WebGL Glow Effect
Swipe to Spin the Earth
The WebGL glow effect over the Earth appears similar to transparency with lighting. Implement this visual effect with WebGL blend functions.
The sphere was created in 3DS Max, exported as a Collada DAE file, then converted with Seven Thunder Software's 3D Translator app for display with WebGL. The earth map was created by NASA. Seven Thunder Software modified the image with Photoshop. Download the WebGL Earth Model with Earth Map. See more WebGL lighting examples.
