Trying Out an Illustration Style

I dragged out my old Carrara 5.1 Pro with WireFrame Pro installed, and imported my Free Trader model to get this illustration look. It's one of the reasons I still have Carrara.

A Re-Mastered Broadsword Vue Scene

Last night, I was looking all over for my Broadsword scenes. Then I realized they were all done virtually instead of locally. I was able to reverse-engineer one of the scenes I did in the past and create imports from it for use in a Vue scene that I had thought I made for this ship in the past.

I guess what I'm saying is, this is my first render in Vue, of this ship, in over a year. A one-pass render with no layered processing, that I normally used Paint Shop Pro for in the past with my Broadsword and Cutter models.

So this Vue scene file here will be my new master to make renders of other scenes from.

No Landings Allowed

Looks like I'll be using the start of an old space elevator model as a base for my highport. It will give the Free Trader something to tether onto, or park inside of.

For reasons unknown so far, ships may not be allowed to land on the planet surface. So all trading is done from orbit.

Finishing Up the Ship Model

A passenger, sitting in the Captain's chair, looks out at the planet below while wondering if help will arrive.

I added a Poser 6 figure (the V3 variety) to the Free Trader model. Gave her a sitting pose first before importing the PZ3 file into Vue 9.5 Infinite. I ended up having to resize her, as the video will show.

"Cold As Ice" is Her Name

The blue stripe came first. Then the name. Then the dice, rendered in modo.
