Hi
I'm a relative newcomer to the world of 3d post FX and After effects.

I have several locked down shots of building exteriors. I want to incorporate some basic 3d effects into these shots using After Effects.

The 3d effect I want to create is best described as a glass globe that also emits light, that also 'travels' thru my footage.

I'm wondering the best way to go about this.

A very basic globe effect can be done using only displacement map techniques right in After effects.
Additionally I can create any reflective surfaces inside AE, and match the perspective to my live footage.

Any other tips or suggestions?

Well, you could hire someone to do it :D

Go look at videocopilot.net, which is an enormous time sink for people who find this stuff diverting.

Thanks
Can't afford to hire anyone, and besides, love learning all aspects of filmmaking!

Realized after posting I was being too specific in mentioning After Effects.

Will check out the tutorials on videocopilot.

Having had a quick squint at the site, I suspect you might find a couple of the tutorials over there are almost directly applicable to your task.

Still, don't just parrot out a tutorial - take what you can from them and build your own effects.
