    I used some of your backgrounds recently and some of the ones from Art of cybertron I did find your ones a lot more detailed especially blown up. I put a few on a 55inch and yours were crystal clear. Since then I printed a few off on A4 as it's all I have access to and really happy my toys now have some background for there photos.

    Nice! :thumb 

    I think there's a bit more detail in mine because I work from the UK PAL dvds, whereas US formatted discs have less pixel resolution.

    Still working on getting good photos I find the best are in the day time with natural light but by the time I have got the kids to bed and get a bit of spare time try to rig up some sort of stage with a reading lamp lol. Probably just get some different colour sheets for the grounds. Amazing work you do you are a credit to this forum.

    Also trying to do some lost light pics too
    Oh plus the wreckers idw stlye

    Ok so let's have a little stroll round Cybertron! These are from my ReAnimated video edits, so they have been worked on to get added depth, corrected perspectives and generally spruced up, but I think they're still relevant to this thread...

    Oh man, I love this!! Can you do the same for the shots of Cybertron from the beginning of the pilot? It's so cool seeing these Cybertronian roads and architecture.

    Yeah the Cybertron scenery is some of my favourite, perhaps because you just don't get the same imaginative detail in Earth landscapes. Many pilot scenes are already on the first page of this thread, but I will definitely be revisiting them when I get round to animating those sequences!

    Have you done any of these backgrounds (or going to) from the modern BD version of the 86 movie? So much crisper colors, edges, textures etc over the previous washed out vhs and dvd versions.

    I haven't done anything from the newer Blu-ray, but only because my drive doesn't take BR... I'll probably upgrade it one day.
