I have a project with a material I want to add to my sphere. I want to add this logo onto the sphere. I have tried various ways of uv mapping but I keep messing up :/ enter image description here

This is my current material setup:

enter image description here

And here is what I would like to have:

enter image description here

EDIT:

I have now changed my setup like the answer stated, but my material still changes with the PNG, so it becomes black although my material is red

MY SETUP (NEW):enter image description here

Something (probably a small setting) is stil wrong, but I can't figure it out.

  • $\begingroup$ 1-Use a color mix node and use the alpha channel of the image as factor to mix theimage's RGB information with the base color used in the diffuse shader: i.stack.imgur.com/ybxkL.jpg. $\endgroup$ – cegaton Nov 13 '17 at 17:19
  • $\begingroup$ 2-When uploading blend files always pack the images, otherwise the image will not be part of the file (See this link) 3. Please do not use file sharing sites that try to charge money to download files. Use blend-exchange.giantcowfilms.com instead. 4- Here's a link to your fixed file on the site mentioned earlier: <img src="https://blend-exchange.giantcowfilms.com/embedImage.png?bid=4105" />. $\endgroup$ – cegaton Nov 13 '17 at 17:20
