Particular - Creating a dome of 3D stars?
on Aug 17, 2012 at 2:45:38 am

I've been struggling with this for a few days now and have finally given up and decided to seek help here!

I want to create a 3D scene in After Effects where there is a character in the middle of the scene, and then as the camera is looking through the character's eyes, he looks up into the sky and circles around on the spot, looking at the stars in the sky. So in effect what I want, is a starfield in the shape of a dome that has some depth to it as well that I can place around my character. I want to use Particular rather than map a starfield image onto something like SkyDome as I need some depth and parallaxing effect.

Can anyone help me and explain to me in (if possible) simple terms how I can create this effect, or is there possibly a preset out there that does something similar?

Mike.

You're an angel sent from above, Mike!

That was exactly what I needed, and I learnt some new stuff too.

Thank you,

Mike.
