This material is made by reprojecting 2D-images to a 3D-surface.
Then this 3D-model is animated to a movie file.
In the result, we can select an other vantage point from the Space
and see an old target from a new perspective!

A trip to Andromeda

I did an other simple animation from 2D-image, this time the Great Galaxy of Andromeda.
The idea is to show how this Galaxy looks like if we are able to travel outside of our home Galaxy.
-
-
Resolution of this online movie is reduced by the video codec,
please, if you'll like to see a full resolution movie, it can bedownloaded from HERE.
-
The original 2D-image can be seen HERE.
-
The speed in the animation is many many times of the speed of light.
The real distance to Andromeda Galaxy is about two million Light Years.

Fly me to the Moon!

I recently bought a private Lunar orbiter to shoot some videos from the Moon!!!

It's much like a KAGUYA (SELENE) orbiter but more advanced.

Not really, animations here are made by reprojecting 2D-Moon image to a 3D-ball.

Animation is then calculated in 3D-software (TrueSpace from Galigari)

In this animation we are flying over the terminator zone of the half Moon.

On the Left side the Earth shine effect can be seen as a Bluish hue.

The online Video quality is very low doe the compression algorithm,

please, download a high resolution video to see it in full glory.

A higher resolution Video can be downloaded from HERE.

-

An other video from the same 2D-material.

In this Video we are flying closer to a surface of the termintor zone.

A higher resolution Video can be downloaded from HERE.

-

The original 2D-image can be seen HERE.

-

Full Moon as an animation

In this animation we are flying 360 degrees around the termination zone of the Full Moon.

A higher resolution Video can be downloaded from HERE.

Original 2D-image of the Full Moon can be seen HERE.
