Just wondering where "Spherical UV Mapping" went in 2.25-2.26?
Is it really not useful, or did it just get axed?
Anyone have any idea?
Actually, I already mentioned it to the programmers just a few weeks ago. The option should be back in the next release.
The reason i wanted it back was so that i could properly UV texture a sphere before exporting it to Yafray
A few versions back there was a really weird bug in the spherical uv calculation... I guess it was easier to kill it temporarily =)
Spherical UV mapping is in:
You can add it back in by adding:
MENUSTRING("Spherical map", UV_SPHERE_MAPPING)
mode= pupmenu(MENUTITLE("UV Calculation")
The case for spherical is combined with the cylinder mapping:
and uses if else statements to determine which function to call. It does give so so results but is better that trying to use the other mapping methods to apply a texture to a sphere.
For the adventurous, the code for spherical mapping is in:
spheremap(float x, float y, float z, float *adr1, float *adr2)
