First render using Ian Regan's fantastic Voyager 2 sequence but repeating frames to slow down motion of Jupiter combined with Axel Mellingers 8000 photo gigapixel all-sky Milky Way. Careful math creates the illusion of rotation - similar to Matrix "bullet-time" but much more subtle. Star positions are very approximate right now.

In Saturn’s Rings is a ground-breaking film for IMAX® and Giant Screen Theaters and Fulldome Planetariums created from over one million real photographs and assembled in one man’s basement studio. Using a unique photoanimation technique, the film will take audiences on a journey through the Solar System and beyond, employing images from dozens of space missions, including Cassini-Huygens, Hubble, Apollo, Voyager 1/2 and many more; and give audiences the feeling they’re flying through space without the use of computer generated models or imagery.
