The first movie Gremo posted presents a very realistic sun, the brightness, the solar rays, the camera effects, they look really nice. Was this effect added in the movie or is this also an add-on?

Effects were added using premiere :D thanks for asking!

I'm guessing it was added in the movie. The lighting doesn't match the presumed location of the "sun" in either picture.

What do you mean? The lens effect was added above sun actual position :P

Using the techniques described here and here, and some improvisation, I was able to make this video:

Viewing it in higher resolutions might make it easier to spot the dynamic changes. :)

Good! 8) Hi, John: the displacements are due to huge heights only or there is an underlying 3D model roughly sketched for?

You don't need Fraps. Celestia has a built-in recorder that is much better and doesn't ever show the cursor. And it doesn't insert duplicate frames where Celestia's frame rate is different from the frame rate for the recording. :)

I've tried it before, and I need to say that it sucks badly

I don't get it. I have had some troubles with it, like some times, it changes colour on the video, and that is irritating me a lot

but capture pictures, no problem with that

Which "it" are you referring to? Celestia or some other video recording method?
What video codec are you specifying? It could be that the codec is buggy. Make sure that you've installed the most recent versions and that you've gotten them from a reputable supplier.

FWIW, I normally specify "Full Frames (Uncompressed)" and let the video editing software do the compression.

Then you do need to try the different codecs to see which ones have problems. They are what control the compression methods, and thus may be trashing the colors.

p.s.
I just now did some tests recording of the rotating Earth for 30 seconds at 24fps and 320x240, with uncompressed (155MB), "Intel IYUV" (80MB) and "Microsoft Video 1" (15MB). None showed any color shifts, although the output of the Microsoft codec showed compression artifacts (squares could be seen).

Lagging during recording is to be expected, especially at high resolutions, unless you're using a high-end CPU & GPU, with a codec that includes hardware video encoding support, and are writing to a high-performance hard drive which is empty or which has been thoroughly defragmented. The specific pauses seen during recording should not be apparent during playback, although playback will be affected by the same kinds of system performance issues.

I just now did a 5 second FHD recording (1920x1080x30fps). It was jerky and missing frames in both recording and playback at full resolution. However, after I ran it through Windows Live Movie Maker, the highly compressed output played smoothly and showed no dropouts. In other words, although the WMI file''s resolution was horrible, it showed that all of the frames had been recorded.

A few days ago, I had a dream about the opening sequence to an alternate version of the 2012 movie that follows a storyline that I'm planning for my Belle Hades planet. I re-enacted it in Celestia, then added a screenshot I made which I put through Gimp to better visualize how I saw it in the dream.

Oh! I did a video some time ago, and it's about the Pioneer 10 mission. I have videos 'bout the Pioneer 11 and Voyagers missions, but I just can't fine an appropriate song form them that isn't the same one that I used.
