Can anybody help me out???
I'm new to Max and am creating a space scene. I have managed to draw all
the planets and map them individually with no problems. I have created the
space backdrop using the noise function. What I now hope to do is have a
camera simulating a spaceships front view and provide some animation.
However this is where I come unstuck. I want to have the planets so that
when the animation is running the first planet comes into view at a distance
and then grows as the ship gets nearer (as it would in real life). As the
ship passes the first planet the next one comes into view in the distance
and grows as the ship gets nearer and so on. I hope to do this for each of
the planets before the ship crashes into the sun with a mass explosion
effect. How can I do this???? Is it possible????
Its the placing of the planets on the scene that is one of the problems for
me. To be able to place them far enough apart on the scene so that they
come into view is proving a challenge.
Can anybody please help me with this problem. I would be eternally grateful
for some wisdom.
