Space is every VFX artist’s dream!
Planets, nebula, galaxies, stars, black holes and thousands of other interstellar features can be built together into a spectacular colorful mess.
In cinema, there are no rules to what our galactic scenery can look like. We can experience the dark and dangerous feel of Interstellar, or the vivid and lively action packed sets from Guardians of the Galaxy.
If you’re new here, ProductionCrate is a library of thousands of visual effects, sound effects, graphics and other creative resources – all available for you to download to save time and money! Here you can access a whole bundle of space related effects to build your incredible VFX projects.
One of our favorite collections is the huge array of nebula assets. These come as high resolution (4000×4000) graphics that you can composite into your space backgrounds. This can be done in most compositing software, such as After Effects, Hitfilm or Nuke. You may even drop several of them into your 3D software to create 3D nebulae instantly!
If you need to get started, check out our basic star texture background. This will be the perfect canvas for you to start building out your scene.
We’ll love to see what you create with these space VFX assets. You can check out a full tutorial which will breakdown the pipeline behind CGI a space scene.
