NASA Moon Orbiter

Kyle Appelgate, NASA


The high resolution capture of a perfect orbit around the moon by NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter gave me an opportunity to try something I'd been thinking about for a while: creating a multi-view 3D scene by rendering different frames of video based on the view being rendered. The result mostly indistinguishable from rendered 3D geometry, but the moon in this scene is actually a video being projected onto a flat surface with some trickery added to the mix.
