I'm working on a video, and I have my spherized Earth, but now I was wondering if there were any ways to plant a flag/tack/anything on top of the sphere and have it move in a natural way with the Earth when it rotates?

Say, I plant a pin in Beijing and then I rotate to the flag in New York? I can't figure out how to get a decent rotate.

one of the easiest way is to locate all flags in a 2D texture Map of Earth and then use CC Sphere Effect to create the Earth.
