Stars in Blender 2.7
Closed, ArchivedPublic

Description

I recently downloaded Blender 2.7 and started working on a project. to my surprise, I could not find the "Stars" panel in the world settings. This has always been the way for my to quickly create simple night skies. I cannot fathom why Blender would remove this feature and I hope you can direct me to a plugin or other manner in which I will be able to continue using this vital feature.

Stars were removed in 2.7x It was rather hackish implementation and it was quite tricky to use in more tricky scenes so it's removed. See http://wiki.blender.org/index.php/Dev:Ref/Release_Notes/2.70/More_Features#Render

For future references: this procedural texture could be used for recreating stars. Unfortunately, it is not so easy to use, but this approach is more flexible and can be applied in cycles too.
