The No Man's Sky website is just using a video as their background. Unless I miss something, I think they don't use actual 3D graphics and animations on their website unfortunately.

Good point, just that the video background is in the hero section not other parts of the website which extensively use 3D graphics.

I'm having a really hard time to find those 3D graphics haha.
The background on the homepage is just a video, not something created with the likes of WebGL or anything like that. Would've been cool if it did.
