Turning Plane to Sphere
on Jul 19, 2005 at 4:51:51 am

I'm trying to animate a sphere changing shape to plane (a World Map). I've tried using 2 bend mods, but seems that I have problem with the textures/final sphere look.

Here's what I did:
1. Quad Patch (I collapse this with planar UVW)
2. Applied bend mod: 360deg (x)
3. Applied bend mod: -180deg and direction 90 (y)

Can anyone help me to get the right look of an perfect earth (mapping) from sphere to to a straight plane.
Or is there any other way to do this (like polar coordinate FX).
