cone gradient with top sliced off.

cone gradient with top sliced off.
Alright, with out pictures, let me try to explain what I'm trying to do, and maybe someone here can help:

I'm trying to create a black and white (grayscale) top-down gradient of half a cone.

I select a circle, and using the cone gradient, start from the middle and go outward to the edges. Great so far, I have a top-down cone, but what I really need is only half of that, as if I was creating a top-down volcano with the top half sliced off and a flat rounded middle.

This is becoming a bump-map so the RGB value must match perfectly the highest point of the gradient with the sliced off part.

I hope I'm clear. Any suggestions?

RE: cone gradient with top sliced off.
Actually I figured this out by increasing the "offset" for the gradient. Rather than post a picture, imagine selecting a circle, using the radial gradient with a 25 offset, white to black gradient, and then fill the circle from the middle in a straight line to any edge: That's what I was try to do.
