    Creating Sphere Help (3D) in CS6

    alexk42920492

      trying to create a mock up of earth in CS6 with 3d abilities.

      I have 3 layers prepared:

      Background (black)

      Transparent layer with "stars"

      and top layer being a "sphere" that's coloured blue. (I eventually want to add in land formations etc after I figure out how to do it right)

      so I want to make something like this: https://blog.spoongraphics.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2008/04/91.gif

      BUT I want to be able to move it around so I can see land mass on the other side as well...

       

      anyway, so... I have my layers set up.

       

      I go to menu bar >3D> new mesh from layer>mesh preset>sphere...

      now heres the problem....

      Everytime I do this, my sphere ends up being half blue and half white.

      I don't know why or how to fix it.

      let alone I don't know how to add "land masses" to it, or make them go around the whole sphere so I can spin it around and see all sides
