High Resolution Satellite Images?
on Jul 26, 2011 at 8:13:04 am

I'm trying to do an Earth zoom effect in AE like this > http://www.videocopilot.net/tutorials/earth_zoom/

but I want to use satellite images to my house/city, not the ones he's put up for download.

Where can I find high resolution satellite images that I could use for this effect?

I've asked similar questions before but bottom line is if you go to a satellite company specializing in this, they will charge you and arm and a leg.

One option that I looked at is to use google earth. If you poke through the settings once you find your location, you can remove the little icons, street names, and all that junk leaving you with a pretty clean image.

From there, a screen shot or something.

Hope that helps.
