I wasn't going to post this but whatever...
This is the scene i abandoned.https://vimeo.com/108229063
It wasn't finished. I had an explosion ready to comp on the far other side too for example.
The moon and the landscape is Terragen here.The smoke Lightwave.
These 3 parts were rendered separately.
The moon that flybys is a scene in that the moon was still and the camera moved.
I like the feel of the camera move but not enough to use it.
I am not so keen on the camera move and the look of the landscape in the
new version (last image above) but the scene works a little better then this one.
