I’m experimenting with improving planet animation using procedural and other dynamic feature. Do anyone have any recommendations or video links that could help? I’m adding the blends to this message. I created a scene that exports the background and planet in separate .exr files then I use a separate blend to composite using nodes. A frame takes about 3.5 mins to render at 720p. The render method is gpu with experimental for the planet.
This is after I played with the planet textured. I could tone down the brightness of the background and duplicate the planet in a smaller size.
