Planet texture maps and Cinema 4D tutorials

This page used to be home to my Cinema 4D tutorials, and was an adjunct to my main website JHT's Planetary Pixel Emporium. Bandwidth issues forced me to move both pages to a new domain at http://planetpixelemporium.com

Links to the Planetary Texture Maps

I have a collection of texture maps for rendering the planets. Most of them are free. The larger ones are available for a modest fee which controls the amount of bandwidth used and covers the cost of running the site.
