Another question about Nebulae: will some nebulae have Wolf-Rayet stars at the center? Like Eta Carinae?

NathanKerbonaut wrote:Source of the post He says "used for procedural ones" just before those pics. If they were those real nebulae it'd make more sense to separate them from the procedural ones and and tell us "and here are some real nebulae that are now raymarched," but he didn't do that.
NathanKerbonaut wrote:Source of the post Here's some examples in this article I found. Nebulae like the Mystic Mountain, Monkey Head, and the Coalsack are less like spheres or cones and more like big, smudgy smears. These are the kinds of nebulae I think will be the hardest to recreate with raymarching because they have no discernible pattern or shape to them. Recreating them would be like trial and error.

They are made with certain models like planetary or dusty ones and then randomized procedurally, but Im aware that the omega nebula uses ray-marching also. Forgive me if you've already found your answer to this I just wanted to reply, it was bugging me for a while lol
