Departure: First effort at spaceflight animation

Hi.

It’s been on YouTube for a few weeks but I have been working to meet a deadline so I didn’t get around to sharing it here. Although I have a couple of small details in this animation I am not happy with I still thought I would share it and see what others think. I hope for comments, especially from anyone with more experience than I have. Try and spot the two kids in the video; much easier if you have a 4k monitor.

The noise visible in some parts could be alleviated by using much larger numbers of samples, but render times in Cycles then got silly. I found Eevee very unconvincing when I tried it for this project but once I learn more about how to use it the results should be better.
