And here it is – the Восход-Д video finally released! Crank up the volume and watch it in HD!
Sound effects come from the Freesound library. Союз radio communications were downloaded from here (after a lot of scrolling). For those out there who want to know it all, the voice over the intro says ‘Attention: Moscow speaks and trasnsmits in video‘.
Most textures and backgrounds are mainly designed by me in The GIMP, but I also downloaded a few of them from CGtextures. Planet textures are from NASA/JPL’s Solar System Simulator 3D resources, Earth color, heightmap, specularity and cloud textures come from NASA’s Earth Observatory and its Blue Marble – Next Generation project.
The design of the spacecraft has been helped a lot by the Atomic Rockets website, maintained by one Nyrath of whom I don’t know much more than this.
I started this project around february, this year. My estimates say it took about 900 hours to complete (37 days), at the end of which I find my computer cluttered with 7 Blender files, over 150 textures and nearly 8 thousand rendered frames.
