogon’s Color Keyer to make that image transparent and the Mapper to move it around.

    Am I even close?

    Stefan.

    That’s exactly how I did it though a added a motion blur to smooth things out.

    Unfortunately not. I was so worried about lighting the bluescreen well enough that I neglected to light the ship properly. My next attempt will be better.

    I went back and did the shot over.

    The “smoke” is gone and the ship moves smoother.

    Yes the better lighting made the shot a lot better..

    But the camera Bumping or set bumping needs to be fixed.

    As you can see when the camera does an undershot of the ship it’s a bit bumpy and such, but when you start animating with Axolon, the bumpiness goes away and the ship dives in a smooth barrel roll.. That sorta degrades the shot there.

    other than that, Great!!
