LDD/MLCad 15D The Black Pearl Project - A joint venture by Courleciel and Papacharly EDIT April 1st 2015: Black Pearl mpd-file is available now. Please also note the relevant post #15 below! End of last year I had been invited by Courleciel to join a project he already started. The goal of this project was to virtually build the Black Pearl from the Lego video game “Pirates of the Caribbean” and, in a second step, to “make great renderings”. At this time the ship had already been built by Courleciel in real bricks. Starting point for this project was an “old” lxf-file (Lego Digital Designer) by captainjack. The virtual model was significantly optimized by Courleciel so as to make it more accurate and complete. A lot of parts have been repainted, some new elements were added (such as anchors, bell, grating, cannons...), and some were adjusted or rebuilt (like the capstan, figurehead, lanterns, masts...). After the model was nearly completed, the LDD file was converted to the LDraw format and my job started. According to Courleciels conceptual work I added rigging, rails, ropes and strings by using SR3D Builder and MLCad/LSynth. Sails were directly created in povray. Additionally it was necessary to manipulate some original LDraw parts (e.g. # x1609 batarang, see stern) to make them authentic with regard to the video game. Finally we decided on all setups for being rendered. All renders have status “as rendered”. There was no “photoshopping” applied, aside from scaling down and anti-aliasing. I have not counted all the hours I spent working on this project. But doing all the work Courleciel and me had a lot of fun. So we hope that you also will enjoy our work and have some fun too. High resolution “technical renders” showing the conceptual work of Courleciel can be found here. For high resolution images of the movie scenes click here. And here is the outcome of our project:: First we have some technical renders of the Black Pearl. Then we show some movie scene remakes. For all those which are not familiar with “Pirates of the Carribean”, please find the original movie scene respectively an original video game screenshot below each rendering. Here comes a remake of a video game screenshot: Two movie scenes from part 1 "The Curse of the Black Pearl": Movie scene “Pantano River” from part 2 "Dead Man’s Chest" Two movie scenes “Locker” from part 3 "At World’s End" Last but not least we have an atmospheric and maybe kitschy sunset render which is not related to any movie scene.
Virtual Movie Scene “Snowspeeder vs AT-AT” from Star Wars Episode V “Battle on Hoth”: Wedge Luke fights an AT-AT. Scenery and models (75049 Snowspeeder and 75054 AT-AT) virtually built with SR3D Builder. String (Rope) built with MLCad/LSynth. Povray render. Povray-file generated with LDView. Pure Render. Hope you like it! Edit October 16th: Now it is Wedge's "orange" Snowspeeder!
A RIVER RUNS THROUGH IT I like this movie as well as fly-fishing. So my goal was to copy the movie poster by using virtual legos. The scenery was arranged with SR3D Builder. Fly Line (string) generated with LSynth (MLCad). Rendered with Pov-Ray: For lighting I used 6 spotlights. For getting closer to the mood of the original movie poster I disabled radiosity and used focal blur. The original movieposter: It's my first poste in the "Special" forum. So hope you enjoy it.
