3D nebula rendered in Blender using E-Cycles. I did some moderate post-processing for the still image, such as adding more stars and adding some spot details to cover up some low quality areas and areas with a weird banding pattern.

Edit: redid the video at 30 fps and smoothed things out more.

Remade the original animation, its now longer and higher quality than before. Still struggling with the banding problem!

My first ever attempt at doing anything animated. Took about 34 hours of rendering. I wish I knew how to deal with the flickering. Thanks Kai Engel for the music.
