First of all thanks a lot for the feedback I got on my Ships of the Line 2011 calendar image! Always great!
Doug also asked me to do an animation of the ringship. I knew that with the calender settings animation would not be an option. The rendertime is very high due to the reflective materials used. However my new machine, the smaller resolution and some adaption in the lights made it possible. It was my first serious animation ever, but it was fun to do, so it wont be my last. Also it is featured in Doug's video blog on StarTrek.com. That is a part of a dream coming true! :)
I now have taken a crash course into animation, so I hope to show some improvement the next time I'm featured.
Anyway onto to some other news!
