Hey, does anybody know of a program like terragen, but for space and planets? Preferably free-ware? Thanks.

I have a cool thing that makes quick time movies and pictures of space. You don't actually make the planets, they're just there. It's called galexy expolorer. It's not free though.

I would definately recoment blender for something like that. Just a warning though, it takes a long time to learn, even with tutorials. Also be aware that every time they release a version, the location of buttons almost always changes. But, I view these things as chalenges more than set backs. With blender, the following equation is pretty acurate.

Level of Skill with Blender X Ammount of Time spent = Quality of result.

The more you experement, the better you get.

I have been useing Vue 5. It's awsome and easy to use. Great presets and a auto Ecosystem preset. Look into it, it's worth it.

I have been reading some of the post like on backdrops and this one looking for planets. I found some planets when I did a search on this site for free.
Seems its a standalone program for free also.

They seem to have alot of free stuff here. I registered for free and then did a search on the free stuff. Note the keyword I am using is FREE.

I am not affiliated with it or anything like that. I just like it for the free downloads for nearly any kind of 3d program.

I hope you can find what your looking for I found some cool stuff on the free searchs.
