I need a plugin for Lightwave or a software app that will unwrap a spherical texture mapped object using specific mapping projections (azimuthal, gnomonic, etc.). Does anything exist that will do this?

This app uses your own source image and then creates the appropriate mapping that can be exported. Looks like it has around 40 different mapping types.
