Created this for use at a celebration of one man's missionary travels. Each country contained a video clip representing it (taken out for privacy concerns). I had 2K flattened images of the earth during the day and night, as well as of just the clouds. I had the clouds rotate faster than the Earth to add some depth. Text created with Element 3D. Earth created using CC Sphere, as this suited my needs when I cut out the portions of the countries on the Earth 2K image. As the Earth spins the lights on the dark side slowly fade off as they come around towards the sun. Flare created with Optical Flares.
