There's so much motion blur that it looks like a screencap from FC! I don't like the blur, but I am a Sovie FANATIC! I think it's the most b-e-a-u-tiful incarnation of the 1701 registry since the Connie refit (the music track that plays when Admrl. Kirk is re-introduced to the Enterprise is so dramatic and passionate that it nearly brings me to tears), despite any claims that she's any less than a work of art!
Back to the point, could you make one with less blur?
Thank you, I find the Sovereign class starship to be quite beautiful as well, though there is a certain elegance to the Galaxy class. I could whip up a version with less blur, sure. You mean just on the background, or the image as a whole? Part of the reason for the blur was the fact that I had to upscale the render of the Enterprise, since I no longer have the tools necessary to render it at the proper resolution. Glad you like it!
Nah, it's okay. I render models quite a lot, so I know how it can be when you can't get it right, or at all. I once textured up an awesome diamond model, with reflections and refractions, tried to render it @ 4GBs of RAM, and it was still processing reflect/refracts well over an hour later! And even when I ramped down the global reflections, the rendering was agonizingly slow, and I just don't have the time to render a diamond for three hours!
Well when you do complex things like reflections and refractions it would certainly increase render times dramatically. The Enterprise render here only took a couple of minutes, but I don't have the model or 3ds max anymore
