Gas Giant

This script is nother in a series of planet makers. This one makes a banded gas giant. There can be anywhere from one to 20 bands in the planet. Each band is an equal height, and has Plasma noise rendered in it. Each layer is then motion blurred. The result is then mapped onto a sphere, and gaussian blurred to make the edges nice and fuzzy.

Planetary Ring System - Updated for Gimp 2.6

This script makes a ring system that you can add to a picture of a planet, and was adapted from a Photoshop script. This script is updated for GIMP v2.6
The ring system can be any size from 300x300 to 3000x3000, and can be tilted to any angle. The whirl-and-pinch portion of the script is time consuming, but using at least 8 iterations make the rings look very nice. The thickness of the rings can be controlled using the inner and outer ring ratio values in the script. The closer these two values are together, the narrower the ring.

Make Your Own Planet - Script of MarvinX's Tutorial - Updated for Gimp 2.6

This script automates many of the steps in MarvinX's fantastic "Make a Planet" tutorial, with a couple of added features. There is an atmospheric haze around the planet, and there are stars on the background layer. This script does not do the IWarp step. I leave that to the individual user to make wherever they want.. Everything else is in here.

Planet Render
