Hello,
I have searched but I can not find an answer for my problem. I would like to orbit a graphic mapped onto a image plane around a globe that is rotating on it's y axis in 3d. I cannot figure out how or what to connect the image plane to the 3d globe so that it maintains the distance I want and the speed of the glob's rotation..Thanks in advance.

Looks like the easiest would be to position the two the way you want them, then feed both into a Merge3D and rotate the Merge3D?
