Texture on a sphere
Hi Everyone

Can anyone explains how to wrap a texture onto a sphere using paraview?
I have found that but it seems outdated as I am using paraview 3.98:

I have found the texturemaptosphere filter and I have created a sphere but I can not figure out how to load my image as a texture...

Thank you

Greetings oliverjack and welcome to the forum!

This same question was asked some time ago and you can find the answers there:

Thanks Bruno! I am going to have a look at that right now.

OK. So in case someone is trying to do the same, the load texture option does not appear by default. You need to click on the little gear on the right of the "search" option in the "display" field of the texturemaptosphere filter.

Rather trivial but one can lose a lot of time on that :-(
