I love this tutorial but I'm having a couple of problems and would appreciate any help.

I went for the full star map instead of just the crest but the torch layer is moving up instead of out from the center. I want it to radiate out. Any tips?

The other is that I wanted to make the BG layer a real image from astronomers but the adjustment layers affect the color of the background and I want to isolate the BG Real layer from any adjustments.

This is for a design project in a astrophysics course and I'd love any suggestions.

I hate you! :D
I didn't know about the orientation part for CC Sphere of this video and I needed it two weeks ago and I realized it manually with a lot of expression between sequences :D
Well, I'm proud about myself but this one is really easier to do. :(
Thanks a lot as usual.

Marco.
