Hi - I have a question regarding the superposition of two 3d objects in Mathematica. The basic picture is of a bump rotating on a sphere. By generating a bump at different positions on the sphere and concatenating the images, I can make a movie of the bump rotating. However, what I really need is a stationary (non-rotating) sphere with a bump rotating on top of it. I've tried generating the sphere and bump separately and superposing them, but the bump graphic 'erases' the sphere. What I need is to be able to 'see through' the polygons that generate the bump graphic to the stationary sphere in the center. Is there a way to superpose two graphics like this? I apologize if this is unclear, but I'm not a mathematica user myself; I'm asking this for someone who doesn't have access to the group. Best Regards, -Karl
