I produced this Time Lapse video to show my compositing workflow in After Effects. I used Element 3D which is a third party plugin and Adobe After Effects to create the Space including Planets, Meteors and stars as well. After that I composited them together to create a simple 10 seconds video, a flyby in space and that too without a Space suit.
The main aim behind creating this video was to show the power of a compositing software, the possibilities and the realistic results.
It took me almost an hour create the Space. I managed the Time Lapse just by using the Time Stretch feature which is available inside of After Effects. It allows you to speed up or slow down things using a percentage value.
The Lens flare is generated using Optical Flares package. I converted it into a 3D flare so that it aligns with the light source perfectly and stays there when the camera moves in the Space.
