Yes, you read that right - footage. Finally got the Ajax to a stage to start animating and testing out some of the technical cheats I need for production. I've kept the lighting flat to give it more of a 60's feel - might play around with adding in a little specularity. There are corridors/rooms behind the windows to give a little depth, even room to add in a few characters at windows to spruce things up. Also managed to get a look for the bussard animation that works - starting to love Cinema 4D's global illumination engine. Still debating on whether I illuminate the impulse engine or not - dark in the original TOS footage, illuminated in the Remastered footage - depends which way TPTB wish to go.
