The Solar System for Sunday viewing

This (for me at least) was a rather larger project for me to post than most of the others.  I might even categorize it as ‘intermediate.’  Anyway, I have had the project done for a while, but haven’t had time to type up an outline on how to recreate it.

I will post the files and an outline here in the future, but in the meantime, here is an example of how you can use After Effects to sail through the Solar System.  I also used Audition to build the soundtrack with some help from my friends at Digital Juice with their Sound FX library.  Enjoy!

Cool project! I read that you offered to email the project files to a previous poster. Could you send them to me too?
Thanks and great work!


[DR – The project file for this is available at

Hope this helps]

This is great. I’ve been trying to do something similiar for about a week, but am having a lot of trouble with the camera path. Have you had time to put together the tutorial or post the project files? Thanks.

[DR – Tony, I will try to post it for those who want it, but it’s rather large. If you don’t see it, post again and I will email it to you. THanks for your comment.]
