A filter for creating planetary spherical texture maps.Small tip for usage: start with 'Land distortion' and 'Distortion roughness' turned down to zero. First slide the 'Land scale' and 'Sea level' untill you get the desired landmass. Then apply 'Land distortion' and 'Distortion roughness'.Although this seems like an update to the earlier Terraformer filter it is in fact a complete rebuild using ThreeDee's 'Planetary Noise Snippet V1' (which in turn is based on ByRo's 'Un-Spherify'). Unlike the earlier Terraformer this filter will only work on a 1x1 aspect ratio.
