that is a sphere with a fractal (composite) material, with lots of particles. learn some krakatoa, that will make your journey more valuable and exciting

Okay. But,do ya have any tutorial for this? I tried to find for days. Couldn't find one. If I learn krakatoa, you sure that I will be able to create? Thank you la.

krakatoa will help you create the amount of particles u need for realistic solar flares, by partitioning your pFlow particles. it won't create your solar flare effect

a good tutorial for u to watch: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mihDKHrIrKQ
(it is a series)

*edit - i would recommend u watch all of them, and take some notes - maxcookie is nice, that tutor is great

Look at the movie sunshine, or some of the nasa clips on youtube as references...your "realistic" goal is not realistic at all. Ideally you'd need a fluid sim, but animated procedural maps could work..
