I just want to (shrink) wrap a plane with an image over (around) the entire object, not just one face / plane.
[EDIT, after two answers] Many have said that original question is unclear. So now that I understand what I was asking %-/, here's the translation:
How do I cover an object with a picture without using UV Mapping -> unwrap?
[EDIT] Skip down to the accepted answer from Duane Dibbley.
Perhaps superfluous details, an example of an only partially successful attempt:
- Start Blender with factory defaults (will use default cube).
- Create Plane.
- Drag drop some arbitrary image onto plane.
- Set parent of plane to cube (via drag drop plane to cube in Outliner).
- Click plane.
- Add Modifier: Shrinkwrap.
- Set target to cube.
At this point, it's just on the top face of the cube. How can I get it to cover the entire cube (all faces), e.g. "folding" it around the whole thing? If this turns out to be more complicated, e.g. requiring some UV / mesh mapping things, can you please point out a link or two that might assist? (I've looked a bunch of tutorials, blender wiki, and blender docs (which I wish had examples, not just parameters :)), but I seem to be denser than that cube! Thank you! - H
[EDIT:] Requested Screenshot --- the "brain" should cover the entire cube, but not multiple same images on each face, i.e., the cube should look like a brain in the shape of a cube.
