Is the texture maps copyright free to use in making planets to use in your own projects like feature films, shorts, and trailers? Or do you need permission to do so?

looks similar to NASA's progression over the years. Hmmm...

I loaded in the textures but they do not look sharp like in the video.. Resolution is on full but it doesn´t look right.

Make sure you have the play/paused resolution on full instead of: "1/2 . 1/4 . 1/8"

When i apply VC orbs to my solid, nothing appears.
I restart After Effects, changed GPU settings, apply again VC orbs to a solid it works.
Creating a light, everything disappears.
Trying to save, and my AEX is crashing.

Literally everybody here and on Youtube complain about this plugin which doesn't work and we don't have any answers from you Andrew. Please don't sell magic if you are not sure it's working well. Or just working.

Hello,
Great plugin!!!
With using your optical flares...how can you get a sunrise right on the edge of the planet? I'm finding the foreground switch is cutting off the 'sun' too early.
Thanks for any ideas.
