Image Gallery - Front Room

This is a selection of images from the full collection which is available in the Supercar 3D Model Gallery.

You are encouraged to submit images for display in this gallery. Colour JPEG format images of 4:3 ratio (size 800 x 600 pixels or 640 x 480 pixels) or 16:9 ratio (800 x 480 pixels or 640 x 360 pixels) are preferred. Send the image as an attachment to an e-mail message to Austin Tate. Also send your full name and information about the 3D package or renderer you used to allow proper credits to be given. A JPEG format thumbnail of width 160 pixels (160 x 120 for 4:3 ratio images or 160 x 96 pixels for 16:9 ratio images) will be used to point to the larger image, so if you wish to render such an image separately for higher quality send that along too.

Modelling Systems

The original models were created in Cinema 4D from Maxon Computer. A free downloadable preview copy (save disabled, and rendering watermarked, but otherwise fully functional) of Cinema 4D XL, SE or GO is available for Apple Macintosh, PC and other platforms. This could provide a way to view and use the models if you do not yet have a 3-D CAD or animation package.

The models will be available in a variety of formats so that they can be loaded into your favourite 3-D CAD or animation package. It may be necessary to reapply textures in some packages or with some formats.

Example packages and their web locations are:

Maxon Computer Cinema 4D XL, SE and GO Macintosh Windows
MetaCreations Bryce 3D Macintosh Windows
Art*lantis Macintosh Windows
Strata Studio Pro Macintosh Windows
StrataVision 3D Macintosh Windows
MetaCreations Ray Dream Studio Macintosh Windows
Kinetix 3D Studio Max Macintosh Windows
NewTek LightWave 3D Macintosh Windows
NewTek Inspire 3D Macintosh Windows
Auto*Des*Sys form*Z Macintosh Windows
MetaCreations Infini-D Windows
Caligari trueSpace Windows
Amapi 3D Macintosh Windows
You may be able to find 3-D CAD or animation packages from a variety of sources at no cost. Older versions of some packages have been distributed as cover CDs on computer magazines (including Caligari trueSpace, StrataVision 3D, MetaCreations Bryce 2, Art*lantis, etc.).

Further advice and help on 3D modelling and related software is avalaible from The Star Wars Modelling Alliance's Information Pages.
