Ok, heres my problem, i need an animated cloud layer texture for a 3d earth.
I already tried to make my own by downloading around 3000 composite satelite pics from:
and put them together in after effects, keyed out the purple stuff and enhanced and cleaned out the incomplete pics (the satellites dont have 24h coverage all the time).
problem is 640x350 is as sucky for a texture as it can get (for a PAL DV render).
now my question is does anyone know where to get a texture like that (doesnt have to be for free), or any way to make my own?
I thought about using a water texture to animated the clouds procedurally, but that looks fairly synthetic, any other ideas?
