Physical laws are used wherever possible to render objects for the most authentic simulation. Our starfield's realism is second to none.
Physical modeling of the atmosphere in 3D provides views from any perspective. See beautiful sunsets, sunrises, and other effects. Adjust light pollution to your precise needs.
Explore extremely detailed topography and surface imagery on major bodies. Load your own geographic layers from images or network sources, or simply purchase our add-on drives for fast local use—ideal even for portables!
Zoom in anywhere on the sky to see telescopic imagery from the Digitized Sky Survey. Show different wavelengths and surveys.
Now you can fly to nearby stars or even outside our galaxy. Illustrate spatially how our constellations are Earth-centric. Travel to any of more than two million 3D stars, all exhibiting proper motion.
Flying around or through this exclusive volumetric simulation of our own galaxy is awe inspiring. Developed collaboratively by Digitalis and an international team of astrophysicists.
Fly to, around, and through a few of the most interesting nebulae visible from Earth.
Take a time-lapse exposure to visualize celestial motions and phasing over time. Even better, grids and labels do not accumulate and ruin your exposure.
In addition to realistic ray-traced shadows of moons and rings, a volumetric shadow visualization feature is also included.
Automate any part of your shows with this simple, yet powerful scripting language. Now enhanced with features like text placement, keyframe recording, and completely updated documentation. Almost 100% backward compatible with your existing scripts for ease of migration.
