    Hi all,

    Hope you are good. Need a little help with an animation. I need to get some arrows to go around the globe in the attached picture. I know I will probably have to create them but can this be achieved in After Effects or is it a Cinema 4D job? I’m not experienced with Cinema 4D!!!

    Cheers guys, any help hugely appreciated..

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

    I’ll report back!

    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.
