Spherical UV Mapping?

Post by Bischofftep » Fri Feb 28, 2003 9:45 pm

Hello, all:

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. :wink:

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:
blender/source/blender/src/editface.c :
You can add it back in by adding:
to the:
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)
