    Very good. Spins faster than Jupiter.
    Cow/Bull - what does it matter? It's bovine.
    It was a cow, but I thought that maybe gender-identifying appendages may not be suitable for a public forum.

    You're right about the atmosphere.
    After all, it's a big bovine.

    Done in Xtreme only. I experimented with putting a bright core in the center of the invisiglobe.

    The optical illusion which makes it appear that you have two thingoes bouncing horizontally off each other spoils a great idea.

    I dunno ... mebbe a few more frames and a slower anim may cure that?

    The interior light source makes the inside shell of the continents appear concave but without an exterior light source, the forward continent appears flat.

    Additionally, if you used a convex lens you could increase the believabiltiy of the animation as the continent would be then warped toward you. As of now, it looks like continent shaped cookies racing from view.

    I don't see that. To me it looks 3D and spherical. Great job!

    Thanks All,
    Sally,
    Yes, I agree, those adjustments would improve the illusion. If I get ambitious, I will try implementing your suggestions; they're good ones.

    All you need is one lens and that should do it.

    Sally,
    When you say lens, I thought you meant a prospective/mold. Could you explain to this dunce what the "lens" is?
    thanks,
    ron

    Well, in CorelDRAW you can use a concave or convex lens, which is a layer or an object higher in the stacking order which distorts what lies underneath just as if you had a paperweight with a maginfying lens built into it.

    You can use some of Gary's Tutorials for doing that or can distort the actual shapes using envelopes for vector shapes too.
