    As of today, I decided to amalgamate my Ships of the Line thread with the Lightsabers thread and make one giant Mega Thread. The new Legacy ISD is listed there are well under the Star Wars section.

    Cool idea. Have all your awesome work in one easy-to-find forum thread. :)

    Just downloaded your ISD, and am about to play with it in Poser Pro. :)

    Need some help. I'm looking for a TNG era brig, and came across this website of some fantastic made sets.

    http://star-trek-virtual.tripod.com/


    No idea who the guy/gal is who made it. I'm hoping someone might be able to help.

    Please take notice of the fact the character in the scenes is DORK!! these are old sets we could all use quite happily today.

    So can anyone help...Thanks.

    -Paul

    last time that site was updated was 2005 , and the stuff seemed to be for videos or movies, but would be cool to get the models, but probably not very likely :(

    Behind them a stream of civilian transports evacuate the Hells Gates system. The captain and crews of the Immortal, Enterprise, Intrepid and their gallant Andorian allies on the Kumari know their duty,Know what must be done. The Line must be held no matter what the cost, no matter what the sacrifice the line will be held . Into the valley of death they fly.

    Yeah that's all Brandon's work, he made all of those star trek sets for his feature length star trek cgi movies. For one thing, he uses Bryce for all of his sets & the majority of the movie except for the character animations. Which he uses poser with dork & posette (fast rendering & low resources) and considering that he has made 2 full length (2-3 hours completed) movies and is currently working on his 3rd now I can understand that decision. I think he did use V3 or V4 & M2 or M3 in his second movie for two characters Deanna Troi & Data but the rest are all dork & posette. If you are willing to ignore the mediocre poser characters & animation the movies themselves are quite amazing work all in all and clearly show that he has a lot of talent.

    Link to his current progress on the latest movie - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zBbULQOs6Sk which also has his two previous movies in the sidebar.

    He did release his TNG era bridge scene as a bryce .br6 file over at sci-fi meshes - http://www.scifi-meshes.com/forums/downloads.php?do=file&id=63 but I'm sure not lot of people make note of it since it can't be easily converted to anything else really. (I have it and it looks amazing when rendered.)

    I've drooled and drooled over that set, but I have to give Rduda 'props' and magor congrats on his Bridge 8 over a vanishingpoint. His is a easy to use and ready to use set.

    I do like the slightly raised platform so the people behind Nav and Ops can see the main viewer. If it were up to me I'd have a Mirror Universe style chair (LazyBoy ?) in the center and have it raised on it's own platform.

    Thank you for all the links. Got a few 3D movies to watch now.

    I'm not that well versed in Bryce, but I think you can send Bryce objects to DazStudio. I know with DazStudio you can send items to Hexagon and save them as .obj. I imagine it would be a major undertaking to parse out the whole model to make it manageable.

    There are over 3700+ pieces in that Bryce scene. Only way to do it is one piece at a time and then import it to another program for the daunting task of texture setup and welding. Having looked at it in Bryce 6 & 7, I cannot even one piece exported. I managed a whole 3 pieces of the set into DS3 x64 before killing it and giving up.

    I've read someplace someone else tried to export it to DAZ and Poser and didn't succeed very well either. The task was just too big and complex. I think it was the staff here at DAZ that attempted it.

    As Bryce 7Pro is free atm and does load the Bryce Scene, that's the way to get some background pics.
    Scene files do not convert to .obj files in Bryce for export. Don't recall if it was this bridge or a similar one by somebody else but it had the same issue.

    I'm fairly certain that I've seen of the hallways available as max files "loose" somewhere.

    The Bryce/Daz Studio bridge I've read isn't quite as workable as some would need it to be. I did one test some time back with the Genesis Gorilla. Set up the Gorillas and posed it in D/S, then exported it as an .obj. Then imported the .obj into Bryce for the scene. Worked well for stills.

    Made a quick rig for MdBruffy's horta and posted a test film here;

    It's not much but if wanted, perhaps MdBruffy could send me a PM 'cause I have a couple of questions ;-)
    edit: questions answered and yes folks, we have a Horta wip :-)

    OK, I'm going to have to get those morph packs for david & m3 before daz decides to archive them... Was kind of surprised to see they were still available actually.

    Got a Temporary Brig.

    The Hallway set I use so much for my rendition of TNG had a room that kind of fit the mold.

    Here you go for a look-see

    And an image from the MU Graphic novel.

    Wesley Howard (Crusher) makes an appearance...killing all but one of the bridge crew. (large Image!)
