The planisphere in Studio is mapped to the globe object of Boris Graffiti

Still farther...

Not long ago, I explained that there was an official problem between Boris Graffiti and Studio. This limitation does not allow to map an image on an extruded 3D text directly in Boris Graffiti. But this inconsistency could be avoided if you are clever enough... I also explained in a tutorial how to group their work, to give more power to both software.

Today, continuing my outreach efforts, I managed to do something that seemed unthinkable-unbelievable a month ago. I managed to map an image stored in Studio on an object in a Boris Graffiti effect. You should know that with the softwares we use, mapping an image on a text is already not easy, but when it comes to map an image onto an object it is something quite impossible...

Big deal you may say, but how important ? If I help you, by informing you that the image placed on the time line of Studio is a world map and that the object contained in the Boris Graffiti effect is a globe ... Do you see the interest and the solution ?

I promise to reveal everything in an upcoming tutorial, I will add further explanations. But in the meantime, you can already see the result and why not, you can also find the trick that allows to achieve it, picking an idea in the last Boris Graffiti tutorial available on the web. It's just a challenge for fun to test your fighting and see if your interest in Boris Graffiti is always so big. And who knows, the one who has the closest answer might be ........

So here is what is possible to achieve ... if you have an hour or two to search ?...

Good research to all !
Please let us known through the comments below, and Papy will try to guide you. If someone find the correct answer, or is near to find it, we will let you know.

A new clue from Le Papy :

You need a 3D Extrusion text track in order to map onto a text made with a font a bit special.

I want to take this moment, and thank Le Papy for the great challenge! I am humbled by your thoughts! Concerning the solution to the challenge, I followed
your tutorial on mapping an image to text. I searched different ways of kerning the
letter "O" with hrs of no results. Reading Saby's comment set me off looking for
different fonts with a solid fill on the letter "O". Font style wingdings had the solid
circle VIOLA! From there I again followed your great tutorial on mapping an image to
text. This challenge vastly improved my knowledge of Boris Graffiti. Again, this challenge is the best tutorial! See my upload video titled Ski.

Sorry jjssbailey for answering so late !!! As you maybe know, we have migrated our server to a new one, more powerful (faster normally...). Therefore, it requires a lot of time and involvement, reason why I was not able to come back sooner to inform you that... YOU WON THE PRIZE (Creative Pack).

I will contact you with the email address you provided here, to deliver the price you deserve, offered by Pinnacle.
