FX Wars - Warp Drive
This was made for the FX Wars - Warp Drive challenge over at the CGSociety.
The ship took me about three weeks total to build. As with the Atlantis shuttle I had done, I wanted this to hold up very close to the camera, so I made it very detailed.
The animation took about a month and a half to do with all of the FX added and rendering.
I used 3DS Max, Vray for rendering, FumeFX and Thinking Particles for the FX work, and Fusion for compositing.
