sphere mapping

how do i map a picture to the inside of a sphere so that it doesn’t appear a million times?

  • select the sphere
  • go to mat buttons F5
  • if without material, add a new one
  • add a texture
  • in Map input tab leave ORCO
  • press Sphe for spherical projectio)
  • in the texture buttons F6 choose the image you want


you could also do via UVmapping, then instead of ORCO just press UV. check out the threads and tuts on UV mapping if you need hellp there
