Shadertoy Solar System

All the planets including Ceres and Pluto

See the Solar System here:

Building upon the idea of “Spherifying” UVs I thought that creating a Solar System would be a great application of that technique. Spherify UVs can be seen in this Shadertoy:

The planets are basically fake spheres and their orbit speeds are fairly accurate but the rest of the parameters are not.

While making this, I learned how to create multiple render passes and composite them to create the final image.

Shadertoy is a website where you can code shaders and share them with members of the community. I use this not only as a tool to create art, but also to prototype rendering functions for use in realtime vfx for games.
