Maya Earth Test Render - Development
This video shows a quick test render of my Maya 3D earth, moon and sun. The star background was made in Maya using Galaxy Paint Effects then edited in Photoshop. I took this in to After Effects and quickly composited it with the Maya tiff sequence.
From this quick render there are a few clear issues, the star background is far to bright and don't move properly when the Earth rotates, the clouds are lit on the dark side of the Earth, the sun is not realistic enough and the cloud is far too high.
The second part of this moving image sequence is edited together with the Earth Zoom I previously created, this is joined by using fractal noise set to look cloud like.
