Free Earth Project for Element 3D

Here is a free Earth project with 4K maps to use with Element 3D. You can also use the maps with CC sphere to recreate the project without Element 3D, we even have a very old tutorial to show you how. Watch the Blue Planet.

To customize the Earth, you can open the Element 3D layer and turn down the illumination map to shut the lights off.

Download Project

NOTE: Please place the Earth folder inside “My_Models” folder

Real Earth-Zoom!

In our earth-zoom tutorial from 2007, I jokingly suggested one method of capturing aerial photography was to send a video camera into space with a weather baloon. Well, someone finally took one of my jokes too far and sent a real camera into space. Admittedly this project was just a coincidence but the fact that it is possible is quite cool and yet somehow frightening…

Hats off to those guys for the uplifting experiment.
