View Full Version : Painting the surface of the earth from cruising altitude...

09 September 2004, 06:55 PM
Hey all-

I'm working on a 3d animation that involves being very high up - about passenger-jet cruising altitute. I'm looking for a solid way or template for making a matte painting of the surface of the planet as seen from that altitude. I'm realizing that's its going to have to be a pretty large image file, but i really dont know where to begin. Eventually I'm going to want to paste this image over a geometric surface in 3dsmax to represent the planet, then simply have it fade out into some fog.

can anyone help me get started here. any ideas?

thank you so much!!
