Flat map -> to Globe?
on Sep 15, 2019 at 5:29:08 pm

Hi there!
I would like to do something pretty simple,
I would like to have ability to "unfold" a sphere (Globe, in my case) to a flat map
so to the sketch the idea; something from this:

To this:

If the good old CC Sphere would have an unfold possibility...

There is a 3rd party plugin which has the ability (power-sphere), but it's trail version is glitchy and stutters.

I am sure there are ways of achieving the effect. (Without delving into C4D)
If anyone has a tip or direction, I would love to know!
Thank you!

Sorry, but I would actually do this in C4D. It's pretty easy: make the sphere by using the Wrap deformer on a plane. You can then animate its properties to fold/unfold.
