@00:24Wow! Wonderfully done. I wouldnt mind watching a feature lencth film with that level of animation, IF the script was good. Some sort of kickstartered sci-fi/science fantacy movie.

I just got invited to the DeviantArt film, so I re-submitted this earlier deviation, but now in its proper Film & Animation category. Enjoy!

After messing around with Sketchup enough to get my modelling up to speed, I turned to the animation feature. It's limited, yes, but with a little creativity (and the help of nothing more then windows moviemaker) I got this animation short to work. it's an experiment before moving on to larger animation.

The ship is the corvette FDC-307 Masamune Shirow and made by :iconmarrekie: Go visit his DA account for more sweet Sketchup models and other scifi art.

@00:30As an avid science person I feel it necessary to point out that there is no sound in space.

As someone who apreciates art I feel I must say "Cool"

how exactly did you animate the thing?

Well, animation in sketchup is pretty simple. Just set up two camera point in a straight line just underneath the model and set the time to move the camera between the two point to get the desired speed.

I didn't know how to do proper backgrounds back then, so this is actually a high res picture that I imported as a model (of a large rectangle) and then enlarged to humongous size inside Sketchup to hide the movement.

Also, the model is flipped upside down to get sunlight from below (Sketchup only knows normal calendar-based sunlight).

The rest is just done via export >> animation. I hope this is enough info, otherwise just let me know!

If you have Sketchup, why not just File >> Export >> Export 2D image?
