This is a quick image I made the other day. I posted it over at LWG3d.com, and I thought I might as well post it here too. Let me know what you all think.

Looks awesome. I like it.

Wanna give a short explanation of what exactly we're looking at(how it was done)?

Sure thing, and thanks. It's kind of a view of from a ship heading into a star with plasma fields around it at top speed. It was really fast to make. I use three lights. One was a Vlight with a couple of textures added to it, and the other two were just lens flares. One of the lens flares I did in a second pass and composited it in latter. I probably should have added stars to give it that space look, but it was just a fast image that I did in between projects.

BTW if any of you guys want the vlight preset let me know and I'll send it to you.

That's very cool. I wouldn't mind having the preset as I'd like to have a play around.

I'm thinking this may also make a nice animated background on video or something....

Good work!

Well here you go.:) Let me know if you make something out of it.

Thanks for sharing the preset, I have been inspired to mess with such things myself, (including ones based on that). I have dumped the results, complete with a zip of a dozen preset files, into a new thread at:

I love messing with vlights, even more fun animating, check the Lux link below for some of my presets.
