t's a shame, I have a nvidia quadro 2000 board and it does not appear as a compact video card. I think it is an excellent plug in VC ORB but it requires very expensive plates and should be more economical.
Time gets slow when u wait for some things .
please hurry up .

Great plugin. Using for a project right now. Rotation X and Rotation Z are the same rotation of the orb though so would love to be able to have those separated in an update of the plugin so I can choose to rotate over the top of the orb as well.

When I first apply the Planet_4K.jpg texture to the Diffuse Layer, the orb just disappears. I know I must be doing something wrong, but I followed the tutorial exactly. Could I have some default setting wrong?

    No, it does not. Under render settings it just accepts Motion Blur.
    However DoF would be great, like, in a paid version of the plugin or smth.

    It is likely a GPU issue. Try updating your graphics card driver. We are working on a troubleshooting guide!

Hi everyone, to those clock watching and freaking out leaving crappy comment about "why isn't it here" or "woe is me, my free plugin isn't here" or "i'm disappointed in VCP" crap... don't, just don't please. Have a little gratitude. If it arrives today great, if it doesn't the world will keep spinning. It's only 1:10pm in California, so relax already.

Amazing. We still have people complaining about the Orb plug-in being released today. It comes when it comes out. Geez.
2 years ago
You guys shouldn't be complaining. They're about to relate a great plugin for free that will simplify our lives as creatives. If you've ever had to create a planetary system (or even just a planet with atmosphere) in AE or Photoshop, you know this will be a massive time-saver.

Deep breaths.

AND probably working on "Greedo - A Star Wars Story".

    Greedo: A Star Wars Story! That could totally work. I'm seeing a film noir re: a 2 bit gangster who's always trying but never catches a break. A real late 40s crime drama. After years of trying, Greedo's finally makin' it. He's got some money coming in. He got his girl back and, baby, after this one job, we're getting off this dusty rock and we're gonna be big.
    Last shot is him walking into the cantina.

This is looking really wonderful. I had no idea what was going to happen in my future, but now I know!
Probably many a new planet, glowing, shiny, and yet unimaginable orbs. Thank you so much for your generosity!
Really looking forward how to combine it with E3D setups. And wonderful how patiently you are dealing with all the ORB-obsessed people out here.
On a different note: It's Semptember 19th already. ... ;) Thank you for you great community work and amazing freebies!

I spent last week grabbing high res NASA images and making some combo flares and light leaks in order to do what I bet this plugin will mostly do in minutes.

So fantastic. Perhaps this will let me flex my creativity a bit more without having all the masks and junk I set up to get these frames to look just right. Can't wait!

I'm assuming 9/18 Midnight Pacific, right? ;-)
