#55192, "RE: Titanic 3D model project"
In response to In response to 1


          

I've been hitting this project hard.
Really all I've been working on is on my to-do lists, rendering to spot mistakes and discover areas of improvement. The last thing to do is the additional air pump for the cooking surface heater.

Once it's declared "good enough" then the next phase is to work out all the animations which will include:
*About 55 main engine parts
*About 85 auxiliary pump parts
*Gauge dial pointers, cameras and a few other things

I've put together a basic storyboard which should bring the total video time to be around 20 minutes. That's a pretty long video to keep a person's attention- especially just moving around an engine room. You'd have to be a pretty hard-core Titanic fan to see it through... But that's who this work is for. It's basically touring the camera around, stopping for 10-15 seconds at points of interest and perhaps indicating what the various knobs and levers do.

BTW-
Once all the animations are completed and proofed then it's onto the rendering phase.
The complexity of this model has gone right up to the limits of my processing power. With a conservative and reasonable quality settings, it is about 20 minutes to render a 2D single 1080 HD frame on my octo core i7 notebook. I'll be running 30 frames a second so 20 minutes will take a lot of time.
The bulk of this will be processed on some Vista-era AMD machines and any other computers I can find to be configured as a rendering farm running 24/7. I don't really mind but it lets the community here know that a video will take a long time.

I'll do the 2D first for those without the fancy goggles and then again in 3D stereo VR for an unequaled experience. I render the 3D in 2500x1250 pixles/inch which takes about 45 minutes per frame on my octo core machine. Well, those old AMD Vista machines are good for something... right?

The room is getting really busy and full of stuff.
I think this is looking pretty good. Here we are near the fwd WTD:


At the starting platform. Notice the gauge board.
I tested several locations with the aid of the 3D VR. That was clearly the best place. I base that on the ease of viewing the gauges as the throttle(s) are operated. 5 main gauges per engine and a clock:


Catwalk first level:


Starboard side facing forward showing catwalk stairs:


Cylinder level. It seemed the Britannic plans showed an I-beam ceiling supporting D deck so those were added. A stairs forward goes up.


The stairs up from the cylinder level seemed to be the most logical position based on the existing catwalk and access to the direct contact heater on D level. This is an older test render done in VR but you can see my proposed walkways:


And this one came out absolutely spectacular if viewed on a 3D goggle. You're standing right next to the Port throttle wheel, great stereo depth all around and up to the skylight. It's the scene experiences like this that keep me going on it:



Thanks again for looking.
