2D star into 3D?
October 21, 2008 10:04AM

I am trying to create the illusion of traveling past stars and I'm currently dragging the premade "star" from the list of generators in the Library onto the stage (nice round orange dot with epsilon). It all loooks good and all except when I rotate the camera on the side of the stars then they look flat. Is there a way to extrude these elements or should I be importing a 3D shape like a ball or something? How would you do it? Any suggestions greatly appreciated. thanks!

There is a particle emitter called Star Travel. That should give you what you're looking for.

hmmm. sort of but not really. If you drag that emitter into 3D space then rotate the camera around that element so your looking at it's side - it is flat. That emitter (like the star i mentioned before) are both 2D elements. The do not have any depth to them.

Any other suggestions out there? thanks.

You need to click the 3D button in the Emitter tab.
