Question ST:Into Darkness - VC Element3D

Hey guys,

I recently saw the new Video Copilot Breakdown of the End Titles of Star Trek - Into Darkness.

Here is the Link:

At 5.32 MIN in this Video, you see a really Clever idea.
He made a 3D Model of a kind of Flat Mountain structure, and placed on this a Material that is looking like Space Nebula.

So he imported this one into AE - Element3D, and it looks really awesome, cause you have a kind of Depth when moving the Camera.

So how he have done it?
I think he have put this 3D Object / Nebula behind a planet layer, and set the Display mode to ADD. When i do that, you see the nice Nebula, without the Black Color, and have the 3D Structure.

My Question is: You can't set seperate Objects in Element3D to ADD or Multiply or what ever. So i kinda want to know how have he set this up. When you set the Whole layer to Add, the planet also disappears a bit. IMO its just possible to have 2 element Layers. Am I right?

Whats also interesting: How have he made this seperate colors, like the Blue parts of the Planet, glowing, shining etc.
Just 2 Models randomly moved inside itself?
