The Enterprise A will have to be redone.  I forgot that someone pointed out that it crashes DS4 when you try to render it.  I have noticed that too and will attempt to fix it.

I tried your suggestions on the Enterprise A, and it still rendered with triangular chunks of varying sizes missing in the saucer, neck and nacelle pylon areas.

However, as you will be redoing the Enterprise A, it will no doubt be sorted. smile

Again, you always do sterling work with your conversions, and I look forward to future releases, and hope to see what conversions you have coming next. (hopefully some movie era stuff like the Phobos and Leavenworth).

Oh, and the new Enterprise-D conversion renders like a charm. No loading errors, or issues. She’s great. Awesome work, Matty. :D

Oh, it’s an awesome conversion, Matty. smile You really hit it right out of the ball-park.
Just trying to figure a way to make the deflector dish light up, without having to use Photoshop to add the rear glow lighting from behind dish emitter.

In Poser 8 and up you have the option of mesh lights.  You may want to find something you can put behind the deflector dish to give it that glow effect.  4 primative cyclinders may do the trick.  Or 4 resized primative planes

 

As for the Enterprise A refit, not matter what i have tried it still crashes DS4 when you try to render it.  So instead of trying to fix it I may just find someone elses model and convert it instead.  I dont see a point in trying to fix it for Poser when its not going to crash DS4 when you try to render.

Oh, I agree about the Enterprise-A issue. Hopefully one of the models on Foundation3D or Trekmeshes may work out better, and there does seem to be a few pretty Enterprise-A models on both sites.

Problem and solution with the Enterprise Refit has been found (helped that I looked at the log file for DS4)

I will decide how I want to fix it later as I have multiple options.

Matty, the Cantell renders like a charm.
I’m guessing that the original model was designed to have pivoting warp nacelles. But, still, you did an awesome job converting it. smile

Im not sure to be honest.  I dont remember there being much division in the model when it was converted.

That’s okay. smile It just looks like the original designer may have, at some point, played with the notion of having the pylons pivot up or down.

It’s still an amazing conversion. smile
