The lecture The VFX at B5 and Star Trek deals with the history, development and making of the CGI special effects of Babylon 5, Star Trek: Deep Space 9, Star Trek: Voyager and Star Trek: Enterprise. If desired, the lecture can also mainly cover Babylon 5 and would touch the other series only marginally. The video toaster (later Lightwave 3D), LAN cables nibbled by rabbits, data glitches and the eternal battle with the tiny amount of RAM in the Amiga of that time are reported. In addition, it deals with the design of ships and also explains and demonstrates how the special effects and space battles were made. Finally, you’ll learn how Foundation Imaging (VFX Company) stopped at Babylon 5 and started at Star Trek: Voyager.
