I am trying to create a 3d cricket ball in Photoshop.
I need to add a seam to the ball and also a logo to one side of it.
created a 1920×1080 canvas (this is for video eventually)
I created a primitive sphere from the photoshop mesh presets
I paste in my logo from illus in to the layer above in the 3d panel and rasterize the layer
I size it up as best I can and then merge down. using camera front view
Tis succesfully wraps my logo onto one side of the sphere.
I then have aseam that I also created in illustrator. (These are basically just dashed horizontal lines across a 1920×1080 illus document.)
When I paste this into to photshop and ty and merge it down using camera top view it only wraps halfway around the sphere. So I tried creating a separate 3d mesh sphere using the seam layer, which works – but then I can’t get it to wrap in the correct direction, plus Im not sure how to merge the 2 separate 3d layers.
I think Im missing a trick here…
Thanks, very confused!
