This is really part of another project, the trench run animation. But making the TIEs look right has proved harder than I first thought, so I’ll post the completed one here.
No doubt this has been done hundreds of times… ah, well.
There are lots of little details that I’m not entirely happy with, but I decided that if I fixed them all I’d spend weeks on it, and not get anywhere with the real buisness at hand, the trench animation (see works in progress). Still, TIEs are meant to look cheap and mass-produced, and motion blur will hide any errors…
Tell me what you think !
