animate a map wrap deforming into a spherical shape
on Mar 22, 2011 at 11:29:08 pm

Hello again

I'm trying to do a simple animation where a flat map of the world curves into a sphere/world. Sounds easy and there are many tempting-sounding wrap deformer type things, but I can't figure out how to get it to work. Think I've got a case of brain overuse/freeze going on, so any help would be HUGELY appreciated!

Thanks!

Paul

Ha! It's a day of solving my own problems!

I found the answer here:

Basically creating a pair of bend deformers - one for latitude and one for longitude. Nice and simple.
