spinning globe
Hello,
I've created a spinning globe through the filters/animation/spinning globe function. It works just fine but the function doesn't complete the globe. There is a slender seam that runs from the north pole to the south pole. Is there anyway to close that seam so that the globe is a perfect globe?

RE: spinning globe
ofnuts, have you created a spinning globe, and if you have do you know of the seam that i am writing about? i have zero experience with gimp. i found out, through accident, that i could create a spinning globe in gimp to complete a class assignment. it works perfectly except for that seam. i went to youtube and downloaded a video that explains how to create the spinning globe in gimp. it is very easy to follow that video. i guess in order to make the globe completely whole without the seam i would need detailed instructions to accomplish the task. maybe you could make a video of this procedure that you know of and post it to youtube.
