Had a few days to something completely unproductive, so...
It came out rather static and "posed", I think -- I'd like to try for something more dynamic next time. But at least it helped me test out all the necessary elements for a battle -- blastoids and boom-booms and stuff. How's it look?

D8ed,

I think you meant 1976 ;)

Thanks, folks!

1986, 1976 -- you're getting close.
The show premiered in 1966:eek:

As for the phaser beams (disruptor beams, to be trekkie-correct), they start as simple tube objects with luminosity and transparency set on an incidence-angle gradient. However, I cranked the glow up so much, the gradient might be superfluous. The "hit splashes" are volumetric point lights.

That, Sir is unpatriotically cheesy! You are the Camembert King, the Duke of Dolcelate, the Baron of Brie! This is the quality of SFX that has been sadly lacking in the Trek series of late.

Sorry to be a stickler for perfection, but I do think that the nylon threads should show up a bit more clearly: perhaps up the spec and lower the transparency?

And could we have a fuzzy planet in the background plate?

:D
