Thanks everybody, I appreciate it Right now I’m modeling a new jet, as I have a detail shot (a close up) following this one…so I figure I might as well use the same one in this distance shot as well…thanks M.h.p.e. for the reference materials ! Japan Airlines it’s gonna be
I like the suggestion about the birds and smoke a lot…and the lights on the plane do definately need transparency, etc. I’ve been having a little trouble finding a good tute-reference on creating realistic lights, say on a car or a plane such as this…? Also, if anyone knows about lens-flare…? I think it’d be real nice if we had the impression
You know, re: the modeling of the buildings…I do appreciate that thought a lot, and agree…but in my plan I know that this is such a short shot…maybe 3 seconds, in this case I’m gonna test the animation first, and in general find ways to draw the attention into the center of the frame, as the jet passes overhead. I like the suggestion of some birds, as in the first second of the shot, I could possibly have them draw the eye (with their flight path) right into the center…then taken over by the plane.
This green color…i’m still confused about it, but I know that Keith is on to that solution in general…I’ll have to check if the lights are blue’d and study up in general about lighting
After I’m finished with the new plane etc, I’m gonna repost this updated
