Ok, I’m making a globe where wherever there is ocean, a transparency effect occurs so the end result shows a globe with only landmasses cut out of it, hence you can see through to the land masses at the other end of the globe.
I made a JPEG with the land in black and the sea in white. What I’m wondering is how do I get the white to either:
A: Deform the mesh so that the actual geometry is effected and I can actually extrude the land masses to give it some depth (to look like metal sculpture)
or B: Just cause the with to go transparent so that you can see the effect stated above.
Any help on this would be wonderfull.
