How To Create a 3D Earth in Blender 2.9 with EEVEE

As the title says, create the whole world in Blender!

  • First, we introduce bringing in textures for the base colour, specular, and normals of the world.
  • Then, we use Object Space coordinates to create the night side of the planet.
  • Next, we use a transparent material to bring in the clouds and fake some atmospheric scattering hue shifts.
  • Finally, we use another transparent material to add an atmospheric layer to give us some nice sunsety glows around the world’s edges.
