Topic: Star Wars Space Battle - CG
I am currently working on my Star Wars stop motion series called "LEGO Star Wars Rebel War" and I have always had an idea for an action packed space battle episode. What holds me back, is that I don't know how to accomplish something like this. My first option for doing it would be CGI which I have done quite a bit already (but nothing in a "space battle" scale). Up until now, for all the CG shots I have been using Blender but I am not really happy with it. When working on something small, it is all perfect but when trying doing more complex shots, Blender tends not being very "interactive" with compositing software like After Effects. I know I am doing something wrong in the process.
My question for you is, do you have any other 3D animation software that you know (or have used) which I could try? I am also open to any advice especially from people who might have worked on space battles before. I would prefer if you could give me an advice on Blender since I am not really happy in the idea of using and learning an entire new software.
