my way to get STARS!
« on: January 12, 2007, 07:20:20 AM »
hi guys!

i will answer to all people has ask me the way to create stars like that attatched

first of all you need a starfield image...
that you've to go in the background object... change his shader with a default shader
go into the proprieties of it and set the starfield image in the diffuse colour and in the luminosity colour...
set the luminosity to an higher value (in this image i've used 10)....
that's all...
hope that this may be helpful!

Thanks - that is very helpful. Perhaps a starfield image could be included with T2TP.

Nice one mayda, those stars have been executed really convincingly  :).   This thread should be added to the list of tutorial links.

Thanks, Mayda.  This is cool.
So this is Disney World.  Can we live here?

Anyway you could spell that out a little better Mayda? Or possibly put the tgd in here so I can see what you're doing? Thanks.

May,

I agree that this should additionally be placed in the "Tutorial" section.  The subject of starfields comes up frequently and you have a very practical approach.  I might suggest that if you make a little tutorial along these lines to include a .tgd file and perhaps some links to some freeware that generates starfields such as "Universe".
Thanks for sharing,
Gary Poole

That actually works a whole lot better than the way I was doing it - thanks for that :)

[edit] don't forget to set the projection to "through Camera" though or it looks weird

i'm ready to write my tutorial accurately...
first of all you've to put the attatched "stars.jpg" files into your folder c:/ ....
this is a starfield that i've generated using glitterato (a photoshop plugin, youi may download it for free... it's a limited time demo)
http://www.flamingpear.com/download.html

first step, we want to add this starfield to the sky.
Go in the object panel, select your background, than the surface shader tab.
Into this you've to create a new shader, a new "default shader" where now there's a background shader.

Go into it and set the stars.jpg as a background for diffuse colour and for luminosity.
Set the luminosity value at higher value if you want to make stars visible by day.
