were nearing the planet, forms they had never seen before.. Scouts were sent to have a closer look. But when they came near the first one, it started to build an energy field ....
Thanks for taking a peek :)
Barry Marshall's old and new metanode in action. Those strange objects are simple cylinders with Barry's upcoming new F3 metanode.

metanodes are a speciality of Vue used in the function editor where you create your materials. You can combine properties of a material you created and behavior of a material into one node and add a user interface to handle this in an easy mode. So for the metanode mentioned here, it comes as material where the basic material already is set to 100% transparency and you got 2 sliders to adjust a preloaded ecosystem of objects (which you can change to your liking). with this sliders you can adjust how far the objects are away from the base object and how near they are to each other. so by this you can easily create for instance bubbles rising, a debris flying around an object and you can give them a specific form where they rise by loading an image of your liking.
