Now, back to LightWave. Here’s another experimentation using particles with hypervoxels attached to the rock model. Using Viewport Preview Renderer (VPR) is an easiest way to make changes on your subject in real-time. I use Mac Mini (mid 2010 model).

Credits for the 3D model goes to:
1. Earth model: Dean A. Scott
2. Asteroid model: Frogpony

Sample clips from the animation:

Update: Feb. 16, 2016, added another particle test animation.
