Hubble Scripts - Michael Bourne
Ever since I played with stars and moons with the . I wanted to take it further, move into deep space. I deliberately didn't look at other scripts for space, just to see where it went. It's been a while, I hit a few snags on the way. Rick Sidwell, and Whittaker Courtney helped out with a way to make the planets and moons not look transparent. Eventually I got my head around what they were saying, and the result is here.
Really, I wanted something that would create those cool space wallpapers you see on the internet, but have it so that endless combinations could be had by running a script. With that in mind please make sure you render at widescreen for best effect. Something like 1920x1080 or 1200x630 etc. There's an optional separate flame pack you can load into JWildfire so you can see samples created.
I could've spent a lot longer still on these scripts, but I need to move on to other scripts (mainly re-doing the Heavens scripts).
I'd also like to thank Jesus Sosa for his help with gradients on multiple layers and removing the preview box for layers (if it doesn't disappear, run the script again). I couldn't get my head around the maths for making sure planets don't overlap, so if they do, move them (with the linears) or just re-run the script.
If you use them, it would be nice to see what you've created, and it would be nice also to let people know about them too so they can try them for themselves. It's also nice to see my name as a credit, but I don't insist on it at all, maybe just a link here to where you got them.
