    It seems not to do anything more than can be done with most 3D applications where there's more versatility.
    I did wonder that...

    A good marketing video will sell tonnes of seats (despite this one being free). Autodesk and C4d use similar techniques and it never fails to get users interested.

    Usually, the stuff they market doesn't quite work as well or swiftly as they may show/describe in their videos. But hey, that's marketing... That is a complete unknown at Newtek

    It does seem to make it easier to add night lights and atmosphere depending on time of day though.

    Well..yes, setting it up in orb seems like more work than I initially thought it would take, fooled by the trailer..questionable wouldn´t it be just as well better to be doing it in Lightwave or blender for that matter.
    If after effects had pre-made presets of procedural cloud layers...specificly worked out to give decent cloud layers for a starter, including procedural land presets...that would be something.

    Rendering glow and such stuff would be sweeter in after effects though, since Lightwave does´t do that in VPR for tweaking feedback, I had wished for that to happen with 2018 to make lw competitional in such area.
    With blender EEVEE that should be doable though, in realtime.
