Creating a 3D Earth Using Mesh Presets

Now we're going to talk about creating a 3D, or creating a 3D Earth. and we're going to use a mesh preset for that. So let me just... I'll delete this file, that's fine. I'll create a new layer and I'm just going to call it "Earth". And I'm going to click on the 3D panel and you can also create your 3D presets from here. The source is a selected layer. Mesh from preset. And I can select one of these presets. And the one that most resembles the earth is, of course, a sphere. And I can click on create and it's going to create a sphere. Now we talked earlier about how the sphere casts shadows on to the ground plane. In spacing, we don't really want the earth casting shadows anywhere, it's not sitting on anything, it's floating in space. So we can remove the shadow by going into environment and under ground plane, we can just bring the opacity down to zero. Now there's another way of doing that, it's by clicking on the infinite light and just unchecking shadow, but I don't really want to d...

o that because that means that the object itself won't cast a shadow. I do want the object to cast a shadow in case I decide to add maybe a moon or a spaceship or something, I want shadows hitting that secondary object. We're not going to do that in this example, but I just wanted to point that out. I just don't want there to be a surface where shadow is being cast on to.
