Most movie intros/company logos are made with a 3D program... It looks like you're asking if there is a tutorial to make an into with 3D?

Here's my advice- use a 3D program like Blender, 3DS Max, Maya, Cinema 4D.

I think he means like using google earth so you can see outta space.
Use hypercam to record you zooming down into earth then add it into your editing programme, Get ride of the "Unregistered Hypercam" using Masking or Garbage key then add a zoom in overlay and abit of compositing.

That should do the job

Contrary to popular belief - 3D Space is *not* something restricted solely to 3D software. A lot of high end compositing applications also have 3D space. Namely; Shake, Nuke, Fusion, Combustion, After Effects.

To answer the original posters question - Yes I have. Was there something else you needed to know?

I am new to vision lab and have just begun to read your tutorials in hopes of preparing a short test project. And stumbled onto this thread. If you want to learn a 3D software package and like me are not rich. Go here. http://www.caligari.com/

This is great software and now everything I paid big bucks for is free. You can download and learn from these folks combined with a package like Vision lab the possibilities are limitless.

The reason I purchased Vision Lab is to enhance my 3D software ( True Space ) I have used it for a few years along with Photoshop and quite a large array of graphic editing software. I hope this helps everyone with similar goals.

Also since this is my first post I would like to thank these FX home folks for the great opportunity to learn buy purchasing this software. Your tutorials/knowledge base and support forums make this an invaluable product. I drive an 18 wheeler many hours a day and school is just not an option for me I hope to learn much here.
