I'm looking for tutorials on what makes seamless space-to-earth transitions work. Meaning landing on a 3D planet from space. Like Infinity:
Thanks

You could start with His Journal

You'll have to hunt around a bit for what you want, if it's in there. He goes over a lot of things.

Are you concerned with the mechanics of going from zero-G into the grav field of a planet then I would look up Newton mechanics in a physics textbook [grin]

If you are after the graphical effect of entering an atmosphere from space then I would recommend using Google for some papers on "atmosphere rendering". Anyway, the best place to start looking for such topics is always vterrain.org:

For the physics:

Just alter the gravity dependent on the next planet.
