I've just uploaded The Quantum Journeys animation on YouTube. The embedded link is on the main page, enjoy :)

I've scrapped the first export. I saw some minor things I didn't like, so I'm back in editing to do the final adjustments.  I hope to have it completed by the end of today (28 Jul).

I've just finished editing The Quantum Journeys. I am currently exporting it as an mpeg, the resolution is @2560x1440. I'll export it twice, first one as a Hevc mpeg and the other as a standard mp4,  just in case there are problems with the Hevc codec. Once exported I'll run through it to check if everything is ok.

I've finished all the rendering for part three (The Quantum Journeys). I only have the main title to create before I start editing. If all goes well I should have it all done by the end of this week.

In this subsequence we get up close to the ringed world and its moon. The fine details of the two worlds are better defined in this close up fly by. Once I've rendered this I can start work on the title animation and after that I'll start editing all these sequences together and matching the music with them.

This subsequence shows the holographic projector automatically starting up just after the starship exits the wormhole and enters the new system. This animation has 200 frames, so it should be quick to render.

Part three is going to be called "The Quantum Journeys" and will be in the main title for this part.

This subsequence is directly after the second subsequence. From a front view camera looking back at the starship we see it leaving the vicinity of the mother-ship rapidly then pulling away from the blue gas giant. I've just started rendering this 400 frame animation. After this animation there are two sub sequences left to render plus the titles animation.

The second subsequence briefly shows the engine readout animation just after the starship trails begin moving, this one is 200 frames.

I've just started creating the music for this project.  Finding the right music for this project was impossible, I've listened to loads of royalty free tunes but none took my fancy, well at least not for this project. I needed a tune that is adaptable for my needs. So it would be easier to build a tune from scratch. I confess I'm no Hans Zimmer, but I will have a good try and create some nice music that fits this project.
