Hello. I'm trying to create a movie with mars zoom effect to it. Unfortunately I have no solid ideas how to create it. Mars should be rotating a bit to make it more realistic. I'm not asking anyone to do this for me. Rather give me some ideas and tips to get me off the start.

Example:



but Mars instead of earth (also without rain effect)

Thanks in advance

I believe you can get all the way without using a 3-d program if you use freeform for the craters and hook together all these tutorials into one project.

Here are a couple of links for high resolution images of Mars- you can use those to create your zoom:

Also- use Google earth to see mars in 3d- screen grabs may help create an animation:

Thank you very much guys. I found those links very useful and I don't think I will have any problems creating this effect. CreativeCow FTW!
