Why, thank you! The particle effect looks quite badly ballanced, if you look at it (they all look as equally oriented...). Other than that I like how the lighting came out here and played a little with contrast filters etc.
You meant that it looks so close to the original footage that it sounds weird when I declare it isn't. I got that And if you look at particles of the same emitter, for instance the dull ones crossed by the basestar's missiles, you can tell I didn't bother rebalancing their orientation and texture coordinates (as if them thousands of particles and the high-detailed galactica wasn't enough surplus render time)
