    Regarding the spheres (globes) in Logo Creator. Is there a way to slice the sphere in half? I have a logo problem that requires a sphere to be sliced and the halves moved apart slightly. Can anyone help me out? :image09:

    Thanks

    Try masking it with a white box and exporting it as a png.

    Being TLC will ONLY export what it can see on the the canvas if you drag the orb off so only 1/2 is showing (vertical or horizontally) you can export it as a Transparent png essentially slicing the orb Or you can drag the canvas in so only 1/2 is showing (see attachment).

    thanks for the advice

    KD-Did... I'm still discovering all the things I can do with TLC. That was a good piece of advice. I can make both halves that way.

    I have been using TLC for years and still discovering ways to make it do tricks.

    And, I love to listen to her. She's far more superior than I am. I like to do things the hard way! haha

    Thought you guys would like to see the job I did in slicing the sphere. Sometimes, two...or three... heads are better than one. Here it is: (hope it loads)

    another handy tool is the blur and shadow . I made this for an example.
