Novice - How to properly UV map a Sphere? Aug. 1, 2021, 10:46 a.m.

How about a hemisphere? I saw a video where they cut the sphere in half and map each separately. But even still, I'm getting distortion along the edges. My goal is to map video to a sphere so can't have any uv breaks. I'm thinking I could spend hours trying to uv edit. So far, vertices/polar is the best and will just have to live with distortion at the poles.

Why is not this working? (UV Flatten/Seams) Aug. 1, 2021, 9:56 a.m.

Hello Island,
I'm realizing it is hard to correctly UV wrap a sphere with video. I'm actually trying to do so with a hemi-sphere (half a sphere) and still having trouble. I think there will always be some distortion, breaking seams won't work for me, needs to be continuous.

I'm also interested in this method. We want to projected seamlessly on this bass model.

I was thinking polar or cylindrical UV projection would be best. This way textures can keep wrapping around the body portion seamlessly.

I've experimented with UV Flatten but this has a seam. Maybe I'll try UV Pelt again.
