This visualization was created in support of the Science On a Sphere film called "LARGEST" which is about Jupiter. The visualziation was choreographed to fit into "LARGEST" as a layer that is intended to be composited with other layers. In this case, mulitple layers are provided to make the it appear as if a sphere were filling up with Earths. These frames are in cylindrical equidistant projection and are intended to be viewed wrapped to a sphere. A sample composite of the layers is provided to show how the shot might be composed from the source layers.
