    Guys in the image of my C4D file below how do I….

    1. Expand (and brighten a little) the atmospheric glow (circled red area) to extend to ‘almost’ half of the earth’s edge?

    2. Brighten up the render a little, while the size of the light reflection on the spherical surface remains the same

    C4D file:

    Both of the things you’re describing would probably be done easier in compositing. That is, in your post app of choice – After Effects, Fusion, Nuke, etc.

    I would love to work with C4D to accomplish this but however if you think I can also do this in AE then show me a video example on how to transfer this to AE and apply the effects mentioned above then I will follow it.

    Thanks..

    One option for more control over the glow would be to deselect “Use Material Color” so that the “Color” and “Brightness” controls are available.

    Thanks Jim

    That was very helpful. I was able to adjust the atmospheric glow to my liking.
