Generates an image of a diffuse spiral galaxy. Works best with manual settings. When using random variations be sure to disable random size in the variation options. Disable stars for faster rendering.Note: There is an option in the filter structure that gives the galaxy a perspective, angled view but this part has been disabled because the map script used for this would crash Filter Forge on some users. If you want to enable it you can do so by connecting the structure part near the "Perspective" control back into the structure chain.
