New to the board, but I've been stumped on a project I've been working on. The customer wanted locations they've installed equipment at to glow on a globe, we had hoped that our workaround would keep them happy but they want an effect (I'm sad to say similar to the Universal Logo effect - available on Youtube), or essentially points of light eminating from points on the globe as it turns. Any way to light up distinct points would work, it just has to look cool? Any suggestions or tutorials? I am researching point lighting in 3dsMax and have tried to find some way to wrap the lights on the 3D globe in After Effects.
The original vid is on Youtube enter url here /user/elmedia1#pau1/pcpGhgx8Rb8. The globes at :21, any suggestions would be unreal, Thanks!
