Chapter 13. Sci-Fi Storm > Creating a Planet

Creating a Planet

The starring element of this project is a stormy planet revolving in space. There are a number of ways to create a convincing sphere in After Effects without any plug-ins, but those methods are pretty laborious. Instead, you'll use a Boris FX effect devoted to making spheres; it gives you more control over your sphere's attributes than you'll ever need, including multiple ways to apply texture and animate the globe.

Note

This section requires the BCC Sphere effect from the Boris FX Continuum Complete collection of effects. If you don't have this collection installed, you can install a trial version of it from this book's DVD.
