The Earth

This was done purely in After Effects. I always use Maya for 3D but decided to see how After Effects handles 3D when they first made this feature available.

The Earth's maps were courtesy of NASA's website. The stars were built in CC Particle World plug-in. The solar flair was made with Optical Flair effect/plug-in. I regret making the sun so big.

Total editing time: 1.5 hours.
