This week, Bert’s lesson is out of this world! In this interstellar episode of Pixel Playground, we’ll create an animated star field in Adobe Photoshop.

Starting off with a blank canvas, he quickly shows us how to create a brush for painting a star field. After painting in a few layers of various sizes, he takes each of these layers and converts them into 3D layers so he can manipulate their positions. Finally, Bert creates a few keyframes in the animation panel to complete the animated effect.
