Summary0010404: TextureMapToSphere reverses textures
DescriptionI have a user that wants to map the world to a sphere.
ParaView 3.6.2, XP, local server.

* Sources/ SuperQuadric. Theta resolution == 128. Phi Resolution = 128.
* Turn off Toroidal.
* Apply.
* On the Display tab, Apply Texture.
* Use the world map, found at [^] [^] (Enter this on the Display tab)
* Notice that the earth looks good.

* Filters/ Alphabetical/ TextureMapToSphere.
* On the Display tab, Apply Texture.
* Notice that the earth looks reversed.

We are speculating this is because the original developer of this filter wanted to be able to wrap the texture on a sphere, and that the user then moved the eye INSIDE of the sphere - thus making the sphere the 3d window background. Thus, please make a user selectable option allowing the user to reverse the texture if desired.

It is also mirrored. Once again, this is incorrect.
