hi all, how do you create background sphere textures for mb3d ?!
i would like to have one to be used as intro for my news show, but it seems harder than i thought

i tried out the panorama camera renderer in mb3d, this seems to be producing perfect textures to be used as backgrounds, but i want a universe style, or some clouds ... sad

I use my 3D program  (Carrara)  - not sure if all 3D software has a spherical camera or not. 

Try Blender.  Just set the image as the backdrop in an empty scene, and render with a spherical camera.  That's all Carrara needs anyhow...

If that fails, just  get me as high a resolution image as possible, and I can convert it to a spherical camera image quickly and easily enough.

If you need it seamless, that may get tricky - but should still be possible.

Those look definitely cool but I fear they are copyrighted?

I am seriously thinking about adding more maps to the standard ones to MB3D and some spherical panorama under public domain maybe very helpful. More searching now!

Thinking now; can I add them to a custom MB release + my new formulas? praying praying praying

I finally found a great program that can generate a realistic terrain. It can be then easily made seamless.

Steps;

1. Get GeoControl. http://www.cajomi.de/GeoControl/geocontrol_shop.htm
2. Make your terrain. (click on generate). Try some cool filters (Terrain shape) - can make eroded terrains, glaciers etc. the wave
3. Export it! the wave main menu; TERRAIN - TERRAIN EXPORT - HEIGHTFIELD GRAYSCALE
4. Close GC cheesy
5. Open the file with Photoshop; Mehdi Seamless Border makes it seamless!

Done!
