    export UV for photoshop painting

    hi,
    as lots know,i come from 3dsmax and am a bit lost when doing some new stuffs in lightwave.
    now i begin to manipulate voxels,i have to discover how to map models.
    so here is my question:
    is there a way to unwarp/export uv of a model in order to do my mapping in photoshop? (i guess there must be,but i keep looking for know in vain)

    thank you

    Yes, in the Modeler menu File > Export > Export Encapsulated Postscript you can save out your UVs.

    You can use the Buttons at the bottom right of modeler. Press the 'T' for texture, then on the right of that is a (none) button. Click on that and select (new) to get the Create UV texture Map panel.
    That gives you the basic options, but I use these plugins more often:

    The Make UV edit is the best solution for unwrapping an organic model.
    Push the software, don't let it push YOU!

    you might look at the plugin called uvimaginator , find it on www.flay.com . It lets you save the uv map created in lightwave .

    UV Imaginator rocks.

    Project Viper DVDs from Kurv studios include tutorials on this that I found very helpful.
