I made this little test to try out photoshop and AE's 3D features. The Earth in this video is completely 3D inside After Effects, which is a nice change from the very common CC sphere effect which is really just flat. What really spices this clip up is the atmosphere. Without it, the earth would look horribly fake.
Please note that this was a low quality render: the textures used on the earth where low rez. That's why up close you can tell it's fake.
