Hi!! This is an awesome plugin, I've been using it for a while now. I recently updated my Ae to 2020 and the ORBs i had from older proyects doesn't work anymore, they appear empty. Any help please? thanks!

VC_ORB seems to no longer work with AE on Catalina. Dragging the plugin onto the composition shows a circle with a line through it.. meaning its an illegal move!

Hello guys,
I've a question, in the video shows (minute 13:59) that the 'earth cloud' should be used with the effect 'Extract', but when I search for it the program show me only 'EXtractoR' (it is in the section '3D channel')....
So please if you can help me!


thanks.

Hi Guys! Could anyone help me understand something. I'm new in the AE and I tried to put something on the orbit of that orb. Took a 3d model and I had two problems.
1. comp I made before with Element 3d of my object that was now pasted into orb timeline don't want to behave like 3d object...and doesn't have access to Element settings from the orb timeline.
2. When I decided to create the object again but now directly on the orb timeline it is 3d but the problem is I cannot make it orbiting the orb using null. It rotates around itself instead orbiting the orb. What's even more interesting is when I want to rotate just the camera I am having issues with visibility of the object behind the orb. When it's over orb in timeline it does'n hide and when I put it under it's just a shadow when passing the orb. Anybody tried it or maybe I was expected to much from this pluginn?

Aside from not being able to reply to comments on this page...

Glow only seems to work internally, not externally. Has anyone figured out why this happens? I've been trying to sort it for hours now. Is he using a different glow effect or what??

Hey Video Copilot Team, First, wishing everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving in 2020. I am enjoying your VC Orb plug-in for creating an Ultra Earth in 3D but after completing the tutorial, I am left with a seem on the Earth orb. What is the solution to fix this. I have played around with the maps and even the UV offsets but no success. Please if you could give some direction.
Thanks and Happy Holidays!
