Making a moon in stager

Hello, 

 

I would like to make a moon in Stager. I have downloaded the color and displacement maps from this site: https://svs.gsfc.nasa.gov/cgi-bin/details.cgi?aid=4720

 

I had successfully made detailed looking moons in Photoshop before they got rid of the 3D features.

 

Unfortunately, I cannot for the life of me seem to figure out how to:

A) fit the map to a sphere without it looking stretched

B) if I apply a height/displacement/bump map to nearly anything in Stager, it comes out looking clumpy and absurd 

 

I would greatly appreciate some guidance. Thanks.

There is possibility in Stager -Export UVs. It works similar as in Dimension, so I think this video can help you. https://youtu.be/jFFqWHD3Q_4

 

This will help to place decal correctly on 3d surfaces

 

To compliment existing material and decal features in Dimension 2020 (version 3.4), you can now export a 3D model's UVs in PSD format. UVs are a representation of a 3D model flattened into 2D space, making it easy to design graphics in Photoshop and Illustrator.
