HOLY CRAP! That's amazing! I'm very surprised that it was possible for someone to make such a great model out of a bootleg trailer! Simply amazing. What did you use to render it?buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

Not bad, the proportions are off a bit I think. There's a little too much glow on it, and the glowing "engine core" isn't translucent.

Here's a screen cap from the bootleg..


As you can see the body of the cycle is not as elongated, and the front wheel is not quite that large. It could be the angle of your still shots of your render maybe?

Sorry for nitpicking, overall it's pretty damn good, and way *way* better than I could do.

based on your screengrab, I've just updated the cycle model. I still have to sort out the stripe on the rider, but I think the proportions are almost there

Very nice, I like it. Nice work imagine what you could do with an actual clear screen shot? Would be nice to see this rendered in Tron 2.0 buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

Cool!

Nice work, ed keefe!

I'm looking forward to your more polished version(s).

It's too bad there's only a blurry, limited detail image to use as reference. You're doing pretty damn good with it though.

wow, that's very impressive.

i'm a little confused about the "mechanics" of this new lightcycle.

to me, it looks like the rider is fused into the bike, or as if the bike is part of the rider.

it this is the case, it's a damn cool addition, and makes a lot of sense to me.buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

Yes, it looks like the rider is somehow attached or fused with the bike. I think it's based on the original light cycle concepts by Syd Mead. Check your TRON 20th anniversary DVD when you have the time. They show the early light cycle concept imagery on the special features DVD. They talk about it too, and why they chose a different LC design.

" Originally we envisioned the riders wearing costumes that had segments, much like a lobster lets say, and when they would crouch over in the seat and match up to the windshield part, their bodies would then become part of the bike....
..... that's why the lightcycles form, and in a flash they go over the rider's head and it all becomes an enclosed shape. "

Some things I spotted while freeze-framing and taking snapshots of the new Light Cycles...

A slightly more defined look at the structure of the bike.



Here's some of Syd Mead's concept designs for the Light Cycle, some elements of these seem to be incorperated into the TR2N new Light Cycles...

Also that lightcycle shapes anatomy video was cool. That's interesting how you managed to figure that out too. Definite props Ed buy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

excellent screen grabs. They give me a lot more information to work with. I also noticed the cycle has some sort of air-brake that pops out of the upper rear wheel and a foot rest attached somehow to the rear wheel and maybe a screen with a map on it on the 'dashboard'. I really like the way that the Syd Mead original ideas for the new cycle have been kept. I read some time ago that the original cycle was just too much for the computers back then to render. I think also that the rider does become part of the cycle and vice versa, as this was also a suggestion by Syd Mead for the original. Notice also that the stripe around the centre of the front wheel is also retained. What more can I say, it's a very cool cycle.

NICE!!!! Keep up the great work Ed.

A quick request... I just caught this thread today and I see you've already edited things since you posted yesterday. Could you keep up the earlier pics too? I would really enjoy seeing how this design evolves and not just the final product. I enjoy the process of getting there just as much.

Thanks,
Carlbuy viagra onlinehttp://www.bilimselbilisim.com/haberler_detay.aspx?id=42 viagra online

Carl it is done

I am going to spend a bit of time trying to reproduce the cycle trail. It looks like it flows like water so I'm going to play around with 3D studio max's particle systems and see if I can get close.
