Hi, I was wondering if there was such thing as well, it is footage that I want, or a way to make this kind of footage. I just need the earth to be revolving and the camera moving around it. Like google earth except in a movie mode for the start of a movie. Does anyone know where or how I can make this kind of effect.

I'm also going to have a space ship fly past. Any ideas on how to do this effect would be appreciated, and yes the movie has to be moving, not just a still image.

Thanks

You need a 3D rendering program rather than Effects Lab for this job I think.

Hi, do you know how to create primatives and render in 3ds max? I don't use the program but I have knowledge of 3d, and could easily create this for you. If you like, or take you through the steps in general.
