Topic: Star Wars LEGO VR Production Log

Hey guys.  Thought I'd crack open the old animation folders and give this another shot.

I had made a Star Wars LEGO 360° VR video a while back.  I wanted to make a series out of it, add a story element to the VR experience.  Therefore, I've been delving into model building lately, getting more vehicles made, and exploring 360° elements such as adding effects post-render and 3D sound design, so this will be a production log of that.

I'll generally post final or near-final renderings or tests here but if you want to see more, follow my social media pages.

Also, I'm open to story ideas, time periods (Clone Wars, Galactic Empire, etc) and links to models I can build.  Thus far, fighters and small vehicles are to scale, but large ships like Star Destroyers and cruisers are not to scale.  Depending on the story, I think it's best to follow the pilots rather than a big slow ship so big ships tend to be in the background, therefore require less detailed to-scale models.

For now, here are some ships I've made.

SWEET!!! I especially love the TIEs and the X-Wing. What programme do you use to create/render these?

Blender for modifying pieces.  Carrara for animation.  I want to eventually work solely on Blender but it is a bit of a learning curve compared to Carrara.

Construction process of the Imperial Cruiser

Design derived from Darth Soban's Bricklink instruction.  His was good.  I made it better.
