Nebula Generation (aka The Screensaver)

I kind of got addicted to generating images for this video.  I just like watching the computer draw them.  In the end, I decided to focus more on the drawing than the finished product.  All the math and drawing was done with GFA BASIC 32.  All the video editing was done with FFmpeg (and YouTube does not like that based on how long it's taking to process) but the resulting upload was only 500 MB for a 1 hour video which beats the 4 GB file my usual video editor created.  I may need to work on adjusting the settings.

I was thinking of making this a "real" screen saver, but it loses a little something when it takes 2-3 minutes to create an image instead of the 30 seconds I've edited it down to here.
