Makin’ Mars: Adding orbiting moons and having them cast shadows in Video Copilot Orb

Here’s the next instalment of Makin’ Planets. This time it’s Mars. In the tutorial, After creating Mars, I then create Phobos and link it’s orbit to Mars. Then using expressions and lights, I have it cast a shadow onto the surface of the red planet.

After Effects tutorial: Converting a 2D effect to 3D (using a bit of Maths) to make a Black Hole

Long title, but it about covers it. In this tutorial, I'm demonstrating how to get the look of an Interstellar Movie-type Black Hole using the Bulge effect, 3D layers, adjustment layers and how to use expressions to compensate for the fact you can't use Bulge in 3D space.

I've included the project file here:
