Working on an TOS Enterprise model off and on for a year and a half now, and decided to use the current version with different film “looks” in Blender. Background uses ESO’s all-sky image, and lighting is a combination of HDRLabs’ Milky Way and a keylight sun. These are all low resolution images.
Here it is using Ektachrome 310T:
Ektachrome was used in the Apollo missions, so this was the first try. It is slightly red-sensitive as in real-life, so probably needs some color correction. A more stylish look.
Here is the image with Eastman Double-X using 12-minute sensitivity:
Nicer balanced image, but noticed that the lower numbers are more sensitive, despite what is shown on the real-life spec sheet on Eastman Double-X.
And now with Kodak KAI-1010 sensor (electronic “film”):
The KAI-1010 is the basis for the imager on Venus Express, so this emulation also has some space heritage. Slightly different brightness than the Eastman Double-X. This one is growing on me.
I can’t upload the default (with no film) due to the 3-picture limit, but safe to say there are a lot more background stars with the ship more fully lit without using film.
Thoughts? Does anyone have their own particular film emulation they like to use?
