Hello All,

 

I am new to After Affects and have managed to get to grips with AE and the Vc Orb plugin. 

 

I have started creating an animation using an Earth I created in AE with the VC orb tool and it looks great.

My next step is to start adding data point layers to the Earth sphere so that during the animation the data points reveal at different times. 

 

How do i fix dots and shapes as well as pop up text boxes to the 3d sphere so that they are attached  and track with the camera as it moves in 3D space. 

 

I have added a still image with some annotations on it as a draft reference. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

VC Orb is a little difficult to use. You'll probably need more than one layer and one instance of the effect. I suggest you spend some time on the Video Copilot site looking at all of the VC orb tutorials you can find. I've only used it one time on a paid project and if I remember right I needed about 8 layers to get the effect to do what I wanted it to do.

Hey!

I'm pretty new to after effects and would like to create something similar to you and I've been struggling for a few days with VC orb.

Have you find a solution ?

Many thanks,

Franck
