All movies are published before in this blog. There has been very few viewers for them though, so I think reposting might be a good idea.

All Moon movies are made by re-projecting 2D-Moon image to a sphere. After that, the observation location can be freely selected, as long the area of interest stay on the visible area. I like this technique a lot, since the original image stays unprocessed!
Experimental Moon movies:
(There is a movie of Andromeda galaxy as well)
A movie about principle of making Moon movies from 2D-material:
Moon movie experiments:

The animation is made by splitting the original 2D-image to a layers by the image content. Layers are then taken to a 3D-modeling software, "TrueSpace", and projected to a 3D-surfaces and animated to a movie file.
Stars are placed to Z-axel by apparent brightness , brighter ones are closer.
