For one of my last jobs i had to create some space renderings for a japanese tv commercial. The client would like to see a rapid flight through a giant galaxy followed by a logo claim. My first weapon of choice was Trapcode Particular and Form.
The galaxy is made out a mix of Particular 2 and space pictures. Don’t ask me how many particles i have used, at least enough to get the ‘particle overflow’ error message.

This movie is just a wild cut through my test renderings!
