Hello and Welcome to the Weekly Round-Up. The Blog that details what I do week to week. This weeks events revolved around recreating parts an old corrupted model of the USS Kelvin from Star Trek.
On Monday while reorganising some of my old files I noticed that I couldn't open up. It turns out that the file had become corrupted and so could no longer be used. Long story short; I decided to create a new file and try to import the different objects from the corrupted file.
I managed to get the main saucer section, some of the cannons, the deflector dish, and some of the lighting set-up. The rest was lost.
From here I had 2 options. Recreate the model using the old settings for the old render engine or, recreate the object and import it into the newer render engine as I went along.
I chose option 2. It makes the whole process longer but it will be more beneficial in the long run.
So this week I have been slowly remaking the main parts of the mesh and repairing the ones I imported (for some reason cracked appeared in the meshes and I'm trying to lower the polygon count).
I'm also adding in some extra details so the object seems or authentic to the original ship form the film. I'll also add some textures and create a name & number for the ship.
I mentioned last week that I had recorded a video tutorial but was missing the audio. I now have roughly half the audio for it and should probably finish recording it later this week. I'll then combine the audio and video and upload them to my YouTube channel. It will probably be up next week.
Did something a little different this week than my usual work, I helped get rid of a brick wall. For the most part it was pretty easy regular work that you would expect from moving bricks into a car then to the tip. There was one part that was more challenging than the other which was when I had to lift a pillar that hadn't been broken up.
It was heavy. So heavy in fact that I had trouble getting it into the car. And then when we got to the tip and it came time to unload it, the guys working there wouldn't even try lifting it in case they hurt their backs. Sure it was heavy for 1 person but 2 people could have got it over the wall without much bother. But they said no and it was put aside for a forklift to get it later.
I also managed to hurt my wrist yesterday doing some lifting. Wasn't even that heavy. Figures I would do it then and not when I was lifting that pillar.
And finally, I did my run this week in preparation for this race this Saturday (11 Miles YAY!). I'm now going to take Friday off from doing any proper exercise so I'm rested and prepared for it.
