Creating a Spherical Map from a Vector Design
on Jan 17, 2012 at 1:50:42 am

There's a couple posts on the forum over the years about creating a spherical map from an image. Most point to the following tutorial: http://www.lizardlounge.com/html/tutorials/c4d/sphericalMap/index.html

The problem is that haphazard method won't work with the vector .ai design I've got: http://i.imgur.com/uB868.png

Placed as seen above in a 2:1 width:height ratio, it works out as you'd expect; the center looks fine, the tops are distorted. http://i.imgur.com/qCun2.png

Anyone know of a way to create the distortion necessary for it to resolve once spherized (or, if they can give a tutorial easier to follow then the above one.)
