Is anyone aware of a way to create a fisheye effect with elements in InkScape? Freehand used to have an xtra tool that did just that.
The specific effect I'm trying to achieve is applying horizontal lines on a spherical object...akin to the latitude marks on globe. If you're staring at the equator, the latitude lines above bend upwards towards the pole and the reverse for those below the equator.
I could do this a number of ways and have some alternatives in mind, but Freehand's Fisheye tool seemed the easiest if there was something similar to that in Inkscape.
