I'm a super big fan of FSX :) I haven't played x-Plane, I'd looove to see this plane in FSX with some sort of glass view from the cockpit, maybe someday I can convert this model into a simpler lower poly archive that can be loaded... but it's not my goal right now. The goal is to make a shortfilm with this.

Updates, I've been learning how to make a heat effect for the thrusters (and for the turntable animation I'm planning):

160823.jpg?w=960

First I learned how to make particles in Blender, then I started learning how to make them behave like a fast moving smoke that would follow the turbines.

160827-2.jpg?w=960

Then after I got the particles working correctly, I used a composite mode in Blender with different render layers to get the smoke as a separate entity, then a distort filter on the finished render with the plane and the background, and the smoke's alpha as the parameter.

160829.jpg?w=960&h=720

The effect looks pretty cool and weird from certain angles:

The smoke was not following the engine close enough so the heat effect looks delayed. I did some fixes to the particle speed and also added the smoke as an entity so it receives light and can be perceived as a hot system. The final render got some issues with camera clipping and the fact that I wasn't baking the particles so they began producing the smoke every time I restarted the render (this animation took almost a week of leaving the computer rendering at night) So that choppy feel of the engine going on and off is because I didn't bake it <_<

Looks pretty cool tho!! Here's a wallpaper for you guys, with what I've learned so far:

Outstanding!

Love all the effort you're putting into this. Thanks for the updates! You must be learning so much with this project.

Heeey it's been ages! But I'm still working on this, it's just that my laptop sucks a little bit at rendering....

I've been working out the compositing in Blender to build up a turntable animation. Just finished it so here are some gifs:

here's how it works: I render the camera point of view from the lower cockpit screens (Virtual Environment Cockpit or VEC for shorts)

Then I render the rear view mirror camera...

And then the cockpit from the pilot's point of view, so it's 3 different renders to get the thing completed. I then add the HUD information.

Did the same thing again but with landing and navigation lights, compositing on an HDRI background so I had to extract the shadows information, and I re-composited the HUD so it looked better:

Previous test. I changed my approach after finding it impossible to match the texture HUD with the over-the-comp HUD:

So once again: VEC...

Rear view mirror:

Background from the pilot's perspective (so I can edit and comp the cockpit better:

Ta-da!

Incredible work! I'm really impressed by the level of detail you got in this! :)

 

BTW: I tried doing the YF-19 in Blender:let's just say... it... didn't go very well....

That is so funny, I wanted to do something similar, but you beat me to it

Not the best choice of words for a title hahaha, still regretting it because even I picture a YF-19 inside a blender, every single time

It's all good :D Just having a little fun with the title here.

 

All of that said, your work on this is really outstanding! The demo reel just blew me away!

Wow. Simply ridiculous, I have been out of the loop for quite some time and come back and see work of this caliber is simply mind-blowing. Absolutely amazing
