Simulate CC Sphere as 3D object
on Aug 9, 2010 at 12:03:35 pm

I have an object made by CC Sphere effect. The problem is that when the camera flies around the 2D nature of the effect is revealed. Yes, the object is always oriented towards the camera but the applied texture and the lighting won't rotate in the same degree as the camera changes its position.

Thus, I wonder if there is an expression (or few ;-)) that can handle the problem? Is it possible at all?

I didn't need the links! All the code is at the main page. Everything works as advertised. That's exactly how I wanted it to work! :-) Thanks again Kevin! And thank you Filip too. That's the second time I use your code in my project. :-) Something tells me that this is not the last time either. ;-)
