Leaving Las Vegas

I had to learn some Photoshop to mask out the motion blur for this Aerotrain render. I thought I could use the z-buffer to get a better result. Will keep trying.

Los Angeles to Las Vegas in 2 Hours via Aerotrain

A tracked hovercraft vehicle speeds across the desert at 150mph.

Aerotrain and track modeled in Hexagon. Painted in 3D-Coat. Rendered in Vue. The mirage effect was me painting a mirrored surface across the Vue terrain so that it would reflect some of the sky during the render.

This render shows the elevated track. Desert shrubs were created by Martin Frost.

Moved the Sun for this shot.

The Rohr Aerotrain Travels Through Escondido, CA.

Here's one visualization I did so far of the Rohr Aerotrain for Shonner. I'll do more renders if I have time tonight, depending on my schedule.
