I stumbled upon this great tool today called OpenSky. A simple (Windows) app that takes any pic and spits out a Spherical map plus Cube Maps images. The spherical maps are perfect for use with Mandelbulb 3D. No muss no fuss.

I had to move some files after downloading to get it to work, simple details on that thread. This is a big time saver if you deal with these kinds of texture maps. I was happy to find it.

I don't know if anyone other than Don can get this to work. I am using a 64 bit machine. Extracted the files but OpenSky.exe would not run because it could not open CORE_RL_MAGICK++_.dll which was in the same folder. sad

There are a few tips in that thread.

I had to copy the contents of the nested folder into the main folder to get it work. I am on Windows8 64bit

I hope it works for others 'cuz it sure is a handy tool. It does a great job on all the images I have thrown at it so far.
