Some time ago I saw some wallpaper from Hubble telescope… if they knew you and your renders - they could have saved billions of dollars ;)
Great again!

Hey guys!

I have a question. Since I am Russian, I have a question for those for whom English is their native language. On the gif here attached, you see a piece of video that I will soon publish.



This is one of the 12 nebulae that will be there. The total duration of the video is 5,5-6 minutes, in 4K, approximately 25-30 seconds for one smooth slow flight around the nebulae of different shapes, colors and complexities.

I want to call it “The birth of not our Suns” and from this title the video will start. I want to say that nebulae are the cradle for stars; in the nebula, stars form in the future, each of them could potentially become for new civilizations what our Sun is for us. But this is not our Sun.

Tell me please, do the English say that? Are there any mistakes? Or maybe it sounds weird, but not a grammatical or some other mistake?

Denis, this is just so cool. I'd love to see the entire video.

A few thoughts . . .

Where new suns are born

or . . .

Distant cradle, new suns

or . . .

New suns for distant civilizations


Not sure any of these say precisely what you're trying to get at. Still noodling this . . . maybe inspiration will strike.

Oh, this is exciting to see. You must have found more optimized ways to do the nebulae since I last saw. Great stuff!

For the title, that version reads a bit oddly to me in English. Alternatives to consider (not direct translations, but similar in spirit, I think):
The Birth of Other Suns
The Birth of Distant Suns
The Birth of Suns Not Our Own

Incredibly cool!
How about 'The birth of unknown suns'? Has a mystery to it too.

Thanks guys!

Sboerner, I'm not looking for alternative titles, but thanks anyway for completely new variants. By the way, "Where new Suns are born" sounds quite good, but I would like more emphasis on the birth of new intelligent orginisms, we are always excited about the existence of someone else.

You must have found more optimized ways to do the nebulae since I last saw.

Of course, Oshyan, this way is called "Terragen's flat renders in AfterFX 3D space" :)

For the title, that version reads a bit oddly to me in English. Alternatives to consider (not direct translations, but similar in spirit, I think):
The Birth of Other Suns
The Birth of Distant Suns
The Birth of Suns Not Our Own

"The birth of not our Suns" — it "reads a bit oddly" or is it just a mistake and it will be wrong to say so? In other words, can such a name be attributed to "a bit unusual, but in general there is no rule that prohibits saying so." The fact is that I strive for a slightly unusual form, but at the same time I don’t want to make a mistake. In any case, thanks for the alternatives, the second option seems most interesting.

How about 'The birth of unknown suns'? Has a mystery to it too.

And this is good, although this has already occurred to me)

I'd go with Oshyan's 3rd one "The Birth of Suns Not Our Own"

As far as I can understand, this title is the closest to what I want to say. But it is so unusual for me, so strange for me that "not our own" are at the end of the sentence. And my tongue breaks and braids when I say this (but this is my problem).

Well in English it tracks very nicely but in your Native Tongue you may have to paraphrase that. The content of the title perfectly sums up what you seem to be aiming at.

You're very welcome! And I completely get what you're saying. (I spent 20+ years in a daily newspaper office writing headlines among other things. Once the headline writing brain cells kick in it's hard to stop. :)

Notwithstanding what I just said above . . . then how about:

The Birth of Suns Beyond Our Own

Perhaps it's the negative adverb ("not") that' tripping things up. A positive one ("beyond") may seem more, well, positive. ;D

FWIW!

Ok, Bobby, I will keep this in mind.

I understand, thank you, but most likely this is not what I need.
