Here’s a collection of fun things we showed in last friday’s weekly:

  1. Chuckie says:

    It’s all coming together really well.

  2. PhysicsGuy says:

    What is up with Ian in the chair?

  3. Tycho says:

    Whaa ! Great work ! @but why that much red point in dome of demise .jpg ?
    Is it a cycle issue ?
    And what is Ian doing in his chair ?
    Nevermind, it’s loocking better and better and all start looking good together ! Still miss some smoke and fire from explosion but would come at time isn it ?

  4. stephen says:

    I think the CG Ian needs a bit of work, his face looks a bit too plasticy. Chair looks good though, good comp.

  5. Big Fan says:

    Dunno but whatever you have tweaked its suddenly all looking much better now?..well done. Looking forward to seeing the premiere. I am needs a sauna or something.. ;)

  6. MxD says:

    First-class stuff, boys ! Really top notch ! 10/10 :-)

  7. Micah Denn says:

    Ian’s taken the traditional directors chair to an epic new level.

  8. Blendiac says:

    Awesome chair!

  9. Kirado says:

    Looking good, but is the one scientist missing his gun arm?

  10. Manuel says:

    I think i can spot a Depth of field issue on the background, the steel structures seem to be much to sharp for their distance.
    Epic Ian is epic!

  11. 3pointedit says:

    Do the smoke trail from the assault shot also get motion blur? If so, how? Map smoke to cards for vector blur?

  12. Gamble says:

    U hae sense for humor :D the nyan cat on the ship :D :D :D

  13. postrock says:

    I’m not sure if Dome_of_our_demise is a render or concept..i’m thinking render..it looks amazing.

      You should re-read your comment about IQ above. <_<

      • postrock says:

        Why? You have proof its not a render?

        If you havent, there’s nothing in common between my comment and the one i was answering to.

    • Stuart says:

      I’m hoping it’s not a concept either but I’d say it is. I’m quite happy to be proven wrong because it looks like a finished shot to me.

  14. tristan says:

    Hey good work guys.
    One thing, I already noticed in the teaser, the neon sign on the ship get destroyed by a robot. But it didn’t switch off, even some pices fly around and it’s still glowing. Short twinkle when it get hit and then off, looks better maybe?

    • mbue says:

      But … but … but then you can’t see nyan cat fly! ;-)

      On a more serious note: I guess since this is a basically a small easter egg I’d personally just look over this. Especially since it can be explained away by “future” glowing signs that have a longer after-glow or somesuch :-P

    • zomby says:

      In my opinion sign is not a neon tube. It bent from uranium rods. Rods coated with phosphorus, that absorb high energy radiation, and reemit it in visible spectrum. Sign colors is produced by using different composition coatings (like yttrium).
      It much cheaper, than to pay electricity bills, because sign emmiting lite many years without external energy source. Also its more ecological because electricity (that power neon tubes) usualy made in environmentally unfriendly way. And rodes emitting lite, even if they broken.

  15. Christoph Pöhler aka Dracio says:

    very impressiv stuff (again)…

    the sintiest shut out is amasing and the blackbourt is very simular to my privat minde map of howe to talk to woman :)
    (funny and scary at the same time)

    • Christoph Pöhler aka Dracio says:

      or Puppie(s) (real sceary if you think about it)
      A) a Rose
      2 Roses
      B) Dozen roses

  16. Freakygeez says:

    Not sure if it’s me but the Band-Aid doesn’t look quite right, looks bright where there should be shadow.

    Can’t wait for it to come out :D

  17. Awesome says:

    WOOOOOOOOW!!! That looks amazing! …I was wondering if the cycles renders will make the cuts, or will they re-render them? It looks a little staticy, if you know what I mean…

  18. Awesome says:


  19. CorsairX says:

    Loving the updates – but if I can lodge one small complaint; the new website layout is cool but utterly borked on mobile devices. Neither my iPhone or Android phone can render the site. My job gives me a bit of down time at intervals and I miss being able to check in to see if there is an update!

  20. Bred says:

    Hmmm almost one week passed and no new post?

  21. Guido says:

    Hey mango-team, what’s the status?:-)

  22. ton says:

    Crunch time! But I’ve posted some images :) A post by Sergey is coming soon too.
