I had a break in the other project I’m working on (people who have read my previous posts can probably guess which one) so I decided to take another look at this image. Aside from doing it just for fun, I had some things to test, most importantly being rendering at 5184 x 2592 (6ft by 3ft) at 72 DPI, which I’ll need for the other project. Also, there have been some changes to the Stargazer, dock and shuttlebay, so I wanted to do a render with those that I can show off. The “big” image is 1/2 the original size and I also included a 1600 x 900 version for people with 16:9 screens.
I’m glad I rendered this image. Aside from making sure trueSpace could render an image at art print size and quality, I also was able to take a look at the ship and dock at that size, most importantly the textures. I had to redo the dock textures (again) because they were a little FUBAR at the higher resolution. (It’s good to find this stuff out now, not when I need it. ;))
