Having trouble with the Atmosphere portion of the tutorial I have tried going through step by step multiple times with the same result. the blue dose not look like a radial map but a liner. What can I do to fix this issue

Unfortunately as soon as I load the images into the maps.. even scaled down.. it just turns black.

Great tutorial except I kept getting lost with all the tangents and nothing I ever do turns out the way you do them. With all the distractions and rapidly going through it I get frustrated and quit. Do you have any tutorials where you slow down?

Great tutorial and even greater plug-in! Thanks!

The only thing I did differently to test it out was instead of attaching the star map to the diffuse layer with "unlit only", I attached it to the illumination layer and illuminated it with white light. I was able to get pretty realistic-looking stars without the blurriness that comes with the texture.

been watching your tutorials for over 10 years - always watch them till the end .. great work, kind of wanted to see you replicate univeral though , that text rotation would of been interesting to see how you do .. im sure you already have a vid on that though - thanks for the knowledge

I'm getting an issue with Orb VC. It says After Effects Error invalid filter (25:3). Does this mean this isn't compatible with AE 2019? Thanks!

I'm following the tutorial step by step, but when I zoom into the composition, all of the Earth layers are very pixelated. It looks nothing like your tutorial.

I'd love to fix this, but I don't know how. I am using SLI Nvidia Geforce Titan X cards. The images look great in other programs, but once they're applied to Orb, they become pixelated and unusable.

Any suggestions?
