That's too bad. Thanks anyways.

General Anim8or Forum / Light does not pass through transparent objects
« on: January 11, 2010, 06:47:38 pm »
I'm having some problems with my current project. What I want is something like this:

But as you can see from this, as soon as I put in the windows, the light fails to pass through it.

The window's transparency is set to 0.1. What am I doing wrong here?  ???

Holy sweet mother of--

I better step it up a notch. If crazy crap this awesome looking is possible in anim8or, then I'm obviously not using it to its full potential.

That is crazy rad skills. The only thing about it is probably the toes, as you mentioned. It doesn't look like such a hulking mech will be able to support itself on toes that skinny. I'd expect them to be more bulky like the rest of the mech.

Also, I expect it should be more heavily armed in terms of weaponry. All I see are quad rocket pods.

Looks awesome. Can't wait to see more of it.

The first set:
Kris Grey, a captain in the Alliance fleet and an ally.

Icari Isidolde, a bounty hunter who joins the team to avenge her parents.

The second set:
Admiral Grey, Kris' father and the head of the Alliance military.

Ava Crescentia, the Prime Minister of the Alliance.

The third set:
Cosette Cosmos, PACT ace pilot and antagonist.

Claud Cosmos, PACT ace pilot and antagonist.

The fourth set:
Mr. Okrun, Asaga's father and a corrupt businessman.

Veniczar S. Acadius, the leader of PACT and the primary villain.

Hah! I hijacked by brother's laptop AND I AM BACK ONLINE! ^_^

Also, my 2D artist came through and finalized all the character designs. Hope you like them. I obviously didn't draw these, but I think they're awesome. >_<

First two characters:
Kaito Kanzaki, the pilot of the crumbling cargo freighter Blue Bird who through a series of unlucky events accidentally becomes the captain of the prototype warship Sunrider. Our main protagonist.

Sora Kanzaki, Kaito's younger sister.

Next set:
Asaga Okrun, a cheerful princess on the run from her parents, and one of the two main heroines.

Chigara-Bin Ashada, a refugee and a mechanical genius. The second of the two main heroines.

***face palm***

I think I overdid it on the 3D renders and blew something up in my laptop.

1) Sometimes the monitor refuses to display anything period and is just green, pink, and black static. Hooked up to an external monitor, it displays everything fine.
2) Sometimes the system comes to an halt, the screen slowly fades to white, all the colours bleed, and blue and red microchip patterns form on the monitor. Nothing works and the only way to escape it is to force a shut down
3) Sometimes the monitor flickers

I'm not sure whether it's a burned out graphics card or a burned out monitor. Case 1 leads to me suspect it's a broken monitor, but I don't understand why that would cause system halts and colour bleeds. Maybe both the monitor and the graphics card are busted?

Alas, how I wish for my own personal render farm...

Here's some more ships.

Here's a much needed update after a long hiatus. I've fixed up my renders, so hopefully they look more eye pleasing. I also have a bunch of new ships too.

Woah, now it *definitely* does not look like a chocobo...

I have no idea how you wire those meshes so well... Whenever I try making anything more complicated than just a basic geometric shape, everything falls apart very quickly. XD

Got a new ship made... And just in time for the New Years too!

Hey, it looks like a Chocobo! Looks great. =3

Well, if I'm the only one seeing it, maybe I'm just being too nitpicky. XD I tend to do that with my own works.

Mmm... As for what I intend to do with these ships, all these models are actually assets for a much bigger project I'm working on right now. I'm hoping to create a manga with 2D hand drawn characters and 3D modeled ships and backgrounds, kind of like Macross Frontier. Right now, I'm more focused on getting the star ships done first, but maybe I'll also post the 2D stuff here when I get them done.

Maybe it's just my own imagination... But doesn't the ship kind of look like it's curving downwards as it gets further away from the camera? It's like seeing the curvature of the Earth... On a ship. You can't see it as much on the side view, but on the front view, where the entire hull of the ship goes further away from the viewer, it's much more noticeable.
