Title: Planet Earth Animation
Post by: SebastianG on July 23, 2018, 03:45:18 am
Hello Everyone,

I rendered Planet Earth in KeyShot 7.3 Pro.
The most difficult task was rendering the atmosphere. I used an extra sphere combined with gradient textures to create the glowing effect.
This is not perfect, maybe you guys have a better way to do it in Keyshot?

Thanks!

Day and night textures, Terrestrial elevation data, Land/water mask, Arctic and Antarctic sea ice mask, Milky Way panorama

Not bad! Definitely a challenge (which is why I haven't tried it myself yet). Nice experiment.

Thanks! I had some spare time and decided to try something new in KeyShot :)
Five years ago I followed a Blender tutorial from "Blender Guru" on how to render a realistic earth.
But I couldn't find the original tutorial so I did everything from memory in KeyShot.

Blender Guru created a new tutorial using Blender Cycles:

Can I please get new units in KeyShot:
