Andrew its been a decade since I was watched your ''advanced car hit''. Maybe you wanna hit Sam Loya again with an asteroid?

This is amazing. You continue to be a bountiful source of inspiration, knowledge, and skill Andrew :)

Any chance you'd be willing to post the project file for the trailer? I noticed some other techniques I was curious how you pulled off; like more bits of atmosphere and galaxy clouds. Was it Trapcode Particular, Fractal Noise, stock imagery, all of the above?

Thanks!

For those who having problem of disappearing the globe after select the planet_4k on diffuse and using nVIDIA -FORCE graphics card, just go to the below link and update the appropriate driver...! https://www.nvidia.in/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-in

Cheers...:)

I think that's a little bug. The drivers are also up to date with me! (411.70 WhQL/DX11)
(After Effects CS6 11.0.4.2) Plugin VC Orb1.02

"Bump Map Intensity" is at 0.60

Would be really nice if someone could answer me. Thank you.

Please take a look at the anim on Flickr. Thanks Andrew! I can also send you the * .aep. (549kb without textures)

Would someone like to test it? That would be great of you.

Mario.

Same problem even after the reinstall the NVidia GEFORCE driver.
with the window 7 , 64 bit
8 GB RAm
Intel core i5-5250U, CPU @ 1.6Ghz
Intel (R) HD Graphic 6000
NVIDIA Geforce 920M.

Anybody can you please let me know if this is enough for this plugin or have to upgrade?

Thanks

Here you can already see the problem with the simple animation.

I would be happy if there was a solution to that. Many Thanks.

Thanks for the plug in. That's really good!
The whole thing runs on a GTX960 (4GB) under CS6 on WIN7 Prof.
So far so good. Of course it takes while rendering but the plug-in is fun.

I have only one strange phenomenon. If I go through the exact tutorial, then the maps in the animation flicker after the calculation.
Whether those are the clouds that I have set as Andrew. I do not understand why that happens. In the video at 26:45 is suddenly another Adjust layer 5 available. What I do not understand at all is, if I press with the camera symbol (key C) I can turn various things. But what does not work that the axis of the earth turns? What am I doing wrong here? It's just a trifle, but I can not believe that only the earth turns as an object .. I would be very happy if someone could give me a tip. Many Thanks.

greeting
Mario.

can anyone share some insight in how to have something like an arching airline route from one point to another? I've tried putting 3d objects and lines in a comp and using that as a map, but it gets flattened on the orb.... do you know of a way?
