Movies: Special Effects in Space III

In the midst of the '90s CGI became an option to explore. Here we see a Wing-Commander-like space ship (a game I loved to experience during my studies)  I created using Truespace Software.

The freedom of the camera and the objects brought new ideas. Suddenly it was possible to combine al those ideas we had before. The image below shows a very early experiment with hospital ship. The lights were added already, but the light sources weren't displayed yet as I created those by using several passes for lights, engine glows etc.

Of course, the cardboard star fields were history now. Now the backdrops were created by using graphic software.
