Today we’ll learn how to create a planet in 3d, in this tutorial we’ll create Jupiter in 3D, with a photo-realistic approach of this planet using Cinema 4D and Corona Renderer. Tutorial shared by Blauw Films (Leonardo Verkoelen).
The techniques involve using the volume material and the volumetric scattering settings inside the renderer. In your renderer, you should be able to replicate the effect following similar techniques.
