Hi there,
Can anyone guide me as to how I can rotate some logos in 3d space(appear 3D like) moving around a globe created using CC Sphere?

Create a null (3d). Make all your logo layers 3d. Link all to Null. Move all in z space forward. Offset by rotating on Y axis. Rotate null on Y axis = logos rotate in 3d space. It's now a matter to figure if the z offset of the logos from the center Null is enough to make the logos rotate on an orbit that is bigger than the sphere.

Thank you sir... I was hoping to have it look sort of like the CW /WPix Saturday cartoon line up preview where the logos for each cartoon revolve in 3D Space from right, forward to the centre and disappear to the left into the background. I think this is going to work just fine. Thanks Ted...
