In this video I'm gonna make similar planet from scratch and I'll show a few technics which I used for Trapcode Planet. I know, final result need better color correction and settings need much more tweaks, but I'll hope you'll get main idea.

'Gulp' is a short film created by Sumo Science at Aardman, depicting a fisherman going about his daily catch. Shot on location at Pendine Beach in South Wales, every frame of this stop-motion animation was shot using a Nokia N8, with its 12 megapixel camera and Carl Zeiss optics. The film has broken a world record for the 'largest stop-motion animation set', with the largest scene stretching over 11,000 square feet.
