This video shows an animation I made for my Digital 3D Foundations class, using the student version of Maya 2014. (It was quicker to use Hypercam than say, force my computer to render each frame). The Solar System model contains all the planets plus Pluto, a minimum of three moons for planets that have more than two, and each planet sits on its correct axial tilt. For my convenience, each planet rotates on its axis at 24 frames per second, although each rotation around the sun is proportional to the rotation of the actual planets in our solar system. So, Earth’s year is 24 frames per second, Mercury’s is 4, Venus’s is 14, Mars’ is 48 etc etc etc. Pluto’s is 5,986 if I remember right.
