Has anyone used DreamSuite's Liquid Metal plugin to produce a globe?

I'm trying to create a very shiny ball bearing. The plugin is great on text and complicated shapes but on a circle I can't get a nice round 3D globe.

anyone else using his plugin?

after a lot of trial and error with depth, corner radius and loading in my own enviornments the image has got his far. It still looks a bit flat.

I don't think you'll be able to get a nice 3D effect with this plug-in. The best way to get 3D is by using a 3D program.

Take a look at Blender (, which is a free 3D program.
