Makin’ Earth - storms, labels and auroras

COW Blogs : Graham Quince's Blog : Makin’ Earth - storms, labels and auroras
Here are three separate tutorials for adding extras to a 3D Earth using Video Copilot’s Orb. There’s no point in a tutorial in recreating Earth, as Andrew Kramer has already made an excellent tutorial covering that (which is also included below), so instead, I’ve focused on adding some extras:

Adding a hurricane:

Adding 3D labels based on geographic coordinates:

Adding an Aurora using CC Particle World:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Expressions:
L=thisComp.layer("Position NULL");
L.toWorld(L.anchorPoint);

CC Particle World Producers:
x=thisComp.layer("Particles NULL").transform.position[0]-thisComp.width/2;
x/thisComp.width;

y=thisComp.layer("Particles NULL").transform.position[1]-thisComp.height/2;
y/thisComp.width;

z=thisComp.layer("Particles NULL").transform.position[2];
z/thisComp.width;

Here you'll find a bunch of tutorials for using After Effects (mainly). I have a YouTube channel, called ShiveringCactus (long story - not funny anymore) where I post the videos.
