The idea behind the animation for When Darkness Turns to Light, follows a spacecraft entering a new star system whose presence lights up the planets and other galactic bodies it comes in to contact with.
This was the first time Octane was used on a lengthy animation/motion graphics piece so there was a lot to learn. The soundtrack triggering the Strobe lighting effects coupled with the high particle count pushed the limit of my current hardware.
