Rotating Star Field II

Saturday, January 23rd, 2010

Last week I posted a Rotating Star Field. I’ve enhanced the script that builds the Vue scene from the star data to approximate the colour of the stars from their spectra and to size them relative to each other too. Unfortunately the high quality, uncompressed render comes in at about 1.2GB and I’ve yet to manage to upload it onto YouTube without some loss of quality. The version embedded above looks pretty good full screen but the colours have unfortunately been lost somewhere in the compression and transmission of the video.
