Near the end of the last event, we were at Solus base on Aresthea for a stack.
I think there was about 15 ships, 2 cruisers, the rest were mostly interceptors, bombers and a couple of corvettes.
Majority of ships were from the red faction. One of the cruisers parked in the bay with the other ships hanging or flying around it.
The lighting at this location lit the geometry and the surroundings beautifully making the colours of the ships really pop.
On top of this, it perfectly showed the scale of the different ships in relation to one another and the environment.
It was glorious to behold.
We then started flying low over the landscape, matching velocity with Dan or Keith, accelerating slowly, then turning at a slight angle towards the sky, leaving the base behind us with beautifully backlit trails as a bunch of mostly red, some green interceptors, bombers and corvettes jumped to warp.
In that moment I was ecstatic and all kinds of happy, satisfied and I felt complete, not joking here.
Then I hit a button to stop recording and with horror realised that I did not hit record for that last bit at Solus base on Aresthia and I’ll hate myself forever for being so stupid.
The rest of the filming went beautifully. I have more epic battle sequences then I could have dreamt for. I have some editing to do still, after having spent this past week editing down from over 400 clips to just the best bits.
I can’t wait to share those with you guys and you can expect a stream of even cooler shots, gifs and clips incoming.
So for the next community event, I would like to put in a request for a repeat of that last bit
at Solus base from last time.(@INovaeHutchings)
Also, if any one else has footage of that last bit at Solus base, please let me know. 2560x1440 would be perfect.
