The second video loads a star database and animates the stars introducing participants to the elemental operators connected to point clouds and ideas on using TOPs to animate the data. The final and third video looks at techniques of saving a SOP as a point cloud with extra attributes as additional layers and looks at the creation of a purely TOP based particle system with the point cloud as an emitter.
