after admiral westwood gained control over the british space empire a squadron of freedom fighters using Hellhound mk iii fighters lead a raid against the alien ship that westwood is using to threaten the earth. the raid is partially successful resulting in the destruction of the massive ship’s hyperspace drive however the ship is still armed and capable of causing severe damage to targets within the solar system. after the raid the surviving fighters, around half of the force that took part, flee into hyperspace. unable to realise what they are about to jump into some of the mk iii Hellhounds leave hyperspace at rendezvous point “D” , where a force of destroyers and mk iv fighters loyal to westwood is patrolling. to give the rest of his squadron a chance to escape the squadron leader draws the fire from his comrades by launching a suicidal charge at tone of the enemy destroyers, at the last moment he alters course to avoid striking the ship’s hull and dives towards the planet corot-7b. he is pursued by two mk iv fighters…
sorry if it runs too quickly.
i used path animation for the routes the fighters fly along and cylinders with high emit materials for the laserbeams, the explosions were made with expanding high emit spheres with displacement from their textures and halo particle systems set to create lines when rendered.
i used the compositor to add glare.
what do you think?
