Although Jupiter is spinning like a whirrlygig. Might want to slow it down a bit. Also it's a bit hard to get a feel for a spatial sense of the planets; if you pulled back a bit to show the orbits, that would look good. __________________ -stwert Website - Blog - YouTube - Vimeo - Facebook - Twitter -->How to Effectively Ask Questions on Forums<--

I started with a ratio where earths rotation 1 day= 1sec. =24 frames. Even with this ratio i was running into millions of frames for neptunes revolution around the sun. So gave up the idea and started making it with approx.values. T The wobbly movement of jupiter is bcoz the jupiter's inclination axis is 3 degrees. Was working perfect before but accidentally i must have freezed the transformations changing the local axes to world axes. I realised it after i rendered the complete thing. Thought i would get away with it and no one will notice it. You got me there. http://www.windows2universe.org/our_...ets_table.html http://www.sciencenetlinks.com/inter...lanetSize.html @Dave: I have used a point light inside the sun and played with the translucence values of the sun material. There is no other source of light other than the sun. cheers Mahesh
