Finally got that complicated zooming scene done after one false start where the meteoroids were moving at an unimpressive speed--had to draw more of them and scale them faster. Then I layers multiple frames over each other for a sort of image trails effect to smooth things out. The result:|
Now, you could make a sorta interesting Star Warsesque space warp effect from that if you wanted to
(you'll need Firefox or something to see this at the correct speed; IE can't display animated gifs fast enough)
but of course there's no such thing as warp speed for space ships as far as we know, so that would just be silly, nevermind what else I posted on deviantART.
Kind of makes you wonder how people got to the vicinity of A* though, seeing as how it's 30,000 light years away from Earth. Hm...
Say, it's the weekend now. Have a good one!
