Animate a 3D star field in Photoshop: Pixel Playground

Create an animated starfield in Photoshop

Explore Pixel Playground at lynda.com.

This week, Bert’s lesson is out of this world! In this interstellar episode of Pixel Playground, we’ll create an animated star field in Adobe Photoshop.

Starting off with a blank canvas, he quickly shows us how to create a brush for painting a star field. After painting in a few layers of various sizes, he takes each of these layers and converts them into 3D layers so he can manipulate their positions. Finally, Bert creates a few keyframes in the animation panel to complete the animated effect.
