Today Amy and I worked on our star project and focused primarily on shading the star's transitions between its phases. I know I have blogged about this like three times, but its a long process ha ha. There are many ideas being thrown around as to what features we should include in this star's simulation, including "should we include solar flares?", "should we use particle systems to envelop the star for a realistic look? (this would make the surface look as though it is moving and made from magma)", and many others. We have already put some good ideas into practice, but now we need to fine tune them.
