Once I get to the VC page, where do I find the orb Plug-in for download?

For those who are having trouble with the textures either not appearing on the orb, After Effects crashing, or the light not working I would advise using lower res versions of the 6K textures. I was having the same exact same issues until I converted the images into lower resolutions. Everything worked perfectly after that.

Has anyone solved the light/dark issue when working in linear colourpace? The light falloff looks very harsh and I can't seem to fix it.

Trying to follow the video but when I put my preview on full it looks like there's no textures applied at all it shows just a plain orb. Not sure if the because the textures are just too large for my system to handle or what. Any thoughts??

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"

Can someone point me in the direction of how to create the planet texture maps for the orb plugin?
