This tutorial was incredible--I've been searching for a good teacher for almost a month and I don't think any one was as concise and so well-versed as you! Thank you very much.

Hey Andrew, love your tutorials and they help me a great deal as a beginner in AE.

I'm using AE CC at the moment and I have the issue of the globe looking in low quality even though my precomp img is at 16k. Probably due to the fact I'm using suretarget2 and rotated my globe to about 2/3 of the screen size (1080).

Any idea how i may fix this?
Any help would be appreciated!

How did you do the sun/eclipse effect? Better yet, can you just do a tutorial on making the sun rise behind the planet?

TUTORIAL NOTES:
NOTE: The only reason it says South Africa, is because I had to record this tutorial twice. And because I'm not that good at geology.
