Now that you mentioned that... hmmm...
General discussion for players of Oolite.
Povray cube maps were constructed from 6 rendered frames taken from inside the textured sphere. Frames are then assembled into the tall-strip format to use as a texture. There is no conversion from any other coordinate system.cbr wrote: ↑Sun Aug 16, 2020 10:01 pmAnd more for scientific purpose...
The equirectangular map from an earlier post converted to a cube map [option cube] via the powerfull planettool
It shows a tinier seam than the povray cubemaps which make me think the povray cubemaps were converted a bit different
Next exercise converting a povay cubemap into a equirectangular map
Shows no obvious seams
It is likely that since the povray camera was a perspective camera rather than orthographic, there is some distortion at the seams.
Do you have a screenshot of a Povray planet cube map with seam irregularities - what should I be looking for?

What would you see if you tried landing there?
Can anyone help me extirpate the bally blot on the upper left-hand corner of the family escutcheon? Benedict has tried fullering, some of those tawdry Tescoo's products and even a dab of quicklime, but nothing so far seems to work.
