Very nice! I love "old and rusted"! Is this a spin-off of the runaway minecart thing started way back when on AnimAnon?

Arik: Yep that's the one, I was never happy with the old one and TBH lacked the knowledge to produce anything half decent. So I'm giving it another go now I've got more idea.

floyd: Yeah I plan on making a complete movie.
Carrara has an amazing renderer and it's super fast, sadly let down by the very poor modelling room though. That's why I still use Anim8or for most of my modelling.

Spiffy work falloffalot.

Looks so patinated I wouldn't want to get in her.

The rivets are really well done :)

Are you using procedural shaders? If so you can speed up your render time by exporting the obj with textures,then remporting them. The textures will be 'baked"on.

...and there, folks, is your "word for the day"... courtesy of headwax! "patinated"  :P

falloffalot, I was hoping to see the runaway mine-cart continue... I hope you finish it.  I always liked those abandoned mine scenes with the cart running amok along treacherous rails.

Headwax: No procedural shaders as yet just a colour texture map, bump @ +24%, a light grey highlight & Shininess @ 35%. Render time wasn't too bad but once animated with the rest of the scene it may be quite lengthy.
So, PSs may be an option worth looking at a bit further down the line.

Arik: I will be doing bits here and there on this project as and when I can squeeze it in. Having a little difficulty with getting a convincing track layout. Bending it on one axis is easy enough but when you start doing compound bends (2 axis) it starts getting confusing.
Headwax came up with a great idea of using bones for the track bending instead of deformers.
Hmmmmmm quite a good idea that!
