|Red Giants for Space Scenes - Part I|
|First, select the Sky & Fog palette and pick Simple Black Background for your Red Giant. This will give you the perfect start for your space scene and ensure that no horizon line appears in your image.|
Click on the ground plane to select it.
Now click on the to bring up the Object Attributes window.
Enter the numbers shown for
X & Z Position and X & Z Rotate.
Tip: The position of the ground plane has a lot to do with how the background will look.
Try entering number combinations from -100/100 to -2000/2000 to achieve different effects.
Tweaking the X & Z settings is encouraged. A few quick renders will satisfy your curiosity and give you the perfect background for your scene.
Now select the Edit Palette and locate the Galactic presets that you imported earlier.
Click on the preset of your choice or use one of your own. For this tutorial I chose Galactic Purple.
