3D Earth Scene

 

I built a 3D earth with real lights, textures, space, and movement. It took 2hours of work and 1hour to render a 10second clip. I am very happy with the result though. This was entirely created in After Effects except for the lens flare which was video copilot's optical flares.  

 

This workflow was made possible by Videocopilot's Orb plugin.
