Yes I am aware of the numerous moons around Jupiter. . .but only Io plays a part in this animation, hence it is the only one visible. Had it not been for some interesting foreshadowing, Io wouldn’t not have been included either. I checked out this sort of veiw in Celestia too and I didn’t see anyother moons visibe. I didn’t even put in Jupiter’s ring(but that will be fixed).
About Io reflection problem, I think it is because I have alphamapping enabled, so you are seeing through the moon to the texture on the other side. I will fix this as soon as possible
I will play around with the camera movement speed a little more.
The rainbow colored shield thing looks out of place because it has no depth. I know how ludicrous the idea of curved energy sounds to some, but if you use the wave effect (x and y) on that rainbow thing and animate that, then I think it will fit in. Oh, and I think the rainbow is there too long, as well. This looks really cool, though.
The way the scene is set up . . . I have several spheres for Jupiter. . . to create a 3D sort of atmosphere. The second sphere has a very small emit value that keeps the back side of the planet from going compelety dark. If you have an LCD moniter, you should be able to see this by viewing a picture at the different angles.
