Charge! by Punakettu Charge! by Punakettu
There was no big idea behind this piece other than I just wanted to make a kick ass picture real quick.

I spent maybe 4 hours in all prepping the scene. The rendering itself took just over 25 hours to complete. Way more than what I expected but that is the price you pay for the nice motion blur effect.

I actually have plans to render a second picture of this scene from a different angle so tune in soon - same mech-time, same mech-channel


***16.5.2012***
Some minor tweaks to motion blurring. Also managed to reduce the render time significantly.

***5.6.2012***
Changed the material on the mech slightly.

***3.7.2012***
New missile effects and some fine tuning on the laser

just a thought.... since I *AM* the undisputed best Battletech player in North America (I say that with arrogance and pride... smile) I was always wondering about a lil omission when viewing pics of various Mechs especially in combat..
Hang with me here a sec....
I n Battletech the overriding limiting factor against any mech is it's heat buildup... now to dissipate that excess heat all Mechs have complex heat sinks...
Still with me...?
When firing in salvo's ( such as here) or even in controlled placement shots those weapons should be throwing off that excess heat into those heatsinks...
Almost done...
so when showing combat or weapons fire there should some opaque or "shimmering" or some effect of the heatsinks ( and their placement which has ALWAYS been a mystery to me!) disapating that excess or even "normal" heat buildup..

Just a thought..

A very dynamic pic, great sense of movement, and in terrain made for mechs to dominate all.
