I have a shot that I believe will be highly difficult and will need help to create.
A giant space ship (550 m long), heavily damaged, will drift into the atmosphere of a gas giant, accellerating due to the giants gravity. It will then spurt its engines a bit and change course during its fall, crashing onto a huge platform inside the giants atmosphere (the platform's diameter could hold maybe 50 copies of the ships lengthwise). This is all ONE shot, which means the ability to see the gas giant as a sphere of clouds, then pushing into the atmosphere and being able to see INTO the giant. I expect that fluid effects are the way to go, but I have scale issues: It seems I can either have a zoomed-out pleasing giant or an in-the-atmosphere pleasing giant, but not both. Tips or ideas?
