Simple Animation
Read 113 times

Heres a simple animation that Im hoping to use as the basis for a demo to my ship build which is going well, more on this later. The key point is that this animation would serve as the basis only for an introduction and video to the ship design, this is just a test case to understand what and if any limitations there are.

The frames to each hemisphere would be wrapped with promo images from Turbocad 2018PP and include Lightworks, AnimationLab and any other imsi tools used in the design of the ship.

Daz,

yes, a promising idea.  So looking forward to the finished article.   8)

I know this is only a trial, but, the motion appears a little jerky to me.
I would suggest, when an inner cup reaches its limit of rotation, that you try continuing the rotation until it's no longer visible and, start the rotation of the next cup maybe one frame earlier.
Just a few thoughts.

Have a great day.

Regards Tim

Nicely done Darryl.   looking forward to seeing it with materials applied.  One thing I would suggest, is being careful with lighting,  in that I'd avoid any shiny spots when there is text in a material.

Andy lighting will be my biggest challenge with the complete design, to give you just an idea I want to zoom around the upperdeck with a camera view then subsequently travel each deck from bow to stern covering all spaces including engineering.
