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.


but Mars instead of earth (also without rain effect)

Thanks in advance

your basic planet zoom

test out and modify the texture here to a redish wastland or try some pics from hubble

advanced flying around a sphere in ae

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!
