seamless spheres

i seem to be missing something too obvious just now :P

what is the trick to get a seamless image onto a sphere to the north and south poles are not pinching?


but it isn't just the poles, it also stretches along the equator.

Try adding a transform set to flip vertically after the texture, apply a rectangle mask and soft edge. After that add a sphere map. And instead of applying the texture into the sphere use a replace material.
