About ten years ago I flew to Malabo; a small island of the coast of East Africa. It was one of my most impressive flights. Like a opening scene of Jurassic Park; lush jungle, volcanoes, and beautiful clouds. After landing I spotted a wreck just next of the runway. It was left there some time ago. Time and the tropical climate had left its mark.
Modeling: 3ds Max
Rendering and Vegetation: Vue
Inspired by the beautiful Scandinavian landscapes I build this image.
Using the same technique as the F16, I imported the model from Flight Simulator into Blender via 3ds Max to Vue.
I love the mix of vue with “traditional” 3d modeling. I didn’t do the modeling of the aircraft (I thank iFly for borrowing their beautiful model) so I have to come back one day to this image and replace the aircraft with one of my own. For what it’s worth.. I modelled the approach lights
I found out it is possible to import models from FSX into 3ds Max via Blender and then export to obj so you can import it into Vue. Are you still following me? It is not so hard but also not easy. Especially textures is hard work. I Thank Aerosoft for their beautiful F16 model.
My girlfriend took the photo a few weeks ago on the beach. Still working on the B767 but no harm in rendering some test images. KLM no longer has the 767 in service so I might have to rebuild it and make a more current plane.
