Description
Here comes the 1km resolution ultra photoreal model of planet earth for 3ds max (2013, 2012, 2011, 2010) and V-Ray 2.0. Complete earth, cloud and atmosphere shaders.
+ Dynamic shader for any earth rotation, lighting and camera angle
+ Realistic model scalings
+ Realistic light settings
+ Ready-to-render setup (V-Ray only)
+ Linear Workflow (LWF)
+ Suitable for low altitudes in HD
+ Ultra high definition textures (86k with 4x 21,6k maps)
+ No other plugins (exempt V-Ray)

BONUS MATERIAL !!!:
+ A complete realistic model and shader of Moon with 21k maps

This scene contains:
+ Textured preview model for the viewport
+ Photorealistic earth model + V-Ray surface shader (diffuse, reflection, displacement and city nightlights)
+ 42k in a 4x2 map grid with 10,8k² pixel diffuse & 84k specular textures
+ 21k displacement maps
+ 42k cloud & 16k city nightlight map
+ Cloud model and shader (diffuse, refraction, displacement and city nightlights)
+ Example V-Ray Physical Cameras
+ Model and shading of the Moon with 21k resolution (diffuse and displacement map)
+ optional V-Ray-Glow effect
+ optional V-Ray Fog for volumetric atmosphere (large render times)

Notes:
+ Recommended memory size for uncomplicated workflow: 16GB or more
+ Use V-Ray Physical Camera
+ Use V-Ray VFB and enabled sRGB for still renderings
+ Use 32-Bit (EXR) for animated renderings
+ This scene contains linear color mapping (linear workflow)
+ Use Slider to control earth rotation and moon orbit
+ Relative Paths (for network rendering use absolute paths)
+ More suitable texture materials for more seasons at http://visibleearth.nasa.gov/
+ Use volumetric V-Ray-Fog atmosphere only without the atmosphere V-Ray-Sphere model
+ For better raytracing there's are separate V-Ray Light for moon
+ Use prepared V-Ray color curve correction for better contrast and day-side renderings
