Clouds Flythrough | Cycles Blender Tutorial

Posted by Aidy Burrows on Dec 15, 2016

After this Flythrough video youโ€™ll knowโ€ฆ

  • How to use a particle system to create a starfield.
  • How to create a star with built in streaks no compositing required.
  • Faking volumetrics with an array.
  • About the awesome Space VFX Elements series. ๐Ÿ˜‰
  • A sense of completion for reading all the way this far down the bulletpoint list. Bulletpoint list reading level up!

Distance fade node group can be found here in this blend file.

HEY THERE! Space travellers! Cloud crusaders! Nebula, ummmm, peregrinators! (Had to break out the thesaurus for that one.)

Like the peregrine falcons of the sky (those guys can get to about 390ย km/h – crazy speeds!) we’ll dive through stellar nurseries in this latest bonus and free tutorial from the Space VFX Elements Series!

RESOURCES

Hello Aidy, I have a question ๐Ÿ™‚
Instead of rendering our project why don’t we bake it to make the render time faster than rendering it directly as it is?

This renders extreeeeemly slowly. There has to be a better way to do this. I can’t wait all day for one frame.

It’s in depend with your computer, don’t worry what video card do you have? If it’s slow then choose cpu and go to performance tab and type in 16 value I hope this is gonna be helpful for you. If not let me know mybe I can figure out or ask someone else for a better way for rendering this project

Hey. Thank You for replying. I changed some settings thought I had it good but I only had 44 frames render in 24 hours. I finally shut it off because it was so annoying and I wanted to do this other tutorial. Not sure what I did wrong. Some of the settings on the video I couldn’t see because the screen was blurry even viewing it full screen on youtube. here is a link to the file https://1drv.ms/u/s!Ajr-iFYhArwogQpalTON4qFDTCbh

It worked I rendered just a frame and it was much faster but the quality sucks the stars are very pixelated. I was told in another tutorial that the render settings were for quality. And I haven’t had problems before on that setting. I think it was BornCG’s tutorial on how to render an animation from a bunch of PNG’s.

I’ll render this and see what happens. Thank You again for the help it wouldn’t have ever occurred to me to change the render setting *laughs*

Here’s one frame of the full animation

please tell us if thereโ€™s some solution to faster the render time for somebody who donโ€™t have a video card ๐Ÿ™‚
Thanks in advance
