    I’m not sure, but you can try CC Sphere like this

    The problem I am having is that my arrow is showing through the Earth and I have no idea why. I tried making a pre-comp like yours and key-framed in some movement on the arrow then applied the CCSpehere but that kinda didn’t work. I can get a similar result to yours playing with the radius and rotation but get a see arrow showing through the earth when it is behind it.

    Just clicked the ‘Outside’ render option, seems to work! Thanks
