Saturn's Rings

Hi,

Without getting too fancy, how would you render Saturn’s Rings?

Thanks!

this should be posted in the question forums.
try there:
if it is about modelling in the modelling section etc.

make a disc, cut out the middle (now you have a ring) then turn the alpha down and tweak till you have it how you want it, thats how i would do it anyhoo.

And add a colorband, since Saturn’s rings aren’t monotonous in colour.

First I’d make a circle and extrude it to form a flat ring.

then I’d give it a sphere blend and work with the color band to match a reference photo of the rings. add a little noise and work on the specular and it should work for distance shots.
