Starfield background (with space dust)
« on: July 08, 2008, 05:55:57 AM »
You never know when the next emergency will strike! 

Just the other night, I was right in the middle of assembling my latest TG2 scene file.  Then, out of nowhere, I realized the scene must be Science-Fictionalized ASAP - or else!  Luckily, I had this clip file available and the problem was solved on the spot.  That was a close call for sure...  ;D

Many thanks to the other TG2 starfield pioneers.  You showed it was possible, so I figured I'd make one of my own, some of which was based off of previous ideas.  Its still a work in progress, but since I haven't had a chance to post or share in a while, I figured I'd go ahead and share this. 

Below is a native render featuring this clip file.  It renders quite fast.  This one took just over 2 minutes at 1024x768, quality 1.0.  TG2 is amazing yet again!

Be sure to click the image to see it fully sized.  It is a starfield after all.

Thats great.
I´m feeling humble.
you made it lightyears closer to the galactic center than I did.
Just posted an image using Pachalmars´ sci-fi sky, but I´ll have to try yours also.
Best Regards, Jan

Just downloaded! 8)
They just issued a tornado warning and said to stay away from windows. Does that mean I can't use my computer?

When I import this clip file and render, I get large chunks of solid black in the sky. For example, in this render you can see a solid black piece on both the left and right sides. Any ideas why it doesn't render the full sky with stars?

I just realized this is fully procedural. I had earlier thought it was made with image map =) Very nice job!

"insert clipfile" from the menu and then delete the default background node so you dont have 2 overlapping eachother
