Research Resources for Digital Apps
Initial thoughts and work using astronomical objects in Cinema 4D. Some other videos that may help.
So far I have blogged this. I want to research moving on from here. see below.
Sun and planet simulation that i created using this research
Camera rotation (Jack Hurley, 2013)
Planet Earth Maker (sgste, 2013)
This is a very useful resource which I have used for realistic surface mapping.
Orbiting planets (PaternoPhotography, 2012)
This is a step by step walk through the method. I am going to use this.
Planetary rotation and tilt (Thomas Joseph, 2012)
To make the planet appear realistic it needs a tilt. This is a very helpful video which I will use to incorporate his method in my digital application.
Creating The sole system (StePPin’ In, 2011)
Whole system approach. Stimulating me to create the whole system.
Cityscape in 5 mins
This is an interesting video to create a sci fi cityscape. It requires a plug in which may be difficult to obtain.
Low poly is interesting for not suitable for this project.
Low polygon world ..not so good for this project
Animation- quite complex really for a simple world creation.
Very useful video title. As I having trouble understanding the animation prices in Cinema 4d
Interesting particle animation. This makes me think about atmosphere being striped away from a planet by a gravity well.
Orbiting planets (Pachalis Boras, 2013)
Superbly useful video.
Combining the techniques of circling the camera around a target (Jack Hurley, 2013), using the appropriate inclination (Thomas Joseph, 2012) building an orbit then increasing that system will allow me to create a complex planetary simulation (Pachoulis Boras, 2013), (StePPin’ I, 2011). The photo realistic effects ( sgste, 2013) will allow me to the world look stunning.
My project to create an artefact of digital solar system extra-solar system is making progress.
