Thanks for your reply! I am getting my textures from textures.com and all of the models are shown on a sphere shown in the picture attached. I just want to replicate that look on a sphere but mine come out distorted. I tried changing my sphere to the Hexahedron but to no avail :-/ It seems it is common for people to display textures on spheres when they are selling them - I just don't know how they do it! https://www.textures.com/browse/3d-scans/114548#wood
Hello All! I just joined here so hopefully I am posting in the right spot. What I want to do is texture a Sphere like the photo attached. I've made my image ration 1:2 and selected Spherical mapping. I have also tried UV mapping and Cylindrical mapping but no matter what I do my texture still gets funky at the top. I am trying to make it look just like the attached photo. I've attached mine and the example I'm trying to achieve. I'm also using V-Ray. Anyone know what I am doing wrong? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
