Makin' Starfields: Create presets for 2D, 360 and 3D stars

Makin' Starfields: Create presets for 2D, 360 and 3D stars

In this tutorial, I take a look at generating stars in Adobe After Effects. We start with a simple 2D starfield, but then use Fractal Noise to add atmospheric distortion (twinkling) and then I show how to save this effect as a preset, so it becomes really easy to reuse. Next, I take a look at wrapping those 2D stars around the inside of a Sphere to create a 360 starfield.
