The logo on the football helmet presented a great challenge; How to make the logo conform to the shape of the helmet?

This would have been easy if I simply wanted to create a UV map for the helmet model, but not practical because I needed a simple way to allow users to customize the template with their own logo (without understanding UV principles).

Michiel was kind enough to update the BeachballSticker.cfx (attached) to allow for placement and control of a logo/photo on a sphere. The sphere can then be made transparent... leaving only the curved logo.

This gives the illusion that the logo is on the actual football helmet, when in fact, the logo is on the transparent sphere.

I have updated the BeachballSticker effect.

The following 3 props are now 2D:
FX Transparency
FX Lighting factor
FX Reflection factor

1st slider controls the ball, 2nd the sticker.

This way you can control those props independently for the ball and the sticker.

Click on the DOWNLOAD MEDIA FILES button at the top of this article to download the updated effect.

This has NOTHING to do with what is posted. Please kill this crap.

The BeachballSticker effect is the effect that renders the logo on the helmet.

Choose MEDIA > CHANGE EFFECT... to apply the effect to your layer. It works best applied to a picture layer.
