Planet Skimming with PD Pro Howler

This animation was done with PD Pro Howler and shows off some of its built-in effects.  Using PD Pro's built in 3D engine, I was able to animate a height map so as to create the illusion of flying over a landscape.   Some stars and a planet were then added using the swap buffer (shades of DPaint on the Amiga), and then some animated lens flares were added on top of that.  Finally, a zoom effect was added to the entire animation to give it more of a sense of forward motion.
