Lazed and I did create an RPL, but the render just made it look bad. We tried adjusting the lighting, the reflections, everything, we just couldn't get the render to look right. By the way, if you didn't already know, lazed and I are friends (we live 4 miles from each other) . He did create all of the other 3d stuff, but I did the RPL. Unfortunately, lasers with the shape of the RPL or Herc just plainly don't look right. :'( It's a shame too cuz I spent FOREVER trying to get the render to look right.laser_freak said:[quote author=darklandz link=1210813582/0#14 date=1210894524]amazing work!
be sure to add an RPL and Herc to that list if you have time
PS: Sorry to hijack your thread lazed, but I'd figure I'd answer cuz I knew the answer.[/quote]
Well ya it's not the body design it's the color. Flat black is not pretty when you render it in 3d. There is nothing special to it. If the RPLs were shiny then they would look nice and pretty, like the aquarius. Anyway, I have done a new version of the aquarius and have posted it down below. Thanks!!
PS: I should be having an animation vid up soon, so stay tuned!
