How do I make this Sci Fi Scene?
show user profile  cbflex
I would like to re-create a galaxy I found on google.

Could anyone advise me how I would be able to make something like this in 3ds Max?

depends what you wanted it for...

if you were going to fly through it for example, you'd need some rather complex particle systems.

What if I just wanted it to spin softly... But I'm mainly asking because using this image or others from Nasa or wherever into my 3ds Scene, wouldn't be considered my original material mainly because it's photographs are owned by Nasa or the artist.
I'd like to be able to create galaxies like this in 3ds Max, that if I wanted to I could also flythrough and past.

I know this is irrelevant to your animation, but in the time of one human life, a galaxy wouldn't have spun enough to be noticed.

The time the milky way takes to make one rotation is 240 million years!
