Few things are as majestic as a galaxy spiraling amongst the stars. You might think that recreating such grader would require fancy plugins for After Effects. That doesn’t have to be the case. After Effects artist Caleb Ward can show you how go without.

One time, Caleb created a scene in the same theme, showing how you can create a nebula effect in Ae, by simply using built in tools. As an extension to that, Caleb shows how you can create a swirling, spiraling galaxy scene in After Effects. Once again, no 3rd party plugins are required. You can do plenty with turbulent and fractal noise in computer graphics, not mentioning a twirl or two.
