Hello Everyone - New-ish user here. This may have already been answered but I'm looking for some guidance on properly displaying a "Jack Arch" (sometimes called "flat arch") over my double hung windows. I'd like to be able to map a brick texture in a circular pattern so that I can set a radius and have the texture map "splay" across the arch so that the brick appears to be narrower at the window head and wider at the top of the jack arch. 


In order to get close to the right look I've used a custom exterior window trim detail and modified the "above" setting to a custom 12" high. The angle on the sides is set by using a miter and setting the "side" setting at 4" but setting the material to none. This creates a near perfect representation in "shaded" renderings, but if I want to use a "textured" rending I'm out of luck because I can only get the texture to map vertically. 


Thanks in advance for the assist.

That I know of, you can't adapt the JPG texture to fill the required shape.
