Jumping to lightspeed is as easy as dusting crops with this effect, which generates a spray of streaking stars, complete with built-in animation and customization.
The overall animation is driven by the Progress property. At 0% the stars have not yet appeared, and at 100% they have completed their animation past camera.
The color Temperature can be adjusted and Variation can be added for a less uniform look.
The Number and Size of stars can be adjusted, while the Seed can be used to generate different renderings of the effect.
Star Blend determines how the star streaks interact with each other. Add blend tends to look best, with stars intensifying where they overlap.
Blend with source changes how the effect is blended with the host layer. When set to None, the stars will be rendered onto transparency, with the host layer no longer visible, which makes it easy to overlay them onto other layers. Alternatively On Top can be used to composite directly onto the host layer.
