Galaxy (for Blender 2.5)


(Quiark) #1

Hi, I would like to present my galaxy model.

Inspired by the M31 galaxy picture from http://apod.nasa.gov/apod/image/0611/andromeda_gendler.jpg, I tried to model a realistic galaxy. I used meshes with only vertices and Halos to create many points in the shape of a galaxy. The shape was mostly generated by a script.

The .blend file can be downloaded at
https://bitbucket.org/quiark/galaxy/downloads/galaxy2.blend

The scripts I used and documentation can be found at
https://bitbucket.org/quiark/galaxy/src

seems very interesting

the model in the file has this been done with the script ?

i can see severl objects can theses objects be transfered to another file like making a new sky with galaxies showing in background?

has this been shwon in python forum so people can find this script ?

happy 2.5

Yep, the vertices are generated by the script. It’s also possible to just copy & paste them to another project, but if all you need is a background, it’s probably not worth it (it’s a lot of vertices). A bunch of statically rendered images placed in the background would be more effective I think.

I posted some info in the python forum now as well.

i did not see any particules systems for the objects

so theses are all objects with some halo added to gie the feeling of the galaxy
but it’s big i mean is there a way to get same feeling but with less size for all objects

with something like 6 MB in size it add quit a lot to any other scene that can be made
and makes the file very big

but it looks very nice

happy 2.5
