She must be making 20 knots! That's an interesting render. The figures are very convincing.

5 knots actually. Same setup as in the other recent movies. It is an optical illusion due to the fact that the camera is extremely close to the water surface and the little waves are passing by just a few centimeters before the camera. Not so optimal after all.

Hi,
here some updates from my lifetime project after a longer break. I am revisting it dramatically at the moment. My crew got some spectacular new members. It is not perfect and amateurish but some hard challenges could be solved.
More to come...

 

This goes into the right direction ...

 

 

I need some more of them:

 

 

The latest effort. Made me almost crazy ...

 

 

This is an easy one.

 

 

He will have his place on a yard.

 

 

Pulling ...

 

 

The best imho out of this group ...

 

 

This was the second i made ...

 

 

Again on the yard.

 

 

This is all for the moment.

Quite amazing, the animation ! I noted the same, that the change of hands during pulling isn't quite right, as there is a moment when no hand touches the rope, which would be physically impossible, the rope would drop immediately or run out.

Some progress on the ship. The bowwave animation has been revisited. There is an area below the wales being wet and reflectve. The wake along the hull as good as I could achieve it. Outmost difficult considering the complexity of the overall setup.

Oh, my ears and whiskers! That's quite the flyaround. All I'm missing now is the sound of water against the hull, flapping of canvas and shout of orders!

There are no words for this... it just has too much "Wow" in it.  I've played it 6 times and every time I see more detail.  The two men on the yardarm and one in the top, the movement on the deck, even the view through the gunports.   I shudder to think of the render time to get all this in there.

Very impressive work.  Hand over hand is the correct technique BUT, one hand must always remain on the rope being handled.

 

cheers

Right. I was restricted to the motion capture I got and to my own ablilities. As a detail in the overall composition it does its job.

Indeed. Render time was horrible. Several weeks. Each frame around 25 minutes. The ocean did consume most of ot. I was concerned that my little 10 year old Dell workstation would be harmed. But this is obviously what it is made for.

Just seen this - stunning. Love the seaman in the Hawaiian shirt!

I won't let him on board.

Yep. Attaching sound to objects and areas in the 3D scene is something ahead of me. Will see when I tackle this ...

About the NRG

If you enjoy building ship models that are historically accurate as well as beautiful, then The Nautical Research Guild (NRG) is just right for you.

The Guild is a non-profit educational organization whose mission is to provide support to our members in their efforts to raise the quality of their model shipcraft.

The Nautical Research Guild puts on ship modeling seminars, yearly conferences, and juried competitions. We publish books on ship modeling techniques as well as our world-renowned quarterly magazine, The Nautical Research Journal, whose pages are full of articles by master ship modelers who show you how they build those exquisite details on their models, and by maritime historians who show you what details to build.
