MY Robotech intro... wip. was created by Szpectre

Figured you all might like to see what I have been screwing around with for the last week or two. A couple of years ago I built a 3d model of SDF-1, but then I put it in storage and never did anything with it. A few weeks ago, I started playing around with it for some reason, looking to see how well it would animate. After completing the initial fold into Earth's orbit, I added the POV re-entry sequence, then I realized I was onto something.

So if I were to do the Robotech movie, it would open with something like this. If you cant tell, I was slightly inspired by the intro to the Metal Hurlant Chronicles tv series.

I added a navigation shield/bubble to the SDF-1 to help alter its course, because something 3/4 of a mile long doesnt turn on a dime.

I will probably add to it eventually by including the re-entry and the crash landing on Macross Island. I dont know.

SDF-1, the Moon and the Earth all built and rendered in Maya. All effects done in After Effects. Edited in Premiere.

The music is a song called Mataleon by Roberto Feltracco.

I do not own the rights to any of this, including the music. I am nothing but a lifelong fan screwing around in his free time.

Everything (minus the fold, nav shield, sun, and engine fx) was built and rendered in Maya.
