Hello, i'm making scintella from warhammer 40k dark herecy. I'm woundering how i can turn these two spheres into a cylindrial map? Image
I'm using photoshop, and i can't seem to find out how to do it. I'd be really happy if i could get help here :)

Two software packages that I know about which can do the reprojection are
MMPS http://www.users.globalnet.co.uk/~arcus/mmps/mmps.html

and IRIS http://www.astrosurf.com/buil/us/iris/iris.htm

Where is the resynth tool located? This looks pretty cool.

but for a linux build it is very strait forward
build gimp on your system ( or install the gimp & gimp-devel, or -dev package)

Code: Select all

./configure --prefix=/usr
make && make install

make install as a normal user tells "gimptool-2.0" to install in the users HOME folder
I downloaded the "Resynthesizer win64 + Heal selection + Pattern fill" and installed it, and got this little bastard:

:evil:

Before that, the resynthesizer plug-in was working perfectly.

Ahhhhahahahahahaha! :lol:

I checked the dates on my existing resynthesizer install, and realized it was an outdated version from 2005. :lol:

So, I got the latest version and installed and it works now. :)
