Rendering a star cloth.

Recommended Posts

And what would a "star cloth" be? A piece of cloth in the shape of a star? Cloth with stars printed on it? I'm sorry, but as a Belgian, I miss the vocabulary to understand this smile.gif

Being a from a theatre background myself I think Sian means one of the backdrops used in threatre to simulate a starry night.

A Belgian who doesn't work in the theatre industry. :-)

A cloth backdrop with a multitude of small lights that mimic a starry night.

You could try a symbol made of a multitue of point lights set to "Lit Fog" but the render times might be grim.

You could try a "double" flat: front one black with small holes clipped through it placed just in front of a white one with a texture set to Constant reflectivity.

might work OK.

Or create a simple Black texture square with the "random" holes set to transparency. Apply the texture to the 3d cloth surface then back lite the sucker.

Or create an ImageProp of the actual sky at the correct Lat/Long
