Notes for buyersThis template is tested on all new versions of After Effects. No bugs were found on the latest versions, however some users reported some malfunctions on the cc23.3 AE version. Since these problems only occur sporadically on some systems, it is difficult to pinpoint the cause.
Should these problems occur to you, we recommend that you use the template with a version earlier than 23.3 in hopes that these issues will be resolved in future After Effects updates.
For all other technical problems, do not hesitate to contact us, we will be at your disposal to help you solve any other problem.

How can I be sure that the VC ORB plugin works on my machine?If you want to be sure that you can use this template, simply download and install the free plugin “Orb” from www.videocopilot.net/orb.
In a new project, create a new composition, add a solid and add the VC Orb plugin to the solid. If it turns to a sphere, it works, so you can be sure that 3D Earth Connections will work as well!
