Blog: Makin' the Sun using Video Copilot Orb

Here's a tutorial for creating a 3D Sun in After Effects using Video Copilot's excellent free Orb plugin.  The video starts builds on an earlier Andrew Kramer tutorial for creating a solar surface, but then applies the textures to VC Orb and adds a corona or halo and uses particles and another Video Copilot plugin Saber (also free) to add solar flares.



(I uploaded this video a little while ago, so apologies if you've seen it already, but I realised I hadn't blogged about it.)
