Seems to be that I cannot embed two of my emulations. :huh:

Harvey several hours before making landfall:

Harvey the day after as a tropical storm, stalling near San Antonio and Austin:

How are you getting the rain to go over the city labels without totally blocking them out? I can't figure it out in After Effects.

Tried my best to replicate the second version of the national/satellite feed. Still wondering if I should create maps for the satellite loop.

The radar images for my emulations are put together in Photoshop, so I'm not necessarily sure if the same would apply to here.

What I do is copy the layer with the city names in it and put it above the radar layers and set it to "Overlay" with the shadow layer below it.

I must say, you've done a fantastic job recreating that. :thumbsup: (I'm almost positive that's the only recreation of that type of satellite forecast I've ever seen!)

Thank you! :)

I was intrigued by the design of the earlier satellite forecasts, and the second version was my first choice to emulate. I'm thinking of also emulating the first version too, with the first version of the stills of the WeatherSTAR XL icons and all.
