Hi all, Thanks for the tut Andrew. I'm having the same problem as some of the others here. As soon as I load the 4k Jpeg into the diffuse layer the orb disappears and I'm left with a Black screen. Please advise.

Andy, I love your plugins and your tutorials, they have helped me so much.
Quick question tho, I saw on your orb info page that you have a moon and other surfaces made. where can I download those maps? Thank you

The only problem I'm having (so far) is that changing the Shadow/Light option makes the lights disappear everywhere, not just on the side without shadows. Any ideas about that?

Also, on Mac, I've been able to figure out how holding Control and dragging quick switches between Unified Camera and Track Z, but how does he do so to Track XY?

Thank you for this amazing new plugin, without it i wouldn't be able to create such an amazing planet as i have done. All the settings really improves making planet and space scenes.

Great work Andy. You're one of the reasons I'm grateful I came in this generation.
For those talking about the light affecting one half, you need to attach the light to a null object and animate the null along the motion path. It was shown in the tutorial video but wasn't said. And shouldn't be cos we ought to be advanced students already.

God Bless Andrew Kramer

Great tut as usual! Is there any way we can get the cloud cover to hide the city lights? The cloud cover at the moment is only influencing the one half of the planet.
