Starfield in Vegas

Just did a tutorial about this, but I was surprised how well it turned out. Of course, there's always additional adjustments that can be made, but I thought this looked pretty good. I have tried doing this in other programs, even some 3D programs, and they didn't turn out as well as this. I'm convinced that Vegas is one of the most under-rated video programs of all time. I uploaded this photo so anyone who's interested can take a closer look.

Yes, I once made this one:

The base was different, I used an existing starfield graphic because it was only about how to make the stars twinkle in Vegas Pro. For those interesed, here is the demo project. (should work from VP13 up).

And here is the link to karma17's tutorial.

Thanks to both of you ! This is timely because I am actually working on a project where I need galaxies and twinkling stars. And that makes me discover new ways to do it. Also, by changing the photo in Marco's demo and playing with the settings, I can now get glittering galaxy effects really interesting. It's great to be able to do this only with Vegas resources.

I used to make starfields using Salt on a black card. It was very effective.

One of my old intros used the starry night and tweaked and rotated it with the opacity down and had the ultra deep field rotating behind that. Looks way bad now because youtube reduces the resolution of videos that dont perform at a certain amount of time.
