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

COW Blogs : Graham Quince's Blog : 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.

Here you'll find a bunch of tutorials for using After Effects (mainly). I have a YouTube channel, called ShiveringCactus (long story - not funny anymore) where I post the videos.
