Starfield Manipulation help needed...
on Nov 22, 2009 at 2:43:12 pm

Hiya,

I'm using Motion 3 to create a view of the Earth from space by following this tutorial







It's all working fine and I'm learning a lot, but I want to slow down the stars so they're barely moving in space, rather than having thousands of them moving towards the camera all the time.

I've tried adjusting the speed controls etc in the Emitters tab but without much luck.

Can anybody point me in the right direction please?

Many thanks,

Steve.

Use DRAG behavior to slow down stars. Apply it to the particle emitter. Use Amount slider to see the effect. Also use Z if needed to pull objects in Z space.
I hope this helps.

Thanks Zac,

The Starfield emitter doesn't have a Drag scaler but the Blur-1 1 inside it does. So I've adjusted that between the minimum f zero and the maximum of 10 and I still can't can't get the stars to stop moving or to move extremely slowly.

Thanks very much for the suggestion, I'll keep experimenting.

Cheers,

Steve.

Please understand that DRAG behavior is a separate behavior that can be applied to emitter. select your emitter then go to behavior, select SIMULATIONS and use DRAG. I should have been more clear how you apply Drag behavior. I hope this helps
